EU Sustainable Energy Week leads by example with its carbon-offsetting programme, which includes funding for projects focused on renewable resources.

Six months after the Paris climate agreement, attention is now focused on concrete actions to cut carbon emissions to sustainable levels. That includes the transition to renewable energy.

The timing is perfect for EUSEW. It is a proven platform for sharing ideas and knowhow while forging alliances to bring about a fundamental transition focused on energy efficiency and efforts to decarbonise the economy.

From the largest to the smallest initiatives – along the entire energy supply chain, including production and distribution through to consumption – every little bit counts. This is why the EUSEW Secretariat has implemented its own programme to offset the CO2 generated through the printing of its programmes and other event materials.

Total compensated CO2 is 636 kg, divided as follows:

  • 168 kg for large posters
  • 17 kg for postcards
  • 414 kg for general promotional posters
  • 11 kg for business cards
  • 26 kg for bookmarks

EUSEW’s carbon-compensation beneficiaries

Bandeira & Capelli is a Brazilian project to promote the use of renewable biomass in the production of ceramics and other artefacts. It also has an important social dimension, providing children in the community with opportunities to learn new skills.

Biogas CDM Project of Bagepalli Coolie Sangha is an initiative in India to finance 18 000 biogas stoves for domestic use, replacing the use of non-renewable energy sources for cooking and heating water.

European Sustainable Energy Week is a month-long series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power. Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, EUSEW is organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) in close cooperation with Directorate-General for Energy.


Dear... Increasingly Sustainable actions are multiplied in Brazil. Since the beginning of our work in 1992 at the ECO 92 that took place here in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, started Sustainability Campaign, at the time with the resources known to CDM and then with the measurements made by the Pacts 21 with Agendas and Rio + 20 . Today I am as Pre Candidate Councillor for Rio de Janeiro with Carbon and Sustainability Credits platform with the chosen name WALTER ♻️ OF SUSTAINABILITY. I count on the support of the International Society of Carbon Credit in order to promote Sustainability in Government. The works of creation and viability of Sustainable Projects made by our Company ♻️ B & G Empreendimentos / B &G Ambiental ♻️ found problems of acceptance and commitment on sustainable practices by the government and with the high tax rates of the recycled products and the second and third recycled industrial insert. I am currently looking for support in Sustainable Projects for Brazil and the eradication of world hunger with GENESIS PROJECT my own. I'm getting proposed by e-mail: walter.g.barboza@gmail.com Cada vez mais as ações Sustentáveis estão sendo multiplicadas aqui no Brasil. Desde o início de nossos trabalhos em 1992 na ECO 92 que ocorreu aqui no Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, começamos a Campanha de Sustentabilidade, na época com os recursos conhecidos pelo MDL e depois com as medidas feitas pelos Pactos 21 com Agendas e Rio + 20. Hoje estou como Pré Candidato a Vereador pelo Rio de Janeiro com a plataforma de Créditos de Carbono e Sustentabilidade com o nome escolhido WALTER DA SUSTENTABILIDADE ♻️. Conto com o apoio da Sociedade Internacional de Crédito de Carbono como forma de promover a Sustentabilidade no Poder Público. Os trabalhos de criação e viabilidade de Projetos Sustentáveis feitos pela nossa Empresa ♻️ B&G Empreendimentos/B&G Ambiental ♻️ encontramos problemas de aceitação e comprometimento nas práticas sustentáveis pelo poder público e ainda com as altas taxas de tributação dos produtos reciclados e de segunda e terceira inserção industrial reciclado. Atualmente estou procurando o apoio em Projetos Sustentáveis para o Brasil e pela erradicação da fome mundial com o PROJETO GÊNESIS de minha autoria. Estou recebendo propostas pelo e-mail: walter.g.barboza@gmail.com
