Green Economy Services

Understanding how the developing green economy will affect you has never been more important. This includes the cost and financial impact of climate and ESG plans, the opportunities and risks from the energy transition, and how green finance could benefit your organisation. As leading cost management experts, we can provide you with up-to-date ESG, net zero and climate change costs and intelligence data to support real-world financial decision-making. We will help you address the business, economic, regulatory and human impacts of climate change and ESG.

Build a business case for action

To reach your climate goals, you require credible net zero and ESG strategies at city, organisation or asset level. You also need to understand the financial impacts and business case for action. We can link climate action plans with cost expertise, keeping you informed on capital costs, return on investment and marginal abatement cost curves (MACC), so you can better evaluate the different mitigation options open to you.

Gain a competitive advantage

As the world economy continues its journey towards net zero, understanding the risks and opportunities for communities, businesses, workers and assets is a key priority. From calculating the financial impact of physical climate hazards, to researching green economy strategies and planning ‘just transition’ frameworks for building an inclusive green workforce, our experts will help you assess the risks and identify any potential opportunities for competitive advantage.

Unlock green finance for your projects

The burgeoning world of green finance is rapidly evolving, from green bonds and competitive grants to new financial vehicles for green projects. Our experts will help you create investment-ready projects, whether funded by established or emerging finance sources, validating your alignment with funder requirements or the latest guidance from the UK Green Finance Institute. We will ensure your projects deliver robust, reportable environmental benefits.

Plan your decarbonisation journey

How do green economy and green finance issues impact your assets and capital plans?
