Climate change is no longer a buzz word, it's a worldwide and daily reality we cannot ignore.

As one of the first firms to practice IP with Climate Change, Rouse is at the forefront of this emerging area.


Fabrice Mattei heads the firm's Climate Change practice. We have expertise in areas of carbon market and footprint, regulatory proceedings, grid interconnections, emissions trading schemes, renewable energy, energy efficiency and technology transfers to adapt or mitigate to climate change.

The long-awaited Rule Book of the PA will soon bring the agreement to further steps and may well mean additional significant compliance obligations on companies. We combine IP and Climate Change in developing and implementing branding and technology strategies for our clients around the world.
