GE Promotes Environment Friendly Technologies

General Electric, a US-based multi-national company, which has established itself as a champion of climate-friendly technologies, has criticized prominent Republican presidential candidates for not accepting the truth that man actions are contributing to global warming.

Mark Vachon, who is the head of the sustainable business initiative GE, was of the view that they have been taking climate change quite seriously, since they have conducted an internal evaluation about the same in 2005. They have been trying to take all possible measures by which they are able to reduce carbon emissions from their factories.

In fact, they have been successful in introducing such technologies in their companies which are environment friendly. Mark said that he feels proud to inform that they have been able to reduce $140m from their energy bill and are trying to save even more.

They have also introduced ‘ecomagination’, a sustainable business initiative. Mark said that all the money that is generated from this business is used to reduce global warming. Till now, they have been able to generate $100bn and are thinking of getting some more environment friendly machines from the money.

Mark said that they would like to pass on a message to all the voters that they should see all the efforts being done by their preferred presidential candidates for reducing global warming.

In addition, Christiana Figueres, who is the Head of the Bonn-based UN secretariat, was of the view that it will be a great win for Republicans if they focus on promoting new clean energy technologies.

“Is the US electorate willing to allow the competitive edge on technology to go to China or to Europe, or would they prefer to be the leaders of technology? That is a question that they need to answer”, said Figueres.
