Climate Focus

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Climate Focus is an advisory company committed to the development of policies and projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Its international and multidisciplinary team works closely with companies, governments and non-governmental organizations on reducing emissions in energy, households, industry, agriculture and forestry. Climate Focus is an independent expert in international and national climate law, policies, project design and finance. It has been pioneering carbon markets ever since their inception, aiming to find a creative and unique solution for every single client, ranging from the development of policies to protect the rainforest to structuring greenhouse gas mitigation projects in the energy sector. Its advice is rooted in a profound knowledge of climate change policies, emission trading schemes and project development. Climate focus believes that cooperation between developing and industrialized nations is a precondition to mitigating climate change, while governments, companies and civil society assume their responsibilities and take action. Emission reductions need to be financed, implemented and administered: Climate focus believes emissions trading and other market-based mechanisms are key to promote investments by the private sector. Solid and equitable policies that are implemented efficiently are needed as basis to promote low-carbon development and sustainable climate policies.
