To Make the Green Economy Happen, reMAC Enables Metropolitan
Regions and Cities to Take Informed Decisions on Energy & Carbon
Reduction Strategies
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
convergent manner.
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 CO
2
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.
