Climate Action Services

We help clients to get started on their low-carbon transition journeys by defining boundaries and estimating carbon footprint across different scopes and activities. Our deep understanding of GHG protocol, emission factors, sector and geographic differences, and in house accounting tools help us in comprehensive and auditable assessment of carbon footprint.

  • Assessment of Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 GHG emissions footprint in accordance with international standards including GHG Protocol and ISO 14064
  • Assessment of financed emissions for banks, financial institutions and insurance companies to understand portfolio level climate risks
  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to comprehensively assess environmental footprint of products and services
  • Support towards publication and listing of Environmental Product Declarations (EPD)
  • Development of climate scenarios including modelling of sectors-specific physical and transition risks 
  • Development of climate risk framework to include likelihood of occurrence and severity of financial impacts

We support clients in taking forward the results of assessment with target setting and implementation of decarbonization solutions. We work closely with client leadership and functional teams to define appropriate targets in the client’s sector and market context.

  • Setting Net Zero and low-carbon transition targets in accordance  with Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) including method selection, model preparation and target validation 
  • Benchmarking of energy management best practices in peer organizations
