Carbon Reduction and Product LCA
In a world that is rapidly warming up, and as a response to legal and social pressures, businesses need to develop innovative and cost-effective ways to limit their adverse effects on climate change.
As organizations need to increase their level of engagement with their stakeholders, they have to implement innovative sustainability programs that provide added value, while at the same time support the corporate sustainability strategy.
Carbon Reduction and Offsetting
CSE has expertise in international best practices for conducting carbon footprint, which includes the GHG Protocol Standard and ISO 14064. CSE offers Carbon Footprint reduction and cost savings, Greenhouse Gas Emissions Verification and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Offsetting for Carbon Neutral operations
Energy Audits and Cost Benefit Analysis
An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy usage in a building, process, or system for the purpose of energy conservation and to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the outputs.
For an organization an energy audit offers solutions for reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions and costs related to energy efficiency. Following the completion of an energy audit CSE proposes measures for continuous reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions and associated costs.
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a methodology for assessing the environmental aspects associated with a product over its life cycle. The most important application is the analysis of the contribution of the life cycle stages to the overall environmental load, usually with the aim of prioritizing improvements on products, materials, and/or business processes.
Fresh water is a scarce resource; its annual availability is limited and demand is growing. The water footprint of humanity has exceeded sustainable levels in several places and is unequally distributed among people. Accurate and comprehensive information about the water footprint of communities and businesses will help to understand how we can achieve a more sustainable and equitable use of fresh water. The water footprint helps to show the existing link between our daily consumption of goods and the problems of water depletion and pollution that exist elsewhere, in the regions where our goods are produced.
CSE has extensive expertise in measuring the Water Footprint of products and operations based on the Water Footprint Network guidelines. Reducing the water footprint can be part of the environmental strategy of a business (like reducing the carbon footprint) as many businesses face serious risks related to freshwater shortage in their operations or supply chain.
