3E Intelligence

[As you will have seen, there has been very little activity on this blog for a week. That’s because I was in Oakland, California working with the Global Footprint Network with whom I will be opening a new office in Brussels in the very near future. I am quite happy to be able to work with an organisation which I think has the potential to become one of the thought leaders on sustainability economics and the necessary transformation needed to end our ecological “overshoot“. More on these activities later]

One of the most interesting reports to come out last week was published by the UK’s Carbon Trust. In an excellent analysis of the impact of the EU’s emissions trading scheme on the competitive position of our European manufacturing industry, the Carbon Trust has concluded that the effects of the EU’s climate policy flagship on our industry are quite small, except for some sectors (cement, steel, glass, chemicals) which might need to be helped with some further free carbon allowances. On Wednesday 23 January, the European Commission will propose its ideas to broaden and strengthen the ETS from 2013.

    Can you guide me on how to trade in carbon credits or refer me to companies who would like to have carbon credits through Industrial Tree Plantations (ITPs) in the Philippines?

    Benefits that will be generated could be enjoyed by lots of people not only in the Philippines nor the Financiers of the ITPs also thru:

    1. GENERATED OXYGEN:

    Carbon Credits for the ITP Operators, the whole Global Communities thru bountiful OXYGEN freely produced by the trees in the ITP

    2. EMPLOYMENT:

    Much needed employment GENERATED by ITPs not only for the host country but the guest countries themselves thru added light & durable goods production for export.

    3. INCREASE TRADING and INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL PACKAGE GENERATIONS:

    ( Both Host & Guest’s) Governments could foster incentives for cross border trading between the two countries including a third country who is amenable to the trading programs generated among themselves.

    4. IMPROVED INTERNATIONAL UNDERSTANDING

    It will foster better understanding and improve the relationship between the people of both the Host & Guest Countries.
