Sustainability & Carbon Management
The corporate social responsibility (CSR) landscape has strongly shifted to include sustainability and carbon reduction goals in the last decade. However, the path forward is often arduous and complex. A commitment to action is a great step but the hard work starts after the commitment - formulating a strategy and implementation plan to hit targets. Then the question is – how and where do you start?
A few things to consider:
- To set goals you need a baseline. How do you begin the benchmarking process?
- How do you measure Scope 1-3 emissions and which do you focus on first?
- What will the implementation plan cost and what will it save?
- Is the focus on improving local campuses, investing in large offsite projects, or both?
- What are RECs, carbon offsets, and LCFS? How do they play into a sustainability plan?
- How do you monetize existing renewable assets, and should you?
Ecom-Energy has helped organizations for decades with these same questions. We tailor short- and long-term sustainability plans that are specific to the goals of your organization. As an objective energy consulting firm, we have no ties to any specific technology or vendor – only to the customer. We utilize all sustainability tools and implement those that best align with your facilities’ targets, risk tolerance, and economic thresholds.
