Most of the world’s energy is currently derived from non-renewable resources. As a result, a large proportion of the global population relies on energy that contributes to environmental degradation when it is obtained and/or used.
People’s reliance on non-renewable energy is reduced when:
- More renewable energy is available to replace non-renewable alternatives; or
- Others are able to meet their needs using less energy.
This Positive Pursuit encompasses any action which achieves such an outcome.
