  • The world will have to invest $90 trillion in sustainable infrastructure by 2030, according to estimates by The New Climate Economy. These investments are crucial not only to renew old equipment in developed countries and bring them in sync with the fight against climate change, but also to bolster green economic growth in emerging markets and developing countries.

    The fight against climate change is one of the main challenges facing the planet today. To minimise its negative impact, the aim is to achieve a climate neutral economy by 2050. The transition to this will imply structural changes with a strong impact on certain regions, areas and groups. Such a transition must be fair, to avoid leaving anyone behind.

  • The unstoppable growth of big cities is a daily challenge for sustainable mobility. Thanks to the digital revolution, tools like big data and concepts like car sharing have become vital components in creating smart cities with high-performance mobility systems. Let's take a look at some of the key aspects in the future of mobility, the trends that will revolutionise the way we move, and the impact that the coronavirus pandemic will have on all of this.

They track what you eat, monitor your heart rate, warn you when you are getting stressed, and make it easier to communicate with those around you. They are part of your image - we wear them as watches, t-shirts, earrings and bracelets - and they know things about you that you don't.
