Clients case studies

ECCM has a track record of successfully delivering work to a wide range of clients in both private and public sectors. We have delivered to major European companies; recent work includes coordinating carbon baseline assessment of sites in Scotland for BP (a member of the Scottish Forestry Alliance). We also provide ongoing scientific and technical support to The CarbonNeutral Company, a London based company that sells carbon offsets in the voluntary market.

ECCM works in partnership with organisations and companies developing sustainable projects in areas of poverty and environmental degradation such as UK- and Mozambique-based Envirotrade Ltd, the UN Convention to Combat Desertification and the World Conservation Union (IUCN). Below are selected case studies from our range of clients:
