Improving Private Sector Energy Efficiency

  • July 08, 2015


During Paris Climate Week global business leaders reaffirmed their commitment to supporting the transition to a clean energy future- an integral element in reaching a meaningful agreement at COP21 this December.

Making drastic energy efficiency improvements is vital in achieving this low carbon vision. Recognised by Deutche Bank as the ‘first fuel’, increased investment in energy efficiency will not only saves money and carbon dioxide but drive green economic growth, creating skilled jobs and new business opportunities.

The facts:

  • Average market returns from investing in energy efficiency could reach up to 17%
  • Buildings present the greatest opportunity for improved energy efficiency, responsible for 40% of a country’s energy use
  • By 2030, improved energy efficiency in buildings and industry has the potential to save the equivalent electricity output of 1,300 power plants

The private sector is increasingly seeing the value of investing in supply chain efficiency, as improving the energy performance of global operations begins to make both environmental and business sense.

This webinar will unite business leaders to discuss the role of the private sector in integrating energy efficiency measures into business models, considering the financial impact of undertaking such measures and policies that would support greater implementation.
