Committee on Climate Change

Description

The Committee on Climate Change (the CCC) is an independent, statutory body established under the Climate Change Act 2008. Its purpose is to advise the UK Government and Devolved Administrations on emissions targets and report to Parliament on progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for climate change.

In fulfilling this role its focus is to:

  • Provide independent advice to Government on setting and meeting carbon budgets and preparing for climate change;
  • Monitor progress in reducing emissions and achieving carbon budgets;
  • Conduct independent analysis into climate change science, economics and policy;
  • Engage with a wide range of organisations and individuals to share evidence and analysis.

Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP)

Description

The earth’s climate is changing and will continue to change for decades regardless of greenhouse gas emissions controls. Across the world, response is typically divided into two interlinked components: mitigation and adaptation. Mitigation describes the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimise the changes ahead. Adaptation, on the other hand, is used to describe the fact that further climate change is inevitable and mankind would do well to prepare now for the climate of the future.

Adaptation in its broadest sense is the primary focus of GCAP because in practice most organisations (both public and private) need support to implement appropriate adaptation solutions to minimise the negative impacts of adverse impacts of changing climate.

Our mission is "to passionately provide our clients with expert insight into the effects of climate change on their citizens, on their environments, and on their businesses; and to assist our clients in taking proactive steps to develop sustainable and best-value adaptation solutions to their unique climate change challenges."
