The UK like many other countries is a signatory to the Kyoto protocol and has a legally binding obligation to reduce the carbon footprint to 80% of 1990 levels by 2050. This has mandated several regulations from the government both for large organizations as well as for the non-energy intensive organizations such as local authorities, public buildings etc. Successive governments have also architected innovative subsidies and grants such as the Feed-In-Tariff, Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme to motivate the industry to engage in large scale schemes in the clean energy space.

In line with its vision, Fortech has developed expertise in this domain and has a wide range of clientele globally. Fortech has also been engaged in several sustainability schemes having wider social relevance, which were sponsored by the World Bank and the United Nations.


Fortech’s CEEP service lines are broadly categorised as below:

Carbon and Energy Advisory
Fortech’s team has in-depth expertise and experience in providing advice and solutions to industry on sustainability, carbon and energy related matters. Our services are underpinned by a strong conviction that sustainability initiatives should not only result in environmental benefits but also add economic and reputational value to the business.

The Fortech team has established expertise in best practice Green House Gas inventory standards, including the World Resources Institute (WRI) protocol, IPCC guidelines and DEFRA guidance.

Assisting clients to develop approaches to sustainability both in house and in the supply chain, which encompass social, economic and environmental aspects, including developing these into a comprehensive strategy with an implementation roadmap.

Climate Change
Higher average temperatures, variability and unpredictability in weather patterns and an increase in the frequency and magnitude of natural disasters are often attributed to Climate Change. This places individuals, firms, cities and countries in an unenviable position that demands both adaptation “ to minimise the impacts of climate change, and mitigation“ to address the root cause of global warming.

Fortech offers expertise in Climate Change Modelling and Consultancy to enable organizations in different sectors to respond to climate change challenges. For instance Fortech offers advice to water companies in reservoir resource management and in doing so help contribute to international mitigation efforts, by helping companies be more energy efficient and advising on using cleaner fuels.

Some of the services include:

Climate Change Adaptation
Fortech makes use of sophisticated tools such as Climate Predictors, Seasonal Forecasting and Sensitivity Analysis to conduct Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for organizations looking to take proactive steps to respond to the potential impacts of global warming on their future business operations.

Climate Change Mitigation
