Climate change and resiliency services are a part of SEM’s environmental service offerings.
We have in-house expertise on greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting, emissions reporting & reduction, flood risk studies, and waste heat utilization.
Greenhouse gas accounting is an important part of any industrial company’s climate change mitigation & sustainability mix.
Our GHG inventory quantification abides by Western Climate Initiative’s protocols which are required by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. We keep up to date on the latest approved protocols and methods.
Operators of industrial facilities in Newfoundland and Labrador that emit 15,000 tonnes of GHG emissions or more in a given year are required to file an emissions report. We offer emissions reporting services compliant with GovNL standards.
We also offer National Pollution Release Inventory (NPRI) reporting services. The scope of NPRI reporting extends beyond GHG accounting as it tracks releases of over 320 pollutants to air, water, and land. Our NPRI reporting services are compliant with federal standards outlined in the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA).
Reduction opportunities exist in all facets of an industrial operation – whether it be Base Level Emissions or mobile sources.
SEM is proud to offer analysis services for emission reduction opportunities to help facilities work towards net zero.
SEM’s geomatics and environmental experts can help you understand and mitigate flood risks. Floods are increasingly frequent and increasingly costly in the face of climate change.
Our flood mapping and analytics give you a precise look at future risks, allowing you to anticipate, react to, and manage flooding.
Waste heat is untapped energy – of which the majority is not captured. Increasing efficiency of energy use via waste heat utilization is not just good for the environment, it’s good business sense.
We analyze and provides solutions based on your waste heat inefficiencies so you can maximize your energy usage.
