AvantGarde Group helps public and private-sector clients around the world measure their carbon footprint, plan for decarbonization, develop climate change projects and secure climate finance for their implementation. In doing so, we draw on our extensive experience with international climate funds, structuring market-based carbon transactions, and identifying and assessing GHG emission reduction opportunities.
Biggest companies around the world successfully measure their carbon footprint and disclose this information to attract additional investment, improve the efficiency of their operations and analyze climate risks. The list of such companies is quite long and includes not only industrial giants, but also smaller enterprises. Measuring and reducing a company's carbon footprint also has a strategic value, as a company's climate responsibility ensures the company's long-term competitiveness and the attention of a growing generation of conscious investors and consumers.
However, calculating your carbon footprint is a tedious process.
AvantGarde Group has extensive experience in developing systems for calculating direct and indirect emissions (Scope 1-3) for corporate clients in various sectors: banking, industry, services, and so on. Our approach is to calculate and estimate the carbon footprint in detail, set quantitative targets for reducing emissions, and develop an appropriate strategy to achieve this goal, which includes individual actions and measures to reduce the company's emissions. Moreover, we also train our corporate clients on the aforementioned topics, develop investment projects to reduce the carbon footprint throughout the company's supply chain, and projects to offset carbon footprint outside the company.
Our main success factor lies in our passion to ensure that climate change and local economic and social development go hand in hand and that every tonne of CO2 emissions reduced also brings economic and social benefits via new jobs, cleaner local environment, and increased revenue.
