What Directors Need to Know

One of the Government's top priorities is legislating to combat 'climate change'. In December 2007 the Federal Labor Government ratified the Kyoto Protocol. Australian companies will notice that things will change rapidly from here on. At this presentation you will learn:

• what does ratifying the Kyoto Protocol mean for Australian companies
• how the Government's proposed Australian Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) i.e. an Emissions Trading Scheme, is likely to operate
• practical demonstration of the operation of 'carbon trading'
• obligations and opportunities of directors and companies in a new 'carbon economy'
• How would an ETS affect the economy
• What technologies can we expect to emerge in a carbon constrained economy
• A checklist for directors considering the risks and opportunities of a carbon conscious world
