Sustainability & Decarbon­ization Services

Greeneum is your expert partner and guide in decarbonization and sustainability, helping you prepare for the transitions ahead. Our process is accessible because the challenge is daunting. We meet clients wherever they are in their sustainability journey. Some are starting out, while others need help refining or executing their plans. Each client engagement is unique. All services are available à la carte, but an end-to-end approach may include the phases described below—including strategy, implementation, measuring and tracking your progress, and sharing your journey through best-in-class storytelling. We work with change makers to tell their stories—building brand loyalty, establishing thought leadership, and moving the world closer to a net-zero future.

For businesses considering the use of carbon accounting software, we offer assistance in defining technical requirements for and selecting the best-fit software solution with our vendor-agnostic approach. However, it’s important to note that while software can be a powerful tool, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of carbon accounting data requires human expertise. That’s where we come in. At Greeneum, we can help to validate your data and navigate choosing not just the right tool but the right calculation methodologies and emission factors, ensuring the resulting carbon footprint is robust and reliable, providing a solid foundation for your sustainability journey.
