What we do

We are a specialist climate risk management consultancy.

We work with businesses to help them understand climate risk and to embrace the opportunities presented by the transition to a lower carbon future.

Why Acasta?

Firms that align their business models to the transition to a Net Zero world will be rewarded handsomely. Those that fail to adapt will cease to exist.

Having closely followed the dynamic and fast changing environment in which corporate entities manage their internal and public position on climate risk, our principals have a leading capability in advising executives on how best to steer their organisations, aligning their objectives with those of their stakeholders.

Our clients will be able to demonstrate a strong competitive position, embracing the opportunities presented by the energy transition.

  • Regulatory requirement

    70% of global CO₂ emissions and GDP are covered by Net Zero targets.

    Mandatory climate disclosures for all UK listed and large companies by 2022.

    Directors will be liable for failing to account for climate risks.

  • Higher costs of capital

    Banks are tightening lending criteria and charging a risk premium where they identify potential gaps in the proper assessment and/or mitigation of climate risk issues by corporate customers.

    Many investors are divesting or optimising portfolios based on the demonstrable assessment, understanding and actioning of climate disclosure issues by investee companies and the development and implementation of appropriate policies to mitigate risks.

  • Stakeholder expectations

    Employee attraction and retention in a more environmentally aware world will be strongly influenced by a firm's commitment to making positive climate and societal change.

    The supply chain and customers are increasingly considering the climate risk impact of firms they engage with.

    Accountants will require to keep pace with the developments and make their clients aware of the increasing scrutiny and reporting requirements.
