Rethinking resources

Two things our planet has in abundance: water and energy. Yet today, 40% of the global population is threatened by water scarcity and billions lack electricity or clean cooking fuels. The resources to meet these basic human needs are plentiful – but the way we harness them needs to change. Technology offers an ever-wider choice of solutions. Windpower has overtaken coal as the second largest source of power capacity in Europe and there’s growing recognition that waste water and sanitation waste should be recycled, not discarded.

The challenge is to connect and enrich societies even further to ensure continued prosperity and sense of belonging in the global value chain.

Falling costs of electric vehicles and solar panels could halt worldwide growth in demand for oil and coal as soon as 2020.
