climate policy made in Germany

The complex "climate policy" results from numerous cofactors arising from the global economy's interdependence on carbon dioxide emitting hydrocarbon energy sources and because carbon dioxide is directly implicated in global warming, making global warming a non-traditional environmental challenge. climate policy

the greenwerk. is an advisory firm for climate and sustainable energy policy. Based on our background and expertise, we offer a wide range of services to our clients in both developing and developed countries.

Our work focuses on instruments and activities for promoting greenhouse gas mitigation and renewable energy, in order to foster international efforts and climate finance to combat global warming. On climate finance, the greenwerk. navigates public and private actors from developed and developing countries through different layers of the climate finance landscape. We help to operationalize results of the Paris Agreement, clarify contentious technical definitions on the UNFCCC level, assess the impact of transformational climate finance, analyse improved involvement of finance institutions such as MDBs, observe the latest GCF and Standing Committee developments and offer support for accessing various funding sources.

the greenwerk. contributes to a global knowledge transfer on climate and energy policy through facilitation of capacity building missions and workshops in various countries and sectors, for numerous clients. Our focus hereby is on climate finance and GHG mitigation instruments, such as NAMAs or market based mechanisms, and their linkage with the climate policy landscape. In addition, we have authored guidance documents, online courses, newsletters and various other publications.

In addition, the greenwerk. conducts research on innovative financing models for transformational changes in the energy sector and sustainable use of resources in the future. Furthermore, we offer project management services, and conduct trainings for junior experts.

sustainable energy for all

For mitigating anthropogenic climate change, we, at the greenwerk., strive for fair and sustainable use of global resources and access to renewable energy for all.

We are committed to high quality and integrity in our work and in finding professional solutions with our international partners.

We think climate and energy, in a sustainable fashion. Our focus is on mitigation, climate finance, promoting RE/EE, and adaptation.

the greenwerk. focuses on shaping climate and energy policies, including approaches for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, the design and application of international climate finance instruments such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the development of low carbon policy frameworks in developing countries, in particular Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMAs). In addition, we work on renewable energy promotion and adaptation to climate change as outlined below.

mitigation

What is the Paris agreement and why is climate policy so important?

The Paris Agreement is an agreement within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change dealing with greenhouse gases emissions mitigation, adaptation and climate finance starting in the year 2020. Get more information about UNFCCC climate policy

Tackling global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is an imminent need for sustaining the earth for future generations. Worldwide, national governments and corporate entities are starting to increase their efforts to mitigate GHG emissions. the greenwerk. has outstanding experience with designing, applying and analyzing promising GHG mitigation instruments.

We have a clear focus on developing robust and effective policies and measures with mitigation benefits in developing countries (such as Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions – NAMAs and low-emission sector strategies). Over the past years, we have designed and contributed to numerous mitigation strategies and action plans in various sectors and countries. We have contributed to several NAMA guidance documents for multilateral agencies, and analysed the international policy process on enhanced mitigation efforts.

Additionally, we have been working on market-based instruments, such as the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Here, our focus is on up-scaling mitigation activities to bundles, programmes (Programme of Activities - PoAs), and developing standardised baselines. Furthermore, we contribute to the debate on future market mechanisms under the UNFCCC (with particular focus on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement). Based on this experience, we have gained extensive expertise in particular in creating innovative measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) approaches.

promoting of renewable energy and energy efficiency

A sustainable use of resources is imperative for meeting today´s demands, and those of future generations. In this context, we believe that the employment of renewable energy (RE) and further deployment of energy efficiency (EE) measures plays a highly crucial role. We are therefore working on initiating and promoting the transformation of the global energy sector towards sustainable development. Together with our partners and clients, we are aiming at developing innovative approaches to promote renewable energies and energy efficiency.

climate finance

Under the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement, developed countries committed themselves to provide new and additional financial resources to developing countries for addressing adaptation needs and enabling low-emission development pathways. Funding may flow through various bilateral and multilateral channels that are based on various frameworks and requirements. Among these are prominent climate funds such as the Adaptation Fund (AF) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF), which recently received resource commitments of more than 10 billion USD to foster transformational change in developing countries. So far, climate finance provided has not been limited to specific instruments; common are grants and concessional loans, commercial loans or guarantees while private entities will increasingly be enabled to make use of result-based-finance approaches.

the greenwerk. navigates public and private actors from developed and developing countries through different layers of the climate finance landscape. We help to operationalize results of the Paris Agreement, clarify contentious technical definitions on the UNFCCC level, assess the impact of transformational climate finance, analyze improved involvement of finance institutions such as MDBs, observe the latest GCF and Standing Committee developments and offer support for accessing various funding sources.

adaptation

The longer it takes for different approaches to mitigate global warming, the more important successful adaptation activities become for both developed and developing countries. The greenwerk is particularly experienced in providing support for elaborating frameworks for adaptation planning and related measurement and evaluation (M&E), building on an innovative set of indicators that allows quantification of adaptive benefits. Furthermore, we are familiar with the assessment of economic instruments to promote adaptation activities.

Our geographical location in northern Germany, as well as our local network moreover allow us to contribute to a global dialogue on urban flood protection measures. By bringing experts to Germany we share experiences in fields such as integrated flood risk management, urban flood prevention & protection, river engineering, retention areas, and water management.

activities

In all our advisory activities we reflect a fair and sustainable use of global resources and access to renewable energy for all, particularly Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States. We are committed to high quality and integrity in our work and in joint approaches to identify professional solutions with our international partners.

research

Some climate policy fields lack sufficient scientific exploration that can serve as basis for practical application of mature policies or instruments, yet. This is where the greenwerk. staff´s research activities create innovative solutions fulfilling highest scientific demands through e.g. peer-reviewed publications. Further the promotion of PhD and master student activities responding to on-the-ground challenges are a core focus of the greenwerk. Through presentations at conferences, UNFCCC side events or workshops, the greenwerk. seeks to foster knowledge sharing with institutions and individual experts worldwide.

delegation trips

Based on our experience, only an international dialogue can lay the foundation for deriving a global approach for a sustainable use of energy, as well as for tackling anthropogenic climate change. In light of this we facilitate delegation trips to Germany for bringing together global expertise.

capacity building
