Climate Strategy

Environmental policies and regulations are increasingly important factors driving business strategies and profitability. Future business success depends not only on being aware of this importance, but on corporate executives and managers having a deep understanding of environmental regulatory developments and the direction future policies are likely to take.

NERA experts combine extensive hands-on experience with state-of-the-art analytical tools to help clients with this understanding, and with shaping strategies that allow businesses to prepare for, adapt to, and even capitalize on new and evolving environmental policies and regulations.
 
We offer expert assistance at every stage of the processes related to developing and implementing business strategies related to environmental policies. We provide independent advice on the current and likely future direction of environmental policy.  Our experts analyze the impact of regulations and policies on industries and markets. We help businesses develop plans and strategies, including portfolio investment and compliance strategies. And we are experts at communicating plans, strategies, and outcomes to all stakeholders.
