Our activities are driven by eight themes of climate change
Under these eight themes, we have identified specific challenges to address climate change mitigation and adaptation. All our activities are attached to these specific challenges.
The strategic challenge is to monitor and measure greenhouse gas to help climate change mitigation.
The strategic challenge is to increase the capacity of society, cities and infrastructure to be able to adapt to climate change.
The main strategic challenge is to create a low carbon culture that engages companies, communities and citizens to reduce their impact and connect globally on the climate change challenge.
The strategic challenge is to move from centralised energy, waste and water utilities to decentralised, integrated systems and more sustainable transport systems.
The strategic challenge is to create energy efficient low carbon new buildings and retrofit old buildings.
The strategic challenge is to support the adaptation of water engineering and agriculture to climate change and link it to enhanced land use and ecosystem services delivery.
The strategic challenge is to increase resource efficiency and turn waste, including food waste and carbon dioxide (CO2), into a resource.
The strategic challenge is to contribute to the transition of a bio-based economy to reduce our carbon footprint.
