Speaking about the news, President and CEO of Capestone Darren Jamison said:
The need to shift to green has never been more evident than it is today. In fact, there is a strong argument to be made for a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The global pandemic has provided overwhelming evidence in showcasing the impact mankind has had on the planet. As a result of the worldwide shutdowns in Venice, Italy, the water in the canals were almost crystal clear, and in Krakow, Poland, people enjoyed the amazing view of the Trata mountains, which were no longer been obscured by smog.
“This movement to lower emissions and promote higher efficiency energy solutions should not be a political issue that divides us, but a social issue that unites us all to improve the environment while simultaneously saving money and creating more green jobs. The most valuable lesson this pandemic has given, is just how powerful we can be if we can all work together to find practical, cost-effective, and realistic ways to reduce our environmental impact on the world.
