Environmental Consulting for Industrial
Uncover hidden costs. Discover untapped opportunities.
Accounting for a significant proportion of total greenhouse gas emissions, heavy industry faces high energy and resource costs, pervasive regulation, and a critical public eye. That’s why industrial clients have the most to gain from smart energy management and sustainability programs – in terms of profitability and in meeting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and compliance obligations.
FirstCarbon Solutions makes achieving those goals efficient and cost-effective. Only FirstCarbon Solutions fully integrates consulting and software with unmatched expertise in back office data processing to put you on the path to sustainable, compliant profitability.
We’ll help you track and measure the sustainability of all your business inputs and outputs – how much waste you produce, how much water you consume and from where, and in what condition you return it to the environment. And of course, we’ll help you evaluate where you can conserve resources to reduce costs and risks throughout your supply chain – improving both your environmental performance and your profitability.
LCA or Carbon Footprint?
To optimize economies of scale and minimize costs, many industrial clients elect to conduct a full life cycle assessment (LCA) at the time they conduct a carbon footprint. FirstCarbon Solutions encourages this practice for several reasons:
- Implementing carbon footprint, energy efficiency, and LCA measures concurrently is more cost-effective, as they share much of the same data.
- Performing a life cycle assessment of your entire process lets you simultaneously evaluate multiple products, product lines, and processes.
- LCA data can be used to drive a wider range of business decisions to improve supply-chain and product line sustainability and profitability.
Outsource the administrative tasks and data entry components of your LCA to FirstCarbon Solutions, and you’ll dramatically reduce your overall program costs as well.
