Emissions Reduction Audits and Assessments

Emissions reduction audits and assessments help determine the amount of emissions that can be reduced at any given property through energy efficiency, electrification, reducing fugitive emissions, and adding onsite renewable energy. These audits/assessments help organizations better understand the feasible paths for cutting emissions, resulting in a more informed and robust emissions reduction plan. Better Buildings created a checklist for building owners and managers to help develop a GHG emissions audit scope of work.
