ICF

ICF Consulting helps their clients solve complex problems. ICF Consulting aims to build a more prosperous and resilient world through investing in people, minimising our footprint on the planet, and supporting important causes.

ICF works with business, government and nonprofit organizations to design and implement programs and policies that drive low-emission transitions and build resilience against the effects of climate change. ICF is one of the world’s largest science-based climate consultancies with 2000+ climate, energy and environment experts worldwide working full-time to help organizations use their resources more efficiently, reduce costs, and accelerate mission accomplishment. ICF maintains objectivity as a non-partisan, non-political firm that spends zero funds on lobbying or supporting political parties or candidates.

ICF carefully manages its own footprint, implements efficiencies to reduce emissions, has an approved science-based target, purchases renewable energy certificates equivalent to 100% of the energy used by global operations, and buys verified carbon offsets equivalent to the remaining emissions (including those from business travel and employee commuting).
