Company Presentation

Kamil Dursun Consulting Company (The Company) was established in October 2004 by Kamil Dursun.

The business idea of The Company is:

·         Management of international environmental projects.

·         Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency (CPEE).

·         Development of Total Management Systems (TMS) of industrial companies with emphasis on Environmental and Quality Management Systems (EMS, QMS).

·         Developing projects which require financial engineering.

·         Consultation in management of Small and Medium Enterprises.

The Company is a one-person company with relations to external partners where project groups are formed depending on the job. This approach gives the necessary flexibility to The Company’s development, at the same time ensuring the competence to achieve best possible results.

The main asset of the company is the 20-years’ industrial and 4-years’ CPEE / EMS experience of Kamil Dursun, both in and outside Norway (see CV).

The references of The Company so far are (after establishment in October 2004):

1.      Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency (CPEE) in Azerbaijan: Long term capacity building programme to raise awareness on environmental issues in Azerbaijan. The programme is developed as joint capacity building and project development programme. The project manager is Tekna, the Norwegian Society of Chartered Technical and Scientific Professionals (www.tekna.no). The long term programme started in 2002 and is envisaged to last for five or six years.

As a part of the programme, a CPEE centre is established (www.cpee.az). This centre is the focal point of the activities in Azerbaijan. Until now, several training programmes have been completed in Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency in industry. One training programme in Energy Efficiency in municipal building sector has been completed last year.

A Revolving Fund is established from which project owners can borrow money with soft conditions to realise their projects.

Several energy and environmental saving measures have been implemented as a result of these training programmes.

Alternative energy projects have been implemented to make use of solar and wind energy for irrigation and water heating with the help of simple technologies.

The CPEE centre was, in the beginning 100% financed by the Norwegian programme. Now they have signed several contracts with local customers and the self-financing degree is increasing.

2.      Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency in Romania: The Norwegian Ministry of Environment is supporting a 6 months’ training programme of CPEE in Romania. The project was approved fall 2004. The work started in February 2005 and will complete in June 2005. The project manager is Tekna. Responsible to carry out the programme in whole is Kamil Dursun Consulting.

8 Romanian companies participate in the programme with 20 persons. The participants are mostly heavy-industrial companies. Results of the programme will be reported in June/July.

3.      Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency in Tajikistan: The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed its intention to start up a long term capacity building programme in Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency in Tajikistan. A pre-project to study the country has been approved and will be realised during the second half of 2005. Depending on the results of the pre-project, a long term programme will be started.

The industrial, state and municipal sectors will be mapped during the pre project. The emphasis will be on CPEE in industry, EE in municipal buildings and small hydropower stations.

The long term programme is expected to start later in 2005.

A similar development as in Azerbaijan is expected in Tajikistan within a 4-5 year period.

4.      Development of small hydropower stations in Armenia: Project proposed to the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with “Stiftelsen Vekst” (www.vekst.no). Stiftelsen Vekst is a Norwegian foundation which has experience in developing energy efficiency projects. The main technical know-how of Vekst is in building sector and bio-gas development. They have mainly been active in Belarus and Armenia. The proposed project will help Armenian authorities develop their rich hydropower resources introducing Norwegian know-how and financing possibilities.

Application is sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway. Approval is pending.

5.      Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency in Armenia: Project proposed to run a CPEE project in cooperation with Stiftelsen Vekst and Tekna. This approach will ensure synergies between Vekst’s local network in Armenia and Tekna’s international experience in running CPEE projects.

Application is sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway. Approval is pending.

6.      Economical / Environmental / Ethical (EEE) development of international sub-suppliers to Norwegian retail companies: Big Norwegian retail companies are more and more involved in import of goods for sale in Norway in order to cut costs. Main sectors for import are food, furniture and textiles. The Norwegian retail companies are taking a considerable risk if they cannot control the environmental and ethical performance of their foreign sub-suppliers.

Grip - the Norwegian foundation for Sustainable Consumption and Production (www.grip.no) has long cooperated with the Norwegian Ministry of Environment to run programmes for sustainable development.

IEH – The Initiative for Ethical Trade (www.etiskhandel.no) has since 2001 co-operated with companies, employers’ organisations, trade unions and NGOs to promote socially responsible sourcing for Norwegian consumers.

The so-called “Triple E” programme will be run jointly with Grip, IEH and Tekna and support sub-suppliers of Norwegian retailers to build up their management system to improve their Economical / Environmental / Ethical (EEE) performance.

A pre-project together with COOP, one of the big retailers in Norway, will start in Poland second half of 2005. On the condition that the pre-project is successful, a long term programme of 4-5 years is planned to develop environmentally and ethically “clean” suppliers in foreign countries.
