GHG inventory/carbon footprint


Understanding the sources - and sinks - of your greenhouse gas emissions, and the significance of those, is critical to managing your impact.  At a facility, organizational or product level, a comprehensive GHG inventory - often also called a 'carbon footprint' - is often a first step in GHG management, but may also be a frequent effort, as part of internal or external monitoring and reporting processes.

Firefly has experience working with municipal, community, institutional and industrial clients reporting under:

GHG reduction and offset projects


Properly quantifying the benefit of your efforts to reduce your GHG impacts requires knowledge, discipline and data. Firefly has experience quantifying and reporting a wide variety of GHG reduction projects to the ISO 14064-2 standard, mostly for the purpose of creating verifiable offset credits for Alberta Emissions Offset Registry, BC and voluntary standards such as the CSA Clean Projects Registry


This includes:

  • Wind power, biomass, anaerobic digestion (biogas),

  • Acid gas injection, enhanced oil recovery, high-low bleed pneumatic controller swapouts, engine fuel gas management, reduced pipeline blowdowns and waste-heat-to-power projects.

  • Energy efficiency, micro-CHP, fuel-switching,

  • Ozone-depleting-substances (ODS) destruction, and

  • Landfill avoidance.
