    Energy systems are changing – fundamentally and fast. The importance of individual energy sources and options for power generation are changing, as are the ways in which electricity is transmitted and distributed. Power generation is becoming more and more decentralized making grid management increasingly complex. Electrical consumption continues to steadily rise all over the world.

    How is your region being affected by climate change? How will it be affected in the future?

    Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.

    Start small and do your part just by changing your daily habits. To help save the environment, try decreasing energy and water consumption; changing your eating and transportation habits to conserve natural resources; and reducing, reusing, and recycling to be more environmentally friendly

    What have you noticed about your purchases? Where are you inclined to make shifts, if any?

    In a time where companies are being asked to do more with less, it can be challenging to implement changes in your business that make the shift to social and environmental responsibility. But more businesses are making those changes to do good and take pride in their workplaces, and they are seeing the return on their investment as a result. The bottom line is that social responsibility can increase your company’s bottom line while making a difference in your community. Make no mistake – consumers notice organizations that are being socially responsible, and they reward them with their dollars, accolades, and loyalty.

    Reducing our environmental footprint is at the very heart of our corporate strategy. We continually seek ways to reduce the impact of our industrial activities. Since 2010, we have succeeded in lowering our greenhouse gas emissions by 23% within our operated scope. We are continuing our efforts by focusing on two major strategies: reducing routine flaring and improving the energy efficiency of our installations.

    The home environment is critical for maintaining health and well-being among the medically ill and people living with disabilities. Access to appropriate supportive care technologies and home health care services depends in part on where homes are located, what sorts of spaces are available for care in the home, and whether basic services (such as utilities) are reliable. These aspects of home environments are difficult to measure, even when features of homes are narrowly defined and only a single attribute, such as safety, is considered
