Brief Synopsis:
The Kyoto Protocol was the first step towards stabilizing global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). This runs out in 2012. The Copenhagen summit tried to extend this but failed. What impact has this on countries for introducing carbon regulation and what actions are required by companies striving to limit the enhanced greenhouse effect? This presentation details the impact of the Kyoto protocol and the failure of the Copenhagen summit in a number of areas of economics: i.e. financial markets, international trade, supply-chain management, cost analysis and financial reporting and assurance; as countries consider enacting carbon trading legislation. Many countries, business organizations and individuals appear to be woefully ill prepared to meet the challenges posed by the new paradigm of 'carbonomics'.
