CLEAResult launches Carbon Consulting Practice to guide businesses towards sustainability
Austin, TX (May 17, 2022) – Businesses are being held accountable for their environmental impact. Some companies have taken a proactive approach by announcing their plans to reach net zero, while others are considering more modest reductions to reduce operational expenditures. A few weeks ago, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a proposal requiring public companies to disclose climate risk and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data, prompting executives to examine their current energy usage.
The challenge? Business leaders don’t know where to begin.
“There’s a huge knowledge gap here,” says Rich McBee, President & CEO of CLEAResult, “and we’re uniquely qualified to not just fill it—but do it better and faster than any other business.”
CLEAResult is North America’s leading provider of energy efficiency solutions and recently became the Official Energy Efficiency Partner of the Boston Red Sox. They have worked primarily with utility companies to save homes and businesses money by reducing energy use for the past 20 years. Now, they’re expanding their expertise to work directly with forward-thinking business and community organizations like manufacturers, healthcare providers, schools, stadiums and more.
Rob Beckwith, Vice President of Sales and Business Development of the new Carbon Consulting Practice, noted, “Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have become increasingly important to investors, advisors and regulators in recent years. Over the past two decades, companies that have successfully integrated ESG performance into their corporate DNA have outperformed others in terms of stock price, overall management, and ‘peer perception’ within their respective industries.”
Leveraging two decades of experience, CLEAResult has developed practical solutions to measure and reduce businesses’ annual carbon emissions, with the ultimate goal of reaching net zero. In 2021 alone, they helped save people over $9 billion on their energy bills through efficiency upgrades and averted more than 22.8 million metric tons of CO2 emissions from our environment.
CLEAResult’s Carbon Consulting services offer a comprehensive portfolio of energy and GHG emissions reduction solutions, rather than delivering limited scopes of work. Their energy experts begin by measuring an organization’s current GHG emissions and providing energy-efficient measures to reduce them. From there, they recommend ways to transition to renewable energy and purchase carbon credits to further decrease carbon footprints. This approach enables companies to bring CLEAResult in at any stage of the process and lean on them as a singular resource for measuring, planning, implementing and improving their reduction strategies.
“We keep things simple for our clients. All the technical and tedious work is handled in-house.” McBee continued. “Businesses are busy, we get that. But when we show them how much money they’ll save and the impact it will have on our environment, all of their employees get excited–not just the executives.”
CLEAResult is currently offering free consultations for companies looking to lower their energy costs and carbon emissions. Visit CLEAResult.com/carbon-consulting for more information.
