Impact Economy is proud to announce its partnership with the Network of
European Metropolitan Regions and Areas (METREX), leveraging the firm's
expertise in strategy, investment and sustainability advisory to advance the
goal of a more sustainable and effective economy.
Producing roughly 70% of worldwide greenhouse gas, cities and metropolitan
regions are in a unique position to address climate change. Given many
governments' ambition to achieve 80% emissions reductions by 2050, a decision
and strategy tool such as Regenerative Energies for Metropolitan Areas and
Cities (reMAC) is invaluable, covering the full spectrum of answers relating to
financial viability, technical feasibility and carbon reduction.
As official partner and sole promoter and distributor outside the European

reMAC models regional CO2 reduction and cost scenarios. This enables regional
stakeholders to take smart decisions to efficiently achieve carbon reduction and
profit from investments in renewables.
As member of the Clinton Global Initiative and strategy partner of R20
Regions of Climate Action, Impact Economy is actively seeking ways to maximize
impact in fulfilling its mission to facilitate the transition towards
