    Our combination of technology and expert guidance helps organizations reduce uncertainty and solve the toughest operational, commercial and environmental challenges. Our platform makes data easily accessible so teams can act with speed, and it provides companies with the clarity they need to navigate physical and carbon markets.

    In tandem with our technology, Validere’s experts across data science, physical science, engineering, and energy serve as trusted advisors who deeply understand the evolving landscape and challenges businesses face.

    Over 50 of North America’s leading energy companies rely on Validere for:

    • Carbon reduction: We help streamline regulatory reporting and sharpen decarbonization strategies, providing visibility into Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.

    • Marketing: Our expert consultants offer clarity into the whole market so businesses can sell efficiently and manage commitments.

    • Investor relations: We provide ongoing validation into commodity data so companies can meet evolving regulatory standards and shareholder demands.

    • Finance: Businesses use us to view their operations at a granular level, so they can make informed capital deployment decisions and proactively reduce operational costs.

    • Operations: We help identify and reduce the impact of operational uncertainties, including facility imbalances, lost and unaccounted for (L&U), and other challenges.
