We overcome the governance, funding and technical barriers by implementing concepts and solutions such as building with nature, blue-green infrastructure (BGI), climate-resilient asset management and investment planning, social innovation, sustainable procurement, and peer learning. Together with many of our partners, we shape the world into a more liveable, safer and sustainable place.
Key issues in climate adaptation like dealing with flooding, drought, heavy rainfall and other complex scenarios affect local, regional, national and international communities. We facilitate the valuation and implementation of the most relevant eco-based solutions – replacing traditional grey infrastructure with BGI such as green corridors and roofs, permeable paving, rainwater harvesting systems.
Procurement has proven to be a very powerful tool for sustainability and climate adaptation. We are promoting the development and uptake of a circular procurement framework, contributing to limit climate change effects but also increase the adoption of climate adaptation solutions while fostering eco-innovation.
Many of our clients including cities, private companies and national governments work within a different context but are dealing with similar challenges. Peer-to-peer collaboration allows these stakeholders to learn from each other’s successes and failures, fosters the sharing and exchange of knowledge, expertise and tactical know-how, and provides an opportunity to inspire. For these reasons, we are successfully applying novel City-2-City, Procurer-2-Procurer and Farmer-2-Farmer approaches in various projects, and have developed an Online Community Platform which provides a fitting channel for continuous dialogue and knowledge transfer.
We help societies across the world become more resilient to climate-related threats. We are experienced in convening multiple stakeholders, governments, the private sector, civil society, intergovernmental bodies, and knowledge institutions to recognise, build and promote excellence to accelerate climate adaptation. Notably, we facilitated the building of Global Centre on Adaptation from initial idea to global centre by building relationships and formalising partnerships, mobilising resources, developing its business and organisational model, drafting its first working programme and strong communications.
The effects of climate change are a major risk for loss of life and economic damage for governments, investors, businesses and banks. By considering the climate change risks in investment planning and asset management, it will allow future infrastructure, assets and markets to be more resilient to the effects of climate change. We have experience in optimising investment planning by exploring the mainstreaming of these investments with other policy domains and help identify cost-optimal adaptive infrastructure upgrades by exploring a variety of technical designs: with adaptability and life-cycle costing for various performance levels.
This week the HOOP partners got together in Porto to celebrate the 3rd General Assembly.
♻️It is always exciting to come together & consider our achievements and the challenges ahead!

Fostering the development of the #circular #bioeconomy reduces pollution by maximising the use of side & residual streams from agriculture, food processing & forest-based industries.
One of the many ways the bioeconomy contributes to the #EUGreenDeal: https://op.europa.eu/en/web/eu-law-and-publications/publication-detail/-/publication/66722c8d-2e03-11eb-b27b-01aa75ed71a1
That’s a wrap! Thank you for joining our supersession on #batteries at #TRA2022. Maarten Buysse from @baxcompany presented insights from #GEN3BAT projects and the session concluded with a panel discussion of 3 battery clusters.
