The Cooler Earth 2020:

Recovery, Resilience, Responsibility 

Humanity is at a crossroads. With the unprecedented global climate emergency, we are seeing tipping points with social and environmental upheaval in countries worldwide. The conversation around social inequalities and injustice has risen to the fore. The unprecedented pandemic has put us through a stress test of a world impacted by various environmental and social risks. We can neither live in denial nor ignore the need for urgent action. The new normal is all about Recovery, Resilience, and Responsibility. Only sustainable businesses and communities can emerge stronger and better prepared for future challenges.

Carbon Offsets

The carbon emissions from The Cooler Earth 2020 are expected to be minimal, as we are predominantly using online webinars. Nevertheless, we would encourage each conference participant to offset at least 1 tonne of CO2 at the following sites, to offset their carbon contribution to this conference, and more. 

 

This year, we are inviting participants to offset their carbon footprint via the following verified carbon offset projects. Please email your offset receipt (including your name and organisation) to thecoolerearth@cimb.com in order to be listed on the Cooler Earth website. 

Katingan Mentaya Project, Kalimantan, Indonesia

 

The Katingan Mentaya Project (KMP) covers 149,800 hectares of carbon rich peatland forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Through the protection and restoration of this unique ecosystem, KMP pursues three core goals. First, by ensuring the area’s vast stores of carbon remain locked in the biomass and not released into the atmosphere as CO2, the project is making a significant contribution to addressing the global climate emergency. Second, protection of the peat swamp forests safeguards a rich biodiverse habitat, one that is home to many high conservation value species, including the Bornean orangutan and Proboscis monkey, which are both critically endangered.Third, through a variety of socio-economic activities, KMP is working to significantly improve the well-being and the sustainable economic prospects of 43,000 people, living in 34 village communities along the edges of the forest site. 

 

Permian Global, the project proponent, is a mission-led business that is working for the protection and recovery of tropical forests. By developing large-scale tropical forest protection and restoration projects, our company aims to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, protect habitats to safeguard biodiversity and support sustainable local economies and wellbeing.

Siam Solar Energy, Central Thailand

Thailand is one of the largest energy consumers in Southeast Asia and the region’s second largest oil importer, with fossil fuels currently meeting around 80% of total energy demand. The Thai Government is looking to tackle national dependence on fossil fuels and help pioneer Southeast Asia’s renewable energy sector. With solar poised to play a crucial role in Thailand’s clean energy transition, the Siam Solar project helping turn ambition into action. The project uses solar PV systems, a cutting-edge, environmentally-sound technology and groups 10 solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants across central Thailand to deliver clean energy to the national grid.
