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.  She loves a good challenge, whether it’s a spreadsheet or stakeholder, and is proud to support ClimeCo’s mission — making a difference today for a better world tomorrow.

ClimeCo Green Launches a New Website to Calculate and Reduce Your Carbon Footprint



December 1, 2020 (Boyertown, PA) –
 ClimeCo Green, a division of ClimeCo LLC, announces the launch of its new website that provides individuals the opportunity to offset their household carbon footprint easily. With rising greenhouse gas (GHG) levels resulting from human activities, we must all take responsibility for climate change. ClimeCo Green allows individuals to do their part by helping them understand and then reduce their carbon emissions by purchasing carbon offsets, which are generated by projects that either sequester or permanently destroy carbon emissions, preventing them from impacting our climate. 

In 2020, many of us found ourselves working and learning from our homes versus our offices and schools. This change came at a more significant price than we may have initially considered. Instead of being out and about during the day, we found ourselves in our homes using more electricity to power our laptops and computers while running our heating and air conditioning systems for extended periods to feel comfortable and productive. We noticed our electricity, grocery, and gas bills were higher than usual. Yet, we may not have realized that our household carbon footprints were also more significant than they had been. Carbon offsets from ClimeCo Green are a great way to mitigate our carbon footprints and are an essential path for individuals to achieve the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral. 

Everyone’s carbon footprint is different, depending on their location, habits, and personal choices. ClimeCo Green offers an easy-to-use e-commerce platform that makes it simple to calculate household carbon emissions and to purchase offsets that mitigate them. Our calculator estimates an individual’s footprint in five key areas: home energy, transportation, food, goods, and services. This calculation provides you with a basic understanding of your unique impact and compares it against others within your area.  It then offers you the option to purchase offsets from one or more of several featured projects. The entire process generally takes less than 5 minutes to complete.

In addition to purchasing offsets, ClimeCo Green also provides the user with incentives, environmental tips, rebates, and products that allow you to improve your everyday life by reducing emissions, waste, and water and energy use. Visit us at www.ClimeCoGreen.com to see how we can help you live greener and healthier!

ClimeCo Makes Strategic Investment in EarthUP, Inc., an Innovative Sustainability Solutions Company


Boyertown, PA, November 4, 2020
– ClimeCo is pleased to announce that it has purchased a minority stake in EarthUP, Inc. (EarthUP.eco), a recent start-up focused on providing web-based sustainability solutions for employers and their employees. EarthUP provides effective environmental tips, rebates, and products to individuals, and a platform for their employers to encourage them in these efforts.  This platform gives employers the ability to measure and report emissions related to their employees, bridging a key information gap in their companies’ understanding of their full environmental impact.  ClimeCo (ClimeCo.com) will provide environmental solutions to EarthUP and is excited to support such an innovative concept. 

“In light of the shift of many employees to telecommuting over the past seven months, understanding employee greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts have never been more significant for employers,” says Derek Six, ClimeCo’s Chief Business Officer.  “This shift enabled us to see that the employee-employer relationship doesn’t necessarily end at the exit door of the business.  The same ideas that help employees reduce their environmental impact also contribute to cost savings and improved health, productivity, and employee retention. EarthUP’s proposal to create a partnership between businesses and their employees is a revelation.” 

ClimeCo has many clients who are doing their best to address their corporate environmental impacts, and this exciting new tool will help them to engage with their employees.  For individuals, EarthUP provides tips to reduce emissions, traffic, energy, waste, and water, and offers incentives they can use to improve their living environments at home.  The unique part about EarthUP’s platform is it allows employees and employers to work together to quantify and address environmental impacts.

“At EarthUP, we believe that by solving sustainability problems, we solve business problems”, says Stephen Bay, EarthUp’s CEO.  “We are confident this truth is magnified when companies involve their employees, and we are looking for corporate partners to be leaders in proving this.” 

EarthUP is currently conducting its pilot phase and expects to launch its public version in January.  The web-based offering is expected to be a “freemium” product, with firms gaining access by subscription to enhanced reporting capabilities.  EarthUP is currently allowing organizations to sign up via our website (https://www.earthup.eco/landing-page/home_organizations) to join the waiting list.  Organizations that sign up before the launch date will get first access to the platform and will receive an enhanced dashboard at no additional cost.

With this investment, ClimeCo joins several other key investors, including Techquity (Techquity.ai), a founding investor that brings technology strategy expertise to the venture.  Techquity’s expertise was a significant factor in ClimeCo’s decision to make this investment in EarthUP.
