Digital MRV: Integrated Monitoring Reporting and Verification (iMRV) Tool
Integrated MRV Tool helps to facilitate the operationalization of specific provisions in countries' Climate Change Act, National Climate Change Action Plan, and MRV provisions under the UNFCCC and Paris Agreement. Neo Climate supports the design and development of an effective, implementable, and robust National MRV system in the form of an Integrated MRV Tool for all the GHG sectors and NDC climate change actions (Mitigation and Adaptation) in Africa and Pacific Island Countries. This includes training and capacity building of the stakeholders to make the usage of tools more efficient within the country’s existing monitoring, reporting, and verification practices.
Key activities –
Analyze the country’s existing MRV framework under National Communications (NCs), BUR’s/BTR’s
Gap analysis of country’s existing MRV Mechanism w.r.t development of national MRV system.
Development of an overall strategy and recommendation on national MRV system design
Stakeholder consultations, data gathering, and Inter-linked MRV matrix development
Design and develop a national MRV framework and database
National GHG Inventory and GHG Accounting
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals estimation is a crucial element to achieving the objective of stabilizing the greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere that would avoid dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. Neo Climate provides support to governments of Pacific Island Countries in developing high-quality GHG inventory including activities related to training and capacity building of the stakeholders from different line ministries and sectors for preparation of National GHG inventory as per IPCC guidelines for reporting as National Inventory Report (NIR) under the National Communications and BURs/BTRs to UNFCCC.
Key activities –
Comprehensive review of the previous National GHG Inventory
Identify gaps and the existing key source categories for respective sectors.
Hold stakeholder meetings and training programs to introduce IPCC methodologies
Data collection and surveys from different stakeholders to compile data and information required for calculation.
Undertake GHG emissions calculation from different sectors as per IPCC Guidelines for the defined period
Deliver National Inventory Report as per formal reporting requirements under the NCs, BURs/BTRs.
One of the most significant responses to climate change is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which plays a central role in the implementation of Carbon and Climate commitments. Neo Climate has proficiency in the deployment of GHG mitigation projects across all major and emerging technologies, such as Solar (PV and thermal), and wind including experience in implementing both grid-connected and off-grid projects. Our expertise is not only restricted to these but also extends to biomass, bio-gas, small-hydro, waste-to-energy, geothermal, and biofuels. We help our clients around the world to grow their businesses more sustainably, save money, make a positive contribution to the sustainable development of society and make the planet a better place.
Key Services –
Energy Cost Reduction (Energy Audit)
Energy sector is responsible for contributing to almost three-quarters of global emissions. Governments, businesses, and industries across the world are taking bold actions toward tackling the challenge of global climate change and air pollution by becoming more energy efficient. NCS delivers top-notch energy audit services, which help industries and organizations in their endeavors to achieve energy efficiency and reduced consumption across different sectors. Our activities involve conducting an inventory and measuring energy use, analyzing energy bills, bench-marking, analyzing energy use patterns, identification of potential for savings from cost centers, conducting cost-benefit analysis, preparing energy audit reports, and undertaking post-audit activities to provide a framework for continued improvement in energy use.
Key Benefits –
Reduced energy bills
Adherence to regulatory compliance
Reduced GHG and other emissions
Conservation of natural resources
Reduced maintenance cost
Market recognition and enhanced competitiveness
Growing population, rapid urbanization, and growth in economies have caused per capita availability of water to diminish at an alarming pace. Along with it industrial water consumption and unabated discharge are further aggravating the risk of global water crises. To combat this problem together and make sustainable use of this precious natural resource, it is essential to have an effective water audit in place. NCS delivers high-quality water audit services that can help to achieve greater water efficiency solutions; reduce the production cost; cost savings for meeting internal policies; comply with legal obligations demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and increase market competitiveness.
Key Activities –
Preliminary water survey (PWS) and Detailed water audit
Extensive water mapping and water balances
Assessment of water quality load and discharge
Performance assessment of pumps
Suggestion for water conservation based on the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) principle.
Flow analysis and Leakage detection
Recommendation and identification of strategies for water conservation and cost-benefit analysis.
Organizing training program for sensitizing and raising awareness amongst plant operators, employees, and facility managers.
Carbon Markets (Voluntary and Compliance)
Reducing emissions and decarbonizing economies is the need of the hour, the technology required to do so is not always available and viable. Offsetting carbon emissions is one instrumental way of achieving this objective. Carbon offsetting broadly refers to the reduction in GHG emissions – or an increase in carbon storage (e.g., through the restoration of land or the planting of trees) – that is used to compensate for emissions that occur elsewhere. NCS helps companies and individuals become environmentally responsible/proactive by buying the carbon offsets generated from certified activities/projects that mitigate emissions, enhance community development, restore forests, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
Key Activities –
Assists in identifying areas for emissions reductions and steps needed to reduce current negative environmental impact
Quantify all emissions (including those which are to be offset) and target hotspots for change
Offset the emissions with projects certified by recognized certification standards such as Verra Verified Carbon Standard, and the Gold Standard through a bilateral agreement
