London, UK - August 3, 2010 - Carbon Credited Farming PLC (CCF), The Green Energy Company, today announced the opening of its new office in Jakarta, Indonesia. The new office increases the company's current reach to support its rapid growth across Southeast Asia. CCF's Indonesian office will manage operations from The Energy Building, the country's most energy efficient building which aligns perfectly with the company's overall conservation goals.
Agus Sari is joining CCF as the Chief Executive of the Company's Conservation division, and he will be based in the new Indonesian office. He is strategically placed to oversee and coordinate CCF's conservation efforts within the South East Asia region. Agus comes to CCF with a strong background in environmental science and policy - most recently, he served as Country Director of Indonesia and Policy Coordinator for South East Asia at Eco-securities. He is also a Nonexecutive Director at PEACE, a private advisory company on sustainable development, a member of the Advisory Board of Sustainable Development Network and a member of the Board of EcoEquity, a U.S. environmental non-governmental organization. He also sits on several prestigious scientific and business committees, most notably the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
"I have followed the climate change issue since the late 1980s, and I am truly honored to be working for a company with a mission and a business model which I know has the ability to make a powerful impact," commented Agus. "I look forward to leading conservation efforts to make a difference - not only on the environment in this region, but on the global environment as a whole."
Spearheading the Indonesian office is Shaun D. Levine, Head of Operations, South East Asia. Prior to CCF, Shaun spent time serving as the Technical Advisor for Business Development and Operations at the Lippo Group in Jakarta. He brings over 10 years of expertise in international and media relations as well as Indonesian law, politics and economics to his new position at CCF.
"I am excited to have joined such a dynamic company that is providing renewable energy sources through a sustainable commercial framework that benefits the environment, the economy and the people of South East Asia," said Shaun. CCF has already established a strong business in the region, and I look forward to working more closely with local communities and government agencies to develop new joint ventures, generate revenues and create jobs, while working to reduce our environmental impact."
CCF focuses on the development of sustainable agroforestry operations with the focus on energy crops and lumber. CCF is also the administrator for the Global Conservation Standard which is designed to monitor, protect and enhance conservation areas and, in particular, forestry-based reserves through a valuation methodology consisting of existing carbon pools.
