Energy Efficiency Teaching Module

Energy Efficiency: Overview

Author: Johnson, Jennifer
Product Type: Teaching Modules
Source: The Aspen Institute Center for Business Education
Publication Year: 2009

[This document has not yet been rated] 2258 views

At its core, energy efficiency is about doing more with less. In times of a down economy and uncertain energy prices, the importance of saving energy seems clear; over the long term, however, how does a focus on energy efficiency make sense for business? Business is both uniquely suited to address the problems of energy efficiency and to reap the potential rewards of those solutions, if it is able to meld social and profit constraints into a plan for an innovative energy future. The purpose of this Module is to discuss energy efficiency as a strategic solution rather than a defensive reaction, and to present ways to manage challenges and make the most of opportunities at this intersection of business and society.

According to traditional models of human rights, states are responsible for securing the rights of their citizens. But these models do not fit reality: States are often unwilling or unable to live up to their obligations, but if human rights are to be more than empty words, then we must identify who bears the obligation to deliver on those rights. Could new powerful global actors - from nonprofit organizations to multinational corporations - hold a key to safeguarding human rights in the face of globalization?
