Los Angeles, California (September 19, 2007) –SGS Environmental Services has appointed John H. Bennett as director, Climate Change for North America. Mr Bennett will head an expansion of services to clients throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Mr. Bennett brings a wealth of experience to SGS, having provided environmental management and governmental affairs services to a wide range of clients.  Prior to establishing his own consulting company, Mr. Bennett was vice president, regulatory matters for California Portland Cement Company and was responsible for development, implementation and management of corporate-wide governmental affairs and regulatory compliance programs.  In addition, he has served as chairman of the California Cement Manufacturers Environmental Coalition and as an appointed member of the California Energy Commission’s Climate Change Advisory Committee.
The SGS Climate Change Program offers a range of services addressing the growing need for mandatory and voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. “The SGS Climate Change Program is expanding strongly in North America,” said Robert Dornau, Director, Climate Change Program. “Clients will benefit from our experience as a leading verifier under the California Climate Action Registry and the verification of hundreds of company inventories under the European Union emissions trading scheme.” Mr. Bennett commented “Companies’ GHG emissions and emission reductions matter to us and our future; I am looking forward to working with SGS in North America in helping early movers in this market. SGS verification underpins the environmental integrity of their actions and accuracy of their emissions data.”
