Asset owners, builders and operators have much to gain and much they can lose due to climate change. The transition to a low-carbon economy will provide a significant opportunity to those bold enough to seize it. And it has the potential to be devastating to those who ignore the risk of climate change negatively impacting their assets.
Zizzo Strategy helps asset owners, builders and operators to both seize opportunities and mitigate risk. We know what renewable energy and energy efficient technologies are worth pursuing, and we know how to manage projects. We advise on global best practices in constructing low-carbon infrastructure such as the application of life cycle analysis and other assessment tools; and we can help ensure that vulnerable assets are identified and plans are put in place to mitigate risk.

Zizzo Strategy provides strategic advice to assist the YMCA of Greater Toronto in developing and implementing its climate sustainability vision.
