Advisory Services for Decarbonization

Analysis, pragmatic planning, and smart execution for reaching your science-based and net zero climate goals.

Comprehensive Support for Scopes 1, 2, and 3

Large organizations are increasingly under pressure to decarbonize their operations—meaningfully and comprehensively. Coho will work collaboratively with you to develop a customized, cost-effective strategy to achieve your climate goals across all three scopes.

Scope 1

Emissions from assets owned or operated by the company, such as tailpipe emissions from company vehicles or emissions from gas heating systems in company buildings.

Example projects

  • Electrification
  • Fuel switching, such as biogas
  • Rigorous vetting of offsets for credibility

Scope 2

Emissions from purchased electricity used by the organization. See our Clean Energy service line for details on how we advise clients on this scope.

Example projects

  • Wind, solar, or hydro power purchase agreements
  • Onsite solar
  • Virtual net metering

Scope 3

Emissions created anywhere in the company’s value chain, including supplier emissions and any emissions from use of the company’s products.

Example projects

  • Supplier engagement programs
  • Scope 3 inventory
  • Company-supplier clean energy aggregations

Gain the Confidence to Be Truly Ambitious

The United Nations has urged the world to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Companies are expected to publicly disclose and meet science-based or net zero climate goals. Is your company leading, or behind?

No matter where you are on your climate journey, Coho can meet you where you are and help you chart the path ahead. Our approach combines intelligent analysis, methodical planning, and meaningful relationship-building so that clients achieve the real-world emissions reductions they seek. So, aim high.

Leading Change

It Takes the Whole Business to Change a Business

You need your entire organization on board. We understand that change takes time, internal engagement, and buy-in. That’s why change management is so vital to everything we do.

We will help you collaborate with decision-makers across departments to get the backing you need for significant climate projects with lasting impact.
