Greener Together: New Technology for Reliable Carbon Accounting & Reduction

Date: October 12, 2023

Time: 9:30-11:30 a.m. DK/ 3:30-5:30 p.m. CN

Event: Supported Webinar


This webinar is part of the Greener Together: China-Nordic Dialogue on Carbon Neutrality campaign organised by the Danish Chamber of Commerce in China, FinnCham in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong, the Norwegian Business Association China, and supported by Danish-Chinese Business Forum.

This is where digital solutions shine, offering a lifeline to enterprises that aim to streamline and automate these processes.

This seminar will introduce the concept of Environmentally Extended Input-Output (EEIO). EEIO serving as an authoritative methodology to estimate and analyze emissions with heightened efficiency. By leveraging this approach, businesses can avoid the complications often associated with conventional carbon accounting standards.

Over the past few years, China has imposed some restrictions on cross-border data transfers. Like the European Commision, the Chinese regulators have recently issued a standard Contract for Personal Information Exports (the Chinese "SCCs"). Qualified companies will need to sign the SCCs, conduct an impact assessment, and file with the Chinese regulators by 30 November 2023. It is important for companies that operate in China to take compliance actions as soon as possible to avoid legal consequences. 

In this webinar, our speaker, Samuel Yang, Partner at AnJie Broad Law Firm, will introduce all that you need to know about the SCCs, including:

  • The Chinese cross-border data transfer legal regime: Samuel will introduce the basic legal framework for cross-border data transfers in China, which consists of three "legal paths". 
  • The SCCs as a legal path: Samuel will explain in detail about the conditions for using the SCCs, what the SCCs entail, and the procedures for the filing.
  • Challenges that lie ahead and how to address them: Samuel will then share his insight into the common problems that companies encounter during the filing process based on his rich practical experience.
  • Necessary steps: Samuel will finally break down the whole process into practical steps, so that companies can conduct the work in a structured manner.

For many businesses, the main hurdles lie in acquiring reliable and traceable data pertaining to their carbon emission activities. Traditional methods often fall short, making it a challenge, if not an impossibility, to obtain first-hand data for accurate calculation and thorough analysis. This is where digital solutions shine, offering a lifeline to enterprises that aim to streamline and automate these processes.

This seminar will introduce the concept of Environmentally Extended Input-Output (EEIO). EEIO serving as an authoritative methodology to estimate and analyze emissions with heightened efficiency. By leveraging this approach, businesses can avoid the complications often associated with conventional carbon accounting standards.

The seminar will delve deep into how new technology can help businesses to harness data for real-time identification of energy-saving opportunities and how to equip and empower your enterprise to make more informed, sustainable, and financially sound decisions regarding carbon management.

A New Path for Personal Information Exports in China - The Chinese "Standard Contractual Clauses"

Date: September 12, 2023

Event: Webinar


Click here to register (for DCBF, DCCC and DCCHK members only).

Over the past few years, China has imposed some restrictions on cross-border data transfers. Like the European Commision, the Chinese regulators have recently issued a standard Contract for Personal Information Exports (the Chinese "SCCs"). Qualified companies will need to sign the SCCs, conduct an impact assessment, and file with the Chinese regulators by 30 November 2023. It is important for companies that operate in China to take compliance actions as soon as possible to avoid legal consequences. 

In this webinar, our speaker, Samuel Yang, Partner at AnJie Broad Law Firm, will introduce all that you need to know about the SCCs, including:

  • The Chinese cross-border data transfer legal regime: Samuel will introduce the basic legal framework for cross-border data transfers in China, which consists of three "legal paths". 
  • The SCCs as a legal path: Samuel will explain in detail about the conditions for using the SCCs, what the SCCs entail, and the procedures for the filing.
  • Challenges that lie ahead and how to address them: Samuel will then share his insight into the common problems that companies encounter during the filing process based on his rich practical experience.
  • Necessary steps: Samuel will finally break down the whole process into practical steps, so that companies can conduct the work in a structured manner.
