Our sustainable development and carbon reduction projects cover a range of different industries and global markets.
We’ve delivered a vast range of sustainable development and carbon reduction projects across hugely different industries and global markets.
The clean technologies we use include industrial energy efficiency, waste gas and heat to power, small-scale wind and hydro as well as biomass and biofuels.
In an advisory capacity, our work has covered forestry and land use change, sustainable development, strategic policy, energy and resource management, emissions assessment and carbon management.

In order to avoid an increase in global average temperatures of two degrees centigrade, carbon dioxide emissions from a significant proportion of fossil fuel reserves cannot be allowed into our atmosphere. Of all the fossil fuels, coal is the dirtiest. Yet it is the most abundant, and also the cheapest to extract, transport and burn.
Energy Performance Contracts (or EnPCs for short) are an excellent way for both Public Sector and Private Sector businesses to remove the requirement to have in-house staff managing energy consumption and driving energy performance, cost reduction and environmental improvements.
