Neal Dikeman, Panelist

Greentech Media and Groom Energy have partnered to create a critical new symposium series, Enterprise Carbon Accounting. Building on the success of Groom Energy’s previous seminar held in Boston February 25 this year, this event will answer the major questions facing large corporations and institutions today around carbon accounting.

  • Who cares about climate change besides environmentalists? Investors. The Groom Seminar, Enterprise Carbon Accounting assembled chief sustainability officers and policy-makers to explain financial and regulatory risks if a cap-and-trade system is adopted to constrain carbon emissions. Corporations that do not know their carbon footprint may find themselves under-informed in strategic energy planning, procurement and product mix. Joseph Hall, Lead Technical Support Consultant, National Grid U.S.
  • It was great to be part of your seminar. By far the most useful such gathering I’ve attended in quite a while.Wood Turner, Executive Director, Climate Counts
  • The program was very well done – an excellent group of speakers and good interaction. Carolyn Kaplan, Counsel and Chief Sustainability Officer, Nixon Peabody
  • The seminar was great, and we derived tremendous value from it. Please keep us in mind for future events. Nick Balster, Program Manager, Precision Castparts Corporation
  • The event was very valuable, particularly around providing various perspectives including what is happening at a ‘policy’ level and at a company level, and providing a useful networking opportunity. Stathis Gould, International Federation of Accountants

Greentech Media and Groom Energy have partnered to create a critical new symposium series, Enterprise Carbon Accounting. Building on the success of Groom Energy’s previous seminar held in Boston February 25 this year, this event will answer the major questions facing large corporations and institutions today around carbon accounting, including:

  • Will my organization face Greenhouse Gas (GHG) regulation? Will cap-and-trade legislation pass this year?
  • Will large firms like Walmart influence emerging standards for scope 3 and product-level carbon accounting?
  • How should my organization manage pressure from stakeholders and emerging green rating systems?
  • Should carbon accounting be tied into financial accounting?
  • What lessons can we learn from the early leaders in this space?
  • What tools and technologies are available for corporations that want to operate effective carbon management programs?

This event brings together top-level speakers from major corporations and policy organizations to share their experiences with enterprise carbon accounting and the ongoing development of greenhouse gas regulation. The inaugural event drew representatives from major corporations and the accounting, legal, software, venture capital, risk management, and utility industries. As is typical with Greentech Media events, Enterprise Carbon Accounting will offer attendees much more than vendor-driven marketing or simplistic high-level perspectives, providing them with actionable market insights, data, and education on topics critical to their business success.
