As 2019 comes to a close, some clear trends can be observed. First, decarbonization has become more of a priority for governments and industries as a way to reduce emissions. Second, ensuring resources can be reused and recycled means the circular economy has also moved up to the top of the policy agenda around the world. Finally, as more resource extraction will be needed, the debate has also focused on how industry can do so in a responsible way; with some important initiatives being launched. Below are details on these three key takeaways from 2019.
Decarbonization is a priority
This year saw the move toward decarbonization become apparent as the world transitions to more sustainable energy sources and transportation. For example, the European Union finalized its Clean Energy for All Package that includes renewable energy and energy-efficiency targets and just recently published an outline of a European Green Deal that contains a goal to become carbon neutral by 2050.
