CMS supports effective action to measure and manage emissions of greenhouse gases as a path to sustainability, profitability, and ethical action.
CMS was 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 stewardship.
CMS engages in and produces projects of high quality and integrity for clients with a serious commitment to reduce their emissions footprint.
