Carbon Strategy and Consulting for the oil and gas industry

Why conduct a carbon strategy engagement?

To stay on track with global targets to limit climate change, it is essential that all companies, especially in hard-to-abate sectors, help mitigate emissions outside of their value chains while their own reduction efforts ramp up.
A well-crafted carbon credit strategy is a key tool that firms can use to proactively address their hard-to-abate emissions, align with increasing investor and customer demand for sustainable practices, and even help develop technologies to advance their own future decarbonization.

While there has been significant noise and criticism surrounding use of voluntary carbon credits in recent months, we now have more examples and analysis than ever before to point the way towards the kind of strategic engagement in the market that minimizes risks (e.g., negative media coverage) and maximizes benefits (e.g., companies in hard-to-abate sectors becoming models for their peers in transparent, high-quality carbon credit claims). Such strategic engagement can help shore up a company’s long-term viability in an increasingly environmentally conscious world.

Whether your organization is just getting started on your climate journey or is already on a sustainability path, our team of climate experts is here to help navigate through the complexities of developing a clear and concise carbon strategy.
