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 (FCS) makes achieving those goals efficient and cost-effective. Only FCS 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.
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. FCS encourages this practice for several reasons:
Outsource the administrative tasks and data entry components of your LCA to FCS, and you’ll dramatically reduce your overall program costs as well.
From retail giants to government procurement agencies, your customers increasingly require transparent and comprehensive sustainability data from suppliers.
Our LCA services provide you with ready access to data on your processes, your systems, and sustainability on a product-by-product level. With that data at your fingertips, you’ll improve your status as a supplier of choice in a sustainability-driven marketplace.
Underpinning our solutions for industry are robust tools and data processing services that allow easy and accurate tracking of your sustainability indicators, going beyond assessing carbon footprint and GHG emissions to encompass water, waste, and a full spectrum of natural resources throughout your supply chain.
