At Guzman & Company, we have a strong understanding of environmental science. We analyzed the SEC’s climate change guidelines and requirements and regularly provide important analytics, insights and guidance to our clients.

We have also partnered with our sister company, Guzman Energy, to identify decarbonization opportunities that reduce greenhouse gases and help build a  more cost-effective and resilient energy supply. Guzman Energy’s focus is an energy transition platform with an emphasis in rural America and communities that have not been as engaged in the energy transition. Inc. Magazine recently recognized Guzman Energy as one of 17 organizations that embody the 17 UN Sustainability Goals.

Guzman Energy pioneered the concept of “coal swaps” that is extricating customers (cooperatives, municipalities & tribes) from decades-old power agreements that require them to purchase their electricity from expensive coal-burning sources that emit significant greenhouse gases. The company’s innovative solution of bringing coal swaps to rural America is having a positive impact on the environment by decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, and a positive economic impact on rural communities who have been left behind in matters of energy and economic transition.
