…UK businesses set to embrace innovative low carbon solutions…

Wednesday 16th September 2009 - Greenstone Carbon Management, the global specialist carbon solutions company, has announced that Ram Ramachander, Chief Operating Officer at Greenstone Carbon Management will present at the Carbon 2009 Show on Tuesday 29 September 2009 at 4.15pm GMT. In the Plenary session “Low Carbon Business Opportunities”, Ramachander will detail the range of issues facing UK business in terms of reducing carbon emissions and reveal the types of organisations that are leading the drive to effectively measure and manage their carbon. The plenary session will be chaired by Michael Ward, Director Low Carbon of UK Trade & Investment and guest speakers will also include Bruce Duguid, Head of Investor Engagement, Carbon Trust; Mike Short, Vice-President R&D, O2-Telefonica and Vicky Elliot, Head, Climate Change Projects Office.

The Carbon 2009 Show is the first ever international exhibition dedicated to carbon, covering everything from carbon consulting, to carbon audits to low carbon solutions for businesses. It will be held at London's ExCeL centre on the 29th -30th September 2009. The two day event will deliver the information and resources needed to help organisations succeed in the new low carbon economy. It also offers participants the opportunity to network and discuss the new post-Kyoto climate deal with industry leaders in advance of the crucial Copenhagen summit in December 2009.

The UK Trade & Investment-sponsored plenary session will specifically highlight the international business opportunities emerging across all sectors of the economy as key global markets transition to a low carbon future. UK Trade & Investment helps British companies to identify and benefit from these opportunities, and promotes the UK’s status as a global hub for low carbon solutions.

The panel of industry experts will also explore how domestic government policy will drive innovation and expertise – while creating new products and services – and how the UK can develop its position as a global low carbon trading partner.

Ramachander comments: “Government schemes, like the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), are putting carbon on the boardroom agenda, where effective decision making requires solid metrics and a clearer understanding of carbon throughout the supply chain. Businesses that are able to measure and manage their carbon effectively will have a competitive advantage over those that don’t.”
