As of October 2015, Quercus Group joined the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), a global network of professionals, hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
For Quercus Group, the CTCN membership means being part of a global community of international member institutions that respond to worldwide requests for advice from developing countries. The main areas of support offered by the members include climate adaptation and mitigation solutions, capacity building and project implementation advice.
“We are extremely glad about the collaboration! Having access to such a wide network of change makers in relation to climate resilient development helps us continue growing globally and get inspired on the way. Actually, we have already met with another CTCN member based in Kenya and we talked about potential collaborations.” said Nicolai Sederberg Rottbøll, Quercus Group CEO and Founder.
Quercus Group contributes to the CTCN community with extensive experience in working with global projects, cluster development and presence on the Kenyan market. Members of the CTCN network form a big community of climate technology stakeholders from the different sectors - non-governmental, private, public sector as well as research entities. They promote environmentally sound services and technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development.
CTCN network aims to provide technical assistance for the climate adaptation and mitigation solutions for developing countries requests, by fostering collaboration among climate technology stakeholders. CTCN also aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, climate vulnerability, improve local innovation capacities and increase investments in climate technology projects.
