Why we are Taking Action

We can only act on what we know and hopefully, once we know, we can work together to engineer a better world.

Dear Business Leader,

The purpose of this communication is to encourage the Boards of companies worldwide to create a simple to understand policy to encourage sustainability projects to be brought to their attention. Our Group of Companies (AES) has made environmental projects a priority for many years, but recent events have convinced us that we need a direct conduit from our own operators and suppliers. 

 

Yours sincerely,
Chris Rea, CBE, BSc, CEng, FIMechE, DL
‘Engineering a better world’

We need better communication with our own staff, especially those with the vision and the expertise to see how climate-friendly change can also be business-friendly.

We estimate that widespread adoption of more climate-friendly policies in industry globally, could have the equivalent impact of taking 422.5 million cars  off the roads while also providing a useful return on investment. (See Technical Annex_RR3)

We can only act on what we know. And hopefully, once we know, we can work together to engineer a better world.

If you want to help, a good first step would be to encourage your company board to adopt a policy with a similar spirit to ‘A Policy to Prevent Global Warming (PPGW)’

This will help ensure that appropriate sustainability projects are brought to their attention.  

If enough businesses act, together we can slow down or help to prevent Global Warming.

The policy can be considered as being freely available.  There is no requirement to acknowledge any individual in AES, or the Corporation.  Companies can decide their own Return on Investment criteria and tailor the feedback mechanism as appropriate.
The important thing is to ensure that Boards of companies are better informed so they can save water and energy, limit the damage to our environment and also get a Return on Investment.

Should you believe that this approach has merit, there is no copyright on any part of this communication.  Please feel free to pass on any or all of it to any interested person or business.
