A Climate Action Plan is a strategy to cost-effectively achieve meaningful reductions, based on a greenhouse gas inventory and a set of reduction targets. Because emissions result from a diverse set of activities, it is necessary to assess all avenues to achieve reductions and create a meaningful set of metrics to aid in decision-making. Some actions will save money by reducing operations costs, while others will have important environmental or community co-benefits, which are important for enhancing your company’s brand and reputation. Other recommended actions will help you mitigate against future impacts of climate change on your business. A useful Climate Action Plan will be adaptive and guide efficient and effective implementation of emissions reductions strategies to reach targets. EcoShift’s experts create comprehensive climate action plans strategy to address your greenhouse gas footprint and other goals. We create decision-metrics for a series of emissions-cutting projects. Our clear, holistic, and adaptable process results in a decision tool you can use to choose the best options for your organization. For each potential project, we estimate total upfront costs, available financing options and incentives, total cost savings, changes in annual energy consumption, cost per ton of GHG reductions, payback periods, and net present value. We also document any co-benefits, including public visibility, natural resource consumption, health and safety, and air and water emissions. In addition to Climate Action Plan strategy and development, EcoShift consistently works to implement various agencies’ Climate Action Plans by designing and executing on-the-ground projects and programs that align with Plan goals and reduce carbon.
