About one year ago, European Commission Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans launched the ‘Green Deal:’ an ambitious climate plan to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050. The Green Deal's first goal is to reduce CO2 emissions by 55% by 2030 (compared with 1990).
Since then, much has happened. The whole world, our way of living, working, meeting and socializing has been impacted by the global pandemic, which has crippled economic growth.
“Never waste a good crisis,” as Winston Churchill once said. We shouldn’t. In 2021, we have an unprecedented opportunity to make the world a better, healthier, and more sustainable place.
