A) CLIMATE CHANGE, CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION & EMISSIONS TRADING
Whether you need to assess a range of solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emission, or would like to learn about pioneering financial instruments to address climate change, we can help you identify and implement the most efficient and practical alternative.
As experts on climate change, we advise our clients on all possible climate change adaptation and mitigation measures.

Because of its long term benefits, we concentrate on
climate change mitigation. Mitigation can be defined, in the particular context of climate change, as “a human intervention to reduce the sources or enhance the sinks of greenhouse gases”. Among the many examples of possible mitigation measures are treating and recycling waste, “using fossil fuels more efficiently for industrial processes or electricity generation, switching to solar energy or wind power, improving the insulation of buildings, and expanding forests and other "sinks" to remove greater amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere”. A sink is a “process, activity or mechanism which removes a greenhouse gas, an aerosol or a precursor of a greenhouse gas from the atmosphere”. This includes forests and other vegetation because they remove carbon dioxide through photosynthesis (see Mitigation and Sink in UNFCCC, Glossary of Climate Change Acronyms).

Usually, our first task in a climate change mitigation project is conducting a carbon footprint analysis to identify sources and sinks of greenhouse gas emissions within an enterprise or community. A carbon footprint analysis can be performed at several levels to account for the scope of: 1) Direct emissions such as those originating from a fleet of vehicles or combustion systems owned by an entity; 2) Indirect emissions such as those originating from the consumption of electricity, heat, or steam produced externally; and 3) Emissions originating from the supply chain and other external sources.

Following a carbon footprint analysis, and seeking to reduce the climate change impact of our private and public clients, while providing them with an additional source of income and minimizing their exposure to environmental liability, Transcarbon provides specific recommendations to reduce emissions and develops greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading projects in the framework of the different carbon trading systems existing in the world,  mainly but not exclusively, the system created by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol.
