Green Economy Roadmap, a report by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC 2012), outlines a framework for International collaboration in establishment of clean energy from renewable and green resources stressing on consistency with international trade rules and so on promotion of technology transfer. This framework is an underlying strategic intent for us in times of international trade and technology transfer. This framework is built upon three pillars: economic innovation, social innovation and environmental innovation with a mutually reinforcing and cross-cutting elements comprising of integrated environmental, social and economic policy and decision-making.
The Royal Institute of International Affairs’ Sustainable Development Programme (Wilkins 2002) elaborates fundamental positive roles that technology transfer of renewable energies plays in different social aspects i.e. poverty alleviation, education and equality for women, health improvement and national strategies for sustainable development. Respectively our perspective is bound to improve the wellbeing amongst cultures and societies worldwide.
Successful technology transfer requires attention to a number of different aspects: affordability, accessibility, sustainability, relevance and acceptability (Wilkins 2002). Besides market audit is a fundamental tool for new international establishment. This comprises of a systematic examination of the business’s environment, objectives, strategies and activities, with perspective to identifying key strategic issues, problems and opportunities. (Jobber 2007) These initiatives are integral to our corporate strategy at time of global technology transfer and international trade.
Compliance with ISO frameworks helps us to solidify our global presence in environmental management and energy management systems markets. A few standards within this range help us to achieve the desired level of competence in most circumstances however our reference to ISO standards is not limited to these: ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) – ISO 50001 (Energy Management Systems) and ISO 10012 (Measurement Management Systems).
Regional third party standardisation and regulatory bodies in building industry play indicative roles in improvement and implementation of environmental and energy management systems. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), a third party verification body of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and the BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREAM) by the Building Research Establishment Group (BRE) based in the UK, are amongst global players. Few of other globally acclaimed parties are Green Star founded and based in Australia and Energy Performance in Buildings Directive within the EU. And finally International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) is another international measurement and verification framework by Efficiency Valuation Organisation. These regulations and standards will be factored in every detail of our project management operations forming tailored solutions for implementation and delivery of high-end products to customers in different geographical areas.
From commercial point of view we extensively adhere to International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) terms and conditions: for trade initiative we act in full accordance with Incoterms 2000 criteria and for international contracts we broadly adapt ICC contract models with modifications to suit global parties.
