Governments, organizations, and people in every sector face the dual challenges of reducing greenhouse gas emissions (“climate mitigation”) while also preparing for the acute and chronic impacts of a changing climate already underway (“adaptation”). Doing this requires strategic and integrated planning efforts that span organizational silos, from operations, capital investments, and finance to communications and community and stakeholder engagement.
Cadmus brings decades of experience helping organizations develop robust plans across key greenhouse gas emissions sectors and assessing the vulnerability of critical assets to climate change, extreme weather, and other impacts. From business resilience and corporate carbon footprint assessments to supporting urban sustainability and climate plans in major cities, Cadmus experts work across all sectors to plan for deep emissions reductions and robust climate preparedness. Our team brings a customized approach to climate planning and implementation that includes working with clients to both develop standalone mitigation and adaptation plans and to incorporate climate-related considerations into existing policies and programs. We also help our clients characterize and explore the co-benefits, social equity implications and conflicts of integrative adaptation and mitigation practices, illuminating pathways to leverage climate action to achieve multiple goals.
