Partner & Affiliate Profiles
Valmar & Associates, LLC is privileged to work closely with a superior network of subject matter experts, research institutes, policy and advocacy foundations as well as education and training organizations. The challenge of global climate change is significant – so too are our partnering relationships. Highlighted below are some of the organizations that add synergistic value to Valmar’s offerings:
Valmar is one of the founders responsible for the creation and ongoing support of BAILE. The Brazilian American Institute for Law and Environment (BAILE) is a non-profit research, teaching and policy center dedicated to fostering the relationship between the United States and Brazil in their shared goal of environmental protection and sustainable development.
The Institute is jointly housed and supported by Pace University’s Law School in New York and the Getulio Vargas Foundation School of Law in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The Climate Registry
Valmar is one of the original founding members of the The Climate Registry. The organization is a nonprofit collaboration among North American states, provinces, territories and Native Sovereign Nations that sets consistent and transparent standards to calculate, verify and publicly report greenhouse gas emissions into a single global registry. In addition to maintaining the registry, the organization assists its users with instruction, automated tools and industry specific protocols.
The Climate Registry is generally known as the leading registry in North America.
The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute
The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute is a nonprofit organization delivering training and education over the internet to individuals and organizations around the world. Their objectives include the training and support of a global community of qualified professionals working on GHG measurement, accounting, auditing and management.
Valmar supports the goals of the GHG Management Institute and participates in their certified training programs.
The World Resources Institute (WRI) is an environmental think tank that goes well beyond climate change research. They collaborate with other organizations to find practical ways to protect the earth and improve people’s lives. One notable example is their work in developing countries with the GHG Protocol Initiative, a tool to assist with GHG accounting and reduction. By forming partnerships in these rapidly industrializing economies, the GHG Protocol Initiative is building the capacity to participate in a meaningful way in tackling the global climate challenge while meeting local sustainable development needs.
Valmar supports the work of the World Resources Institute and is pleased to offer their “Bottom Line” series providing “snapshot” commentary on the major energy and climate policy debates.
