Sustainability Assessments

Your business can do good while doing well. At Equinox we help our clients understand how their activities affect the “3 Ps”: people, planet, and profit. We take the expertise we’ve used to assess entire regions and our own business, and apply it to your corporation or municipality—finding opportunities for cost savings, reduced environmental impact, and increased employee and stakeholder satisfaction. If needed, we can also tap our huge local and national partner network to customize a team just for your project.

Climate Change Action Plans & Implementation

Smart organizations are preparing for climate change now. Weather patterns are changing, plant hardiness zones are shifting, and personal health is being threatened. We help our clients understand how climate change will affect natural systems, and develop and implement long-term solutions to minimize those risks. Whether it’s designing a stormwater system to accommodate heavy downpours, creating a drought-tolerant planting plan, or restoring wooded stream banks that filter pollutants, our fact-based guidance can help your business or municipality make sound decisions and plan for a changing future.

Carbon Management & Offsets

Be a pioneer in the North Carolina carbon offset movement. This new opportunity for corporations and forest-owning individuals is a win-win for both parties; corporations mitigate their carbon footprints by supporting the maintenance of healthy forests. Our role is to aid corporations in identifying eligible properties, as well as help our forest-owning clients to participate in this market for financial gain, linking the two to create a mutually beneficial arrangement. Equinox is an early supporter in this region because we anticipate that carbon offsets will soon be mandatory. For corporations, now is the time to participate because voluntary mitigation will be more cost effective than fees for regulatory compliance.
