Title: Sustainable Energy for Styrian Parishes
The project “Sustainable Energy for Styrian Parishes” aims at two main targets: reduction of the operating costs by at least 20% and a reduction of the CO2 emissions. Starting with the task force Sustainability 84, parishes were integrated in the project. The directly responsible persons of the parish and the around 90 environmental parish council members have already discussed this project in many meetings. In the medium term a multiplier effect to the parish is assured. Regarding the economic impact, a strengthening of the region is expected due to contracting of services.
