Macro economic factors affecting Ctran Consulting <ul><li>The main focus of Ctran consulting is on climate change and CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) consulting. </li></ul><ul><li>But as a strategy, the company is diversifying its work and now focusing on sustainability solution rather than CDM advisory. </li></ul><ul><li>One of the major factors affecting the company’s performance is the CER ( Certified Emission Reduction) prices which depend on a number of short term and long term factors. </li></ul>

  8. 10. Macro economic factors affecting Ctran Consulting <ul><li>The price spread between pCERs (Primary CERs) and sCERs (Secondary CERs) keeps fluctuating depending upon market and social-economic condition. For example the recession caused an increase decrease in CER market of about 30%, but the sCER market grew 350%. </li></ul><ul><li>By nature the clients are diverse, so also their core business and the type of CERs. This is the reason why recession does not have such a huge impact as it had on other industries. </li></ul>
