We Are ACT
The leading global provider of market-based sustainability solutions.
Since the beginning of the global transition towards a low-emissions economy, we’ve helped organizations all over the world hit their sustainability targets and achieve their climate action goals with our end-to-end and comprehensive offering of tailor-made solutions. Through our commitment to integrity and dedication to enabling climate action, we’ve earned our status as a CDP Gold Accredited Provider of environmental solutions.
We shape environmental markets
As board members, members, and partners, we work to continuously improve industry standards and best practices by sharing our expertise with leading global organizations such as the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, CDP, CIPC, CPLC, IETA, ICROA, IETA, TSVCM, ADBA, RECS Energy Certificate Association and the World Biogas Association.
In addition to the climate action our work empowers, we also take steps to address our own emissions. For example, our office buildings meet the highest standards of energy efficiency and are powered by 100% renewable energy, and the renewable biofuels we provide to our clients are made from sustainable waste streams that have a positive impact on the environment.
Even though our work supports meaningful sustainable development all over the world, we have long believed in making direct impact where it counts the most. We focus our work through an on-going partnership with the Plan International organization. Over the years, we have helped hundreds of youths from marginalized communities in Ecuador receive the education and tools they need to create a happy, healthy, prosperous, and environmentally sustainable life for themselves and their families.
