Why the bio-based materials market is finally poised for growth
Why the bio-based materials market is finally poised for growth
This is now changing rapidly, reinvigorating the market. Demand is growing, driven by increasingly environmentally conscious consumers and governments’ Net Zero targets requiring consumer-focused product companies to achieve sustainability. Finally, technology breakthroughs are bringing down production costs for bio-based materials, while improving their performance to make them comparable or superior to fossil-based counterparts.
The rise of the energy community & its lifeline to the battery
Increased consumer engagement combined with growing availability of affordable, small-scale distributed energy resources (DERs), along with legislative changes, present opportunities for local energy community (LEC) initiatives, in which consumers can actively participate in optimizing their energy bills. These initiatives can protect consumers from high and extremely volatile energy prices. Moreover, opportunities are emerging for traditional and nontraditional market players to enable and facilitate these new community models.
Corporate sustainability – Using your ecosystem to sustain the ecosystem
It has been nearly 25 years since the Brundtland Report introduced the modern concept of sustainable development, highlighting its three fundamental components – the environment, the economy, and society. Yet since then, despite the many global, regional, and local goals, pledges, and initiatives, society has been largely ineffective in transforming discussions around sustainability into concrete and strategic actions.
The global AI arms race - How nations can avoid being left behind
Artificial intelligence promises to have the same disruptive effect on today’s global economy as electricity in the 19th century. This has led governments to focus heavily on how they can unlock AI’s potential within their countries. Based on in-depth research, this article outlines the current winners and losers, exploring what it takes to win in the global AI arms race.
