The First Asia Carbon Footprint Network (ACFN) Meeting will be jointly organized by the Korean Environmental Industry and Technology Institute (KEITI) and UNESCAP East and North-East Asia (ENEA) Office on 30 - 31 October 2013 in Seoul. The Meeting will be held in conjunction with International Conference on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP), Asia Carbon Footprint Seminar, International Green Finance Seminar, and ECO-EXPO KOREA 2013.
ENEA Office and KEITI have jointly facilitated dialogues among agencies and experts in East Asia on the current status of carbon labeling programmes and potential areas of cooperation by holding seminars and workshops in 2011 and 2012. In particular, the workshop last year came to a general consensus on launching the Asia Carbon Footprint Network and its overall objectives and activities. The first ACFN Meeting scheduled on the 31st will serve as an important occasion for the members and associate members to discuss and decide specific programmes and operational modality of the Network.
