CleanMetrics 2.0 is a reboot of CleanMetrics with an exclusive focus on the climate crisis. Our mission is to enable data-driven climate actions by both consumers and businesses.

Our expertise is in the areas of modeling, simulation, life-cycle assessment, carbon footprinting and resource efficiency. We are putting all of our resources to use, including our existing LCA tools/databases and simulators. We are also developing key additional tools, data and guidance for GHG emission reductions.

We realize as we move forward that precise modeling and calculations are not enough by themselves to turn the tide on climate - as proven by the last 25 years of collective experience worldwide. It is easy to fall into the trap of taking a few "feel good" actions or allowing the emission reductions to turn into a public relations exercise.

Our goal is to play a useful role in linking data to actual decisions and actions. We plan to do this by reducing the barriers to accessing high-quality data, making it easier to understand the data, and then providing guidance on how consumers and businesses can act on that data to really move the needle on climate.

Please stay tuned as we get this effort off the ground, and feel free to share your ideas and suggestions with us.

Company history: The first iteration of CleanMetrics Corp was as a leading provider of LCA tools, data and services in the 2007-2012 time frame. During this period, we worked with more than three dozen customers in many different economic sectors to quantify and reduce their GHG emissions and other environmental impacts. We developed many LCA resources, including FoodCarbonScope (the leading LCA tool for food/agriculture), CarbonScopeData (a comprehensive LCI database, including the most extensive data sets available for North American food production and processing), CarbonScope (a general-purpose LCA tool) and BuildingScope (an LCA tool for evaluating building construction and operation). We also published extensively on climate and sustainability, including pioneering peer-reviewed research on the climate impacts of foods (animal vs. plant proteins, organic vs. conventional crops, and the climate impacts of food waste). Our work was covered by leading media outlets such as the National Public Radio and the Wall Street Journal.
