Carbon Expo Australasia will bring together Australian and international businesses to network and debate the latest information on carbon reduction initiatives.

The 2012 event will combine a carbon market trade fair with a conference of keynote plenary and panel presentations, as well as a series of technical workshops.

Carbon Trade Exchange, a global electronic exchange for the buying and selling of carbon credits, is a platinum sponsor and exhibitor at this year’s event, and its support means that for the first time, Carbon Expo will be opening its doors to the business community free of charge.

“With many parts of the business community still hesitant to embrace the concept of carbon reduction due to lack of knowledge, it’s fantastic to be able to offer this kind of enticement to hopefully encourage people to visit the expo to find out how to increase their company’s efficiency, bottom line and profit in a low carbon economy,” Carbon Trade Exchange Chief Executive Wayne Sharpe says.
