Dec. 7-18 event will result in a worldwide effort to reduce carbon dioxide
emissions while ensuring economies keep growing.
Danfoss CEO Niels
B. Christiansen said new technologies could help save energy and money.
“Many of these technologies
already exist,” Christiansen said. “The task before us is to take these proven,
energy-efficient technologies and apply them to solutions that can immediately
reduce CO2 emissions and save energy. The money these technologies save can
then be invested in more long-term development of new, green energy sources.”
Danfoss is holding a
parallel event with the conference, Bright Green. The Dec. 12-13 trade show
will showcase 175 of world’s green-technology firms.
“Bright Green is designed to
demonstrate to officials, experts and heads of state the technologies already
at work in the climate change challenge,” said Christiansen. “At Danfoss, for
example, we offer more than 75 years experience in energy-efficient
technologies. We are applying that core knowledge to traditional energy
solutions as well as projects that use renewable energy sources, including wind
and solar. At the same time, targeted investments in innovation and new
development projects will continue to support the company’s position as a
leader in the green economy.”
