Benviroc Ltd is a SME consultancy company based in Finland. The company was founded in 2006 and has since that specialized in climate change, greenhouse gas inventories, resource wisdom and sustainable development.
The biggest client group for Benviroc is cities and municipalities in Finland and across Europe. We also work with EU Member states, National Governments, ministries, local authorities, private companies and other organisations.
We work in close collaboration with our clients to reach the best possible outcome in each project and take pride in offering our clients high-quality, cost-effective, and flexible service.
Benviroc offers its clients services for preparing and implementing action plans and programs related to climate change and sustainable development. We can assist with data gathering, stakeholder engagement and preparation of scenarios and reports. Our services are tailored to each customer. They range from individual tasks and training to whole-system solutions with final outputs. Services we offer are:
Greenhouse gas inventories: Greenhouse gas inventories are at the core of Benviroc’s expertise. Suvi Monni has worked with national GHG inventory preparation in various European countries and is involved in methodology development under the IPCC as well as under City initiatives such as Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. We offer greenhouse gas inventories conforming to various standards, following the most commonly used methodological frameworks such as the GPC, Carbonn, and the Covenant of Mayors, assisting with everything from data collection to calculation and reporting.
Benviroc is the market leader in Finland in provision of City level GHG inventories, covering more than 70 % of the country’s population under its annual monitoring scheme CO2-report.
Quantifying climate actions: Benviroc supports cities and national governments to identify climate relevant actions within different city strategies and goals such as agriculture and forestry, land-use planning, waste management, energy and transport.
Projecting future emissions: Through our experience in development of projections for international agencies and national Governments across Europe, we apply best practices for prediction of emission development at local and regional levels. We support Cities in identification of their ”Business as Usual” (BAU) development based on relevant indicators and impacts of national measures (including legislation and fiscal measures). Based on the BAU, we estimate the emission development taking into consideration the impact of PaMs and assess the path towards target.
Risks, vulnerability and adaptation: The anticipation of, and preparation for, unavoidable impacts of climate change is becoming ever more important to cities and local authorities. This is increasingly recognized by national as well as international initiatives such as the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy. Our support in adaptation starts with identification of key climate change risks the city is currently facing or is expected to be facing in the future. We then gather information on existing national and local plans to get an overview of current state of adaptation, and the work together with City officials and other stakeholders to identify most relevant adaptation actions.
Reporting: Benviroc has knowledge in the monitoring, reporting and verifcation of climate actions ensuring that the local authorities will have their Plans prepared according to required standards. Suvi Monni has been involved in the evaluation of hundreds of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs), and the preparation of Guidebooks, both used under the Covenant of Mayors. Our experience also enables effective communication of local actions, ambitions and targets.
