Climate change

Steppes ecosystemSteppe Ecosystem Restoration Project in Moldova, Ukraine and Russia. Our project includes assessment of the potential for carbon sequestration in humus-rich steppe soils, and for sustainable agriculture under climate change pressures

While arguments persist over the causes of climate change, its effects are already with us world-wide. Mott MacDonald’s breadth of skills and services and global reach makes us ideally qualified to advise on how to respond to the challenges.

From the strategic planning for water resources in the UK, to the development of climate change awareness programmes in the coastal zone of Bangladesh, to delivering project finance from carbon credits for a biomass power plant in Romania – we deliver complex projects which need understanding of the drivers and impacts of climate change, as well as expertise in engineering and project management.

Issues related to climate change are becoming increasingly integrated within our projects across all sectors. Our carbon footprinting and energy efficiency experts are assisting with asset management in the water, power, building and construction sectors, while our geotechnical teams are researching ways of using ground source heat exchangers to heat and cool buildings by exploiting the thermal mass of foundations.

Our skills and services focus on two main areas:
