Iran ranks sixth in global energy consumption intensity

ISNA – Iran’s energy consumption intensity ranked sixth in the world, the Deputy for Education and Public Participation at the Environmental Protection Organization said, attributing it to the low energy efficiency in the country.
He emphasized that the predominant use of fossil fuels contributes to air pollution, urging all organizations to take responsibility and collaborate.
The official emphasized that contemporary environmental issues influence all aspects of human life, turning the environment into a social matter requiring across-the-board cooperation from all walks of life.
Nourallah Moradi identified air pollution as a current challenge stemming from economic and industrial factors, emphasizing its extensive social repercussions. Without targeted public participation, governments would struggle to effectively manage environmental issues, especially air pollution.
Moradi underscored the increasing public awareness of the detrimental effects of environmental hazards like air pollution on daily life, businesses, and health.
He stated that raising awareness has led to increased public demand for addressing air pollution through media coverage, especially on social networks.
He mentioned that January 19 has been designated as the day for “Clean Air, Education, and Public Participation”.
It is a reminder for public participation and social responsibility, and recognizing the essential role of education, cultural development, and information dissemination in solving air pollution.
The National Clean Air Week (January 16-22) aims to mobilize the government, private sector, and citizens to collectively contribute to achieving clean air for the well-being of present and future generations.
