Sustainability Policy and Guideline Development 

GE3S offers sustainability policy design services to cater the specific requirements of Governments, multilateral organizations like, UNDP, UNIDO, UNEP, Multi-National Corporates and Institutional clients. 10+ years of GE3S’s experience in sustainability policy and framework design makes us an ideal consultant. Consumers are becoming more insistent that the business are done with an act of responsibility towards community and environment. Sustainability Framework or Sustainability Guideline is important to successfully implement entity’s sustainability policy. GE3S leverages the insights of its expert team specializing in sustainability research while designing the Sustainability Guideline, which have been successfully implemented. The sustainability guideline complements UNSDG and ESG objectives. 

Climate Change Policy

Climate change is one of the most challenging problems faced by the world. Addressing it problem requires simultaneous efforts in adapting to changes as well following a low carbon development path. Governments and developmental agencies are developing strategies which meet their domestic as well as international climate change mitigation goals. 

 National level and state level climate change action plans and low emission development strategies are being developed in this regard. Implementation of these plans requires measuring emissions and vulnerabilities, developing robust policies, appropriating domestic budgets, accessing international climate finance (e.g. through NAMAs, INDCs, Multilateral funds etc), developing technology deployment business models and strengthening institutional framework and building capacity of all the stakeholders. 

GE3S offers following services to address the climate change issues: 

  • Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) at national & sub-national level 
  • NAMA Programs 
  • Policy research & analysis 
  • Technology Needs Assessments (TNA) 
  • Monitoring Verification & Reporting (MRV) Systems & Capacity Building 

Ozone Depleting Substances 

Ozone protective layer is critical for protecting against harmful UV radiations targeting our planet and maintaining life on earth. Its depletion is a matter of grave concern for the planet. In order to reduce man-made impact on the Ozone protective layer, the Montreal Protocol was ratified by 197 Nations, and now forms the basis for actions and measures against ozone depleting substances (ODS). Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a major greenhouse gas, has been included under the Protocol since 2016. More recently the Kigali Amendment was ratified under the Montreal Protocol (in 2019) to further strengthen the movement against HFCs . 

Our experts have been helping countries and jurisdictions develop and monitor their ODS programs over several years. We work on all aspects of ODS phase-out management plans including:  

  • Preparation and verification of HCFC phase-out management plan 
  • Market survey to assess the quantities and types of HFCs consumed  
  • Projection of future HFC emissions under Business as Usual (BAU), and establishing emission inventory, 
  • Analysis of current and future HFC mitigation potential, 
  • Technology road-map development for various sub-sectors under refrigeration, air conditioning and foam sector 
  • Technology and cost-benefit analysis of Low-GWP alternatives like natural refrigerants 
  • Design and management of various ODS destruction projects under climate co-financing in Article 5 countries etc. 

Additionally, we also conduct high quality policy analysis as well as knowledge and capacity building in the domain. 

  • HCFC Phase-Out Management Plan 
  • HFC Inventorisation & Technology Roadmap 
  • Design & Management of ODS disposal projects
