Johnson Controls, the global leader in delivering products, services and solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings and vehicles, and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, today announced their partnership with The Climate Group for the Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum 2011.
The Climate Group is an international non-profit organisation focused on finding smart policies and technologies that cut global emissions and advance progress towards a low-carbon economy. The Climate Group’s involvement in the event builds on existing relationships with both Johnson Controls and Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation based on a shared commitment to environmental sustainability, and a determination to encourage individuals, businesses and governments to reduce collective impact on the environment.
“There has never been a more compelling phenomenon than climate change. However, the necessary response to the associated challenges present opportunities to drive innovation and economic growth in Europe. Our ambition is that the Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum be a catalyst for assertive action in addressing climate change through energy efficiency. We are honoured to have two excellent partners in the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and The Climate Group. They share our vision and sense of urgency in communicating and breaking down the barriers to action that challenge resolving this global problem,” explains Agostino Renna, Vice President and General Manager, Energy Solutions, South & Central Europe.
For a second year running, the Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum will bring together experts from government, non-government organisations, the private sector and academia to discuss, on a strategic level, how Europe and the Mediterranean region can achieve meaningful energy saving targets. The inaugural Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum, which took place in April this year, was a resounding success, with H.S.H. Prince Albert II as one of the key speakers.
