Achieving Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction Goals

Categorized Under: Energy



At ICF International, we have an approach that takes advantage of the strengths of engineers, sustainability consultants, and energy services companies (ESCOs) to help clients selectively use the support they need to achieve energy reduction goals quickly and cost effectively. This paper outlines our specific sequential approach for working with companies, municipalities, and government agencies looking to measure, analyze, track, and reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and energy consumption.
