Energy and carbon advisory services
96% of FTSE 350 companies have board-level responsibility for their carbon emissions (Carbon Disclosure Project 2010). These businesses need an organisation-wide approach to energy usage and carbon management. Verco provides strategic carbon management advice, helping business leaders develop innovative and market leading strategies to meet their low or zero carbon aspirations.
We can make sure you create real commercial value and achieve maximum return on your investment, and we can advise you on the regulatory implications and technical feasibility of your energy efficiency and clean energy projects.
Our blue-chip clients in this field include Landrover, JCB, Aggregate Industries and SABMiller.
PureCircle published that its high purity stevia sweeteners have a carbon footprint that is as much as 82% lower and a water footprint that is as much as 97% lower than other publicly available sweetener benchmarks
Camco Advisory Services Ltd (CAS) worked with Aggregate Industries to develop a strategic approach to carbon management. The programme identiﬁed a series of CO2 emissions reduction projects within the company’s UK operations. The carbon management strategy includes a business case, an opportunities register, an implementation plan and on-going strategic support.
We investigated the potential for whole house low carbon refurbishment to deliver 80% carbon reductions in existing homes. The work involves identifying the whole package of carbon reduction measures that are required, the cost per house of installing all these measures, the key barriers to a whole house approach and the main policy instruments for delivery. Our research fed into the UK Government’s ‘Heat and Energy Saving Strategy’.
We helped establish the Existing Homes Alliance, which sets out the action required from businesses, housing and environmental organisations and government to put the UK housing stock on the road to deep cuts in carbon emissions and energy bills.
Large, long term, phased developments such as the 9500 home Northstowe exemplar of sustainability pose critical challenges for the delivery of community energy systems due to the requirement for early investment in shared generation and distribution infrastructure set against uncertainty in the timing, value and size of the customer base and associated revenue streams.

We undertook a carbon management scoping study for the BBC, co-funded by the Carbon Trust.
Delivering low and zero carbon growth
Camco Advisory Services Ltd (CAS) was commissioned by the Greater London Authority, on behalf of the London Energy Partnership, to define and develop the concept of ‘Energy Action Areas’ for London. These were then translated into a workable programme of action to deliver results on the ground. We proposed that a series of pilot Energy Action Areas should be centered on large scale regeneration projects where there was momentum building upon and large scale energy infrastructure being established.
