Climate Smart Business, Inc.
Environmental Impact Measurement and Monitoring
Climate Smart is a social enterprise that trains businesses and provides them with software tools to track and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. By taking a close look at the energy they consume, the waste they produce, how they move goods and people around, Climate Smart’s client businesses often find ways to reduce their environmental impact while cutting costs or improving operational efficiencies. Because Climate Smart teaches (as opposed to doing the work for companies), businesses build up their internal capacity to manage carbon emissions. Through a combination of small-group training sessions, software, and one-on-one coaching, Climate Smart helps businesses help develop green job skills in their staff that will become increasingly relevant in the economy of the future.
Climate Smart's mission is to empower and enable organizations to reduce their emissions, strengthen their businesses, and take action on something they care about. They want to facilitate the move towards a more resilient and sustainable economy. Climate Smart also partners with local governments and other organizations to create novel relationships between public bodies and private enterprise.
