Joburg Climate Legacy



A carbon-neutral Summit.

The Summit will produce an estimated 500 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide, the gas that contributes towards global warming.

Most of it will be generated by you as participants, flying to Johannesburg while in South Africa.

We would like the Summit to be 'carbon neutral.' If you would like to offset the impact you make, you can invest in corporate or individual "Climate Legacy Certificates." A R100 or US$10 legacy certificate is worth about one ton of carbon.

Purchase your certificate at www.climatelegacy.org - and become part of the Johannesburg Climate Legacy (JCL) project. JCL is led by a South African association including, government, business and academia working in partnership with WBCSD, IIEC, Future Forests, KPMG, the Development Bank of Southern Africa, IUCN, and others.

The project aims to raise US$5 million. The funds will be used to support South African projects that permanently reduce carbon emissions. The aim is to invest in enough projects to offset the carbon emissions produced by the Summit.

You can use the website to calculate how much carbon you generate during the summit. A Summit Carbon Calculator will also show you how emissions from the Summit are being offset daily.

Your contribution will become part of an investment in energy-saving technology, helping replace 'dirty' fuel sources - helping improve the quality of life in poor communities in South Africa.
