Higher Education Institution Reaches Net Zero Using AAchieve.ESG

  • Situation: The university was experiencing high emissions but was unsure which categories and suppliers they were coming from. They needed support identifying the sources of emissions so they could take action.
  • Approach: We integrated and configured AAchieve.ESG on their behalf to analyze a year of their spending data and determine where sources of high emissions came from.
  • Results: The data from AAchieve.ESG revealed that facilities, IT, and professional services were significant contributors to their carbon footprint. By understanding the sources of emissions, we developed a roadmap for them to reach net zero, identifying benchmarks and establishing ongoing reporting. This helped them move forward with a strategic approach to reducing their emissions and aligning with their suppliers on sustainability goals.

Private University Achieves Cost Savings and Reputational Gains Through Transportation Optimization
