CLEAN & EFFICIENT ENERGY
“Moving forward, all investment decisions should be assessed on the basis of their potential to dramatically accelerate the structural shift towards an inclusive low-carbon economy.”
International Renewable Energy Agency¹
If we don’t break our current reliance on fossil fuels for energy, we’re on track for global warming of 2 degrees by 2050² - with devastating environmental and financial consequences.
Accelerating the transition to renewable energy and energy efficiency will significantly reduce carbon emissions and keep us on track for 1.5 degrees of warming - avoiding the worst effects of global climate change.
