Today the services, or tertiary sector, is driving the European economy, generating around 70 % of EU GDP and employment . It’s Energy Consumption has been growing continuously since 2008, with just trade premises and offices clocking up over 50%. Hence the importance of making this sector more energy efficient and reducing its carbon footprint.
Energy efficiency has become a new resource itself: it’s competitive, cost effective, and widely available. But, it seems that 74% of people think that organisations are still not doing enough to cut their carbon emission and tackle climate change . Lack of knowledge and financial constraints are two of the main reasons behind this.
Being aware of your organisation’s footprint will allow you to reduce sources of carbon from your company’s operations and start planning a carbon neutral journey. So how do you get started?
The ICTFOOTPRINT.eu webinar will ensure you’re on the ball in low carbon footprint.
