CRX CarbonBank Official Launch, 7 Dec 2015, Paris COP21/SIF15

#COP21 and #SIF15 sees the official launch of CRX CarbonBank on Dec 7-8 in Stad De France – Paris. CEO Vinod Kesava, delivers a speech on driving a global economy of resilience and self-reliance. Within a week of the launch, there is a surge of carbon offsets on the platform. This rises to 300 million tons and a near-exponential increase in buyer members. We expect this to be a predictor for renewed price discovery in the emission reductions markets. We say: do away with permits to pollute; increase the number of projects that actually reduce emissions.

“CEO Vinod Kesava participates at this workshop that is organized by SEAS and ADB and supported by IE Singapore. The focus of the 5-day workshop, (July 27 – 31 2015) endows the delegates, (represented by various APAC countries), with various tools to establish better methodologies in implementing sustainable economic growth through the strategic resources such as energy and water. It is envisaged by the organisers, supporters and sponsors alike, that this workshop achieves an objective of dealing with issues of climate change by ensuring that policies of energy efficiency, renewable sources and access to electricity and clean water (resources) be achieved.

On the first day, Vinod presents the case for thinking holistically through the Integrative Design Process. This necessitates the meeting of minds and the collaboration of ideas with various governance disciplines of implementing policies, with the various delegates respective countries with their unique considerations. Even so, through the principles of the Blue Economy, even waste can be treated as a socio-economic resource. The end goal is to ensure collaboration as a single global community. Let us ensure that we create the correct performance metrics for them to use and develop for future generations.
