Yahoo! Carbon Neutrality Program

Categorized Under: Energy, Program Management + IT Management



ICF assisted in developing Yahoo!’s worldwide carbon neutrality program by completing a comprehensive greenhouse gas inventory, including electricity and fuel use associated with Yahoo!’s office buildings and datacenters as well as business travel and employee commuting. ICF identified opportunities to reduce Yahoo!’s carbon footprint through a benchmarking study of the company’s core facilities, allowing Yahoo! to consider energy-efficient options and on-site renewable generation, including solar services.

ICF now assists Yahoo! with its entry into the carbon offset market by soliciting, reviewing, and performing due diligence on carbon offset project proposals to ensure carbon neutrality strategy through the purchase of high-quality, verifiable, "additional" carbon offsets that effectively communicate Yahoo!’s goals of global community empowerment. ICF performs similar carbon strategy work for Google, eBay, News Corp., HSBC, and a number of similarly high-profile U.S. and international companies.
