Alexander Ballard Ltd.

ABL help their clients develop their capacity to respond to climate change. One of their biggest assets is the Performance Acceleration through Capacity-building Tool (PACT) framework, which assesses how well an organisation is responding to climate change issues.


Alexander Ballard Ltd. ceased trading in 2013. 

Since 2013 PACT has been rebranded as Climate Capacity Diagnosis & Development.  The CaDD service has been provided and developed by Climate Sense and Trioss. New developments have predominantly been in 2 key areas:

  1. Identifying systemic interdependencies more effectively to identify “hot spots” where capacity development will have greatest impact (higher capacity isn’t needed everywhere all of the time).
  2. Gaining a deeper understanding and capturing new behaviours that are emerging, particularly from high capacity organisations that are innovating and mainstreaming new practice.



Module: PACT

The PACT tool gives organisations a detailed analysis of their capacity to take climate resilient decisions as well as guidance on their optimum next steps to improve that capacity.
