Carbon Accounting & Strategy

Climate Change

We believe climate change is the most pressing issue of our time and one that is going to take collective action to address. Our mission is to support the transition to a sustainable future for the earth and its people and in our drive to address climate change we hope to encourage and empower other businesses to do the same.

For more than 10 years, our team of talented and passionate experts have assisted our clients with carbon accounting, emissions reductions, carbon offsetting, climate change strategy development and implementation, and climate risk.

Climate Risk and TCFD

The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is a framework for businesses to ensure that the impacts of climate change become routinely considered in management decisions, and to improve and increase the reporting of climate-related financial risks and opportunities. It has fast become the leading international framework setting a new precedent for climate-related risk management and opportunity identification for large and listed companies as the world transitions to a clean energy future. We assist organisations to analyse their corporate governance in line with the TCFD recommendations; understand and analyse foreseeable climate risks and opportunities to the business; set metrics and targets; undertake scenario analysis and strategic reviews; and prepare company disclosures in line with the TCFD framework.

Climate Change Strategy

Organisations are under increasing pressure to manage the impacts of climate change-related risks to their business. For more than 10 years we have worked with some of Australia’s largest organisations to develop and implement their climate strategy to ensure they succeed in an increasingly carbon constrained future. Our guidance often focuses on change management and balancing structural decarbonisation with carbon offsets. This delivers a climate change strategy that turns climate opportunities into strategic business value. We utilise approaches including internal carbon pricing and Marginal Cost Abatement Curves, which are based on deep and current industry knowledge, to provide pragmatic and usable solutions.

Carbon Footprinting

Calculating and reporting on their carbon footprint underpins all climate action and allows organisations to understand, manage and reduce their impact. Our team is collectively one of the most experienced in the market, providing fit-for-purpose carbon accounting services for organisations both large and small. Our specialists are adept at calculating emissions from the most complex to the most straightforward sources, across all sectors and under key frameworks, including NGERs, Climate Active and the international Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

Emissions Reductions

Emissions reduction strategies provide a tangible means for organisations to mitigate the impacts of climate change. For over a decade we have worked with our clients to identify and support impactful emissions reductions. We are experts in identifying feasible opportunities and quantifying abatement potential, implementation costs and benefits. We are market leaders in securing subsidies and capital grants to drive implementation. Our emissions reduction service streams include: feasibility assessment and implementation support, energy productivity, renewable energy solutions, energy procurement and carbon offsetting.

Net Zero

An unprecedented number of businesses and local governments are taking leadership in tackling climate change by setting a net zero pathway for their organisation. Going net zero refers to achieving an overall balance between greenhouse gas emissions produced and emissions taken out of the atmosphere. We’re one of the leading consultancies supporting organisations and government entities in understanding their carbon footprint and developing mitigation strategies to achieve net zero. We do this in line with best practice against the requirements of the international Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. This includes building business commitment; measurement of carbon inventories; setting targets; developing a strategy and managing risk; taking action on emissions reductions and resource efficiency; and reporting.

Science-Based Targets

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) offers one of the most credible, globally recognised approaches for setting emission reduction targets. Setting a science-based emissions reduction target (SBT) allows an organisation to understand their fair share of the carbon budget and ensures that emissions reductions are in step with science, future compliance obligations, and stakeholder expectations. Setting a science-based target also increases innovation opportunities, cost efficiencies and provides a competitive edge. We assist organisations on the journey in selecting the right science-based target approach depending on size and industry, understanding the main emissions drivers (Scope 1, 2 and 3) and where significant emissions reduction initiatives can be implemented to ultimately achieve the set SBT.

Offset Projects

Carbon offset projects are used to reduce or offset business emissions that cannot be avoided through other means. We support business with the development, registration and ongoing management of carbon offset projects under the Federal Government’s Emissions Reduction Fund, enacted through the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011. Our experienced team provides support across both the industrial and land sectors, to support clients to earn Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) and reduce their climate impact. We have worked as both auditors and advisors on carbon offsetting projects which collectively have saved tens of millions of tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.

NGERs | Safeguard Mechanism

The Clean Energy Regulator’s National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme is Australia’s national framework for reporting and disseminating company information about greenhouse gas emissions, energy production and energy consumption. The Safeguard Mechanism is designed to limit emissions increases across the economy and can lead to significant financial cost if not managed correctly. Complying with NGERs and the Safeguard Mechanism can be a complex and resource intensive process, which is why many organisations choose to partner with us to oversee their reporting obligations. We have one of the most experienced teams of NGER experts in Australia, with diverse skill sets including engineers, economists, policy professionals and data analysts. Over the past decade, we have worked with many of Australia’s largest emitting companies, helping them comply with complex and ever-changing legislation and using this as a lever to identify carbon, energy and cost saving opportunities.
