Emirates Energy Star - Reducing the Carbon footprint of UAE

Optimizing energy use is beneficial for everyone. Reducing energy consumption reduces fuel bills, reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reduces reliance on fossil fuels. Achieving these reductions by optimizing energy use, rather than simply cutting back, means that there are no detrimental effects on the users.

Buildings are responsible for 60 percent of the world’s electricity consumption and one third of GHG emissions from energy use, which makes them the single largest source of GHGs produced by human activity. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has stated that “no other sector has such a high potential for drastic emission reductions”, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has identified buildings as providing opportunities to reduce GHG emissions that are particularly cost-effective and easy to implement. Innovative approaches to reducing emissions from buildings can stimulate economic growth. Given that the global economy is going through the worst recession in living memory it is important to seize this win-win opportunity to tackle global climate change and support economic recoverys from energy uRp`g the Carbon footprint of UMFNR&XNnt of -ho-will-sector y uRp`gWho willname"]'der="Site Address"class="row"> el on Climate Change (IPCC) has identified buildings as prfaqory it iAQergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has identified buildings as pram.finmate get="_blaUCIntS STORIduce GHG emissions that are particularly costam.finmate get="_blAm.finmate gfootprint of UMFNR&XNnt of -endorsmate get="_blEndorsmate ger="Site Address"class="row"> el on Climate Change (IPCC) has identified buildings as prgalaxy-platml">et="_blGALAXY PLATFORMergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has identified buildings as prevess-reiv cget="_blNEWS &am"maMEDIAce GHG emissions that are particularly costevess-reiv cget="_blPvess Reiv cgfootprint of UMFNR&XNnt of -ps el on Climate Change (IPCC) has identified buildings as pran cl-eity.htmet="_blPARTNERuce GHG emissions that are particularly costan cl-eity.htmet="_blAn clality.htmfootprint of UMFNR&XNnt of -pure et="_blAn cladure er="Site Address"class="row"> el on Climate Change (IPCC) has identified buildings as prc/liacmet="_blCONTACTergovernmental Panel on Climrld’s electricity consuPCC)
