Climate Change & Greenhouse Gas

Out team advises numerous clients on mechanisms for measurement and management of greenhouse gases.      

Through our work in the oil & gas, energy and industrial sectors, we understand how greenhouse gas mechanisms affect your business.

Our team has advised some of Australia’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases on:

  • regulatory compliance
  • dealing with greenhouse gas mechanisms in joint ventures
  • passing carbon costs down the supply chain
  • trading in carbon permits and other offsets
  • mitigation and offset projects, including forestry projects giving rise to ACCUs
  • renewable energy and energy efficiency.
