In a meeting arranged by China Carbon Forum, Mr Chris Lenon hands the ICC’s “Environmental Taxation Principles” to Secretary General Zhao Xiaodi of ICC China’s National Committee, on the very day, those Principles were published worldwide. Secretary General Zhao thanked for the visit, recognised the importance of environmental taxes, promised to transmit the document to the CCOIC’s Environment and Energy Commission – and suggested that the topic might be discussed at the ICC G20 event planned for September in Beijing.
Prior to the meeting Mr Chris Lenon had luncheon in the three-century old “Serene Courtyard” residence with members of CCF discussing the significance and scope of the ICC “Environmental Taxation Principles” principles.
China Carbon Forum appreciates the link we have with the World Business Organization (our Chairman having a few functions in the ICC Paris secretariat), the more so since RIO+20 saw increased participation from the business side, and the G20 giving recognition to ICC’s role as the voice of business.
