The E.P. Systems Group is participating in consultations in England on climate change adaptation by suburbs and by gathering data on the British initiatives with respect to conversion to a lower carbon economy and will be writing up results in the coming months.
Specific initiatives and organizational efforts being examined include:
- The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) and associated ‘carbon budgets’
- The role of the Carbon Trust as a guide for businesses and other nongovernmental entities
- The role of taxes, as examined by the Green Fiscal Commission
- The economic returns to energy efficiency and the job creation potentials of the new energy economy
