Enigin - The CBI Encourage Energy Efficiency
Today marks the opening of the UN Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) called on other countries to adhere to carbon emissions reduction target schemes, in order to help fight global warming.
The CBI believe that emission cutting measures, along with protocol allowing businesses to purchase permits for carbon, should be the fundamentals of the global carbon market.
By doing so, businesses will be encouraged to turn to energy efficient products, such as the systems Enigin PLC provide to businesses all over the world.
Enigin have a wide range of specialised products to help businesses save on energy bills while reducing their carbon output. Enigin are constantly supplying energy efficient solutions for lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration and motors.
Enigin also have the Eniscope - a smart monitoring instrument, which evaluates energy usage and wastage, and makes the information collected easy to read and accessible from any PC, laptop or iPhone in the world, in real-time. The Eniscope is like a virtual energy manager that works for business owners 24/7.
CBI's deputy director-general, Mr. John Cridland, thinks that UK businesses have a strong interest in a successful outcome at the climate summit:
‘After all, it will be business that delivers the new infrastructure and develops the products and services needed for the shift to a low-carbon economy '...' First, we want all nations to deliver a strong commitment to reducing emissions at Copenhagen. Second, the foundations should be laid for a global market for carbon, by developing schemes that cap emissions and create a market for trading in carbon permits.’
Mr. Cridland believes that making it mandatory for polluting businesses to pay more, for a smaller number of available permits, will encourage business owners to invest in energy efficiency , through companies like Enigin PLC.
Mr Cridland declared that the CBI is also hoping for a broad agreement that richer nations will contribute financially in helping poorer countries move to a low-carbon economy.
Overall the CBI promote the concept of more expensive carbon permits, aiming to encourage businesses to implement energy saving systems in their premises so as to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to tackling climate change.
