ABOUT


Enterprise Asia’s Carbon Champion program is an independent, third-party endorsement and authentication of low carbon and decarbonisation efforts of organisations globally.

The program covers energy and emission reduction, environmental harm reduction, carbon pricing and financing and climate change support.

Through this independent endorsement and authentication, organisations will be better able to plan their innovation and investments into low carbon programs, fast track their growth into the circular economy, build strong, bold partnerships with other Carbon Champions, and actively position themselves to customers, shareholders, investors and their local community as a key participant in the global climate change initiative.
