Eight Factors Driving Global Industrial Efficiency

Eight Factors Driving Global Industrial Efficiencyreports Jigar V. Shah atGreenTechMedia, include government policies and programs, energy management systems within companies, transparent disclosure of the real carbon costs of doing business.

Exxon, Shell, BP, Total, Google, Walt Disney and leading US utilities are all internallypricing the cost of carbon emissions, and is now a “core element” of most large corporations’ long term planning.

Other factors include using inhouse estimates of carbon’s price, comparing how competitors save energy, carbon pricing their supply chains, and finally, technological and financing innovations.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here.

This is how YOU can make a difference.
