Carbon Tools

ICF has developed a suite of climate tools to help manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, develop emissions inventories, estimate the price of carbon, and assess Clean Development Mechanism projects.

ICF has developed a suite of climate tools to help manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, develop emissions inventories, estimate the price of carbon, and assess Clean Development Mechanism projects.

Since 1987, ICF has been at the forefront of preparing leading-edge climate-related technical and strategic analyses, and building real-world management tools. The need to understand and manage GHG emissions information has emerged in response to international climate negotiations, national climate policies, and new emissions trading schemes.

ICF's portfolio of off-the-shelf tools and models covers all aspects of the climate project lifecycle from emissions modeling to project investment, and from carbon pricing to risk management. These well-respected tools and models have been adapted for both public- and private-sector clients around the world, highlighting the broad applicability of each tool.

Our in-depth perspective on climate science and economics and our familiarity with tool development mean that if a new tool or model needs to be developed, ICF can provide cost-effective and timely development.

ICF's fluency in climate science, climate policies, economic and market analysis, and emissions reduction strategies enables us to provide integrated and holistic climate services to clients around the world.

Tools & Models

  • CPM™ - Carbon Planning Model

    ICF has developed the Carbon Planning Model (CPM™), a market scenario analysis tool for modeling carbon market prices based on fluctuations in supply, with feedback loops that fluctuate demand as a function of carbon prices and marginal abatement costs.

  • GEMS® - Greenhouse Gas Emissions Management System

    ICF's Greenhouse Gas Emissions Management System (GEMS®) is a concept and framework for managing economic emissions reductions, enabling the user to directly evaluate alternative lower emission technologies and track changes to manage risk and evaluate potential GHG reduction investments.

  • GHGPortfolio™

    ICF's GHGPortfolio evaluates current and prospective GHG emission reduction projects on the basis of specific and highly stringent policy and project risk factors.

  • InCaP™ - International Carbon Pricing Tool

    ICF's International Carbon Pricing Tool (InCaP) forecasts the average annual market price of GHG emission instruments (allowances and emission reduction credits) for user-defined supply and demand scenarios through 2027 to help clients develop strategies for carbon trading.

  • RESPIRE® - Rating and Evaluation System for Prioritising Investments in Reducing Emissions

    ICF's proprietary Rating and Evaluation System for Prioritising Investments in Reducing Emissions (RESPIRE®) assists managers in prioritizing their energy and carbon saving options, analyzing the variables that determine the value and feasibility of an energy or carbon-saving project in the real-world commercial environment.

  • Climate CHECK - Climate CHange Emission Calculator Kit

    ICF developed the Climate CHange Emission Calculator Kit (Climate CHECK) for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Atmospheric Programs to guide high school students though the process of developing a GHG emissions inventory for their school.

  • CLIP - Climate Leadership in Parks

    The Climate Leadership in Parks (CLIP) tool was developed for the National Park Service to enable national parks to easily complete an emissions inventory.

  • Vintaging Model

    Since its creation in 1985, ICF has developed and supported the U.S. EPA’s Vintaging Model. This model tracks and analyzes the stock of equipment containing ozone-depleting substances (ODS) and ODS substitutes over time.

  • AHEF - Atmospheric Health Effect Framework Model

    ICF developed and maintains the Atmospheric Health Effect Framework (AHEF) Model for the U.S. EPA. The AHEF Model is an internationally recognized tool to estimate ultraviolet (UV) induced health effects that may result from stratospheric ozone depletion.

  • MAC - Marginal Abatement Cost

    ICF develops marginal abatement cost (MAC) curves for GHG for specific countries and regions. For each mitigation option, ICF evaluates the capital and operation costs of the technology or the benefits in terms of cost savings and emission reductions.
