Our generation has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, a challenge, we must not let it pass. The world is facing an environmental crisis that threatens how we live our lives, and the lives of our children. We have a duty to act. Energy has never been a hotter discussion topic. The cheapest and cleanest energy is saved energy, and it is available now.
40% of the world’s energy is used in buildings and insulation has been proven time and time again as the most effective method, both practically and economically that can substantially reduce that. We can, and must, become the world leader in energy efficient systems for buildings. In doing so we will have a radical impact on the world’s supply of energy and create a sustainable legacy for our children.
If we achieve our goal, if we work together to face this challenge head on, then the world will be a better place. This is our opportunity, this is our chance to make a difference. What we do today, and tomorrow, will be remembered 50 years from now. This is our time.
