Sticking up for our environment
Acting on climate change would boost the world’s economy by $19 trillion.
The International Renewable Energy Agency stated in a report yesterday that investing in renewable power and energy would boost the global gross domestic product by 0.8 percent by 2050. Maybe that doesn’t seem like a lot, but it is. Transforming the world’s energy sector would also create at least 6 million jobs. The report will be discussed at the G-20 Sustainability Working Group in Germany. Discussions start this week. [Independent]
