Economy of Love now is member of IETA
The EoL that is under and issued by the Egyptian Biodynamic Association(EBDA) has the pleasure to announce that it has become a member of the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA). The IETA is a non-profit business organization created in June 1999 to establish a functional international framework for trading in greenhouse gas emission reductions. IETA membership includes leading international companies from across the carbon trading cycle. IETA members seek to develop an emissions trading regime that results in real and verifiable greenhouse gas emission reductions, while balancing economic efficiency with environmental integrity and social equity. And that’s why it was a big pleasure to join them. As a member of IETA, the EoL and EBDA will actively contribute to global efforts in combatting climate change, fostering sustainable practices, and promoting a greener, more sustainable future for our planet.
