Carbon removals options and project development
One of 3Keel’s specialisms is working at the intersection of climate change and the natural environment. We have a forester, a farmer, a chartered surveyor, and conversation researchers on our team so we really understand the realities and technical detail of land management and ecosystems. Through our cross-business Carbon Removals Group we develop credible and responsible approaches to nature-based carbon dioxide removals – a topic of increasing interest in national and corporate net-zero delivery.
In collaboration with our trusted associates, we can also help turn theory into reality by creating removals projects and the investment vehicles to fund them.
Implementing your climate strategy
Understanding your climate impact and developing a strategy are the “easy” bit. The real hard work starts when you turn to implementation and delivery. We work with clients to embed climate action in businesses and supply chains – from corporate policy development to product innovation, supplier engagement, training, tool development and programme management. Given our extensive industry, NGO, research, and expert network we know who to turn to when we get to the limits of our knowledge on a specific topic.
Emissions data management, reporting and assurance
Emissions data collection, management and reporting is becoming increasingly sophisticated as businesses, customers and consumers demand greater transparency and granularity of information on climate risk and impact. While there are a dizzying number of software solutions, initiatives, and standards out there, we understand the reality of ensuring emissions data is reliable: without reliability there is no trust and without trust the data will be ignored by decision-makers. Examples of work on carbon data include our long-standing advisory role for the Tesco climate change team, where we have supported them over many years get their store and logistics carbon data externally assured for their annual report.
Given the need for carbon data solutions to be agile we are increasingly using flexible business intelligence platforms, such as PowerBI, to design and manage bespoke corporate and product carbon data solutions that feed off existing product and supply chain datasets.
Finally – with all the hard work done – it is important to communicate your climate change ambitions and successes. In our experience, the quality of communication is as important as the technical content and so both need careful consideration if you wish to influence and engage audiences (whether they are consumers, technical managers, or board members). Our in-house graphic designer can work with you to ensure the design quality of our deliverables match the technical rigour of the contents. A great example of this is our work for the British Retail Consortium on their industry-leading Climate Action Roadmap.
