Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) launched its Public Private Partnerships Advancing Carbon Neutral Economy last March 22-23 in Chongqing and March 26-27 in Guangzhou through a Multi-Stakeholder Forum and Awareness Training.
ACE is an 18-month PPP Project co-financed by DEG and implemented by TUV NORD China and ASSIST that seeks to help reduce China’s carbon footprint.
TUV NORD’s Lead Auditor Li Yong Jun facilitated the Awareness Sessions along with ASSIST Projects and Grants Management Director Sathappan Sathappan, while TUV NORD’s CEO and Regional Manager for the Far East Paul van Bernkelen led the forum.
The events provided the attendees an overview of the project, including its rationale and the benefits to participating companies, and solicited their support and input in reducing China’s carbon emissions. Companies were likewise introduced to the International Standards and best practices such as ISO 50001 (Energy Management System), ISO 14064 (GHG Inventories), and PAS 2050 (GHG Assessment). #
