We have been tapping the expertise of environmental advisory services firm V4 Advisors since 2013 mainly to monitor, evaluate, and report the GHG emissions of our facilities and warehouses in the Middle Eastern states, the United States, China, and European nations.

V4 Advisors uses its certified Corporate Greenhouse Gas Calculator tool, with the ‘Built on GHG Protocol’ mark. The tool is the world’s highly trusted greenhouse gas accounting standards.
