Ecosphere+, the positive impact company which is empowering global carbon emissions reductions, is delighted to announce its appointment as the official carbon offset partner for all 2018 Climate Action events.
Ecosphere+ enables businesses and individuals to take action on climate change by using climate finance to protect natural ecosystems and enhance sustainable economic development. It works with businesses to design solutions which integrate forest carbon into their strategies, reduce risk, meet environmental targets, engage stakeholders and offer products with a positive social and environmental impact.
In partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme, Climate Action provides a global media and events platform across which stakeholders can share knowledge, technologies and expertise, and identify innovative solutions to the challenges faced by climate change and a growing population.
This year, Ecosphere+ will partner with Climate Action to offset all direct carbon emissions from its 2018 events programme, namely:
Sustainable Investment Forum Europe 2018, Paris – 13th March
Sustainable Innovation in Sport 2018, Amsterdam – 2-3 May
Sustainable Investment Forum North America, NYC – 26th September
Sustainable Innovation Forum alongside COP24, Katowice, Poland – December 2018
Lisa Walker, CEO of Ecosphere+, said:
“By working with Ecosphere+ to rebalance the carbon emissions from its 2018 events, Climate Action is truly leading by example. We are proud to be partnering with an organisation that works so extensively with business, government and public bodies to accelerate sustainable development and advance the green economy.”
Nick Henry, CEO of Climate Action, said:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Ecosphere+ to offset the carbon impact of our 2018 events. Recent research has shown that forest and the land-use sector could deliver 37% of the emissions reductions required by 2030 to halt dangerous levels of global warming. Forest carbon is an effective means of achieving impactful climate action with a host of co-benefits to local communities, and we are looking forward to working with Ecosphere+ on supporting this cause.”
