RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Rio+20 provides much-needed momentum to international cooperation on sustainable development post global financial crisis. The question is how decision makers can translate goals into action in a cost-effective, fast and convergent manner.
Impact Economy is proud to announce its partnership with the Network of European Metropolitan Regions and Areas (METREX), leveraging the firm's expertise in strategy, investment and sustainability advisory to advance the goal of a more sustainable and effective economy.
Producing roughly 70% of worldwide greenhouse gas, cities and metropolitan regions are in a unique position to address climate change. Given many governments' ambition to achieve 80% emissions reductions by 2050, a decision and strategy tool such as Regenerative Energies for Metropolitan Areas and Cities (reMAC) is invaluable, covering the full spectrum of answers relating to financial viability, technical feasibility and carbon reduction.
As official partner and sole promoter and distributor outside the European Union, Impact Economy will support the rollout and implementation of reMAC to metropolitan administrations in cities ranging from 20,000 inhabitants upwards. Based on local data and potential mixes of energy sources and policy choices, reMAC models regional CO2 reduction and cost scenarios. This enables regional stakeholders to take smart decisions to efficiently achieve carbon reduction and profit from investments in renewables.
As member of the Clinton Global Initiative and strategy partner of R20 Regions of Climate Action, Impact Economy is actively seeking ways to maximize impact in fulfilling its mission to facilitate the transition towards sustainable capitalism.
