Clearloop is now accredited by the Carbon Disclosure Project

Clearloop’s accreditation is proof positive of our success in accomplishing true, meaningful emissions mitigation

NASHVILLE, Tenn (August 30, 2022)—At Clearloop, we’re always strengthening our offerings to help companies make good on their climate pledges, and bring sustainable solar power to those who need it most. That’s why we’re proud to share that Clearloop is now accredited by the Carbon Disclosure Project as a carbon reductions solution for Scope 3 emissions

The CDP is the global gold standard of environmental impact and emissions reporting, and receives emissions disclosures from 9,600 companies worldwide. 

“Clearloop’s expertise helping companies tackle their own carbon footprints will be of great value to the thousands of companies using CDP to disclose their environmental data,” says Paul Robins, Head of Global Partnerships at CDP. “Decarbonizing the grid in the U.S. is more important than ever, and Clearloop is providing wider access to clean energy to help these companies do their part and tackle their Scope 3 emissions.”

Scope 3 emissions are those companies don’t produce directly, but are indirectly responsible for as the result of their activities—for example, those produced by trucks a retailer contracts to ship their product out to customers. On average, Scope 3 emissions make up 75% of a company’s footprint. As both the importance of decarbonizing the energy grid and the immense opportunity for solar to reduce net emissions by 2030 become increasingly clear, reducing these emissions is a vital piece of the puzzle.

Clearloop is connecting the dots between corporate promises and real impact. By providing one of the few American-based solutions available to companies aiming to reduce their carbon footprint, we’re meeting and bolstering the rising tide of corporate environmental responsibility efforts with the tools to help them hit net-zero. Companies that invest with us to fund solar projects in regions of America where the energy grid is the most carbon dependent take tangible steps for environmental impact, support equitable solar energy, and catalyze investment in underserved communities. 

“As a recognized CDP-Accredited Solution Provider, Clearloop is excited to further advance our commitment to helping companies of all sizes reclaim their carbon footprint and to widen our scope to support CDP-disclosing companies,” says Clearloop CEO and Co-founder Laura Zapata. “Clearloop is the bridge between communities lacking access to renewable energy and ESG investors looking to finance additional carbon removal efforts, and is shifting the way corporate investments clean up the grid. We look forward to continuing to help companies and organizations do their part to decarbonize the grid and ensure nobody in the energy transition is left behind.”

About Clearloop

Clearloop, a Silicon Ranch company, partners with companies of all sizes to meet ambitious ESG goals by reclaiming their carbon footprint, expanding access to clean energy, and decarbonizing the grid through the construction of new solar projects in American communities otherwise getting left behind. The two Panola County solar ranches demonstrate Clearloop’s rapid growth, taking the renewables pioneer from 1MW in solar investments to more than 10MW in just under a year. The company broke ground on its first carbon-offset funded solar ranch, a 1MW project in Jackson, TN, last fall; and recently announced a 1MW project in Paris, TN, funded by EV maker Rivian in exchange for renewable energy credits. Clearloop plans to announce a new project in the Appalachian region before the end of the year. To learn more, visit clearloop.us and follow on Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn
