The KLA Team is built on decades of experience working with communities, companies, nonprofits and individuals to advance sustainability. Our expertise ranges from community engagement and storytelling to technical work (GHG inventories and GIS mapping) to developing sustainability, resilience and climate action plans. We work together everyday to serve our local government clients, partnering with them to build the sustainable communities they envision. We do this by delivering affordable tools and services to assess, plan, implement, evaluate, and communicate sustainability goals and programs.

Of course, the best way to get to know us is to work with us. So set up a time for a free, casual chat with us about your community’s needs and how our team can help.
