National governments

Aether supports governments in compiling and enhancing their emissions inventories and in related policy development

Governments are required to fulfil a wide range of reporting requirements to international Conventions and Protocols covering climate change and air pollution emissions.  We can provide detailed advice to support these requirements including new requirements anticipated under the Paris Agreement.  Aether has provided consultancy services to many national governments in Europe and beyond including the UK, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Turkey, Barbados, Iceland, Colombia, Grenada and Chile. 

Cities & local authorities

Aether works for cities and other local authorities both in the UK and overseas to monitor and improve environmental performance

In the fight against climate change we are now entering the era of the city.  Aether offers a wealth of experience working with cities and regions to combat climate change and improve air quality. We work at the sub-national level to assist municipalities, local authorities and other organisations to collect, measure and analyse evidence of emissions and the potential impact of local action on emission reduction.  We offer our services in English, Spanish and French and work with associates internationally to ensure our expertise can be applied universally. 

International organisations

Aether brings together multi-disciplinary teams to provide expert capacity building services and key skills in data analysis and inventory review

Aether leads teams to provide organisations with transparent solutions for efficient measurement, reporting and verification (MRV).  Aether supports a range of international organisations such as the European Environment Agency, UNFCCC, IPCC, UNDP and the European Commission with guidance development, data gathering, analysis, quality assurance and reporting. 

Construction and property developers

Aether has many years of experience in undertaking air quality assessments for domestic, commercial and industrial developments.

Air quality assessments are often required by Local Authorities as part of the planning process for developments.  They aim to ensure that local residents are not exposed to poor air quality and that the development will not significantly worsen air quality in the vicinity. The assessments can be standalone reports or form part of an Environmental Impact Assessment.
