Over the past decade, South Pole has supported more than 50 countries, partnered with international institutions and advised multi-national organisations to design, assess, and implement climate policy, climate finance strategies and carbon market solutions in order to scale up climate action.
Ambitious climate action requires finance. And yet, the current levels of finance for climate action is far below what is required to avoid dangerous levels of climate change.
We help clients to understand climate finance needs; design solutions that drive climate investments; and create blended financing schemes to de-risk climate-friendly investment and increase the flow of climate finance at scale with private capital.
With a growing urgency to act, both national and local governments require expert climate policy support. We design public policies, strategies, roadmaps, and regulations to help the public sector reach climate goals and evaluate climate mitigation and sustainable development impacts.
Specifically, we advise on how to scale-up mitigation strategies and develop long term plans, such as the formulation and design of low carbon strategies, carbon pricing instruments, and other policies that support the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
Carbon market policies are evolving fast. We provide market intelligence to private clients to help them assess risks and opportunities. We also work with governments in designing carbon market policies and preparing for the implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.
