Event description
Measuring and Managing your Businesses Carbon Footprint

About this event

Ekos and the Wellington Chamber of Commerce invite you to attend this two-part workshop to help you begin your carbon management journey!

Lead the change! Join the businesses that are measuring, reducing and offsetting their carbon footprint in order to help Aotearoa New Zealand reach its goal of net Zero Carbon by 2050.

Consumers, staff, supply chain and government expectations around carbon emissions and carbon emission management are changing. The good news is that measuring your organisation’s carbon footprint is easier and more affordable than you think.

Initial presentation

Thursday 1 July

9.00am-10.30am

• A summary of the current condition of the climate

• The role of emissions reduction and offsetting in response to the climatic challenges we face

• An introduction to one way your business can respond to these climatic pressures

• The value of carbon footprint measurement, reduction and offsetting, both environmentally and for the sustainability of your organisation

• An introduction to the first steps in taking this action

Second workshop

Thursday 8 July

9.00am-11.30am

• Where does a business start with their emissions reduction journey?

• What does your carbon footprint look like and what emission reductions actions are available to your organisation?

• Introduction to forest carbon offsetting options

• The associated co-benefits of permanent indigenous forest carbon projects

• Introduction to other measurement options available

***Please note you will be required to bring your own laptop or device for the second workshop***

To get the most out of these sessions you will be asked to provide some carbon measurement data via the Ekos online tool. You will need to collect this data between the first and second sessions.

Ekos Bio

Ekos’ goal and purpose is to respond to the current climate emergency and to assist and enable other organisations and individuals to do the same. It does this by providing carbon emission management services to businesses, individuals and event holders in Aotearoa New Zealand and overseas. Its certifications cover the measurement, offsetting and reduction of carbon emissions.

Ekos’ offsetting services link businesses with regenerative forest carbon projects both locally and internationally.

Speaker Bios

Kent Barrett is one of the Carbon Dioxide Analysts at Ekos. He has over two years’ experience providing carbon footprint measurement, reduction and offsetting services to small, medium and large businesses. Being brought up rurally instilled a deep respect and appreciation for the natural environment, especially Aotearoa’s native forests. He chose to complete a double major in Law and Environmental Studies so he could do his best to protect and enhance the native forests we have left nationally and internationally, and hopefully assist in the establishment of new ones!

David Laing is the General Manager of Ekos. He also does the project management for the larger pieces of business that Ekos undertakes. This currently includes a carbon insetting project in New Zealand, and the coordination of consortium of organisations to deliver a community carbon forestry project in the Solomon Islands.

David has an MBA and over twenty five years of leadership experience. Amongst others, he has worked for a mining consultancy, a software vendor, and large technology service providers as well as CentrePort Wellington.
