We help our clients develop their capacity to manage and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Climate change is the most global and prominent sustainability issue facing wider society. Businesses and governments are under increasing pressure to demonstrate action and leadership. It is crucial for organisations to understand the regulatory, economic, scientific and technological context of this global challenge. Our experts have skills across all of these areas to enable them to develop appropriate and lasting solutions for our clients.
We provide services in the following areas:
- Climate change mitigation, developing strategies, targets and programs to quantify and manage impacts and identify opportunities to reduce emissions and lower future energy costs and carbon market exposure. We call on a range of tools such as carbon footprinting and life cycle assessments to develop complex carbon inventories, supply chain assessments to identify risk exposure, and marginal abatement cost curves to help define management responses.
- Climate change adaptation, helping clients to identify and manage their exposure to changing climates. We use best practice frameworks and process to undertake risk and vulnerability assessment, quantify risk where appropriate, considering uncertainty for better decision making. We work with our client to build their capacity to respond to climate change by embedding climate change understanding throughout their organisation. We collaboratively build evolutive climate change adaptation plans with clear but flexible pathways.
- Compliance assistance, helping clients to meet their data management and reporting obligations under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme, assess and manage carbon abatement projects under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF), and manage liabilities under the Safeguard Mechanism.
- Audit and assurance, with our registered auditors providing a full range of assurance and verification services of carbon inventories and compliance under the NGER, ERF, National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) and various other mandatory and voluntary schemes.
