We believe that climate change needs to be tightly controlled and that low-carbon sustainability and secure economic development go hand in hand.
Thanks to our latest insights in policy development, we assist our corporate clients in identifying new opportunities and specifying their optimal response strategies. Our hands-on work in day-to-day operations on carbon markets provides us with a solid understanding on the practicalities of proposed policy changes.
Our expertise areas include emissions trading systems, carbon market analysis, JI and CDM project advisory, carbon finance, and sustainability reporting.
Our experts have developed climate change policies for public bodies and assisted NGOs in identifying technological opportunities for deeper greenhouse gas reductions. We furthermore supported various international corporate clients in the formulation and implementation of their carbon response strategies.
Our services include:
- Designing and evaluating climate policy and strategy to maximize efficiency and effectiveness.
- Carbon strategy design and optimization of activities across the carbon value chain
- Implementation of response strategies and capacity building within the organization
- Project and process management
- Market assessments for optimal market positioning.
We seek to balance our work between public and private clients. In this way we are close to the development of new policies as well as to the practical implementation of response strategies. Our recent assignments include:
European Commission - evaluation of the NIMS, the allocation of allowances to industry in the 3rd phase EU-ETS.
