We have a 23-year track record in energy and carbon with a focus on low carbon growth, energy efficiency and clean energy development.

In 2011, our team was positioned alongside McKinsey as market leaders in the Verdantix report on UK sustainability consulting services.
Climate science indicates that we need to stop average temperatures from rising by more than two degrees. We can do this by limiting greenhouse gas concentrations to a peak of 350-400ppm (parts per million). We need to use all natural resources more efficiently, particularly water.
The world is responding in two ways. Politicians are negotiating a global agreement and regulating emissions through market mechanisms and command and control policies. The private sector is reacting too. There is real value to be found in short term efficiency savings, and this work is always supportive of a broader corporate responsibility agenda.
Your organisation's investment in climate change and sustainability is likely to be driven by customers demanding 'greener' products, energy costs hitting untenable highs or your need for more efficient production processes and supply chains. We understand these issues, and how your business can respond to the challenge.
