Climate change is ushering in a new business paradigm. This shift is creating risks and opportunities for companies.

Energetics works with their clients to ensure that risks and opportunities are identified, managed or optimised, and reviewed regularly.

The greatest risks and opportunities are likely to be driven by shifts in government policy, investment in technology and innovation, and the impacts of social change.

Companies that understand these changes, and shift their focus from compliance and risk management to market leadership, will thrive in the low carbon economy of the future.

Opportunities through technology and innovation
Industry structures undergo major shifts where development of new technologies and innovation are driven by necessity. Climate change presents the greatest driver to reengineer complete value chains through technology investment and innovation.

Market leaders will take an integrated approach to creating new business models and competitive advantage.

Managing social change
Participation in voluntary environmental and sustainability ratings, surveys and indices is an integral part of gaining public recognition and maintaining environmental credibility.

Companies are increasingly under pressure to deliver real energy efficiency opportunities. Public scrutiny requires a company to develop complete understanding of their carbon and environmental performance.

These can be evidenced by participation in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), and other rating programs such as FTSE4Good, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Sustainable Asset Management (SAM) ratings.
