Climate Change

The climate crisis continues to be a risk all around the globe. The impacts of climate change are being felt across the world in a variety of forms, from rapidly declining ice cover to increased flooding, from extreme droughts to ravaging wildfires. WEF’s Global Risk Report 2021 puts climate action failure and extreme weather in the top three risks by likelihood. Therefore, reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy sources as much as possible is a pillar to postpone the climate change risk to the latest. The Climate Change challenge seeks to spot solutions that drastically reduce the impact of household products on climate change from an energy efficiency perspective.

Key question to answer:

How might we minimize individual carbon footprint by reducing household energy consumption?
