Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, Argentina in the World Cup for climate change solutions
32 teams in the World Cup are now down to four. The home team Brazil is doing what lots of people expected and certainly 200 million Brazilians had hoped for - although they will need to go forward without star Neymar. Germany has made it to their tenth World Cup semi-final in 13 tournaments since 1966, showing their hallmark consistency and looking good against France. The Netherlands is following up its finals showing in 2010 with another run at the title. Argentina are looking to bring the World Cup back over the border in style.
When watching the games I couldn’t help but notice we’ve good some real stars here in the clean energy space as well. So I’ve decided to sum up what each of these countries are doing in decarbonisation to see how they stack up.
