Recent client work
Advocating for the rights of workers and vulnerable groups in the GCC
The Climate Consultancy worked with an international non-profit to identify businesses, civil society, academia and government entities who may be interested in collaborating on an initiative to advance worker welfare. We focused in on the green transition as an enabler of worker rights and used it as an entry point to discuss responsible recruitment and business practices. We then helped the organisation to understand national, regional and international policies and frameworks, and how initiatives on sustainability and the green transition manifest on the ground.
Helping GCC schools to accelerate their transition to a sustainable future
The Climate Consultancy helped to launch the MENA chapter of The Alliance for Sustainable Schools. The network aims to harness the collective influence of its members, engage with their students, and partner with innovative organisations in their local communities to catalyse systems change in five priority areas: buses, buildings, food, uniforms, and education for sustainability. The Climate Consultancy is responsible for driving membership, securing funding, coordinating events and learning opportunities and developing thought leadership on sustainable school models.
Developing a sustainability strategy for a semi-government entity
The Climate Consultancy helped a UAE-based semi-government entity to understand its environmental impact, assess its materiality and develop a medium-term roadmap to reduce its carbon footprint. Proposed initiatives included employee engagement, waste reduction strategies, sustainable procurement and annual sustainability reports to track progress over time.
Developing a five year strategy for a UAE-based non-profit
The Climate Consultancy developed the five-year strategy of a UAE non-profit focused on marine conservation. The strategy focused on helping the organisation to become financially sustainable through innovative revenue-generating activities that delivered impact whilst also securing long-term funding sources.
Developing a COP28 advocacy strategy
The Climate Consultancy worked with an environmental non-profit to define their advocacy strategy and develop a plan for approaching COP28. Support included connecting the organisation with relevant stakeholders to secure a pavilion within the blue zone, as well as defining activities that would help the organisation to raise awareness and achieve impact around the event.
Securing corporate sponsorship
The Climate Consultancy works with a number of organisations to help them with their fundraising goals. We work at the intersection of public, private and civil society to connect stakeholders and build programmes that add value to all parties involved.
