PeriCarbon is a non-profit organization founded in 2021 in Calgary, Canada with the intention of creating tangible solutions to the climate crisis of the 21st century. The initiative set forth is to create an effective and transparent registry that offered small-to-medium sized businesses an opportunity to reduce their carbon emissions through the adoption of environmentally friendly technologies.
Our organization is leading the frontier on achieving sustainability focused solutions for businesses, organizations, communities, and all levels of government around the world in need of climate solutions.

Promotion of Innovation and Technology
Central to our values is a deep-seated belief in the power of innovation and the transformative potential of technology. We actively encourage and facilitate the adoption of groundbreaking technologies that can contribute to human prosperity. Our focus is not just on innovation for its own sake, but on harnessing it to find solutions to real-world problems, environmental challenges, and to foster economic growth in a sustainable manner. We believe that through technology and creative thinking, we can redefine boundaries and accelerate progress toward sustainability.
Humanity and Compassion
At PeriCarbon, we understand that our organization is ultimately about people. We strive to create an environment where compassion is paramount, and the welfare of humanity is a top priority. Our commitment extends beyond our immediate communities to all of humanity. We view the world as an interconnected community, and believe in fostering relationships based on understanding, respect, and mutual aid.
Responsibility and ESG Commitment
Recognizing the urgency of the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues facing our world today, we commit to showing responsibility in these areas. As part of our ESG commitment, we rigorously assess and address the environmental impact of our operations, social inequalities within and outside our organization, and uphold transparent and ethical governance practices. We believe in proactive, rather than reactive, approaches to these challenges.
The GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standards provide requirements and guidelines for corporations to classify their GHG emissions, which are divided into three categories (Scopes) for accounting and reporting purposes. Most companies tend to focus on their own Scope 1 or 2 emissions and neglect the potential for reducing Scope 3 CO2 emissions through the promotion and incentivization of their supply chain network. In certain cases, Scope 3 emissions can account for as much as 80% of a company's total carbon emissions.
This led our team to establish a carbon footprint identification initiative that would help procurement professionals and consumers choose lower carbon supply chain alternatives.
The PeriCarbon team has a wide range of expertise that has brought innovation to Canadian markets and beyond. Our experience in global business development, multiple fields in high-level management, environmentally friendly technologies, marketing, and Blockchain technology will solidify PeriCarbon as a reliable provider of sustainability solutions.
