ABOUT THE CARBON TRUST
Created in 2001 to accelerate the UK’s transition to a low carbon economy, the Carbon Trust has developed into a global leader in low carbon strategies, carbon footprinting and low carbon technology development and deployment.
So far, our work has saved our clients USD 6 billion in energy costs and cut our customers' carbon emissions by 38 million tons.
The Carbon Trust created the world’s first product lifecycle carbon footprinting methodology with the PAS2050, and through Carbon Trust Investments Limited, the Carbon Trust has made early stage venture capital and seed investments in clean energy businesses in the UK.
The UK has some of the world’s most advanced climate change legislation, with the Climate Change Act 2008 (the world’s first long-term legally binding framework to tackle the dangers of climate change) and Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting (for companies listed on the main board of the London Stock Exchange, starting in April 2013).
Its work in China includes work for the British Embassy’s Strategic Prosperity Fund, under the auspices of China’s National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, examining the applicability of low carbon standards for products and companies in China, as well as other projects involving the transfer of UK know-how in energy efficiency and emission reduction to China, such as the offshore wind accelerator for China and the product carbon labelling scheme for Hong Kong in 2013.
