ClimeCo Expands Sustainability Services with the Hire of Emily Damon
January 14, 2020 (Boyertown, PA) – ClimeCo announces the expansion of its sustainability services, launching a dedicated sustainability and ESG team. The team is joined by Emily Damon, who, prior to joining ClimeCo, led the North American ESG Sustainability practice for a multinational, 7,000-person consulting firm. The team brings cross-sectoral expertise in sustainability reporting, tracking, risk management, target-setting, and ESG strategy.
“Our customers are seeking advice on ESG as pressure mounts from their board, shareholders, and consumers to be more sustainable,” says Bill Flederbach, President and CEO of ClimeCo. “As expectations intensify, companies are finding them increasingly complex to navigate, so it was a natural step for us to add Emily to our sustainability team. The experience and skillset she brings to the team is key to keeping our customers on top of this challenge.”
Damon will serve as Vice President and leader of the Sustainability, Policy and Advisory team. She specializes in ESG performance and disclosure. Her work spans reporting, materiality assessment, rating and ranking optimization, and risk assessment. She also has deep expertise in corporate climate strategy, including greenhouse gas accounting, target-setting, abatement strategy, energy efficiency, and renewable energy.
“The growth we’ve seen in sustainability demands on companies continues to accelerate,” says Damon. “We help our clients turn what can be a headache into an opportunity to improve performance. This expanded ESG team, along with ClimeCo’s net-zero experts, is in a unique position to help our clients become sustainability leaders.”
Damon holds a Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering from Stanford University. She has spent over a dozen years in sustainability consulting. Her work has spanned many industries, including retail, apparel/fashion/footwear, real estate, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, energy & extractives, industrial processing, and logistics.
