Services and experience

Services provided:

At MWH we understand carbon policy, carbon accounting and carbon reporting, and have extensive global experience providing carbon management services to the agriculture, water, energy, forestry, infrastructure and government sectors.

We have a multi-disciplined team of agricultural, ecology and natural resource specialists with expertise in forestry, farm, land and fire management. Our team includes an Indigenous heritage advisor who is highly experienced in consulting with traditional owners.

Our team has professional experience ranging from 9 to over 30 years and undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in Environmental Science, Forestry, Environmental Engineering, Business Management, Archaeology and Science.

The group has extensive Australian and international experience in the science, systems and management of carbon accounting and project development in the land sector. We have undertaken feasibility assessment for carbon abatement projects in Australian forestry and agribusiness sectors, including preparing emissions abatement studies, species selection for forestry projects, project monitoring plans and field based carbon abatement measurement programs.

We have provided advice and training to private sector and government clients on carbon markets, carbon mitigation and abatement schemes. At a policy level, MWH specialist Dr Peter Moore is currently supporting the implementation of the national System for Land-based Emissions Estimation for Kenya. Dr Moore is providing technical and process advice and support to the Australian Government's International Forest Carbon Initiative to use Australia's National Carbon Accounting System as a starting point for global forest carbon monitoring.

We also have a specialised team offering services in agriculture and food production. This group of technical and management specialists supports clients through all aspects of food value chains including policy, investment, farming production, sustainable practices and continuous business improvement. MWH is currently providing specialist project design and livestock waste management advice to a World Bank/FAO project in China to improve livestock waste management on dairy and beef farms.
