Happy New Year from Carbon Clear

Best Wishes from the team at Carbon Clear.  2010 was a good year for us, with new offices launching in Spain, Turkey and the United States.

As usual, we have worked to stay on the leading edge of carbon management best practice, and contributed to efforts to support the global transition to a low carbon economy. In addition to providing carbon footprint, CRC, and reduction advice and supporting carbon offset projects, in 2010 we:

  • contributed to the launch of the BSI specification on "carbon neutrality" (more on that in an upcoming post);
  • guided, via the General Policy Working Group, the first full compliance audit for members of the International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA);
  • became a Core Member of the Carbon Finance Working Group for the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves;
  • spoke and presented at a wide array of workshops and conferences around the world; and
  • did lots more that I'll probably recall on the way home tonight.
In addition, I volunteered to author two chapters ("Energy" and "Climate Change") in the forthcoming second edition of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) Practitioner's Handbook.

We expect 2011 to be at least as fruitful, and look forward to working with you.
