Managing carbon mitigation and disclosure for large global site portfolios creates significant challenges for sustainability and energy managers. They’re faced with a trifecta of forces driving global carbon management initiatives:
Along with all these external pressures, sustainability and energy managers face internal stakeholder pressure to positively impact the bottom line. Unfortunately, due to the massive amount of often disparate and dispersed facilities-level data, most struggle to create the holistic carbon picture necessary to drive effective programs.
Global Carbon Management Services provides the expertise of Ecova’s team of carbon specialists while leveraging data to create insight and enable action that relieves these pressures. The Services enable organizations to make the best possible investment decisions and optimize carbon reduction programs while seamlessly reporting their global carbon performance. Ecova’s CDP accredited Carbon Manager software and experienced carbon experts provide unprecedented insight into your portfolio’s carbon performance, helping you target performance improvements, reduce costs, comply with current and forthcoming standards, and maximize the brand-building value of your carbon management efforts.
Further, Ecova’s Carbon Manager software features powerful business analytics tools for forecasting, scenario modeling, and project tracking. These tools help your organization make informed decisions regarding the mitigation of carbon costs and risks. Built-in reporting and intelligence tools empower sustainability managers to share carbon goals and successes with various stakeholders, earning the support required to build your energy, carbon and sustainability programs.
Carbon management also protects and strengthens your brand. A growing proportion of consumers are making purchasing decisions based on brands’ demonstration of social responsibility. Meanwhile, external ratings agencies such as CDP, the Global Reporting Initiative, and a groundswell of investment groups are publicizing ratings and industry standing assessments of companies’ carbon performance and transparency. Unfortunately, many organizations lack the carbon expertise to manage carbon initiatives and position their results in an impactful way. To meet this challenge there is no team better equipped to help clients communicate the strengths of their carbon management programs than Ecova’s team of Carbon Consultants. This team has a proven track record of partnering with our clients to ensure they achieve their best possible results—and scoring, with many clients in the 90s and several in the CDP Leadership indices.
