Today climate change dominates the agenda of governments and businesses across the globe. In the recent meeting of the G8+G5 states, in Italy, the leaders have agreed to work towards an emission reduction target of 80% by 2050. The commitment towards containing climate change is strongly reflected in the growth of the carbon markets that were valued at USD 125 billion at the end of 2008, almost double their value over 2007.

Singapore formally acceded to the Kyoto Protocol in 2006 enabling both the government and the private sector to participate in its market based-mechanisms. The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) under the Kyoto Protocol provides both host countries and its partner(s) with opportunities for significant greenhouse gas emission reductions as well as sustainable development.

On 1st Dec 2009, delegates from 170 countries will gather in Copenhagen for the last, before the climate agreement needs to be renewed. In the midst of the uncertainties and trend change within the carbon market, several other project opportunities and initiatives have emerged on a competitive level of sustainable development as compared to the approved UN projects. The voluntary market has been a major highlight where it has reached a value of $ 700 million for the year 2008. It has created a different perspective in terms of technology transfer, value of the carbon credits & standardization. As for Singapore, energy efficiency type projects, in Buildings, Transportation and Manufacturing space - have been attracting much attention and headlines.

This training course will enable you to understand the working of global carbon market and implement energy efficiency projects with carbon benefits in Singapore & South East Asia.
