Global GreenTag International will be presenting Jonas Bengtsson, CEO and Co-Founder of the science based sustainability consultancy Edge Environment on Wednesday, September 22 for its monthly Conversations Series. This month we have invited Jonas to explore with us the topic of carbon and how to more effectively manage the carbon footprints on construction projects.
Jonas who has a MSc in Physics specialising in problem solving, a Diploma in Psychology from Gothenburg University and a Master of Environmental Management from UNSW has a passion and curiosity for sustainable development and market change. He believes that there is a long way to go before we can work effectively across supply chains and organisations to establish a sustainable existence. However, Jonas also sees opportunities to engage and unleash a global resource of entrepreneurship, creativity and productivity that can transform our society to the kind of world that we really want within our lifetime – where unsustainable is unthinkable.
For this session with Global GreenTag International, Jonas will be providing his perspective on why carbon is important and will be discussing solutions to get out of the mess that mismanagement of carbon has created for the environment through the impacts of climate change. The event will cover:
* What is Carbon?
* How do we work with Carbon? Can we?
* The role of LCA (Life Cycle Assesment) and EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations)
* Rating Tools & Carbon
* Future trends – predictions for LCA and EPDs
PLEASE REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT
