Last chance before Copenhagen climate negotiations for industry and governments to meet
SINGAPORE, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Dr. Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the UN agency in charge of the Kyoto Protocol, has just confirmed that a representative from their Accreditation and Project Assessment unit will be meeting with carbon buyers and sellers in China, in a last chance for the industry to meet before the Copenhagen climate negotiations determine a successor to the current treaty expiring in 2012. Ms. Maria Laura Vinuela will be joining them at the World Carbon Conference in Beijing together with China’s NDRC Energy Research Institute, the European Commission, and likely representatives from the Indian negotiating team and the World Bank. Ms. Vinuela will be meeting with CEOs and Managing Directors from across the worldwide carbon finance industry to gain feedback on the project registration process and provide updates on the latest developments in the current carbon trading framework.

“Truly it is an honour that such high-level representatives from the public and private sectors are joining us for such a momentous event,” says Rex Ian Sayson, creator of highly successful energy industry events and director at the Singapore-based AMG Center for Energy Sustainability and Economics, which is hosting the meeting. “This is the last chance for industry and government to come together before Copenhagen and solve the current challenges in carbon trading, and engage key markets in China, India, Japan, Europe and the United States.”

Also joining the meeting are key industry players such as China carbon industry doyenne Victoria Wang, Garry Kolafa of the Kuwait Oil Company, Kisor Mukherjee and Gauri Bholay of Reliance Industries, Nor Hazleen Madros and Rozita Musib of Petronas, Jeff Huang, Assistant Chairman of the Tianjin Climate Exchange, Kenneth Wong and Xenos Hung of CLP Holdings (Hong Kong’s biggest power producer and one of the top investors into mainland China’s power industry), Junji Hatano, Kyoko Tochikawa and Coty Tsui of Carbon Partners Asiatica, among an estimated over 150 attendees total.

Media giants Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Platts and Asahi Shinbun will also be sending representatives to the event, along with 16 media and association partners that have joined the event including the European Chamber of Commerce in China.

The World Carbon Conference is the only international carbon industry meeting in China before the Copenhagen negotiations, providing a venue for project developers, carbon funds, government agencies, project owners, technology providers, law firms, investors, carbon compliance buyers, carbon exchange operators, DOEs and other stakeholders in emissions reduction to work out current challenges and build relationships for future projects. The conference will cover projects and opportunities in China, India, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and the rest of the world.
