Greentech & Circular Economy
Green technology, in short greentech, is any process, product, or service that reduces negative environmental impacts through significant energy efficiency improvements, the sustainable use of resources, or environmental protection activities. Green technology includes a broad range of technology related to recycling, renewable energy, information technology, green transportation, electric motors, green chemistry, lighting, grey water, and more.

The increase in global population and the climate crisis put us in front of an obligatory revolution: reshape our natural resources consumption. On the one hand we've the rise of demand in energy, civil and agricultural spaces, fresh water and industry productivity and, on the other hand, the raising shortage of natural resources to support such demand. New models of development supported by a breed of new technologies are needed: energy from renewable sources, water footprint reduction, reuse of resources in a circular approach, as well as cleaning the environment from the accumulated pollution are a few of tasks that Greentech is going to tackle. New business models, based on the participation of all the stakeholders, will flourish involving the final consumer that becomes co-producer.
Several objectives have been set: some achievable in a short time and others that will require longer.
