Clean technologies and CcaSS-focused services

  • Share

EY's clean technology and CCaSS-focused services incorporate sustainable actions into your business. Our clean technology service identifies how your business can align with climate change and sustainability opportunities. The introduction of regulatory frameworks around permissible carbon emission limits for businesses in order to support climate change mitigation has resulted in the need for businesses to take proactive initiatives to record their carbon emissions and devise ways to reduce them. We look across your business to understand what will work for you from carbon credits, green IT, to green real estate development and transactions.
