This module enables gathering and management of data connected to your company and value chain’s climate change impact, according to the international Greenhouse Gas Protocol. When your company has calculated its carbon footprint, we can also assist in carbon offsetting.
This module enables gathering and management of any qualitative and quantitative ESG data and is fully compatible with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
This module enables your company to measure, manage and map ESG risks in its supply chain.
This module allows you to capture, analyze and report all the HSE (health, safety, environment) metrics that are important to your organization.
Our team of expert consultants have extensive experience analyzing ESG data to develop comprehensive and meaningful sustainability strategies and ESG reporting. Our people are passionate and driven to help your company reduce its carbon footprint and improve its overall sustainability performance.

We help map, identify, analyze, and report on your company’s climate-related risks in accordance with the recommendations by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
Our team has substantial experience with assisting our clients in all forms of ESG reporting: carbon footprint in annual reports, reporting climate and environmental performance to the CDP, and reporting ESG performance according to the GRI.
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
In addition to helping our clients on their sustainability journey, we are always seeking to improve our own sustainability performance. Every year we calculate our carbon footprint and offset our emissions through UN-certified emission reduction projects. We are also involved in several projects and partnerships to strengthen our sustainability work and provide our clients with the most up-to-date and trustworthy resources.
Cemasys Climate Park
In 2019, Cemasys funded the planting of 150.000 mangrove trees in the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park in Myanmar. We see this as a unique opportunity to contribute to mitigating climate change and improving the socio-economic conditions of the local community. Planting new forests bind CO2 from the atmosphere; one new mangrove tree can bind approx. 1 tCO2 over a twenty-year period. Mangrove forests are also breeding grounds for fish populations and foster biodiversity and crucial habitats for otherwise threatened and endangered animal and plant species.
Climate Neutral Now
Cemasys was one of the world’s 100 first climate neutral companies. We have signed the Climate Neutral Now pledge (UNFCCC) and adhere to the methodology for all our clients that calculate, reduce, offset, and communicate their emissions. Climate Neutral Now is an initiative that encourages the offsetting of emissions by supporting green projects that reduce, avoid, or remove greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2020, we joined the UN Global Compact as a Participant member. The initiative allows partnerships and collaborations in the work needed to reach the UN Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). Through our membership, Cemasys participates in regional and international engagements and resource development.
