The climate will be the main theme in 2020

13. January 2020

There is no doubt that climate change and environmental protection will be a very important topics this year, as were in 2019. What’s more, it is expected that companies and politicians around the world put even more emphasis on this in 2020.

Whether in the role of customers or as voters, people around the planet will speak strongly into the behavior and attitude of companies or governments. However, the original impulse given by the young activist Greta Thunberg, in particular to the young generation, will undoubtedly begin to change. The original reaction, perhaps even hasty, will be rationalized. People have realized over time that it is not unthinkable to call for an immediate transition to green energy, but that there is a need for careful planning so that switching to clean resources does not hinder economic growth. And in this, especially governments will be very happy to meet them.
Fighting climate change is one of the priorities of the recently elected European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen. In her candidacy, she introduced a plan similar to the US Green New Deal, which aims to reduce emissions to zero by 2050. Its enforcement will not be easy, because the member states of the European Union are not obliged to apply the plan, but will undoubtedly play a significant role in energy sources.
What can also speak a great deal in the next energy direction of the planet will be the autumn US presidential election. Indeed, democratic candidates have a strong positive attitude towards intensifying the fight against climate change, and if one of them really takes the presidential post from the hands of Donald Trump, we can expect significant steps towards carbon neutrality.
