Revving up Energy Efficiency in China

财经Caijing Magazine - July 18, 2007


Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group, and JUCCCE Honorary Committee Member, says, "I am thrilled to be involved and a member of the honorary committee for JUCCCE. We need to find ways to get consumers, organizations and governments to work together to solve our energy problems, and JUCCCE will provide the vehicle to make this happen. China has the opportunity to be at the forefront in finding solutions to the energy problem that the world faces. I hope I can help to raise awareness of the work that JUCCCE does, and make everybody realize that they need to play a role."

Steve Papermaster, co-chair of the Energy Committee, U.S. President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (US PCAST) and JUCCCE U.S. Steering Committee Chairperson, has stressed the importance of maintaining a dialogue on energy between the U.S. and China. "JUCCCE has the potential to dramatically accelerate the clean energy and environmental agenda of China – and the U.S. – and therefore the world. There are many worthy initiatives, but few could hope to impact on such a large scale so quickly."

Gary Rieschel, Executive Director of Qiming Ventures, and JUCCCE U.S. Investors Champion, says that "JUCCCE has come together more rapidly than any inter disciplinary and inter government organization I have ever seen.  This reflects the urgency and commitment  of both the US and China in this effort."
He also says that "JUCCCE will both identify and suggest technologies for commercialization as part of its mission, creating a unique market oriented approach to address both the opportunity and crisis we face in this area."

Rob Watson, father of LEED rating system, and JUCCCE U.S. Green Buildings Champion says, "The public/private collaboration model represented by JUCCCE is the most effective means to promote market transformation."

Gary Nieman, VP & MD Asia Pacific, Owens Corning, and JUCCCE corporate sponsor says, "A key objective for JUCCCE is to drive step-change Energy Productivity in both Residential and Commercial Buildings, which collectively represent a large part of total energy demand in both China and the US.  It is a critical point, given that these building are with us for decades and the compounding effect of lost energy-productivity opportunities are with us forever.  We're both honored and excited to bring our 70-year history of product and technical expertise together with JUCCCE to help deliver real productivity and accelerate market adoption of global best practices."

David Sandalow, Sr. Fellow of Foreign Policy at The Brookings Institution says, "JUCCCE is impressive.  Its talented team focuses on projects that matter, helping tackle China's clean energy challenges at the ground level."

Frank Rexach, Vice President & General Manager, Haworth Asia Pacific, Middle East & Latin America says, "We are thrilled to partner with the most innovative sustainable energy non-profit organization in China, which is bringing together business leaders who are passionate about identifying practical and scalable solutions that will make a difference in China.  As a leader in sustainable office furniture, we view this association as an opportunity to reduce the negative impacts that construction and interior fit-outs can have on landfills.  JUCCCE is the ideal catalyst in bringing together all stakeholders in the furniture supply chain to address this critical issue."

Anthony Couse, Managing Director, Shanghai, Jones Lang LaSalle says, "Jones Lang LaSalle aims to inspire a more environment-friendly mindset among our employees and support our clients to drive sustainable development which perfectly aligns with JUCCCE's mission and work in China.  We are keen to contribute to JUCCCE's efforts and make a real difference in reversing the impacts of real estate development to the environment."

Margorie Yang, Chairman, Esquel Group, JUCCCE Honorary Committee member says, "As population, resources and environment becomes the most critical issues that concerns people and government, the founding of JUCCCE, aiming at accelerating the development and deployment of clean energy, creates a bridge between the US and China, for their investors, companies and governments. I'm delighted to be an Honorary Committee member and I am confident that JUCCCE will bring about deeper and broader opportunities for the cooperation between the US and China in the realm of clean energy."

Denis Thomopoulos, Hippo Works says, "It's an honor for Simon the Hippo to help JUCCCE spread the global warming message in China. This partnership is a great example of how JUCCCE has the ability to create creative partnerships to solve what seem like insoluble problems."
