Sustainability Advice

SOSJ Consulting helps business, not-for-profit organisations and people improve their environmental footprint. Assistance can be offered in the areas of zero emissions planning, climate change mitigation, environmental management, natural resource management, renewable energy, improving circular economy, and sustainable rural enterprise initiatives.

Practical sustainability advice is delivered ensuring that all environmental, financial and social parameters are considered.

Carbon Advisory

SOSJ Consulting can calculate your annual carbon footprint (greenhouse gas emissions) and help you understand how you can reduce your carbon footprint. Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories can be prepared in accordance with NGER guidelines.

As part of a Carbon Management Plan and/or  Zero Emissions Planning Roadmap, Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) Analysis can be delivered. A Marginal Abatement Cost Curve presents graphically and in a quantifiable manner, the investment performance of carbon abatement opportunities. Volumes of abatement from a suite of carbon abatement opportunities (for example fuel reduction, energy efficiency, renewable energy and carbon offsets) can be compared at different cost scenarios, this ranking of opportunities allows the user to understand what volumes of abatement are achievable at a given point in time.

The MACC curve provides an essential tool for strategic decision making in carbon reduction and zero emissions planning.

SOSJ Consulting has delivered MACC’s for State Government, Local Government and a wide range of private industry sectors.
