Perspectives Climate Group

Perspectives is an independent group of highly qualified consultants and researchers providing the private sector, governments and non-governmental organisations (NGO) with practical solutions for domestic and international climate policies, climate finance, and international greenhouse gas markets.

Perspectives is internationally recognized for its outstanding contribution to establishing and advancing the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), including the successful design of UNFCCC-approved baseline and monitoring methodologies and the management of complex Programmes of Activities (PoAs). In addition, Perspectives has been leading the development of pioneering approaches for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) in many countries and sectors around the world – both on the conceptual as well as on the practical level. We strive for environmental integrity and effectiveness of climate policy interventions.

Building on  experiences accumulated over decades, Perspectives’ team is applying its technical and political expertise to support governments in the update and implementation of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement. Our deep knowledge of numerous economic sectors at various stages of development and their potential mitigation contributions as well as our analytical work on national mitigation targets lends itself perfectly to develop the mitigation strategies underpinning NDCs. We support the development of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) procedures for mitigation and adaptation, including assessment of sustainable development co-benefits.

We strive for environmental integrity and effectiveness of any climate policy, climate finance and adaptation, and are contributing to the evolution of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and other international climate finance providers through policy advice and funding proposal development. Throughout the eventful history of international climate policy, Perspectives has provided first-rate advice on the latest policy innovations – and we are at your disposal for designing the innovations of the future.
