Green Land – literally

May 16, 2008

As individuals, companies and governments are trying to cut carbon emissions, Trendwatching has identified that entire nations are trying to go green.

Last month this happened:

Norway, the world’s fifth largest oil exporter, stated that it was aiming to be carbon neutral by 2030, while Costa Rica aims for the same by 2021.

California (practically a country by itself ;-) aims to cut emissions by 80% by 2050.

Sweden claims it will be the first oil-free country in the world by 2020.

And last but not least, in Iceland, 99.95% of all electricity used is already produced by green energy.’

Imagine – all this experience, knowledge and enthusiasm – and we can learn from it!
