WLPGA will promote the benefits of LP Gas at the UNFCCC COP16 Climate Change Conference in Cancun The World LP Gas Association, for the fourth time in a row, will represent the LP Gas industry at the COP16 Climate Change Conference. This year the conference is taking place in Cancun, Mexico. The WLPGA will be represented by First Vice-President Kimball Chen and WLPGA Deputy Managing Director Michael Kelly who will be promoting LP Gas benefits to a wide range of negotiators, environment, energy and business stakeholders. The Cancun conference is the most significant UN gathering of global stakeholders of climate change in 2010. The outcomes of the conference are of a great importance for the entire LP Gas industry, as it could lead to the creation of new opportunities for the industry. Mr Chen and Mr Kelly will advocate the social, economic and environmental benefits of LP Gas usage around the globe. LP Gas technologies – available and accessible worldwide – are helping to mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions immediately with no need for large investments in research and development or infrastructure. Mr Chen will speak at the WLPGA-sponsored World Climate Summit. The Summit will be a valuable opportunity for WLPGA to kickstart collaboration with businesses, investors and governments on implementing, scaling, financing, and replicating bottom-up solutions. Mr Chen and Mr Kelly will also take part in the Cancun Business Day, where WLPGA is a partner. The event, hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD) will gather leading representatives of governments and business, aiming to increase dialogue and action between both parties and within the global business community. The WLPGA information stand at the Cancun Business Day will present LP Gas benefits to a wide number of government officials, negotiators and business representatives.
