Founded in 2016, Firefly GHG Consulting (‘Firefly’) is a specialist greenhouse gas and carbon management consultancy. We envision a future where our children can be proud of the actions that we took to be a part of the climate change solution - our mission is to help you be an equally proud part of that solution.
Firefly is an experienced and independent GHG management consultant. We believe that the issue of climate change can only be solved by collective action. As such, our philosophy is to not just to provide a service, but to support, educate and empower you to become capable of managing your own GHG affairs in the near term. We believe this offers the best value for both you and the environment - by working to spread our GHG management skills and knowledge, we can maximize our positive impact. This philosophy is central to how we structure our engagements.
Firefly provides professional support to organizations to reduce their climate impact through services such as GHG inventories/carbon footprinting, GHG reduction action plans and target setting, GHG reduction and offset project quantification, life-cycle assessments, Climate Lens assessments for ICIP grant applications, carbon market assessments and advice, validation and pre-verification screening for carbon offset projects and programs, Peer Review (PR) to support third-party validations and verifications and development of GHG offset Protocols/Methodologies. For more information, see our services page.
1. Respect is our foundation. We will conduct all of our activities with respect. This means respect for ourselves, through looking after health, wellbeing and family and refusing to compromise on our ethics; respect for our clients, by always providing professional, honest and competent work and advice; and respect for our environment, by always working with its best interests at heart.
2. We will add value. We will engage only in projects where we believe that our contribution will make a difference. We will choose to work with clients who genuinely want to effect change.
3. We will walk the talk. We will be the change we want to see. We will understand our own carbon footprint and take actions to minimize it.
