Greenpoint Innovations has directly, and through client and partner relationships, been involved with a variety of publications, articles and blogs to provide guidance, research, data collection, analysis and writing.
Below is a selection of our work.
Zooming In: Companies, Commodities, & Traceability Commitments that Count, 2018 (Forest Trends' Supply Change and Ceres Publication)
"Zooming In" presents new analysis by Forest Trends' Supply Change Initiative and Ceres about how companies that are committed to addressing commodity-driven deforestation are tracing supplies to their origin—be it factory, farm, field, or forest—so they can determine the impact their supply chains have on forests. This analysis is available for download as an Executive Summary and a Supplemental Slide Deck.
Disclosure Divide: Revisiting Rising Risk and Methane Reporting in the U.S. Oil and Gas Industry (Environmental Defense Fund Publication)
A report from Environmental Defense Fund shows that reporting on methane has improved slightly, though unevenly, within the U.S. oil and gas industry. The Disclsoure Divide examines improvements in methane reporting over the two years since Rising Risk was published. EDF hired Greenpoint Innovations to research and analyze the current state of corporate disclosure on the issue of methane emissions in the oil and gas industry.
Forest Trends' Supply Change Initiative
Stephen Donofrio, Principal & Founder of Greenpoint Innovations, has authored reports and blogs, and has led webinars for Forest Trends' Supply Change Initiative as Senior Advisor. Supply Change (www.supply-change.org) enables users to track progress toward private sector commitments to remove deforestation from commodity supply chains.
Rising Risk: Improving Methane Disclosure in the Oil and Gas Industry (Environmental Defense Fund Publication)
A first-of-its-kind report by Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) shows that leading oil and gas companies are putting themselves and their investors at financial and reputational risk by failing to adequately disclose meaningful information on emissions of methane. EDF hired Greenpoint Innovations to research and analyze the current state of corporate disclosure on the issue of methane emissions in the oil and gas industry.
Growing economies while avoiding deforestation (Corporate-Citizenship briefing)
In a guest blog for Corporate Citizenship, we examined the important role that avoiding deforestation and degradation plays in mitigating climate change, and describes the benefits to businesses from tackling forest risk.
Rising Above the Seas: SECing Materiality Through the Corporate Lens (ACCO White paper)
A white paper published by the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO), written by Stephen Donofrio and Greenpoint Innovations. Business continuity is a familiar concept to corporations that has traditionally encompassed planning and preparation for disruptive incidents and disasters (e.g. fires, earthquakes, floods, etc.) to ensure businesses are protected and/or will recover to an operational state within a reasonable period of time.
