Company overview

Perspectives is a full-service consultancy dedicated to helping our clients achieve net zero GHG emissions while meeting the challenges of a rapidly changing global economy. We help companies around the world identify their carbon-emissions status, develop successful plans to reduce their carbon footprints, and stay ahead of the curve by translating their climate-related ambitions into sustainable business practices and profitable positions in carbon-trading markets.

Our international team offers more than 20 years of experience in climate policy regulation and carbon markets and climate-related finance. We have the insight to assess your company’s current climate impact, the resources to help you meet your carbon-emission goals, and the expertise to do so in a way that puts your business on a sounder, more sustainable financial footing.

We follow a proven three-step process. First, we comprehensively assess your carbon footprint. This includes both your internal operations and your entire supply chain, from sourcing to subcontracting and through to fulfilment and shipping. Then we work with you to establish firm climate-related targets. Together, we develop a roadmap that helps transform your operations and B2B relationships, meeting your targets and positioning you for sustainable growth.

Perspectives was founded as a spin-off from the Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI) in 2003 when the first theoretic concepts of emissions trading started to be put into real practice by companies and governments for the first time. Today, our mission is still as relevant as it was in those early days:
