SGS At The Summit
Climate change is one of the most critical challenges facing humanity today. The growing global human population with its interrelated economic activities, forces higher consumption of the Earth’s fast depleting natural resources. The changes in the global climate system are being felt, with an increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather and climate events like heat and cold waves, heavy rainfall, drought, tropical cyclones and rising sea levels. While energy efficiency remains one of the most promising means to reducing greenhouse gases in the short term, energy conservation technology and facilities/equipment form only part of the approach to improve energy efficiency today , systematic management and the behavioural approach have become the core efforts to improve energy efficiency and save costs.
The World Engineers' Summit (WES) 2013 with the theme "Innovative and Sustainable Solutions to Climate Change" will be held in conjunction with the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) General Assembly from 9 to 15 September 2013 in Singapore. The Summit will include an International Conference and Exhibition on climate change, alongside another industry event – BuildEco Xpo (BEX) Asia – which will address sustainable and green solutions for the building sector.
