Strategy Development

Climate Policy Analysis
Our teams of political scientists monitor and assess long term climate change and global energy policies. We also have extensive insights into EU policy developments that give us a good knowledge into the economic impacts of trading schemes. The Kiev office provides in-depth analysis of carbon developments in Ukraine, Russia and central and eastern European countries, while our Washington DC office monitors state, regional and federal initiatives in North America.

Our market tracking, models and databases facilitate forecasting and analyses of price formation, liquidity and risk
Our industry-reference global project database combined with the technical expertise of our partner, Perspectives GmbH, provides us with the resources we need to carry out a range of evaluations on domestic and international offset projects.

Hence we are uniquely positioned to assist countries in preparing and implementing low-carbon growth plans and nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs). We have wide experience in understanding the benefits and challenges related to different climate policy instruments, and can assist in the design and often challenging set-up of various policy measures, including domestic emissions trading schemes, supporting policies for for example renewable energy and energy efficiency. Feeding into this, we have world-class capabilities on MRV.

We understand the challenges related to different technical, financial, methodological, operational and legal aspects of carbon projects, and can assist in the detailed due diligence of this on a bespoke basis, adapted to the specific client needs.
