Decarbonize, Efficiently

One of the biggest threats to your company is being caught unprepared when decarbonization moves from a nice-to-have to a must-have.

Scope 1 & 2 Emissions

Our Efficiency-First Approach to Decarbonizing Industry

By choosing to implement hundreds of small energy efficiency projects first, with an ‘and not or’ mentality, industrial facilities are set up to make a larger impact over time.  

There are often solutions with a negative cost of carbon that can be implemented first so that  you can address solutions with associated costs later. It’s often cheaper to reduce carbon emissions than to continue emitting them. 

This approach also places an emphasis on a persistent and aggressive reduction of Scope 1  and Scope 2 emissions that will take collaboration between the C-suite and facilities teams. 

Through our work with industrial facilities, applying this efficiency-first approach, we have created a Decarbonization Framework to further assist our customers in their decarbonization journeys.

Going big on energy efficiency across all sites produces valuable cost savings and is the lowest cost form of decarbonization. These early wins will come from “teams of teams” across the organization in the form of front-loaded low- and no-cost operations and maintenance energy savings projects.
