World-leading climate change and sustainability support for four decades
Ricardo draws on four decades of experience in helping the public and private sectors to address climate change. We are at the forefront of efforts by businesses and governments to understand the implications of climate change, and to develop effective strategies and policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and drive operational cost and risk down.
We have a comprehensive understanding of the technologies and behaviours needed to survive, thrive and remain competitive in a low carbon economy. This expertise has enabled us to help you gain a competitive advantage through sustainable planning.
Our climate change and sustainability specialists include national and international experts in climate change policy, low carbon technologies, carbon management, emissions trading and greenhouse gas inventories. They regularly represent the UK on European and international working groups. Such experience gives us unique insights into upcoming issues, and likely policies and regulations.
We work closely with international donors and Governments to mitigation, adaptation and governance policies, as well as financial readiness support design and implement policies. In the private sector, we provide board-level support to help companies understand their carbon emissions and climate change related opportunities and risks.
Ricardo is supporting countries to implement their climate commitments under the Paris Agreement - Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) - including the development of NDC implementation plans, sectoral action plans (e.g. for power, transport, industry etc.), National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and climate investment plans to enable countries to raise finance from public and private sources.
