Climate change is now a feature of the latest EIA Regulations.
Air Quality Consultants has many years’ experience of working with clients to understand the contribution of their activities to greenhouse gas emissions.
Air Quality Consultants works with organisations to deliver low and zero-carbon outcomes.
Emissions of greenhouse gases from a wide range of sources, both current and proposed, have been quantified, with a focus is on carbon dioxide and methane.
GHG Assessment frequently supports planning applications and permitting for a wide range of developments.
Air Quality Consultants works with organisations to measure their corporate emission footprint including from energy use in buildings, industrial processes and company vehicles, following GHG Protocol Guidance.
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions occur during the demolition and construction phase, and throughout their lifetimes of developments. Air Quality Consultants uses a lifecycle approach and evaluates specific design features and mitigation measures to minimise the GHG footprint.
Climate Change Action Plans
Ambitious actions will be required to limit global warming. Air Quality Consultants works with organisations to deliver low and zero-carbon outcomes through Climate Change Action Plans setting out specific and measurable targets to reduce carbon emissions.
Airport Carbon Accreditation
Air Quality Consultants supports airport operators map carbon emissions, reduce and optimise these emissions and offset remaining emissions to achieve carbon neutrality.
We provide support and advice on environmental and socioeconomic impacts to support to major development banks and other funders to help prioritise investments targeted at issues such as climate change and air quality.
Climate resilience looks to ‘design better’, in order to anticipate as best we can the future impacts of climate change, to ensure that the environments we create have the adaptive capacity to absorb climate stresses, improve sustainability aspects, and ultimately ensure future preparedness for the impacts of climate change. Our extensive technical expertise allows us to holistically design with climate change at the forefront, to ensure that the risk of climate impacts is managed.
Strategic Support for Local Authority Action
Action planning for the environment is becoming ever more sophisticated, with overlapping, data driven sectors such as climate change mitigation and resilience, air quality, noise, the circular economy and ecological protection. We can build the tools required to track data and evidence, analyse the impacts of measures across a range of outcomes and help assemble optimised plans and strategies.
