Climate change is a worldwide problem, requiring both local and global solutions to overcome the challenges this poses.


At AG we understand that Carbon markets, which provide some of these global solutions, are complex and constantly evolving. It is vital you have a team beside you that understands these nuances and can partner with you to provide a solution that is tailored to your specific needs as a business. 

To work with our clients in this area, we have put together a team which can cover all aspects of carbon markets and emissions trading - from compliance and regulatory issues, structuring of transactions in multiple jurisdictions across the carbon value chain, strategy and policy advice on energy and climate change, to pre-compliance and voluntary markets (both primary and secondary market transactions and advice).

The team consists of experts who have worked in this space since the inception of carbon markets. Our experience includes some ground breaking transactions involving carbon portfolios, working with industry associations and advising a sovereign in UNFCCC negotiations. 

Its coverage ranges from the EU, UK, UNFCCC, regional and domestic compliance markets to pre-compliance markets in the UK, the EU, South Africa, China, Australia, New Zealand and North America. To date, we have worked on carbon markets and emissions trading transactions in over 40 countries.
