The change to sustainable energy sources is a necessity becomming more and more obvious to most humans. Unfortunately the change is happening too slowly in order to avoid a climate crises. We need to accelerate this change and act in many different areas - and do it now!
The good news is, that technologies in many sectors are so progressed that it actually is a sound business case to take advantage of modern technology. So acting and helping make the change, instead of BAU can often be of real financial benefit also.
4-leaf Consulting aims to support this through analyses, design and implementation of solutions and initiate and join projects in the field - mainly within the automotive and energy sectors.
If you consider why we have to do this then please spend 12 minutes watching this video of Elon Musk's speach ahead of the climate summit in Paris in 2015. and what by Elon Musk is referred to as the dumbest experiment in history!
If you want further perspective on how we got to this point in our society and the consequences, then "the brutal logic of climate change" (1h 17m) is both thought provoking and alarming!
