Recent News

In 2020, Cameron-Cole quantified and publicly reported our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory to The Climate Registry for the 10th straight year. The boundaries of our inventory include Scope 1 emissions (from metered natural gas; company-owned vehicles and equipment; hydrofluorocarbons from refrigerant usage) and Scope 2 emissions (from purchased electricity). Our footprint is consistent with that of a typical environmental services provider. The majority of our emissions are a result of purchased electricity, followed by fleet vehicle emissions. Our goal in future inventories is to actively work to decrease our total footprint.
