NSF International, Trucost Form Partnership
NSF International and Trucost Plc. have entered into a strategic partnership that will provide new environmental measurement, management, and reporting products and services through the combination of Trucost's patented methodology and NSF's environmental certification, verification, and auditing services.
NSF, a public health organization based in Ann Arbor, Mich., made a financial commitment to the global partnership by participating in Trucost's latest round of financing.
"This is an exciting time for us. NSF's partnership and investment validates Trucost's rigorous and evidence-based approach. We are able to help companies address the business costs of their environmental impacts in a timely, cost-effective, and comparable manner. The partnership with NSF will leverage the Trucost model as the key to how some of the world's leading companies address their environmental performance," said Simon Thomas, chief executive officer of London-based Trucost.
"The agreement expands the global reach of both our companies," said Kevan P. Lawlor, president and chief executive officer of NSF. "It will enable NSF to offer carbon traceability, environmental footprinting, supply chain analysis, and global benchmarking to NSF's customer base in over 100 countries."
