From our Tumblr feed: Demographic information about our world population.
Addressing the population and resources constraints, Green Drinks March presents a talk you don’t want to miss. This month, we aim to bring together people who believes that through earnest planning, design ingenuity and innovation, we could achieve a sustainable environment for growth and progress especially in Singapore. We are very honoured to have speakers:
Greenscore is a Product Carbon Footprint Programme based around ISO14067.(Carbon footprint of products – Requirements and guidelines for quantification and communication). This is a new standard currently in draft form and due for publication in 2014.
Greenscore offers a step by step scientific approach that allows product producers to review findings on a regular basis, and decide at what point the programme delivers what they, or their clients require.
In other words, we make Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) less daunting, customisable and cost effective. Get in touch to find out more.
With overwhelming evidence of increased demand from purchasers for product environmental transparency, producers need to have evidence of credible data on Product Life Cycle Inventories and the environmental impact generated from a product during its useful life.
Until now these requests have been daunting for most producers.
Instep has developed a cost effective, scientific programme which allows you to be in the position to meet these important environmental expectations when purchasers are considering their preferred supply chain partners.

We look forward to continuing the push sustainability in events management, and spreading awareness about carbon conservation. Watch this space, we’ve got more news on this front coming up!
Increasingly, organisations are required to report their sustainability efforts. Increasingly as well, many (in Singapore) see that there is a benefit to moving past traditional CSR type non-financial metrics to include measures of material use, water consumption and carbon footprint.
Carbon is increasingly an important aspect of these trends in sustainability reporting, due to the urgent global attention to climate change. Relating back to sustainability reporting, it is for example, one of the items within the Global Reporting Initiative framework, and increasingly, “Green” Certifications are stipulating a requirement or advocating that companies measure their GHG emissions.
