There is no longer any reasonable doubt that the climate is changing. As a direct result of human activity, industrial and everyday domestic emissions of greenhouse gases are accumulating in the atmosphere at an increasing rate. Projections of the impact this will have on global climate, and therefore on our society, economy, and wider environment, are becoming more and more refined.
Royal HaskoningDHV takes climate change and the need to reduce carbon emissions very seriously and recognises the importance of keeping up to date with current thinking surrounding this global issue.
Climate Impact and Assessment
We identify medium to long term climatic changes, and the potential impact of climate change on society, economy, environment, business, health welfare and service provision, and advise on measures to reduce this impact. This assessment can be performed within existing regulatory processes or in the form of strategic policy and planning projects.
Many areas of sustainable development depend on policy improvement, stakeholder engagement, and commitment from organisations to champion change. Our team can facilitate discussion or integrate relevant information to co-create policy and practice that can lead to meaningful change.
Our services offering include the following:
- Vulnerability Assessment;
- Carbon footprinting and mitigation planning;
- Carbon Tax liability screening;
- Climate Change Impact Assessment; and
- Disaster Risk Management.
