So, what exactly is climate change and what do climate change experts do? Climate change is defined as a change in global or regional climate patterns. It is most pronounced from the mid to late twentieth century and forward and is largely attributed to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere produced by the use fossil fuels. Most often when we hear the words “climate change expert” we are speaking of trained scientists who study global warming and document these changes.
Without engaging in a debate on the existence of climate change, suffice to say that the evidence is clear that there is an ever-growing list of well-published scientists in the fields related to climate change, currently employed at the top scientific institutions in the world, and they all agree that the planet is getting warmer, weather patterns are changing, and if something is not done, the outcome is not pleasant to contemplate. Most industrialized nations have come to this conclusion and are engaged in methods of trying to minimize global warming.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms have a multitude of experts and scientists who are engaged daily in fostering biofuels, biochemicals, and sustainability in general. These experts see sustainability as helping to avoid the depletion of natural resources to maintain ecological balance and a desire to meet the needs of the present without compromising future generations. These sustainability experts (often called sustainability consultants, green consultants, eco consultants, or environmental management consultants) are engaged to assist companies in sustainability – economically, environmentally, and socially.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms normally have many different types of “sustainability experts” and offer a wide range of services in biofuels, biochemicals, biotechnologies, biomaterials, synthetic biology commercialization, feedstocks, and hemp/cannabis. These experts are able to assist clients with things like business and financial services (like due diligence, feedstock availability, grants and loans and bio market research), technical and engineering related services (like techno economic analysis, environmental evaluations, feasibility studies, risk analysis and expert witness engagements), and should have strategic partnerships in place to assist clients with insurance, legal, accounting, plant fabrication, feedstock procurement.
