Pact of Islands: 2nd ISLE-PACT European Conference
The Pact of Islands is the political commitment of European Islands to developing Island Sustainable Energy Action Plans (ISEAPs) and identifying Bankable Projects with the aim of meeting or exceeding the EU sustainability targets for the year 2020. The project is led by the Outer Hebrides of Scotland (Comhairle nan Eilean Siar) and is co-financed by the European Commission, Directorate General for Energy.
62 Island Authorities from the 11 participating groups of European Islands in ISLE-PACT have already signed the Pact of Islands. 52 ISEAPs produced during the life of the project indicate that the European islands have significant potential to reduce CO2 emission by more than 20% by the year 2020. The implementation of more than 50 identified Bankable Projects can reduce CO2 emissions by more than 18 million tons per year. This is equivalent to 31% of the emissions of Denmark, a member state that has population equivalent to the population of the European islands. At this crucial time in the fight against climate change, the European Islands have a key role to play in developing sustainable energy action plans and we hope that you can join us at the Conference to learn from our experience and to plan the way forward to the year 2020 and beyond.
