Rome, May 7 - Homes and businesses in Italy's Lazio
region, home to capital city Rome, could save up to 22.1 billion
euros through greater energy efficiency, says a study on
sustainability released Tuesday.
Over the decade from 2010 to 2020, more efficient energy
use by businesses could save about 8.2 billion euros per year
while residential use could be tightened to save about 12
billion euros annually.
Those figures come from a report by Officinae Verde SpA, a
joint venture between Italian bank UniCredit and the World
Wildlife Fund Italy.
The report was presented during a climate change conference
organized by the Department of Political Science at Rome's LUISS
University and the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change
(CMCC).
According to Officinae Verde, about 40% of energy spending
last year is attributable to businesses that could have cut
their bill - and CO2 emissions - in half.
Current trends in global warming mean that the global
temperatures could rise by between four degrees C and six
degrees C, "with devastating effects on ecosystems and our
everyday life," said Riccardo Valentini of the CMCC.
