Special Report: Carbon Forum Asia to be organized in Bangkok


The Carbon Forum Asia 2012, the Asia-Pacific region’s leading platform for carbon and energy market, is set to be held in Bangkok in late October. The forum aims to boost carbon trade in Asia as the business in the region is growing. 

Following the 6-year annual editions in Singapore, the Carbon Forum Asia 2012 has shifted the regional attention to Thailand for the first time. The two-day conference and carbon trade fair will provide a place where ideas are exchanged and opportunities abound for local and foreign investors.

According to Mr. Dirk Forrister, President and CEO of the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), co-organizer of the forum, representatives from more than 50 countries are expected to participate in the event, ranging from in-depth talks, updates on the international trends, and addresses on challenges faced by the industry. Successful carbon emission reduction projects from around the world will also be showcased.

The current carbon situation in Asia has seen some progress as countries like Japan, China and India are taking a serious look at energy efficiency and low carbon technology.

The forum will serve as a place where leading experts establish trends and policies that will define the climate change agenda for Asia and beyond.

It will be held at Centara Grand Hotel and Bangkok Convention Center at Central World on October 30th – 31st this year. For admission fees and further information, please visit www.carbonforumasia.com.
