OXFORD, U.K., Nov. 22 /CSRwire/ - As the renewable energy revolution gathers pace, ClimateCare is set to help companies cut through the complexity of purchasing renewable energy certificates across diverse global markets with its fully managed renewable energy service. The award-winning climate and development experts will streamline every aspect of managing the process, from matching companies’ operating locations to navigating diverse layers of certification and ensuring that clients purchase certificates from environmentally sound projects.
As corporate interest has grown, following the GHG Protocol’s 2015 change to Scope 2 emissions reporting rules, ClimateCare’s move to refine its service is a direct response to feedback from companies that have experienced real challenges in purchasing renewable energy.
“The opportunity to ‘zero rate’ emissions associated with purchased electricity has provided companies with a strategic means of fulfilling renewable energy and carbon reduction commitments,” explains George Beechener, Client Manager at ClimateCare. “However, the reality of procuring and managing tens of thousands of certificates in a complex global market has been far from simple. We’re offering companies a transparent, straightforward way to manage their renewable energy portfolio by entrusting their purchases to an expert partner.”
The new fully managed service is also timely as stakeholders, including the investment community, push for action on climate risks, policy-makers move to introduce new regulations to fulfil Paris Agreement pledges and companies seek to gain a competitive edge by demonstrating leadership on sustainability.
So how will the service work?
A dedicated ClimateCare account manager works closely with clients, forming a deep understanding of the company’s renewable energy requirements and stakeholder priorities, tailoring a portfolio designed to meet their needs and providing clear updates on pricing. ClimateCare’s brand and marketing experts will also help companies to maximise the value of their renewable energy purchases by advising on effective stakeholder communications.
“Opting for a comprehensive, fully managed service with a trusted, independent partner is an efficient, cost-effective way of balancing Scope 2 emissions and meeting sustainability targets,” continues George Beechener. “It also frees up sustainability and energy professionals to focus on other efforts to cut carbon.”
With 20 years’ experience in advising companies and governments on creating positive environmental impacts and in-depth knowledge of complex carbon trading and renewable energy systems, ClimateCare’s experts are well placed to guide companies through complex renewable energy purchases. In particular, the ClimateCare team has access to a diverse range of projects, locations and certificate types at a global level, and is able to match these with clients’ budget, volume and location requirements. Additionally, the team’s strict due diligence process provides companies with peace of mind surrounding the quality and integrity of their certificates.
