Bill Clinton unveils energy-saving plan for 15 cities

05/17/2007
NEW YORK -- Former US president Bill Clinton on Wednesday announced a five-billion-dollar program to make buildings in 15 of the world's largest cities more energy efficient and help combat global warming.
The so-called energy efficiency building retrofit program involves Clinton's private foundation, four of the world's largest energy service companies and five of the biggest banks.
"Climate change is a global problem that requires local action,” Clinton said in a statement, unveiling the initiative.
"The businesses, banks and cities partnering with my foundation are addressing the issue of global warming because it's the right thing to do, but also because it's good for their bottom line," he said.
The program would provide funding for cities and private building owners to introduce energy-saving solutions that should cut energy use by 20 to 50 percent, according to Clinton's foundation.
