The Fifth Estate ebook: Renewable Energy

In collaboration with CitySwitch, The Fifth Estate has released the latest free ebook in the Greening Your Office series. 

Renewable Energy: Joining the Zero Carbon Revolution discusses how commercial property owners and tenants can switch to renewable energy. It looks at the vast and rapid changes underway in technology, financial services, regulatory systems and service delivery that make the goal of net zero not only possible, but an attractive business proposition.

Through onsite renewables, offsite procurement of renewable energy and offsetting remaining emissions through the purchase of carbon credits, the ebook highlights that businesses can be part of the environmental, social and economic benefits of a low-carbon economy.

Smart businesses are reading the signs and responding to the absolute necessity of limiting the effects of climate change. They know we can’t wait around for governments to act. Now is the time to lead.
