CCA offers a range of services designed to ensure that organizations can plan and prepare in a systematic and long term manner to reduce the risks posed by climate change, and take advantage of new economic opportunities and improve their climate resilience.
CCA's expert team stays on top of emerging trends in climate risk and climate action through its network of contacts in green business, technology and regulatory organizations. CCA is present at local, regional and international meetings on green technology and climate issues and regularly meets leading thinkers on climate change mitigation and adaptation. CCA management attended many of the key sustainability and climate conferences including WSSD (Johannesburg, 2002), COP13 (Bali, 2007), COP15 (Copenhagen, 2009) and COP21 (Paris, 2015). CCA staff analyse thousands of information sources and interpret the information and trends most relevant to business in Hong Kong, China and the region. Sources include not only the authoritative intergovernmental science groups, research bodies and the United Nations, but also progressive business organizations and critiques from NGOs, community groups and environmental activists.
CCA staff have deep levels of practical experience and relevant qualifications in carbon certification and measurement, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability reporting. CCA is also a Gold Community member of GRI, the developer of the most widely used sustainability reporting guidelines.
To enable your business to turn risks into opportunities, CCA offers a basket of joined-up services, activities and consultancies which we present in three key areas:
Information and Intelligence

Capacity Building and Training
Sustain growth and generate new opportunities
The transition to a net-zero carbon economy envisioned in the Paris Climate Agreement offers many opportunities for green growth and new goods and services.
But when signatory governments implement the accord, the measures will carry serious hurdles for those not aware of the implicit changes a net-zero carbon economy will bring.
The CCA team can supply up to date information and contacts related to innovations, opportunities, trade-offs and technical and process solutions responsive to changing times and changing needs.
Enhance branding and strengthen competitive advantage
Consumers worldwide are becoming more concerned about the environmental impact of what they are buying.
To satisfy new customer expectations, companies must innovate to create products and services that are climate-friendly.
A comprehensive climate strategy brings the obvious benefits of enabling a business to demonstrate social license as a responsible corporate citizen.
Taking responsibility for environmental impact and communicating achievements in sustainability will give a business the opportunity to tap into new markets and resources.
When this is combined with our communications services
, it means opportunities for enhanced publicity, image rebranding and customer base expansion.
Save costs and minimize risks
Understanding and managing your environmental impacts has become essential as governments start to turn overall targets into firm regulations. Emissions reduction, energy efficiency and more accurate measurement of both will form an inevitable part of this new business environment.
Identifying and reducing your emission hot spots can help you improve operational efficiency and avoid any unforeseen costs of environmental compliance.
Planning ahead and avoiding catch-up on costs and risks can potentially improve the bottom line and providing your customers with the highest quality and best value products and services.
Engage employees and increase morale
As public awareness on climate change and sustainability increases, the best employees will want to work with organizations that demonstrate climate leadership, influencing peer industries positively and being viewed as socially engaged companies.
Meeting employees' expectations and personal beliefs regarding the world their children will inherit will be increasingly crucial to sustaining their motivation, morale and loyalty.
