Carbon

Step up your carbon action

At the current pace, the world is set to exhaust the Global Carbon budget, or the annual emissions rate that can be sustained, by 2030. World leaders have set commitments with new legislations soon to follow. Investments are increasingly centred around ESGs and consumers are demanding faster change. We need unprecedented carbon action.

Uncover carbon’s commercial value

Deliver effective
carbon action

1

Make climate response, therefore decarbonisation, core to your corporate strategy, not a sideshow audit exercise

2

Map your carbon footprint across your business and supply chains to identify the biggest opportunities for carbon and cost reduction

3

Look at carbon through four impact areas: decarbonisation through energy transition, energy efficiency in processes and real estate, cleaning up legacy carbon pollution, and re-purposing existing assets to elongate their life

4

Deliver carbon impact across tangible areas: water, products, packaging, waste, and energy

5

Tackle the big wins by generating new revenue streams from existing assets to fund the energy transition

6

Help shape policy and participate in delivering winning competitive bids in energy auctions

7

Invest in cross-industry innovation and collaboration around the technologies needed to serve your core business – sustainable fuels, new material and digital technologies

8

Agree on metrics and measurement tools to drive transparency, accountability and decision making. Steward your suppliers (and retailers) to sign up to the same goals

9

Re-purpose disused buildings and abandoned assets. Create new revenues whilst tackling climate response; switch to renewable energy, electrify and improve efficiency

Access the latest thinking across technology and innovation, energy transition, finance and regulation to effectively respond to climate urgency and deliver on your commitments around Net Zero.

Some of our work

Office for Zero Emission Vehicles: Using design to accelerate the adoption of zero-emission road transport

The UK government’s transport decarbonisation plan is a world-leading ‘greenprint’ for building a net zero transport system by 2050. We teamed up with the Royal College of Art to design the blueprint for an emblematic chargepoint as recognisable as Britain’s red post boxes or black cabs.

Accelerating electric bus deployment to reduce carbon emissions

We worked with AMP Capital, a global investment manager, in its efforts to form a joint venture with Enel X, the energy services division of a global utility business with extensive footprint in Latin America. We provided detailed market and on-the-ground analysis to help structure an effective partnership and terms that would help reduce carbon emissions in the region.

Saving energy and cutting carbon emissions in London

We’ve been working with RE:FIT London, the programme set up by the Mayor of London, to help reduce carbon emissions in the UK capital. Working in close collaboration with RE:FIT, we’ve given organisations the support needed to develop their business case for investment in energy efficiency and design the financing package to make this possible.
