Climate

Climate change, including global warming and the greater risk of extreme weather events such as flooding, droughts and heat waves, is a major global concern.  It is a complex, global issue with scientific, economic, social, political, moral and ethical implications whose impacts are felt locally.

It makes good economic sense to act now to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions.  If we delay acting on emissions, it will only mean more radical intervention in the future at greater cost.  Acting sooner rather than later can also help to achieve long-term, sustainable economic growth from a low-carbon economy.

You need to know how to achieve this long-term, sustainable economic growth.  We can help you by analysing the impact of different climate policies on a variety of sectors and geographies and adding valuable insight through our understanding of the policy process.

Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
