An opportunity for Brazil to take the lead?
The urgent call for climate change: The planet's average surface temperature has risen about 1.18 degrees Celsius since the late 19th century. This change, driven largely by increased carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere and other human activities, has affected our various environmental equilibria.
Urgent changes to the global economy are crucial to avoid severe ecological disruptions as soon as 2040. Interestingly, the COVID-19 pandemic has offered the opportunity to rebuild the economy in more sustainable ways. Green spending and policy are building momentum as the regulatory environment grows more supportive.
Environmental agenda: The world is facing an “environmental credit crunch” with current standards of living and overall levels of consumption unsustainable in relation to the world’s limited natural resources. Part of the answer, is to embrace the opportunity to invest in the future of the planet to yield financial, social and environmental rewards. How can Brazil position itself in global carbon credit industry, taking advantage of its continental territory?
