The business case for energy productivity improvements as a driver of demand-side energy transition is increasingly becoming more apparent. A newly published report by the Energy Transitions Commission and Vivid Economics has identified that improvements in energy productivity account for up to 45% of carbon reductions in low carbon emissions scenarios. The findings make a compelling case for early action, and indicate that larger efforts later on will simply not be sufficient if we are to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius.
Meanwhile, 10 global companies have already committed to doubling their energy productivity under EP100, an initiative led by The Climate Group in partnership with the Alliance to Save Energy, and also a part of the We Mean Business coalition.
Please join The Climate Group and the Energy Transitions Commission for a webinar on March 30 at 4pm BST to hear additional findings from the report – Economic growth in a low carbon world: How to reconcile growth and climate through energy productivity – and to learn why it makes business sense to join EP100.
