"By improving individual energy performance, each of us is acting for the planet, whilst continuing to maintain our comforts and safeguarding our finances. We should not forget that this creates economic momentum, which for once, does not recklessly consume our natural resources, but preserves them."

Message from Council Member

  • Raoul Viora:

    If You look for: "Immediate Actions to reduce Air Pollutions and Climate Troubles", "Safer Energy Supplies, including Renewable", "Sustainable Development of all Countries" ,, then think about Energy Efficiency, and participate in the Monaco EEForum 2011, to build up a smarter future.

  • Serge de Gheldere:

    "It is time to reframe the climate debate - away from idealism or altruism and towards business intelligence."

  • Rasmus Nedergaard:

    "Energy efficiency is carbon efficiency, being the first and most important step on the way towards a low carbon society. Energy efficiency is also sustainability at it 's best, creating potential large savings on energy costs, being a competitive advantage for the businesses and cooperation's investing."

  • Russel Mills:

    "Smart companies and countries have long realised the benefits of prioritising energy efficiency investments. With the triple challenge of increasing energy costs, supply concerns and climate protection, there has never been a better time to step up the drive to greater efficiency.
    The smarter countries and companies will ensure energy efficiency initiatives represent commitments for the long term. It is only through such longer term approaches that we can deliver the full benefits of efficiency programs to the societies we all serve."

  • Alicia Montalvo:

    "The link between Energy and Climate Change is a masterpiece in the Euro-Mediterranean relations that open a window of opportunity towards sustainable development and low carbon emissions growth. Exploiting the full potential of the Mediterranean region in regard to green energy will contribute to further strengthen the economic bridges and to make progress in fulfilling global challenges."
