Climate change and sustainability services
Governments and businesses across the world are increasingly shifting their focus to better understand how their societies and operations might be impacted by changing environmental, social and economic realities. MENA is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change that will manifest itself through increasing prices for, and scarcity of, raw materials including food, water and energy, as well as (in due course) rising sea levels. Governments are responding by introducing new regulations and requirements related to climate change and sustainability and businesses will need to more closely consider the risks and opportunities associated with these changes.
EY is here to help you with this. We have a multidisciplinary team in MENA with backgrounds that cover science, engineering, economics and other disciplines to help you better understand the risks and challenges. We have also developed a range of climate change and sustainability services that will enable you to:
