In this phase governments mean to set a course for net global carbon emissions to reach zero by 2050. A new challenge for companies that have to quickly change the mindset, the mission of their organization and the ways of working.
In Europe leaders have already planned a solution to speed up this transition. The NextGenerationEU (NGEU) fund is the European Union economic recovery package and it has been placed in order to face the crisis during the coronavirus pandemic.
