" We are looking forward to our Seoul event and have introduced new initiatives to complement the theme this year" said James Rockall, Managing Director of the WLPGA. "One of these is that the World LP Gas Association (WLPGA) will mitigate the carbon impact from the air travel of all Forum delegates through a partnership with 'Coolearth' - an organization that works to counteract climate change through the protection of endangered rain forest".
