Internat Energy Solutions Canada (IESC) provides knowledge and expertise to assist clients in monitoring and reducing their GHG Emissions. Legally binding regional, national and international policies designed to reduce GHG emissions have emerged all over the world, led by the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol. Carbon reduction plans have emerged as techniques to help organizations to reduce and monitor GHG emissions while producing effective and strategic strategies to reduce their emissions, all at low cost. IESC provides carbon accounting and reduction strategies tailored to an organizations needs and requirements whether is publicly run, privately operating or wishes to examine its products or services and their associated carbon footprints. At all organizations levels and scopes, whether organizational, regional, municipal or product/service level, IESC offers carbon accounting, quantification and verification methodologies that can be tailored to a client's needs and desires.

Bilan Carbone®



Bilan Carbone®, an emissions accounting model, developed in 2006 by the French Agency for the Environment and Energy Management (ADEME). It was developed as a method for estimating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions originating from any business entity, government office, factory or corporate entity. The main purpose of Bilan Carbone® is to stimulate a plan to lower GHG emissions, a strategic decision which must be completed with care and appropriate deliberation to achieve success. By quantifying emissions and illuminating areas where reductions can be made, Bilan Carbone® determines which processes are candidates for revision within the operational stream. By providing a visual view of emissions, Bilan Carbone® is a flexible model that can be used for building audits, organization change as well as a design comparison tool. Its outputs are consistent with the required reporting structures for the International Standards Organization ISO 14064 and the GHG Protocol and can monitor emissions in categories such as: Energy Use, Industrial and Agricultural Processes, Transportation Systems and Services, Materials and Tertiary Services, Packaging and Amortization of Capital Assets. Bilan Carbone® offers a holistic approach to carbon accounting and carbon reduction strategies, producing a full service carbon footprint of an organization's activities, services and product offerings as required.

GHG Protocol

GHG Protocol is used all over the world to quantify, verify and monitor GHG emissions from their operations whether based in government or business operations. Developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Coucil for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), GHG Protocol standards provide guidance on carbon accounting of public service, corporate, project and product and supply chains within organizations. Such guidance and protocols can help organizations develop sound and cost effective emissions reductions strategies. GHG Protocol also meets the ISO 14064 standard for GHG verification activities.

PAS 2050

Developed by the British Standards Institute in conjunction with DEFRA, Carbon Trust and industry stakeholders, PAS 2050 is an accounting method and standard for the monitoring, verification and accounting of the life cycle GHG emissions of goods and services. It is comprised of a measurement tool and protocol along with reduction targets and strategies with Product- Related Emissions Reduction Framework (PERF) at the core of its methodology. Possible product types that can be assessed for their carbon footprints include: goods and services, manufactures, retailers and traders, business to business (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) operations and international, local or regional supply chains. Utilizing PAS 2050 and the life cycle GHG emissions of products and services, organizations can gain insights and knowledge into their product life cycle GHG emissions, supply chain, operations or purchasing options or alternative production/service offerings, benchmarks and comparative analyses and corporate sustainability practice compliance and branding needs.

Life Cycle Analysis of Products and Services

“Green Design” means developing products and services that are environmentally benign. It involves examining the environmental effects of their design and manufacturing process in order to incorporate them efficiently and effectively. Principles of “Green Design” include: reducing or minimizing the use of non-renewable resources; using renewable resources sustainably; and the reduction or elimination of harmful greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) which contribute to global warming. Environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method which can be used to map resource, environmental, and energy needs associated with products and their processes throughout manufacturing, use, and disposal. Supplier activities, services, materials, and processes are included to enable a thorough assessment of the life cycle. International Standards Organization (ISO) 14040 standardizes the principle and framework required to complete an LCA including: defining the goals and scope; life cycle inventory (LCI); life cycle interpretation and reporting; and critical review processes. Internat Energy Solutions Canada will work with your organization to develop LCA solutions for your products, processes, and organizational requirements from a GHG mitigation perspective. Using customized internally developed software or industry recognized platforms such as SimaPro or GHGenius couple with access to a multitude of methodologies; Internat Energy Solutions Canada can provide services for all your organization’s LCA requirements.
