Industries all over the word have come together to combat greenhouse gases and look for alternate and renewable energy sources in order to build a better future.
Under the Kyoto Protocol, 39 industrialized countries and the European Union (EU) have committed to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions collectively by the year 2012 to over 5% from 1990 levels. Each country has a defined target to meet. These Greenhouse Gases include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulphur hexafluoride and two additional groups of gases (hydrofluorocarbons and perfluorocarbons).
In addressing these target emission reduction goals, many countries are participating in carbon credit trading as well as issuing tax incentives for developing alternating sources and using renewable energy.
It has been shown that through optimization of energy, money can be saved and costs cut to keep businesses greener and most profitable, while also running more efficiently.
