We have the technology to act – NOW
Many people still believe that the technological breakthroughs necessary to curb global warming lie somewhere in the future. But the reality is that we already have the technology to drastically reduce our energy consumption and CO2 emissions – NOW. The products and solutions exist, are easily installable and are often simple plug-and-play solutions. Act NOW is committed to making relevant decision-makers aware of this fact.
The organisations behind Act NOW include Grundfos, Copenhagen Municipality, Concito and the Climate Consortium. For more information, please visit www.actnow-movement.com.
