Keeping Your Business Energy Compliant
Navigating a multitude of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting needs and federal, state and local regulations can be one of the most complicated undertakings you face when managing your organization’s energy strategy and systems. Depending on your industry sector, compliance can apply to everything from health and safety measures to tracking U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions on your way to your net zero goals.
Supporting ESG Reporting
As organizations increase transparency, reporting on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) gains has become a critical business function. We work with clients to develop appropriate energy-related goals that align with your organization’s energy strategy.
At Environ, our energy strategies are built on understanding your organization’s EPA Scope 1 and Scope 2 goals and ensuring they’re clear and accurate ways of measuring steps toward those goals. And we help you aim higher, understanding that improving your performance is always preferable to simply offsetting your emissions.
Understanding the Regulations
Our knowledgeable experts are fully versed in energy management systems standards aimed at best practices. Every strategy is built on an understanding of the relevant regulatory developments, local permitting nuances and complying with reporting needs. Many of our team members hold both LEED credentials and Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) certifications. Our certifications with the U.S. Green Building Council, International WELL Building Institute, Building Energy Exchange and U.S. Resiliency Council help promote efficiency programs. Tools like our Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System™ (STARS) self-performance survey are useful benchmarks whether you represent a high-achieving institution or are taking first steps toward sustainability.
Data Is the Key
At Environ, our energy consulting is built on understanding your current energy profile, setting clear and accurate goals, and ensuring that there are ways of tracking your steps toward those goals.
Whether that data is to support ever-changing compliance needs or to report on ESG goals, we understand data collection is not once-and-done.
Often, the first step toward compliance and reporting is an energy-usage audit to both develop a baseline and identify issues. And ongoing, real-time data ensures we can track the impact of energy strategies, report on gains in performance, comply with financial and equipment warranty needs, and identify gaps between planned and actual performance.
YOUR PATH TO CRITICAL COMPLIANCE
Understand the challenge. Regulatory compliance is a complicated element of energy management, as it differs from location to location and sector to sector.
Consult with our knowledgeable experts. Our compliance specialists have years of experience developing energy strategies that comply with regulatory developments and local laws.
We’ll work with you to implement data-driven analytics, which provides a baseline for measuring ESG goals or filling gaps in your energy management systems.
