EP100 Progress and Insights Report 2020

EP100 report infographic

From British engineering to cement production in the Middle East, businesses are showing that smarter energy use can lower emissions and help to spur green growth after COVID-19.    

Our EP100 2020 Progress and Insights Report 2020 tracks the rapid progress of energy-smart member companies improving their energy productivity. It reveals that by using the latest technologies, improving processes, and digitising use, just 33 EP100 companies have avoided 328 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) to date – more than the annual emissions of France. The transition is also good news for business, with a total of US$200 million in savings saved annually by the 22 companies able to cost up their energy savings.

Research by the International Energy Agency (IEA) shows that to avoid the most severe impacts of climate change, energy efficiency will need to deliver around half of the emissions cuts required by 2030.
