Rising to the Challenge
A global consensus has emerged regarding the critical need to address climate change and the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions. Governments, industries, and companies around the world are rising to the climate change challenge. They are engaged in the evaluation, development, and implementation of measures, policies, and practices to limit greenhouse gas emissions, with the objective of establishing an effective yet workable regime that accounts for the significant diversity of economic and political interests.

Our objective is to help clients assess the risks and benefits presented by climate change developments at the state, regional, national, and international level and to advise them on how to position themselves to comply with new requirements and, where possible, gain competitive advantages from them.
