collapse of the Soviet Union, the pace of industrialisation
in the region has been particularly marked. Natural
resources exploitation and the colossal investment in oil & gas
in the Caspian region have brought the attention of the international
community to the pressing need to manage greenhouse gas emissions
sustainably. Further, the acute trans-boundary water issues
place economic development across the region at risk.
International regulation and national laws
are tightening and local policy makers and businesses must
adapt to the low-carbon world. Thanks to years of experience
working in the region, Irbaris experts have been assisting
policy makers to integrate regulation and develop operating
frameworks. We have also been supporting leading businesses
in the region to develop carbon strategies and implement energy
efficiency programmes. In addition, we help businesses to identify
opportunities offered by the international carbon market.
Our team has extensive experience
of working in other countries of the Former Soviet Union, particularly
Russia and Ukraine and countries around the Caspian Sea.
