BSI Carbon Neutrality & PAS 2060 Conference & Workshop
CBI Conference Centre, London
- Workshop: Tuesday 18 May 2010
- Conference: Wednesday 19 May 2010
With consumer preferences shifting towards greener products and services, there is a clear need for businesses of all sizes to demonstrate their commitment to carbon neutrality. However, due to a lack of common definition and recognized method of verification, there have been inconsistencies in how the term is used, resulting in a growing cynicism about corporate declarations of carbon neutrality.
BSI’s inaugural Carbon Neutrality Conference will show how a standardized approach can be used to become carbon neutral or develop carbon neutral products and services. There will be a detailed explanation of the new
Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 2060, which lays out the requirements for demonstrating carbon neutrality.
A series of case studies will show how major brands (including Parcelforce, Ben & Jerry’s and Kingsmill) are taking a standardized approach to reducing their carbon output. Dimple Tailor of BSI Conferences believes that attendees will find these case studies particularly useful: 'The prospect of becoming carbon neutral can seem quite daunting, especially among smaller businesses. Hearing success stories from such a wide range of industries will hopefully bolster their resolve and equip them with the ideas to develop their own carbon reduction plans.’
Key speakers include:
> David Kennedy,The Committee on Climate Change
> Ant Wilson,AECOM
> Tirma Garcia-Suarez,Unilever
> Jonathan Shopley,International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance (ICROA)
> Jamal Gore,Carbon Clear
Karen Fisher, Senior Consultant atERM, will deliver a pre-conference workshop on Tuesday 18 May. Attendees of the workshop will discover how carbon footprint information can be calculated and communicated effectively using existing standards, such as PAS 2050.
