On October 10th, ICROA Programme Director Simon Henry participated in a workshop organised by the Josoor Institute, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy and IETA Member Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD).
The Workshop provided decision makers with the background fundamentals of climate science, the importance of carbon neutrality and practical tools to achieve it.
Simon raised awareness, highlighted the various drivers & benefits of offsetting, and presented ICROA Members’ experience in providing carbon neutrality services for major sporting events, conferences and summits. Simon emphasized the leadership role of voluntary action as a way to increase global ambition under the Paris Agreement and the wish for IETA and ICROA to engage more actively in the MENA region. The presentation is available here and the GORD press release from the workshop can be accessed here.
