Commodities People partners MICEcarbon to offset event emissions

This ie one way how responsible event organisers can enable climate action

Commodities People has collaborated with MICEcarbon for Commodity Trading Week APAC, an inaugural event happening at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Singapore, from January 24-25, 2024.

Commodities People will be supporting two verified carbon-offset projects for this event. These are the High Impact Cookstoves in Malawi by Ripple Africa, a project focused on reducing emissions and improving living conditions in Malawi; and the Avoided Conversion Cerrado, an initiative to prevent deforestation and preserve biodiversity in the Cerrado region, Brazil.

As a further benefit and incentive, event attendees offsetting their travel emissions through these projects stand a chance to enjoy event premiums through selected partners.

Ben Hillary, managing director of Commodities People, said in a press release: “This collaboration shows our commitment to environmental responsibility by making the event carbon-neutral, with calculable Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions generated by this event offset through MICEcarbon’s verified projects. At the same time, we’re pleased to offer our attendees a means of offsetting their travel-related emissions through selected verified carbon-offset projects.”

Daniel Chua, founding partner of MICEcarbon, added: “Off-setting the event’s carbon emissions via verified projects with many co-benefits in addition to the carbon offsets is proactively responsible. At the same time it sends a positive message to event attendees that it is possible to factor in the mitigation of environmental impact as a business consideration, and to inspire them to action in their own arenas.”
