Droughts and floods have also increased in the G7 countries in recent years. These are undoubtedly the first signs of man-made climate change. If we want to limit the effects in the long term, decarbonization is absolutely necessary. This concerns a broad field and already has a considerable impact on safety and health at work: Renewable energies such as wind power, photovoltaic cells and biogas plants, mobility by new propulsion technologies (batteries, hydrogen) and circular economy including a better durability of goods and carbon capture and storage.
