The Coalition on the Environment and Jewish life has received a an endorsement from over 40 Jewish community leaders to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 14% by 2014.  This is in addition to the Jewish commitment to seeing a national reduction to 83% of 2005 greenhouse gas emissions levels by 2050.

COEJL will assist each signatory in following through with their commitment by providing training seminars to groups such as the Union for Reform Judaism – one of the groups that pledged to cut their emissions.

“We have, as of today, 42 signers and we expect a lot more.  These are all community leaders and rabbis of Jewish national organizations, denominational movements, and synagogues.  In signing the declaration, they’re making a personal goal to reduce emissions by 14% by 2014,” COEJL Director Sybil Sanchez told The Algemeiner.

COEJL works with faith-based groups and local partners to advocate for improved energy and climate change policy, aiming to protect the environment at the local, state, and federal level.

“We’re part of an interfaith partnership where we share best practices with Evangelicals, Catholics, and Protestants.  We’ve been very strong on international climate change policy, specifically for the poorest people in the world to be able adapt to climate change,” Sanchez said.

  • I think all people looking to reduce their carbon foot print should take a look at this company!! SaviCorp’s (Pinksheets: SVMI.PK) East Coast sales team retrofit the Stallings, N.C. police department with the fuel saving DynoValve®, in the last months of 2011. DynoValve was installed in the 25-vehicle fleet, and is gaining a positive reputation with end users.

    “[My police officers] are the ones talking about the increased performance,” said Michael Dummet, Stallings’ Chief of Police. “My average mileage on my 2010 Ford Crown Victoria went from 19 mpg to 25 mpg, that’s a 31% increase. The DynoValve has increased the fuel economy; and the vehicles have better performance.”

    The sale coincides with the implementation of SaviCorp’s government-targeted marketing plan, which began toward the end of 2011. “I feel that we are building our reputation with municipalities,” explained Serge Monros, SaviCorp CEO. “It appears our government clients are now able to see positive results for themselves. And it’s opened up a whole new market to identify and fulfill their mandates for emissions reduction, and fuel savings.”

    SaviCorp is seeking to assist government agencies in achieving their federal mandates to make all government vehicles a greener and more efficient fleet. SaviCorp’s East Coast sales team operates out of Charlotte, N.C. through Advanced Auto Systems. DynoValve is the first and only, electronic positive crankcase valve (PCV) shown to reduce emissions in vehicles by 50% to 90%, with a by-product of reduced maintenance and fuel costs. DynoValve has an executive order D-677 from the Air Resources Board of California.

    “Anybody that’s green out there, that really wants to reduce their carbon footprint, this is the best product there is,” explained Monros in a live radio interview Thursday with Stock Trader Talk radio.
