WEF Panelist Boasts of Individual Carbon Footprint Tracker

Alibaba Group president J. Michael Evans has revealed plans to bring about an individualized carbon footprint tracker.  

Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) which is currently being held in Davos Switzerland,  Evans said that the proposed tracking system would allow users to measure “their own carbon footprint”,  referring to how individuals using online services would be able to keep an eye on themselves by keeping records described by Evans as what “they consuming on the platform”. 


He continued by asking hypothetical questions users could ask themselves in order to monitor their activity saying “where are they traveling, how are they traveling” and  “what are they eating?”

Boasting of the potential of the proposed technology Evans urged those in attendance to “Stay tuned “ adding, “we don’t have it operational yet but this is what we’re working on”.

The World Economic Forum  describes itself as the ‘International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation whose leaders and representatives meet four times annually to discuss strategy for a wide number of issues.’ 

These exclusive meetings are held in strategic locations around the world including the current meeting being held in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland to ‘shape global, regional and industry agendas at the beginning of the calendar year.’

The Annual Meeting of the New Champions, the Forum’s annual meeting on innovation, science and technology, is held in China while the United Arab Emirates plays host to The Annual Meeting of the Global Future Councils, which  ‘brings together the world’s leading knowledge community to share insights on the major challenges facing the world today’.

The WEF’s fourth annual meeting is entitled ‘The Industry Strategy Meeting’ which it says ‘brings together Industry Strategy Officers to shape industry agendas and explore how industries can shift from managing change to pioneering change.’
