Life-Cycle Analysis

The first step toward reduction and monetization is measurement.

Clean energy regulations, investment opportunities in voluntary carbon markets, and incentive programs such as the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) all have product Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) as their foundation. LCA is the praxis and application of carbon accounting. Eco is a leader in performing LCAs, using a systematic and comprehensive method for evaluating the environmental impact of your products, services, or systems from inception to end-of-life. We help you assess the environmental aspects and impacts throughout the entire life cycle of a product, including the extraction of raw materials, production, transportation, use, and disposal. Find out how we can guide you.

Compliance Management

Comprehensive support, training, and management.

Clean energy regulations are complicated, and the penalties are high for non-compliance or misreporting. Our team is trained in carbon accounting frameworks and reporting structures unique to the regulatory compliance requirements of most major clean fuels and climate regulations across North America and Europe. We offer comprehensive compliance support, compliance management, and training programs that ensure strong data control and quality for reporting purposes — the assurance you need to protect your investment in a clean energy project.

For non-regulated green claims or to report progress in addressing a climate-related risk to a business, our compliance team can identify material data sources that will pivot the results behind green claims and help you put in place protocols to monitor and report those results. A strong evidence-based data collection and reporting structure and staff trained in carbon accounting is the protection needed to prevent greenwashing claims. We’ll help protect your interests by keeping you compliant.

Regulatory Engagement

Support for your strategic projects.

Policy is a product of stakeholder input, and it’s important to have your voice heard. With the myriad of policies striving to reduce emissions, keeping up with regulations across the globe is necessary to understand risks and opportunities hidden in the emerging energy landscape.

Our Regulatory Engagement team conducts research and maintains a working relationship with fuel and climate regulators worldwide. Our team stays current on key local, state, national, and international legislative, regulatory, and policy developments to help guide your regulatory strategy, to advise you of emerging risks, and to assist you in determining your business or project’s viability under new and overlapping regulatory regimes.

The carbon marketplace is a rapidly evolving sector and actively engaging with emerging regulations and policy interpretations is vital when the investment is high, and the outcomes are unclear.
