Measured by global standards, Europe has underlined its ambition to reduce CO2 ejection and to further realize climate protection by the signing of the directive 2001/77/EG by the European Parliament.
The joint states have implemented stimulation programs to achieve the national targets required for realizing the EU goals. The contribution of corporates using primarily renewable energy have so far been relatively modest. Due to increased competition, as underlined in a recent study by Roland Berger, the environmental industry will surpass the automotive- and machinery industries in impact and size by 2020.
