Making a difference today for a better world tomorrow.

From the Desk of President & CEO – Bill Flederbach

To Our Clients & The Market –

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the ClimeCo team continues to strive to make a difference today for a better world tomorrow.  To that end, I wanted to share with you, our clients and partners, the steps that we have taken to date and the commitments that we are making going forward to ensure that we are here and available to support you and your businesses through these difficult days:

  • We have been planning for the prospect of a significant business interruption due to COVID-19 for well over a month. In early February, we started to encourage our employees to begin thinking about what they might need to sustain themselves and their families in the event of forced isolation.  This plan positioned us well for success in a work-at-home environment.
  • We instituted a work-from-home request for all employees over two weeks ago, which was prior to the local and state ordinances that have been implemented since. Because a significant portion of our North American team routinely works remotely, ClimeCo already had the management and communication systems in place to make this an easy transition.
  • ClimeCo continues to uphold our values by placing people over profit. We are fortunate to enter this crisis with a strong balance sheet and we remain committed to the welfare of our employees.  To that end, I am making a pledge to retain every member of our staff for a minimum of 90 days.  Throughout its history, ClimeCo has never laid off an employee and we do not intend to do so now!  This means that the team members that you have been working with will be here for you to continue working with.
  • As of this writing, every member of the ClimeCo team is healthy, available and dedicated to assist you by:
    • Providing our regulated clients with market intelligence while identifying unique market opportunities, and
    • Working with our project partners and the credit registries to ensure a smooth supply chain of carbon offsets for both our voluntary and compliance buyers.
    • Continuing our philanthropic efforts by seeking ways that we can help those businesses and individuals who are less fortunate during this time of need; please reach out to us if we can help!
    • From all of us here at ClimeCo, we hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe. We are dedicated to the health and safety of our team, our clients and our partners.  Together, we expect to emerge as a stronger, more resilient and more sustainable industry.  In the meantime, please let us know how we can best assist you.

Sincerely,

William “Bill” Flederbach

Always working together, even when apart. #StayHome #TeamClimeCo #WorkFromHome

  • On January 30th, the California Air Resources Board (ARB) announced the results of their investigation into alleged regulatory violations at the Scenic View Dairy. As a result of the investigation, which was initiated on November 18, 2019, ARB is invalidating 18,867 CCOs generated by the project, CALS5040-C, Scenic View Dairy.  This marks the completion of the third invalidation investigation conducted by ARB in the program’s history, and the second time CCOs have been invalidated.
  • To date, less than 1% of all issued offsets have been invalidated. However, each invalidation event reminds participants of the potential risk and potentially impacts small emitters desire to purchase non-guaranteed CCOs.
  • ARB’s next quarterly allowance auction will be held on February 19th, with results announced February 26th.

Third Eye Blind Honors ClimeCo at Band’s Final Summer Tour Stop

Throughout their Summer Gods Tour with Jimmy Eat World, Third Eye Blind has worked diligently to offset the outing’s carbon footprint.  To compensate for audience travel – the biggest source of carbon emissions from the tour – a portion of each ticket sold supported a US-based carbon offset project managed by ClimeCo, the American Land Conservancy, and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.  ClimeCo provides comprehensive solutions to help reduce the environmental impact of the general public. 

To honor ClimeCo’s fervent environmental service, Third Eye Blind presented them with a tree onstage at the band’s final tour stop in Irvine, California.  The tree will be planted at FivePoint Amphitheatre as a continued reminder of their support.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Danielle Pingitore at dpingitore@climeco.com.

ClimeCo is Selected as Project Developer of the Year

 

ClimeCo Corporation (ClimeCo) is pleased to announce its selection as Project Developer of the Year by the Climate Action Reserve (CAR), in recognition for the Most Registered Carbon Offset Projects in 2018.

CAR, North America’s premier carbon offset registry, presented the award to ClimeCo Corporation during CAR’s North American Carbon World (NACW) 2019 annual conference, which is currently being held in Los Angeles, CA, through April 26.  Award recipients are nominated based upon their demonstration of leadership in advancing climate solutions and strengthening carbon markets through the development of successful carbon offset projects that achieve real, quantifiable, verifiable, additional, and permanent emissions reductions.

“ClimeCo is celebrating ten years in business this year and to receive an award like this from CAR is a great gift,” said Bill Flederbach, President & CEO of ClimeCo.  “I am very proud of the team we have built over the last 10 years, our culture, our clients, the incredible volumes of greenhouse gases that we’ve reduced, and us being the leading producer of carbon credits within CAR.”

ClimeCo has worked with CAR for the past 10 years and has registered more than 16 million carbon offsets.  Their offset volume stems from reducing greenhouse gas emissions through several project types, including N2O Abatement, Destruction of Ozone Depleting Substances, Agricultural Methane Capture, and Organic Waste Composting.  It is the combination of their clients, their diversification, and the dedication of their project team that has allowed them to be the leader in carbon offset project development.

“CAR has been a tremendous partner for ClimeCo over the years,” said Derek Six, Chief Business Officer of ClimeCo.  “Their dedication to creating high-quality protocols and ensuring a crediting program of the utmost integrity aligns well with ClimeCo’s core values.  We are proud to be implementing creative and innovative emission reduction projects, and very much appreciate this recognition for our efforts.”

ClimeCo is an advisor, broker, and developer of both voluntary and compliance grade environmental commodity market products, with specialized expertise in California cap-and-trade, market advisory, transactional services, and project financing.
