DG CLIMA’s World You Like with a Climate You Like campaign was launched in October 2012 and aims to empower entities to work against climate change.
The campaign creates a showcase of creative initiatives taken by entities throughout the EU to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and pressure on the environment. These initiatives feature on the campaign’s website – http://world-you-like.europa.eu/ - a veritable mine of information on what action can be taken against climate change.
Through the EU LIFE+ Investing in Water Project the Malta Business Bureau welcomes this campaign, and intends to support it.
Malta’s tap-water is a mix of groundwater and reverse-osmosis desalinated seawater. This energy hungry process consumes up to 5% of Malta’s energy – all of which comes from fossil fuels. This leads to greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change.
The good news is that by saving water local enterprises are not only reducing their utility bills and helping to protect a nationally scarce resource, but also fighting climate change.
If your enterprise wishes to invest in saving water the EU LIFE+ Investing in Water Project is happy to help. Book a water audit and benefit from expert advice to identify your water saving potential and recommend specific water saving solutions. For more information visit this page.
