We Provide What Leaders Need
Practical approaches to reducing carbon emissions
What's at Stake
Climate change is happening, and it’s impacting communities and ecosystems worldwide. Increasingly intense, more frequent extreme weather events too often wreak havoc on communities, especially low-income populations. Some communities are being forced to relocate as coastal land loss and floods destroy homes and infrastructure. Others are seeing droughts and fires diminish their water supply and scar landscapes.
It’s time that we made a concerted global effort to mitigate these effects. Reducing and preventing greenhouse gas emissions is crucial. Our work helps decision makers understand and protect the natural systems that sequester and store carbon and supports industries and cities in finding alternatives that reduce carbon emissions.
Protecting and Stewarding Natural Systems That Store Carbon
Many elements of the natural environment store carbon – forests, soil, plants, oceans – and it is critical that we protect and steward these assets. At Earth Economics, we assess and inform sustainable land use practices that support carbon storage. Our analyses help decision makers to make the best choices for climate mitigation efforts, whether that be preventing deforestation or improving agricultural practices to reduce carbon.
Reducing Industry and Urban Areas' Dependence on Carbon
We work with industry leaders to determine the best, most cost-effective low carbon alternatives to industrial processes, from alternative fuels or renewable energy to supply chain improvements. Our comprehensive benefit-cost analyses provide compelling evidence that enables the strongest decisions to help our partners move away from carbon as quickly as possible.
