To make the green economy happen, Remac enables metropolitan regions and
cities to take informed decisions on energy & carbon reduction
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL, June 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Rio+20 provides
much-needed momentum to international cooperation on sustainable
development post global financial crisis. The question is how decision
makers can translate goals into action in a cost-effective, fast and
Impact Economy is proud to announce its partnership with the Network of
European Metropolitan Regions and Areas (METREX), leveraging the firm's
expertise in strategy, investment and sustainability advisory to
advance the goal of a more sustainable and effective economy.
Producing roughly 70% of worldwide greenhouse gas, cities and
metropolitan regions are in a unique position to address climate
change. Given many governments' ambition to achieve 80% emissions
reductions by 2050, a decision and strategy tool such as Regenerative
Energies for Metropolitan Areas and Cities (reMAC) is invaluable,
covering the full spectrum of answers relating to financial viability,
technical feasibility and carbon reduction.
As official partner and sole promoter and distributor outside the
European Union, Impact Economy will support the rollout and
implementation of reMAC to metropolitan administrations in cities
ranging from 20,000 inhabitants upwards. Based on local data and
potential mixes of energy sources and policy choices, reMAC models
regional CO2 reduction and cost scenarios. This enables regional
stakeholders to take smart decisions to efficiently achieve carbon
reduction and profit from investments in renewables.
As member of the Clinton Global Initiative and strategy partner of R20
Regions of Climate Action, Impact Economy is actively seeking ways to
maximize impact in fulfilling its mission to facilitate the transition
towards sustainable capitalism.
