Protecting the ocean is key to fighting climate change

Trawler fishing releases as much CO2 from the sea bed as is emitted through global aviation. A different approach to ocean management would reduce these emissions, while preserving marine biodiversity and our supply of seafood. This requires increasing protected ocean area from its current 7% to at least 30%.

Floating solar farms generate electricity more efficiently

The cooling effect of water beneath solar panels enables them to generate electricity up to 12.5% more efficiently than rooftop or ground-mounted installations. Meanwhile, the panels’ sheltering effect from sunlight and wind protects the water from climate change impact.

Using space technologies to tackle climate change

Satellite technology has long been used for weather forecasting and preparing us for extreme weather events. Now, frontier technologies such as Space 2.0 systems are taking things further, gathering and relaying data related to climate change which, among other things, can help farmers improve yields.

No carbon neutrality without a circular economy

The current “take-make-waste” model is taking its toll on the environment. Only 8,6% of the world’s economy is considered as circular. To change the production and consumption models, urgent and ambitious actions are needed. Innovative technologies already exist but need to be scaled up.
