effective action to measure and manage emissions of greenhouse
gases as a path to sustainability, profitability, and ethical
established in 2002 by Rick Heede, who is the principal (and
often the sole) investigator on CMS' projects.
CMS draws on a global network of colleagues and experts
as needed. Rick has studied climate change since the early-1970s
and has worked on energy and climate solutions since 1984.
He worked with Rocky Mountain Institute from 1984 through
2002 on issues ranging from energy policy (federal subsidies
to the energy sector, 1985, energy policy objectives for
the new administration, 1991), energy-saving office equipment,
1990, home energy measures, 1995, and “Climate Neutral
by 2020” for Oberlin College, 2002.
CMS works for municipalities, corporations, universities,
advocacy groups, international NGOs, architects, homeowners,
and individuals intent on implementing effective climate
CMS engages in and produces projects of high quality and integrity
for clients with a serious commitment to reduce their emissions
