G7 leaders met in June 2015 to discuss pressing world issues. Climate change was one of the items on the agenda. The leaders pledged to reduce carbon emissions at the summit, ahead of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, to be held in Paris at the end of 2015.
Here at Energy Innovations, we are helping schools, hospitals and many other industries, such as Agriculture, Horticulture, Commercial and Industrial businesses to not only to reduce carbon emissions, but also to reduce energy bills and receive payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCS) for the next twenty years. This combination can improve key productivity areas, with the knock on effect of the improvement of the business as a whole.
In an official press release, the G7 leaders pledged to reduce carbon and leave fossil fuels by the end of the 21st Century:
“We commit to doing our part to achieve a low-carbon global economy in the long-term, including developing and deploying innovative technologies striving for a transformation of the energy sectors by 2050.”
The pledge was welcomed by lobbyists such as Greenpeace and Avaaz. Although no specific targets were set at the summit, it is expected that this will be dealt with at the UN Climate Change Conference, due to be held in Paris at the end of 2015.
The G7 leaders are backing ‘decreased greenhouse gas emissions’, as well as a target to cap global temperature increases to two degrees Celsius compared to ‘pre-industrial levels’. – Reuters.

As well as contributing towards preserving the environment, you will also receive financial benefits such as reduced fuel bills and payments from the RHI or ROCS for the next twenty years.
