About Us

Global to Local is a Climate Change and Sustainability consultancy established in 1996. We are a virtual (ie home office) based organisation.

With no central office to run, our administrative costs are consequently very low - which is reflected in the fees we charge to clients.

We have a team of very experienced consultants with successful track records in low carbon solutions and climate resilience.  Our work includes strategic policy advice, organisational change, specific technical solutions, implementation support and evaluations.

We do not deliver “off the shelf” products – rather we work cooperatively with clients to identify their needs, aspirations and organisational capabilities. The amount of repeat business we have received is testimony to the success of our approach.
