Renewable Energy and Climate Change

In 2011, the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) stated that close to 80 percent of the world‘s energy supply could be met by renewables by mid-century if backed by the right enabling public policies; and in doing so, could represent a cut of around a third in greenhouse gas emissions from business-as-usual projections, and keep concentrations of greenhouse gases at 450 parts per million. This could contribute towards a goal of holding the increase in global temperature below 2 degrees Celsius – an aim recognized in the United Nations Climate Convention's Cancun Agreements.

We believe we have a responsibility to work towards this goal of cutting our carbon emissions and developing alternative sources of energy.
