() - July 11, 2010 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Shell companies in the Philippines (SciP) joins the European  Chamber of Commerce of  the Philippines (ECCP) in leading the 1st Philippine Energy  Efficiency Forum 2010, a  one-day forum and exhibition  to be held on July 14 at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila.

The event is designed to convene key decision makers and business leaders  from the energy, commercial and industrial sectors and enlist top management commitment to implement energy efficiency programs at the enterprise level, including buildings and  industrial parks. It also aims to build strategic alliances among business, government,

international donor organizations, environmental organizations and other public interest  

groups in the Philippines and set a common climate action agenda in reducing carbon  footprint through energy efficiency.

The theme of the 2010 forum is “Enhancing  competitiveness through energy efficiency” and will highlight the following topics: Public-Private Perspective on Energy  Efficiency, Energy Management Technologies and Opportunities, Financing Energy Initiatives and Energy Smart Program Launch.

Speaking at a recent press conference on the forum, SciP country chairman Edgar Chua  discussed how Shell is working to meet increasing energy demand and supply challenges,  while addressing the impact on the environment, through cleaner burning natural gas and  advanced fuels and lubricants. He notes, however,  that the simplest way is by changing  our behavior towards the use of fuels and energy. Chua will be among the distinguished

speakers of the energy efficiency forum, and will talk of a ‘New Energy Future,’  one towards which the world is moving, and towards which Shell is contributing. He will map  out Shell’s contribution in four key areas: Energy security, energy diversity, energy  efficiency and Co2 management. In his presentation, he will focus on energy efficiency,  

that is, using energy more efficiently as the simplest and most cost-effective way to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change. Through its participation in the 1st  hilippine Energy Efficiency Forum, Shell enjoins consumers and businesses to use energy  better, to do more with less, and make energy conservation a way of life.
