Radicle joins The Carbon Call to advance carbon accounting standards across industries
by CM Staff
The goal is to standardize carbon accounting standards and inputs, so it is possible for companies to freely export data from one software and import it into another.
CALGARY — This week, Radicle Group Inc. (Radicle), involved in the carbon emissions reductions industry, joined The Carbon Call, a new global initiative. Working in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the group’s focus is to strengthen the accuracy, consistency, and transparency of carbon accounting reporting, with a specialization in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and removal in the corporate sector.
This new global initiative has brought together 40 organizations representing scientific, corporate, philanthropic, and intergovernmental sectors to address gaps in the global carbon accounting system. The goal is to standardize carbon accounting standards and inputs, so it is possible for companies to freely export data from one software and import it into another while ensuring the accuracy of carbon measurement data.
Radicle will be tasked with lending insight to the development, and implementation, of a roadmap that aligns insight, action, and resources to reinforce standard corporate emissions measurement and accounting. This roadmap will act as a review piece when disseminated ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) later this year.
“Radicle is proud to join The Carbon Call and share our expertise as participating organizations work to strengthen the global carbon accounting system,” said Brent Thumlert, Radicle’s Managing Director, Software & Technology. “This is not an exercise in redefining current GHG protocol standards. We, as a group, want to strengthen and clarify current carbon accounting elements that are essential to protecting our planet and creating a low carbon environment.”
Radicle uses proprietary software in emissions reduction strategies.
