Why do you think climate change and sustainability is such an important topic today?
According to the latest UNFCC report, we have 8 years before reaching the point of no return in term of climate change . The emergency is very real and tangible and unless we change our production modes, we will be facing the biggest crisis that humanity has ever faced: A climate chain reaction of events that will be unstoppable, no matter what we do.
This is why It is extremely crucial to act now , to reduce CO2 emissions and industrial pollution around the world. At Eden Global Impact Group, we have more than 380 clean technologies in all industries . We look forward to disrupt the current economic system by introducing our technologies and replacing all polluting ones with clean ones that reduce pollution and CO2 emissions. Its time to unite all agents of the private and public sectors to implement positive changes and save our beautiful blue planet before It is too late.
What do you envision your industry looking like 10 years from now?
It will definitely be the most powerful industry ,with so many investments and green funds being created and over 46 billions dollars invested in the next 3 years. The Green revolution is happening now and It is already taking over the world, so now is the perfect moment to invest in this market, create wealth and save the planet!
What can the average person do to make a difference?
We can all partake the change by changing our buying and consumption habits , by choosing green ecological and ethically made products. I also recommend that everyone joins an environmental group and start action locally in their communities. Investing in Clean technologies and sustainability is also a great way to intervene.
