DESTINATION OF REVENUES – SOCIAL BENEFITS:  DESTINATION OF REVENUES – SOCIAL BENEFITS As agreed with the Mayor of Mátészalka, the income deriving from the selling would be used for: Demand-side improvements in schools (e.g. changing windows in the Képes Géza secondary school) Planting of “energy forest” Installing condensation heat recovery in the boiler house of the district heating The project incorporated social and economic benefits Creation of new jobs Lowering CO and NOx emissions COMMUNICATING THE INITIATIVE:  COMMUNICATING THE INITIATIVE Aim: to address delegates and involve them Collaterals Website Side-event in the “Italia” pavilion Press briefing THE LEGACY OF COP9: RESULTS ACHIEVED AND FUTURE STEPS:  THE LEGACY OF COP9: RESULTS ACHIEVED AND FUTURE STEPS Example followed by the XX Winter Olympic Games in Turin Own methodology, based on a life-cycle approach Much higher amount: over 100,000 tons Kyoto Club, Legambiente and Ambiente Italia recently established a new entity: AzzeroCO2, partner of Future Forests The aim is to promote carbon offset initiatives in Italy, focusing on: Renewable energy sources Energy efficiency Reforestation Slide11:  Foster local sustainable development Italy: credits sourced by FIPER - biomass district heating substituting oil, verified by DNV Italia FIPER committed itself to reinvest all the funds in new capacity Abroad: high quality credits sourced by FF CARBONNEUTRAL® IN ITALY: AZZEROCO2 Low absolute emission reduction amount but very high awareness raising value Recent TV transmission off-set communicated to millions of people Triggering role of Public Administrations First example: the Municipality of Rome CONTACT DETAILS:  CONTACT DETAILS
