4th annual Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum discusses important role of energy efficiency for economic growth

Held under the theme "Targeting Efficiency for Economic Recovery" committing to Growth, the forum welcomed more than 170 European policy and decision makers, private, public, and civil society representatives.
The attendees discussed the policies necessary to support greater energy efficiency investments and heard examples of best practices where energy efficiency has spurred economic development in addition to comfort, health, productivity and other benefits.

All greenhouse gas emissions relating to the organisation of the Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum will be offset thanks to the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s “Monaco Carbon Offsetting” Programme.
