The PGCARBONO meeting offets its impact.
The Ministry of Environment has identified that the link and partnership between public and private sector are key when it comes to look for cost effective alternatives for greenhouse gas mitigation in the country. That is why the Climate Change Office is responsible for the design, implementation and administration of the Carbon Management National Program (PGCARBONO) in order to support and encourage volunteer management and quantification of greenhouse gas emissions at a corporate level, whether in the public and/or private sector. The Office provides appropriate tools for calculating the corporate carbon footprint, standardized formats for reporting, assistance in designing mitigation plans and ongoing monitoring.
On November 7th, the launch of the Carbon Management National Programme was conducted with the aim of spreading the initiave to organizations (especially privates) that currently report their emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) or are addressing somehow the topic of climate change.
