What is the Green Revolution of the 1970-80's in India,is what the Clean Revolution of 2011-12 is expected for the World.A massive upscale revolution for Green Energy and Infrastructure.A change in technology to improve efficiency and use of natural resources. A process to create green jobs, boost Eco-economic growth, and secure a better, more sustainable future for all.
The Clean Revolution campaign was initiated on September 2011, in New York. Michael Bloomberg, Tony Blair, and other international government and business leaders have joined and pledged their support for the mission. The campaign will be formally launched during the Earth Summit in Rio, in June 2012.It will inspire Green Leadership, highlight the opportunities and empower the world’s decision- makers to take action on the low carbon economy.
To emphasize the emerging face of the Revolution, an initial set of eight success stories, inspired by Green leadership, have been selected to be case samples at the Rio Summit. These stories cover a diverse mix of businesses and governments: Better Place, BT Group, IKEA, Suzlon and the governments ofChina, Scotland, South Australia and the City of New York. All of these projects are working to reduce carbon emissions, improve energy security, and create new Eco-Business models.
