The DAIC, CREAD and the Ministry of Finance will host a two-day conference showcasing the value of a low carbon economy to the private sector

The Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce (DAIC) in collaboration with the Climate Resilience Execution Agency for Dominica (CREAD) and the Ministry of Finance through the Green Climate Funds (GCF) is thrilled to announce the launch of a comprehensive two-day conference aimed at delving into the manifold advantages and opportunities offered by transitioning to a low-carbon economy.

Through engaging sessions, attendees will gain insights into:

– The economic opportunities and competitive advantages of adopting a low-carbon model
– Strategies for implementing sustainable practices within various industries
– Success stories and best practices from leading corporations driving the low carbon economy
– The role of technology and innovation in advancing sustainability initiatives
– Policy frameworks and collaborations fostering a conducive environment for a low-carbon economy

Key speakers include prominent figures and influencers, representing diverse sectors and expertise in sustainability, economics, technology, and corporate leadership.

“We are excited to host this significant gathering, uniting minds that share a common goal of steering Dominica’s economy towards a sustainable and low carbon future,” said Kerwin JnoBaptiste, Executive Director at DAIC. “This conference catalyzes driving collective action and accelerating the transition to a more environmentally responsible and economically viable business landscape.”

The conference aims to inspire, educate, and empower business leaders to embrace sustainability as a driver for innovation, growth, and a more resilient future.

    We first need a private economy, all new businesses and construction in Dominica is done by Government Ministers, Labour politicians, lawyers and Operatives so we have a privately government economy. These people are not business men but corrupt politicians with no innovative or intelligent plan or thought, all their simple business does is feeds of the government and fleece Dominicans.
