How will net zero impact your business and markets?

Unlike many previous market disruptions, the move to net zero will impact both the way we do business (operations and business models) as well as the buying priorities and processes of your clients. 

The scale and the extent of the change needed to achieve net zero means good market intelligence is vital to a thorough evaluation of the net zero opportunity.

Organisations who can accurately assess the implications for clients of this net zero transition and then adapt quickly to the changing needs will survive and thrive. 

Cambium’s EVALUATE services provide expert market insight on the changing market dynamics and opportunities created by the UK’s move to a net zero economy.

Market research

A Professional body, with members in over 15,000 service companies, wanted to understand its members progress in leading activity to address sustainability driven challenges in energy and waste management.  An extensive survey covering multiple industry sectors yielded over 25,000 data points.

Analysis of this data highlighted a ‘sustainability crunch’ where rising pressures to deliver more effective sustainability management required a step change in response by the profession.

The report was well received by the members and provided compelling evidence for action in three key areas – 1.  Leadership 2. Improving the business case for sustainability and 3. Collaboration.

Market anticipation

A newly formed collaboration of innovative technology businesses was evaluating the market potential and barriers to adoption of a new approach to building a community-centred renewable energy microgrid.

At an early stage in its development the collaborators were looking to anticipate the drivers and sources of future market growth.  They were also looking to establish if their approach was sufficiently differentiated to merit further investment.

Cambium worked with the collaborators to better understand their collective capabilities and researched competitive alternative in this market.  These included technology alternatives, such as  batteries, solar panels etc.  Cambium’s support contributed to a successful bid for a further £ multi-million investment to test the approach via a large scale pilot project.

UK low carbon policy analysis

Since 2012 Cambium has a track record of detailed appraisal of UK carbon related policy and legislation.  Examples have included assessing the response of over of 2000 organisations affected by the CRC (Carbon Reduction Commitment) scheme.  Our analysis of key markers of business motivation & performance enabled assessment of company propensity to invest in emission reduction measures.

For Mandatory Carbon Reporting for listed companies, Cambium assessed the compliance readiness by industry sector and mapped company progress on a range of sustainability related measures.  This was used to provide insight for suppliers to highlight  those companies that were leaders and laggards in adoption of carbon management services and technologies.

For ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme), the energy services industry  was surveyed & assessed for their readiness to respond to the energy & carbon reduction opportunities created by the legislation.
