Carbon Footprint Assessment & Reduction
The ClearSky team works with clients to perform comprehensive greenhouse gas assessments or carbon footprints. Based on the footprint, we develop strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and provide options for our clients to offset the emissions that can’t be avoided. ClearSky can provide tailored technical assistance to companies, institutions, and organizations at individual and group levels. This process may involve site visits, seminars, workshops, or training programs. We use credible and innovative methodologies such as the World Resources Institute’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the recommended methods of the International Panel on Climate Change, as well as peer-reviewed research. We ensure that our clients are getting the best information possible about their carbon footprint and provide concrete solutions to reduce it.
Our carbon footprint assessment and reduction services include: carbon footprint assessment for organizations and companies, carbon footprint estimates for events, and consulting for individuals.
