SEDAC provides climate action planning services for large and small organizations. We help agencies and organizations identify their goals, where they are now, and how they will achieve their goals. We do a thorough inventory of greenhouse gas emissions, exploring emissions from buildings, transportation, land use, water, waste, and more. We project emissions into the future and then develop strategies to help reduce these emissions to reach targets.

Contact us at 800.214.7954 or sedac-netzero@illinois.edu to discuss ways SEDAC can help your climate action planning process.
