Addressing GCC`s CO2 Reduction challenge - Top executives & Government officials share in upcoming Carbon World 2009 conference
The Carbon World Doha 2009 summit to be held on 27-28 April 2009, in Doha, Qatar, under the patronage of H.E. Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah, Deputy Premier, Minister for Energy & Industry and Chairman of Qatar Petroleum, will explore all the emerging opportunities in the global carbon market, and will also identify important regional and international initiatives to address the issue of CO2 emission reduction. Most importantly, the summit aims to provide the diverse carbon trading sector a platform to synthesize ideas and experiences.
