Consider us your outsourced sustainability department.
We help you build a reliable and accurate carbon accounting program.
We make it easy for you to report to (CDP, SASB, GRI), reduce (IPCC or SBTI) and eliminate (carbon neutral programs).
All successful sustainability/ESG programs have one thing in common, and that is a robust carbon accounting effort.
Most organizations start with accounting for their scope 1, 2 emissions and then evolve into accounting for scope 3 emissions. It is widely reported that more than 85% of Fortune 500 organizations measure their carbon footprint.
Many organizations measure their emissions as part of reporting efforts to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) or Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), as part of customer requirements like Walmart’s Project Gigaton, The Sustainability Consortium Product Sustainability Tool Kits, The Higg Index, as part of participation in voluntary programs like the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTI) or UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to meet federal requirement programs through GSA’s Oasis+ or the Federal Supplier Climate Risks and Resilience proposed rule, to comply with evolving state legislation such as California’s SB-253 Climate Corporate Data Accountability Act, or to meet the carbon accounting requirements of certifications like Cradle to Cradle, BIFMA Level, NSF 140, Green Squared and others.
Our team holds professional credentials in measuring and reporting GHG emissions and has been awarded for our extensive carbon accounting work.
GREENHOUSE GAS (GHG) INVENTORY
WAP partnered with leading technology companies to develop the Protocol for Measuring Embodied Carbon in the Built Environment. A Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory is a measurement of the carbon emissions of your organization.
Let us help you measure your carbon footprint and strategize ways for improvement with a Greenhouse Gas Inventory.
Carbon Accounting efforts are a foundational starting point for any sustainability program. The deliverable associated with carbon accounting is the completion of a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory in accordance with the widely used World Resources Institute and World Business Council for Sustainable Development Corporate Carbon Accounting GHG Protocol.
It is intended to be a reoccurring effort similar to financial accounting and used to track progress towards sustainability or ESG goals (like 25% reduction in carbon by 2025). As such, WAP is committed to helping our clients not only measure GHG emissions but also build processes to facilitate repeatable accounting practices.
Our processes follow protocol from the World Resource Institute Greenhouse Gas Protocol(s) and the reporting requirements of ISO 14064. We target all material scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 emissions in our processes and specialize in helping organizations improve emissions accounting over time.
CARBON OFFSETS / ENVIRONMENTAL COMMODITIES
WAP is a partner to many carbon brokerages and exchanges and organizes bulk buys of environmental commodities (RECs, Offsets, Water Offsets, VERs, PPAs, ERCs, etc.) for its clients on a quarterly basis. These bulk buys save clients a significant amount of money by leveraging aggregated purchasing power..
Embodied Carbon Accounting
WAP partnered with leading technology companies to develop the Protocol for Measuring Embodied Carbon in the Built Environment.
WAP partnered with leading technology companies to develop the Protocol for Measuring Embodied Carbon in the Built Environment. WAP Sustainability is a leader in executing this protocol to measure the embodied carbon impact of a building project. Our approach is useful for both the procurement of low carbon materials (LEED WBLCA + LEED Low Carbon Procurement Pilot Credit) as well as fostering accountability of embodied carbon reporting through GRI and CDP.
