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 - updated and refreshed in 2020),
CarbonScope (a general-purpose LCA tool - redesigned and redeveloped from the ground up in 2020) 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.
What we referred to as climate change back in 2012 is now properly referred to as the climate crisis. We launched CleanMetrics 2.0 in January 2020 to bring new focus and fresh ideas to tackle the climate crisis.
