Climate change is, undoubtedly, the greatest challenge that people across the globe will be facing in the upcoming century. The EU has committed to becoming climate-neutral by 2050, and its ambitious Green Deal package covers several policy areas, and all key industrial sectors.
And while it is clear why greening the economy has become a strategic priority, developing practical means of achieving net-zero emissions remains a difficult task. Furthermore, for the green transition to be achieved in a sustainable manner, social development must not be overlooked.
Hence, the road towards greater sustainability is far from straightforward, requiring knowledge, investment, and efficient stakeholder cooperation.
At Visionary Analytics, we provide evidence and analytic insight to foster a fair and just green transition. Our services range from developing methodological guidance and tools to undertaking extensive data collection activities to performing rigorous quantitative and qualitative analysis.
