By 2050, we could see nearly 10 billion people inhabiting Earth who will require energy in order to participate in the global economy. Today, coal still provides 40 percent of the world’s electricity. It’s also the most carbon-intensive source of power, with its CO2 emissions producing the vast majority of the world’s greenhouse gases.
I’ve received many questions over the past few months about Ingersoll Rand’s commitment to reducing energy demand and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Those questions intensified this week with news of the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change.
