We’re answering all your ES questions!

There’s a lot to learn in the environmental services industry. From figuring out what an Internal Price of Carbon is to understanding the best practice for an Environmental Impact Report (EIR), people sometimes need to break down the basics. FCS compiled our most frequently asked questions so far this year: 

What is an Internal Price of Carbon? 

Internal Carbon Pricing allows companies to assess the financial implications of their carbon emissions and encourages increased energy efficiency. This voluntary carbon pricing tool intrinsically complements governments’ GHG emission reduction policies companies are subjected to. Identify other tools to define carbon offsets here. 

What is an EIR? 

An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is an informational document that discloses potential significant environmental effects of a proposed project for the public as well as public agency decision-makers, identifying a reasonable range of alternatives that would reduce or avoid them. Find out other benefits that an EIR provides here. 

What are Greenhouse Gases (GHGs)? 

Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) are compound gases that trap heat or longwave radiation in the atmosphere. Their presence makes the Earth’s surface warmer. Sunlight or shortwave radiation easily passes through these gases and the atmosphere. Find out more about GHGs here.
