Transitioning to a sustainable and equitable world is one of the greatest challenges humankind has faced. It’s the balance of maintaining and raising human standard of living for all, while reducing waste, loss of biodiversity, and carbon emissions – sustainable development. This requires a complete transformation of how we produce, store, and use energy.
Carbon markets play an important role. While some companies are required by state or federal regulations to manage their carbon footprints, there is a growing imperative among individuals, municipalities, and corporations to be carbon neutral or to monetize their carbon through voluntary carbon markets.
This exponentially growing world of voluntary carbon markets requires an understanding of carbon accounting, project finance, emission reduction forecasting, monitoring, reporting, verification, and the drivers for the ultimate retirement of credits. This expertise of multi-disciplinary teams is often not available in-house.
EcoEngineers helps companies navigate the quickly evolving carbon economy. Our goal is to propel organizations towards decarbonization by simplifying the market access process for projects that improve our climate.
Our team identifies, assesses, and develops projects in the voluntary and compliance carbon markets. We have experience across multiple industries – from innovative, international start-ups creating carbon-removal projects, to large-scale global energy companies developing projects to mitigate their carbon footprint or generate new streams of revenue.
Our services include:
- Strategic advisory services
- Carbon literacy training
- Investment due diligence
- Feasibility studies
- GHG project development
- GHG project registration
- Methodology development
- White papers
