We recognise that the road to Net Zero is a long and sometimes difficult journey. Perhaps the most challenging step is the first one – particularly when there are many stakeholders to guide and to consult with. A crucial part of our role is to help your organisation understand what Net Zero means and to put it in context for your business.
We recognise that the answers to an organization’s many questions are not always obvious. We specialise in multiple areas to help our clients build a multidimensional picture of their position and possibilities.
There are three levels to our offering in Net Zero Advisory:
1. Research backed initial advice
The goal is to help you define high level strategic aims and objectives, by providing the pertinent background detail. We explore market drivers, your competitors’ progress and the complexities of decarbonization in your market. We simplify the details and provide a blueprint for your potential trajectory towards Net Zero.
2. Feasibility and scoping of options
By baselining your carbon emissions we begin to longlist the technical options to achieve your goals and identify possible funding sources. The strategy will be refined as scoping continues, to define specific changes and investment.
3. Consensus and decision support
Our team is on hand to support internal discussions and demonstrate the science behind the proposals. Stakeholder engagement and public dialogue forms part of this stage. Once proposals are agreed, we define action plans, priorities, timelines and dependencies to enable a full business case.
How can we support you:
- Explaining a complex topic in simple terms
- Ensuring clients understand the importance of attaining Net Zero, what is expected of them and by when
- Sharing research-based knowledge on the basics of Net Zero planning and trajectories
- Exploring and explaining future energy demand and emerging technologies
- Brokering discussions between clients and government bodies
