Atlantic Council: 2022 Global Energy Agenda ReportGeneral/ 20 January 2022
Resource Efficiency is Crucial for Sustainable Development
by JONATHAN MAXWELL

United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow called for energy efficiency improvements, alongside increases in clean power generation, as one of the last features included in the Glasgow Climate
Pact and topics of the conference. This is most welcome, but in the future, it should be the first item on the agenda.
