For the big sustainability questions, we provide a comprehensive, coherent view of how the transition to a low carbon, sustainable economy will affect commodity industries and regions, helping you to navigate the sustainability landscape. We equip you to make more confident decisions so you can operate more effectively in a changing and uncertain environment.
Policy & Regulation
Evolving climate policy and regulation landscapes demand robust analytical decision-making support. Our global footprint and on-the-ground experience ensure we provide a strong and credible voice, no matter your geography. Our insight, advice and high-quality data will help you understand and manage the transition to net zero by keeping tabs on climate and sustainability related policies and regulations as well as how they impact your business.
The path to net zero will be enabled by changes in financial markets, production, and technology, but shaped by government policies. From helping you understand how these policies impact you, to emission benchmarking and monitoring carbon reduction technology, CRU Sustainability gives you valuable insights into emissions trends, with access to in-depth analysis of current industry and regional GHG emissions, and pathways to decarbonisation.

Understanding the future cost of carbon emissions and their drivers is a key part of making successful business decisions and exploring alternative scenarios.
Stay ahead of carbon market dynamics with accurate forecasts, in-depth analysis, and comprehensive data on carbon prices and forecasts of future carbon prices over the short to long term.
