Clean energy, renewable energy and circular economyThe world has been developed and driven by capitalism for more than two centuries. Business and industrial sectors have competed freely to produce products which meet consumer demand. The more the world population grows, the more natural resources are used. Boundless consumption does not only make natural resources scarce but affects the world and environment in many ways. That gives rise to the problems of industrial waste, pollution and various residues in the air and waters, and causing severe natural disasters as a result of the climate change. These are problems creeping closer to us.
Crisis sparks global care trend
As those problems are becoming more critical, the idea of saving the world and the environment has emerged from the private and public sectors. Conducting a business in a socially responsible manner has become a new standard for businesses around the world.
That spurs the technological development which focuses on the cost-effective use of resources by reusing materials, finding alternative energy sources and dealing with the pollution problems in an overall endeavour to become a Bio Circular Green Economy to reduce the impacts on the world in a sustainable manner.
