Investing in sustainable Future
Time has come to bring IT level of disruption in Technologies working on a Sustainable Future.
Agriculture is a major contributor to global emissions. The opportunity is to make farming less damaging to the environment, but also to find more efficient and productive ways to feed the planet’s growing global population, and also to get rid of harmful farming supplements. The investment opportunity in Agriculture is over $200 billion.
The need for transportation continues to grow rapidly, the transportation sector is a major contributor to pollution and greenhouse emission and this industry needs to move fast. The opportunity here is to make vehicles powered by clean fuel and make them go farther.
Demand for fresh water is rapidly increasing throughout the world. Climate change and depleting groundwater resources have also laid great stress on the accessibility of water resources. So, the big opportunity can be tapped by innovative solutions. Water has is an investment opportunity of over $150 Billion.
Waste and Plastics
India alone generates 62 Million tonnes of waste annually with a rise of 8% per year. Whereas, plastics cause $13 Billion in financial damage to marine ecosystems every year.
