Consult with us, and you will be surprised: it pays to reduce your carbon footprint.
We can determine your emissions baseline, define the most cost-effective solutions to reduce your emissions, quantify the volume of emission credits your business can generate, and optimize the return on investment for projects designed to take into account your own operational constraints.
Transcarbon offers a broad range of creative business development, technical and legal consulting services in the areas of climate change and sustainable development. In a world where information is power, we have established an international network of scientists, engineering researchers, and legal experts who can apprise our clients of the newest legislative developments and the optimal technology to address their needs, to then support its implementation, customization, or improvement process as required.

In providing strategic and tactical recommendations, we always remain mindful that the world needs practical solutions to real problems. This is why Transcarbon is committed to searching for the most viable alternatives in a continuous effort to
bridge the gap between practices, science, and legislation.
Total carbon assets managment

From accounting and reporting, to trading greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, we provide total carbon assets management assistance. Our experts can produce emissions inventories to help our clients determine their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions baseline. By taking a holistic approach to environmental matters and using advanced analytical and modeling tools, Transcarbon also identifies the most effective solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of its clients. Finally, we work with our clients in developing trading methodologies unique to their needs and manufacturing processes and in the implementation of carbon trading projects.

We thrive to optimize processes, replace or recycle chemicals, and ensure the transfer of clean technologies to
reduce the environmental impact of the activities developed by our clients, while improving their financial performance. In fact, reducing GHG emissions can be a win-win solution for both the environment and private or public financial needs, because generating carbon offsets can generate additional revenues. Also, by facilitating access to carbon investment funds, we help our clients identify funding sources to minimize their upfront capital investment to reduce emissions.

Transcarbon provides
carbon trading turnkey solutions, in the framework of the system created by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol among other regulatory and voluntary carbon trading systems existing worldwide, working with our clients through every step of the process: the initial carbon footprint analysis, the selection or design of appropriate carbon trading methodologies, the drafting of project design documents, the elaboration of a monitoring plan, the validation with third parties and securing all necessary approvals from the respective regulatory bodies for the issuance of carbon credits, the identification of potential buyers, and the negotiation and drafting of emission reduction purchase agreements (ERPAs).

Among the
innovative technical tools that Transcarbon puts at the service of its clients when working on a specific project are the Carbon Cap System (CC-S) and the Carbon Cap Optimization (CC-O) methodologies, specifically designed to characterize and optimize environmental and carbon footprints.
CC-S is a life cycle methodology that can be used to characterize complex manufacturing or operational systems for which there is little or no information, or large uncertainties on emission factors.

is a methodology based on metaheuristic algorithms that can be used to optimize emissions reduction projects across entire manufacturing lines and at the enterprise level.
Complementarily, Transcarbon can provide environmental and carbon footprint management tools to be used at the enterprise level to manage emissions inventories, report emissions, and trade carbon credits. All these tools may be combined, used in a sequence, or applied separately, depending on the stage of the project at which our assistance is required and its specific characteristics.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and environmental compliance

We can reduce your environmental liability exposure and assist you in achieving sustainable development goals and environmental standards through performing impact assessments of the environmental, social, and economic effects of your projects at an early planning stage and recommending suitable measures to address them. Also, we can design, develop, or improve environmental policies, programs, and services, in addition to offering you comprehensive compliance support and guidance through complex regulations and standards. We will ensure that you stay abreast of upcoming policy changes and are able to anticipate and prepare for legislative innovations.
We assist our clients in achieving sustainable development goals and environmental standards most effectively by performing Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) at the earliest possible stage of their projects. Applying an integrated multidisciplinary approach, through the different steps of these assessments we identify and evaluate the potential positive and negative environmental, social, and economic effects of an existing or planned business development, industrial activity, or public work initiative, and help our clients find the best solutions. EIAs are based on scientific, engineering, and economic parameters, in addition to consultation with the applicable government agencies, the general public, particular communities, interest groups, and other stakeholders directly affected by a specific project, as well as on our professional judgment.

Transcarbon makes it possible for decision makers to count on its assessment tools to obtain all necessary information regarding the potential environmental impact of a prospective project and its social and economic implications. Consequently, environmental and social considerations can be integrated in development planning prior to proceeding with a project. In other words, through the processes of carbon footprint analyses and EIAs, all relevant positive and adverse effects of development proposals are identified, predicted, evaluated, and enhanced or mitigated, before a final decision is made, to facilitate
sustainable development planning and management.

Another important part of our work is to advise our private and public clients regarding
environmental laws and policies, both domestic and international, as well as on any matters concerning compliance with the applicable legal framework. At their request, we analyze the relevant legislation and public policies to issue pertinent recommendations on sustainable development issues. For example, we are now working in Africa to adapt carbon emission factors and develop a country specific inventory tool to assess greenhouse gas emissions.

We also provide our clients
comprehensive environmental compliance assistance. Environmental regulation, particularly climate change legislation, is evolving very rapidly. Environmental compliance has thus become an ever-changing and highly complex area. Consequently, in addition to counting on specialized technical research and assistance, Transcarbon’s clients can find our legal research and advising services very helpful without having to incur in major additional permanent costs, while reducing significant exposure to liability deriving from potential or actual compliance failures. Among the services we offer are the keeping track of the ongoing development of national emission standards and other environmental standards, advise on compliance aspects, management of compliance activities, drafting of required reports, assistance in the context of inspections, and performance of audits. A compliance audit may include an exhaustive assessment of data related to a specific facility, from permits to project planning, infrastructure, operations and processes.
