Development of policy requires a sound quantitative understanding of the implications of policy interventions for both business and the environment. The Green House has been commissioned on a variety of projects to provide quantitative data for such policy interventions, such as analyses of potential emission trajectories of individual sectors under various scenarios, and the ability of different companies and sectors to adapt to rising energy prices and emission taxes. We have also been engaged by a number of clients to help them fully understand the implications of climate policy and regulations for their organisations, and to design the framework for the components which make up South Africa’s climate mitigation system.
Through our work, The Green House has also developed a deep understanding of the carbon tax. We offer advisory services to our clients on the risks and implications of the tax for their operations, including preparing their greenhouse gas reporting to align with regulatory requirements and calculating their tax liability.
