CO2

Climate change and carbon neutrality are key challenges because they highly affect the future of us all. The urgency to act is highlighted by the CO2-related SDGs (mentioned below) and EU legislation accents the climate change mitigation as well, e. g, within the framework to facilitate sustainable investment (2020), where it stands as a first of environmental objectives.

As ¾ of CO2 emissions are generated by energy, transport, and industrial processes and construction, EnWin is looking for innovative companies especially from these fields of business and industry, which have a positive impact on greenhouse gas emissions.
