This paper describes the final results of a project aiming at addressing climate change by creating a GHG reduction platform for businesses with carbon management needs in global markets. The project was carried out during a New Product Development course in a bi-national program between The University of California at Berkeley (UCB) and the National University of Mexico (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, UNAM) in Mexico City. The program features collaboration between the Engineering and Design Schools at UNAM and Engineering and Business Schools at UCB and the College of Architecture CCA. The project, The Carbon Collaborative (TCC) is aimed at consolidating and managing the wide variety of policies and instruments created by governments and environmental organizations to mitigate climate change, and the anthropogenic gas emissions emitted by industry in particular in the US and Mexico. Based on a web platform TCC will provide companies with information on carbon legislation and a centralized location to find transparent and certified methodologies for carbon emission assessment. The differences between the US and Mexican markets lead to advantages for each part. The US market is full of developed consulting enterprises, which is not the case in the Mexican arena, giving to TCC the opportunity of being pioneers to regulate and manage large and small emitters, government environmental agencies and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) companies.
