arctick polar icecapWith relatively little data available about the Earth’s Polar Regions – posing risks for people and the environment – the United Nations weather agency has kicked off of a two-year international effort to close gaps in polar forecasting capacity and to improve future environmental safety at the farthest reaches of the planet.

vie18The latest United Nations report on energy-efficiency technologies shows that low-carbon technologies apparently aid clean air, save water and cut land use, and could reduce 25 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions and 17 million tonnes of particulates a year.

bonn climate change conference2017An important event on climate change science will be held on 10 May at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn. This year’s annual meeting of the “Research Dialogue” will focus on regional climate information and gaps, as well as on science to take stock of and assess progress on mitigation.

windsolarCompanies that use sustainable power sources are no longer viewed as progressive outliers. In 2017, organizations that aren’t making the effort to ramp up sustainable power efforts are falling behind the times. It’s no longer enough to initiate once-a-year earth day campaigns and organizations now need to step up and enact real progress by switching to sustainable power sources.

uneceThe United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is celebrating 70 years of bringing countries across the continent together to cooperate on a wide range of issues, including trade, transport, sustainable development and food safety, which impact the daily lives of its citizens.

2020dontbelateA group of leading climate and business experts today identified the year 2020 as a game changing opportunity to turn the tide on the devastating impacts of carbon emissions. Convened by Christiana Figueres - former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – the group met today in London to encourage urgent action in the next three years.

co2 20CO2 and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere can be reduce in 2 ways-by cutting our emissions, or by removing it from the atmosphere, for example through plants, the ocean, and soil. The Paris Agreement set a target of limiting future global average temperature increase to well below 2°C and pursue efforts to even further limit the average increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

global energy laureat The name of the Global Energy Prize laureate was announced during the international press conference. In 2017 the prestigious award goes to Michael Graetzel (Switzerland) “for transcendent merits in development of low cost and efficient solar cells, known as “Graetzel cells”, aimed to creation of cost-efficient, large-scale engineering solutions for power generation”.
