Improved resource efficiency represents an important opportunity for European businesses and households alike. Not only would the climate and environment benefit from re-using and re-cycling, but waste can also be turned into cheap electricity, steam and heating.
On 22 May, the event ‘Visions for a world you like: Reduce Waste. Reduce Costs. Reduce Emissions.’ will be held in Vilnius, Lithuania, to highlight how re-use of materials and managing waste rationally can boost economic growth and skilled employment while tackling climate change at the same time.
Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action, invites citizens, business and politicians from Lithuania and beyond to debate best practices on how to harvest the economic potential of increased resource efficiency and tackle climate change at the same time.
Connie Hedegaard: "Each one of us can make a difference in the fight against climate change – governments, industries, cities but also individual consumers. Do you know just what you can do? Buying local or energy-labelled products, taking the bike or avoiding unnecessary waste of energy: these smart changes will give us lower energy bills, comfortable and modern homes, cleaner air and easier mobility."
