Because we are innovative problem solvers
We are aware that environmental degradation, poverty, and climate change have become some of the most challenging problems facing humanity in the 21st century. Also, we share the view expressed by Albert Einstein regarding the impossibility of solving present problems by thinking in the same way as when they were created (see Michael Amrine, The Real Problem is in the Hearts of Man, New York Times Magazine (23 June 1946)). Therefore, we take it as our main task to contribute to the invention of new patterns for development “that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (see UN Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development: Our Common Future, Chapter 2: Towards Sustainable Development).

Because our approach is based on an expanded spectrum of values for measuring success
In the context of every project we undertake, we consider an expanded spectrum of values that includes economic, environmental, and social concerns consistent with the concept of sustainable development adopted by the United Nations 2005 World Summit. Our focus on improving for our clients a triple bottom line: People, Planet, Profit, not only strengthens their operational or manufacturing effectiveness, but also their standing in the community, given that those three components of sustainable development are regarded as interdependent and mutually reinforcing pillars.

Because we care about environmental and human sustainability, and so should our clients
On the one hand, reducing the impact of business endeavors on climate change and devising ways to achieve sustainability are integral to corporate responsibility. On the other hand, the regulatory pressure to reduce the carbon footprint of industries, business and civil activities is constantly increasing and it is important to prepare to comply with the applicable regulations. In current international human rights legal doctrine and practice, it is generally accepted that all members of society, including non-state actors, have responsibilities. States must implement their human rights obligations at the domestic level by imposing duties to all persons within their jurisdiction to protect the enjoyment of recognized rights. In fact, the duty to protect of the States is actually emerging as an indirect way to promote compliance with social and economic rights standards by non-state actors, including transnational corporations (TNCs) (see The Responsibilities of States for Actions of Transnational Corporations Affecting Social and Economic Rights: A Comparative Analysis of the Duty to Protect). Nobody can afford ignoring that sustainability and business practices now go hand-in-hand. Consequently, Transcarbon assists its clients in implementing sustainability principles that help them identify and address inefficiencies in their operations and lower the risk of incurring environmental liability. Finally, as stated in the Declaration of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment that took place in Stockholm in 1972 (para. 6), “[t]o defend and improve the human environment for present and future generations has become an imperative goal for mankind.”

Because we are experts on addressing environmental and developmental dilemmas
We have the diverse expertise and experience required to overcome a variety of environmental dilemmas, while constructively addressing business challenges and initiatives. Our cutting edge methodologies help identify the highest value-added projects and devise cost-effective and efficient solutions. In other words, Transcarbon makes it possible for its clients to obtain concrete benefits from sustainable development practices by designing the building blocks of their own sustainability, offering them practical solutions tailored to their particular business and needs.

Because we build capacity and are comitted to continuous learning
We believe that by sharing knowledge and experiences in the course of our day-to-day activities, it is possible to build long-term ability for our clients to identify and solve their own problems and risks. At the same time, our deep commitment to continuous learning and the enriching exchange with a broad range of institutions, companies, and persons that require our services, is constantly opening new opportunities for Transcarbon to continue growing and developing innovative solutions.

Because we are socially responsible and abide by the highest ethical and professional standards
