Resource and energy efficiency

Publication front coverThe rate at which the world’s population is using the Earth’s resources is unsustainable, and unless we change course, this will continue to increase dramatically. By 2030, it is estimated that even two planets will not be enough to sustain our resource and energy consumption.

The solution lies in not only making a commitment to meeting all of our energy needs from clean and green sources, but by being energy efficient – cutting the amount of energy we use by increasing the efficiency of our buildings, cars, equipment and factories. We need to maximise recycling, minimise greenhouse gas emissions and manage our resources sustainably.
