WELCOME ADDRESS
“Join Us to Save Our Only Home”
Mr. Swarup Roy, Founder and CEO of Asean Affairs


          Your Excellencies, YB Dato’ Sri Peter Chin, Minister of Energy, Green Technology & Water of Malaysia; YB Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, MP Advisor & Patron, the Malaysia-Europe Forum (MEF) and former Minister of International Trade & Industry, Malaysia; and H.E. Vincent Piket, Ambassador & Head of Delegation, The Delegation of the European Union to Malaysia.

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, partners, colleagues and friends, welcome to the Asean Affairs Business Council’s third Save Our Planet Conference - Malaysia.

I thank their Excellencies for their support in the cause of saving the planet and agreeing to speak at this event today in spite of their busy schedules.

I launched the Save Our Plant Forums in the beginning of this year in response to the failure of the Copenhagen Climate summit of Dec 2009. With the intense interest in the “green technologies” of the near future and our world’s obsession with carbon-based fuels, these series of conferences have been created to debate Climate Change and what Asean can do to prevent and mitigate this vital challenge of our times. The conferences started in March 2010 in Bangkok and continue in Malaysia, Singapore, India, Vietnam and China, culminating in a mega conference in 2011 in New York City.

The Concept
It is now apparent to many that the task of implementing measures to combat climate deterioration falls on the private sector, including companies and individuals. To accomplish this, shared solutions need to be produced. The goal of the Save Our Planet conferences is to develop and define these practical solutions.

Speakers and Participants
Among the speakers and participants that have appeared at the Save Our Planet conferences have been Dr. Michael Nobel of the Nobel Charitable Trust; Dr. Hanns Schumacher, German Ambassador to Thailand, Dominikus von Pescatore of Bayer; David Oberhuber from German Technical Cooperation; Tony Novak of Emerson, Sumit Phokrel of the Asian Development Bank; and Shayne Heffernan from Ebeling Heffernan. Some of them have joined us as speakers and supporters here today in SOP-Malaysia. I thank them for their support for the SOP series across Asia.

Corporate partners
The Save Our Planet forums have attracted a wide range of partners including Bayer, Biersdorf, Ebeling Heffernan, Emerson, PTT Public Company - Thailand, the German government through its local embassies, and the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ). Additionally, potential partners looking to support the Save Our Planet initiative are the US$29 billion dollar Birla Group, the French energy giant US$110 billion GDF Suez Group, the Hinduja Foundation of Switzerland and London, and the heads of state of Asean and European countries...................
