How we help

From providing calibrated emissions data for corporate reporting, through to investment strategy, supply chain audit and litigation support, we can help you to link your marketing, strategy and sustainability teams and develop an emissions fluency across your business. Here’s a snapshot of the ways in which we can help you navigate emissions:

Carbon emissions

Using a detailed, asset-by-asset process we can help you to plot and compare your carbon emissions against your competitors. Our deep understanding of your value chain helps you to identify your key emissions points, respond to policy changes and better understand new technologies. Our mission is to help you develop robust, transparent methodologies that will stand the test of time.

Climate change scenario analysis

We have a robust knowledge of the sustainability issues within the mining and metals sector. This gives us a powerful understanding of how emissions issues and policies impact markets. Through this we create the detailed models, scenario analysis and robust forecasts modern business now demands.

Water analysis

You can rely that our knowledge of mining processes, key water usage, and rapidly advancing alternative technologies will fast track the development of the robust, transparent strategies that you need to develop.

Green premia and market analysis

From market impact scenarios to carbon benchmarking, carbon policy impact analysis, water demand benchmarking – let us help you to take full advantage of the opportunities that green premia and new market assessments present.

Marketing and strategic analysis

Our ability to inherently understand the impact of emissions means that we can use demand, supply, cost and price data across the commodity markets to help you understand the challenges and opportunities the emissions reality offers. 

Finance and investment

Measuring carbon risk and screening potential investments takes specialist metrics and detailed knowhow. We can help you bring new levels of rigour and insight to your financial decision making.

Communications and policy

Developing corporate reporting that embraces ESG is an investor relations imperative. We can help you to play a part in carbon policy advocacy, build relationships with regulators, and better understand the implications of government policy design.
