Why Environmental Markets?

We now have significant scientific and political consensus that the earth is warming, in part, as a result of human activity. This warming will cause significant consequences for our environment and, in turn, our economies. Increasingly, executives and investors around the globe are actively responding to environmental policies and to the challenges of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. With increasing environmental constraints on enterprise, those companies and organisations who fail to respond to this changing economic landscape, do so at their peril.

Businesses are now required to take more action on climate change. This includes measuring and reporting greenhouse emissions, responding to compulsory emission reduction requirements, reducing emissions from business activities, managing business risks and capitalising on emerging opportunities in new environmental markets.
