Climate change

Climate Change is a fundamental threat to sustainable development and the fight against poverty. DEM has a specialized unit that provides global services related to Climate Change and Green House Gas Reduction activities through mitigation and adaptation measures.

Our unit constitutes a group of specialized staff with comprehensive experience in the provision of professional technical advice and services to governmental organizations, as well as private enterprises that have a need for or a special interest in services that can lead to a direct reduction in GHG emissions.

The global services include:
Mitigation analysis, vulnerability and capacity analysis, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) measures and tools; institutional development and capacity building, GHG emissions reduction measures through the implementation of energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions, development and Vertically Integrated Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (VNAMAs).

DEM were Pioneers
The core competency of DEM has been founded within the energy sector since the company’s beginning, and one of the core sectors in climate change mitigation. The company has provided technical and consultancy services for over 30 years in implementing and upgrading clean and efficient energy supplies, energy conservation, and demand-side management.

So, before climate change received the deserved international recognition as a critical issue, DEM promoted and contributed to a reduction of CO2 emissions by delivering services that ensured that energy savings and adoption of renewable energy solutions were of paramount importance.

Strong Regional Expertise
Based on the company’s vast experience in South-East Asia, DEM has frequently been selected by the Danish government to assist in its efforts to support sustainable and high profile Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects in the region.

The Seller-buyer Exchange for Carbon Credits
DEM facilitates productive collaborations between both CDM / Joint Initiative (JI), project developers and carbon credit buyers.

To the “seller”, DEM can provide experienced assistance regarding all the stages of project identification, formulation and implementation – from the conceptualization of a potential CDM/JI project to the final registration with the UNFCCC. To the “buyer”, we are able to assist with specific carbon credit acquisitions, portfolio management, project monitoring and risk management, ensuring the delivery of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs).
