Why addressing the climate threat makes business sense Richard Mason ACT- Addressing the Climate Threat

Why fighting the climate threat makes business sense In order to achieve the ambitious EU emission reduction targets businesses in all sectors will have to change the way they produce, deliver and consume energy There are examples from all over the world, of businesses from all sectors already taking action to combat the effects of climate change

It’s not just cooperatives This is not just about saving the planet it’s also about profit Why else would companies owned by shareholders be taking action?

Focus on retailers Important energy consumers Influence on consumer purchasing Engaging and educating customers

Housing Sector Buildings represent 40% of GHG emissions Offers the most affordable way to cut emissions

Housing sector Investments are largely offset by energy cost savings Efficiency measures in residential buildings offer better cost recovery than in commercial buildings. Social and co-operative housing account for 12% of Europe's residential housing stock.

Cooperative Advantages Most housing companies look for energy saving technology that pays for itself within 5 years. Co-operatives, without the need to meet shareholder demands can take a longer term view.

How can energy efficient housing become a reality? The technology to hit global emission reduction targets of 50% by 2050 is already available Many co-operatives are already significantly decreasing energy consumption to their advantage

To talk about this is Dr Hachmann of CECODAS
