COP17 – Climate Change Response (CCR) Expo

On 29 November 2011, in Uncategorized, by Andrew Bennett

The National Department of Environmental Affairs is organizing a spectacular expo as part of COP17 / CMP7 to bring to life a tangible way in which South Africa and other countries should be responding to climate change adaptation and mitigation. Apart from the riveting array of exhibitions and side-events, the way in which the Climate Change Response Expo (CCR Expo) has been organized showcases a variety of sustainable options to consider in an event of this nature.  COP17 / CMP7 aims to be a low carbon event based on sound event greening principles. CCR Expo – Greening Overview

Greening Guidelines and Responsible Exhibitor Charter:

Event greening principles were included into the planning and preparation of the expo right from the start.  This influenced the design of the expo, the procurement of goods and services, resource management and leaving a positive legacy.  A responsible exhibitor charter was compiled, which exhibitors had to sign together with their formal contract.  This underpins the intention to ensure that the expo does not just showcase greening, but is implemented in a responsible manner with a focus on long-term sustainability.

We encourage everybody at COP17, as well as the public, to visit the CCR Expo.

Located within 300m of the ICC and adjacent to the UN FCCC precinct, the Climate Change Response Expo is open to both delegates and the public.

Dates:             28 November to 9 December 2011.

Cost:                Free of charge

Opening times:

Mon – Thurs: 10h00 – 18h00

Fri – Sat: 10h00 – 20h00

        Centrum Car Park, Bram Fischer Road, Durban.
