This issue concerns both industry players and everyday people because everyone is involved. The issue is not only interesting from a technological point of view – innovations are emerging at lightning speed, directly affecting the functioning of the industry. Climate change is also a strong driver of change, as this sector also contributes greatly to emissions and needs to achieve significant reductions. Integration into the circular economy and intertwining with other sectors complicates the situation further.
This requires, as usual in the context of sustainability, a mindset change. It is encouraging that great initiatives are targeting a wide range of society and business. For example, LEGO highlighted the theme of transportation in this year’s First Lego League series and expects contestants from all age groups to offer innovative, nicely executed solutions to a variety of problems. And yes, it may come as a surprise, but even a 9-year-old kid can think creatively about the subject and come up with realistic, useful ideas.
And we are happy to share here the following call received from Siemens:
