Do Carbone 4's missions have an impact ?

At Carbone 4, our deepest ambition is to solve this man-made climate crisis. To do so, we help our clients to take the measure of the challenge posed by climate change, and then become actors who contribute to the emergence of a low-carbon world.

In order to bring our clients to make a strong and sincere commitment to this low-carbon transformation of our societies, we rely on strong values of rigor and humility, with sometimes a touch of impertinence. We are extremely vigilant about attempts at greenwashing and refuse any type of mission or exploitation of our work that could come close to it.

Carbone 4's staff members are constantly seeking to provide our clients with the most relevant decision-making elements to catalyze the steps towards their low-carbon transformation.

We also try to increase our impact through a sustained publication activity.

We seek to have the greatest possible impact on the low-carbon transformation of our societies through the decisions we help our clients make, and through our contribution to the public debate via our publications. However, we remain a consulting company, with an inherent limit to this profession that must be kept in mind: we do not make the final decision!
