“Climate neutral commodity”. This is the name of the label encouraging energy transition among traders and which was presented on Thursday in Geneva. This initiative, launched by two industry professionals, Paul Sébastien and Christophe Riedi, “offers a solution to calculate and offset the footprint of a commodity transaction”, according to a communicated.
“The label is independent, verified and audited,” underlines Paul Sébastien, who works in this context with groups such as SGS and KPMG and aims to reduce emissions from the sector in accordance with the Paris Agreement. “We have a vision, that of making the sector carbon neutral. There are other initiatives but they are not verified. We bring transparency and verification. ”
