Net-Zero Transition

Simone Tramonte, Freelancer, Italy
The coronavirus pandemic has brought about the most severe economic downturn the world has seen in recent years. However, this crisis is an unprecedented opportunity for a shift that will propel the world towards sustainable living. Isolated and challenged by a harsh climate and battered by the financial crisis in 2008, Iceland has successfully transformed its economy. In a few decades, the country moved away from fossil fuels and shifted to 100% electricity production from renewable sources. This transition nurtured an ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship that grew profitable businesses with a minimal impact on the environment. Thus, Iceland has become a global leader in technologies that foster clean energy and emission reduction. This small nation indicates plenty of possible ways to tackle the global climate crisis and lead the transition to a net-zero sustainable future.
