Event Type

RESET Carbon presents, with Climate Change Business Forum (CCBF) and Business Environment Council, a seminar to explore the business case for Asian companies to apply latest international standards in carbon accounting and management.

In many markets, low-carbon is becoming synonymous to higher visibility and prerequisite for corporate credibility. Companies seeking to strategically reduce carbon need assurance that the market will understand and value their investment.  What standards should they adopt? What’s in it for companies in Asia? How difficult is the undertaking? What education do customers need, and how can this be distinguished from green-wash and mere marketing? And – how and when is commercial value captured?

Leading Asian carbon and energy management company RESET Carbon and two Hong Kong companies who have attained certified global carbon standards will be featured in the event to share insights on market trends, experience and learnings from implementation. Global printing company Leo Paper has adopted a life-cycle assessment standard (PAS 2050 Carbon Trust Carbon Reduction Label) for the carbon footprints of one of its products. Renowned paper merchant Polytrade has achieved premium carbon neutrality status for its corporate operations (PAS 2060).

Join us to find out what’s in it for your company. Admission free.
