Paradigm Shift: Moving Beyond Carbon Neutral to Carbon Healthy

B. McGann
TRIRIGA, US

Keywords: carbon healthy, environmental performance, green, legislation, carbon neutral

Abstract:

In this presentation TRIRIGA CEO George Ahn will discuss how, on the road to environmental sustainability, we need to rethink the “carbon neutrality” mantra and move beyond that to “carbon healthy.” We need to go on a diet – a carbon emissions diet – and it’s not enough for our planet to remain carbon neutral by buying carbon offsets. We need to reduce overall carbon emissions by putting infrastructures in place that accurately measure our current environmental footprint – our carbon health – and help us take steps to improve it.
