WEST CHESTER, Pa., Jan. 10, 2011 – FirstCarbon Solutions, a pioneer and industry leader in environmental management optimization, offers a suite of environmental intelligence and analytics solutions designed to help organizations meet sustainability objectives.
For regulated industries struggling with how to assure compliance with new environmental reporting requirements, FirstCarbon Solutions provides an end-to-end environmental management solution that helps companies quickly identify and collect the necessary data and accurately calculate a carbon footprint without draining an organization's internal resources. For organizations not yet subject to carbon and other regulations, but where sustainability metrics have a material impact on business operations, FirstCarbon Solutions quantifies the cost of carbon and other resources, and transforms that cost into business opportunity. In November 2010, FirstCarbon Solutions established FirstCarbon Energy Solutions, a subsidiary dedicated to providing a suite of services to help organizations improve energy savings programs.
