Climate Policy Consulting.
To define and implement mitigation strategies.
In order to meet the central goal of the Paris Climate Change Agreement – which is to limit global warming to well below 2°C and as close to 1.5°C as possible, and to achieve climate neutrality in the second half of this century – robust climate planning is required (UNFCCC, 2017).
EcoTraders’ experts help governmental and corporate entities define and implement ambitious action, delivered by cost-effective and practical interventions, and supported by a robust impact assessment.
We support our clients in formulating a GHG mitigation strategy that fits their long-term needs and local characteristics.
• At a national or governmental level, we help countries comply with the UNFCCC requirements and elaborate their Independent Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) or Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and, since the Paris Agreement, their Long-Term Low Emission Development Strategies (LT-LEDS).
• At a corporate level, we help our clients achieve sustained growth in a decarbonized future by defining and implementing sound, practical, climate-related corporate policies.
