It presents the ways to use the resources in a more efficient manner and to reduce damage of environment applying the ideas of various green startups like smart trash cans, the robotic systems able to sort waste and others. 2020 is going to bring even more ideas which will change our vision of the future.
Now we’d like to give the floor to a socially responsible international investor Rustam Gilfanov. He will bring his insights as to the future of green economy.
“Before, investing in green startups the businesses did not count on any income. That activity was a part of their marketing policy and corporative citizenship. Now, the things have changed. The green technologies have become in demand proving their efficiency. Now, such projects generate profit,” Rustam Gilfanov says. “If you apply green technologies, you reduce your operational costs and become more competitive attracting socially responsible consumers and adding value to your brand.”
The demographers speak about demographic crisis caused by increase in the world’s population. Now, there are 7.6 billion people in the world. And that amount will increase to 8.5 billion by 2030. By 2050 we’ll make 9.7 billion and by 2100 – 11.2 billion. The consumption will grow too resulting in increased volumes of waste. Rustam Gilfanov offers to use this information and develop the technological products needed to enhance efficiency of waste management.
He says that it would be right to pay attention to three trends within the framework of green technologies:
AI and the IoT
The artificial intelligence technologies are able to arrange consumption of the resources in such a way that the environmental damage will be minimized.
Promotion of green habits
On the market there will be a range of innovative services and creative products delivering green consumerism.
Better waste management
The smart trash bins will appear to replace the regular trash cans all over the world. It is so easy to apply special sensors which will inform the waste collection services about the time when the container is full and should be emptied.
Rustam Gilfanov underlines the importance of such trends as introduction of green habits, waste recycling, usage of renewable energy sources which should consolidate the society. This sphere should attract entrepreneurs who are ready to make the world a better place with help of technological progress.
