Sustainability & Cleantech Services
At EY we believe sustainable business is about creating long-term value by embracing opportunities and managing risks from environmental, social and economic factors.
We understand that your needs are increasingly complex as you transition to a low carbon, resource-constrained economy. To help you maximise value from this transition and navigate the evolving sustainability landscape, we have assembled a one-stop-shop, global team with wide-ranging experience across tax, government, regulation, corporate finance, corporate social responsibility and industry.
We encourage you to see sustainability differently. We take a pragmatic, holistic and commercial view of your sustainability programmes, allowing us to tailor bespoke solutions to your individual needs. These solutions are designed to protect and enhance value from sustainability-related investments, minimise risks, reduce costs, accelerate transformation programmes, and ultimately, to create more sustainable businesses.
- Electric vehicles are moving into the fast lane
Battery-powered electric vehicles (EV) are poised to change the social, political and economic landscape – while also transforming existing vehicle manufacturers and creating new enterprises and business models. In partnership with our Global Automotive and Global Power & Utilities Centers, the Global Cleantech Center is exploring this new emerging ecosystem.
- Chief Capital Officers: essential or not?
Just as the world thirsts for clean energy, companies are striving to provide for their thirst for capital. In conjunction with the Global TAS Capital Agenda initiative, we are examining the need for early stage companies to focus on these specialized skills.
Practically speaking, companies — cleantech and otherwise — should be thinking about their capital base in four dimensions:
- Raising capital
- Investing capital
- Preserving capital
- Optimizing capital
Within certain segments of cleantech, the capital needs are enormous because most of the technologies and infrastructure that will power the future are still in early-stage development or just entering commercialization. This leaves a funding gap that will require focus, innovation and no small degree of determination to fill.

- Water technologies are in demand
In both emerging and western geographies, the demand for water is increasing at rates that cannot be satisfied with existing systems and sources – globally, the demand for potable water is expected to double in the next 20 years. From investors to global corporations, new technologies and businesses are being created to address this global opportunity.

- Accessing global markets: emerging to global & global to emerging
As the world becomes increasingly connected, our clients look to us, as the most globally integrated organization in our profession, to create advantage for them through our global reach and capabilities.
