  1. Energy and Environment
More than 50 countries have made net-zero pledges, and there are numerous avenues to realizing that ambitious goal. One way humans can reach net zero faster is through electricity deregulation, which means energy suppliers can’t monopolize the energy sector. Countries with deregulated energy include the U.S., England, Wales, Portugal, and many more. By enabling consumers to choose their electricity supplier — a concept known as a market system — people can select greener options. But will they? Dig deeper → 3 min

Sustainable furniture isn’t just about the materials — it’s about workers’ wages, material extraction, and much more. From material sourcing to a piece’s end-of-life cycle, what are humans doing to ensure a greener world in furniture? Understand the vast world of sustainability in the future and how it will change the industry forever. Dig deeper → 4 min
  1. Politics and Policy
Whether an insurance company offers worker’s compensation or property coverage, it’s arguable each insurance entity has a responsibility to combat the climate crisis. On an enterprise and individual level, insurance companies can instigate expectations and standards concerning the reckless treatment of the environment. Enterprises represented by insurance companies could be participating in actions encouraging the climate crisis to worsen. Do insurance companies benefit from this relationship, and is it their responsibility to others who are insured to have stricter regulations? Dig deeper → 5 min

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emissions from ordinary household goods. Sources include paint, cleaning products, gasoline, and flooring. Side effects depend on the amount of exposure and VOC concentration in the room. Long-term exposure can lead to liver and kidney damage and problems with the central nervous system. Experts are concerned with VOCs in the air because they form ground-level ozone during reactions with nitrogen oxide. Some products are more friendly to humans and the environment because they reduce the impact of VOCs. Dig deeper → 5 min

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are a sustainable option for transportation in America, but why are there so few on the highway? How long will it take for them to become prevalent? Key highlights of the current EV market: America sold 7 million EVs in 2021, but EVs are only 1% of all cars in the U.S. Domestic manufacturers like Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford have unveiled plans for popular models to turn electric. Buyers are hesitant to buy EVs because of price, charging stations, and driving range. Some experts predict EV sales will outpace gas-powered vehicle sales by 2040. States like California, New York, and Washington have already set deadlines to ban the sale of gas cars by 2035. Dig deeper → 4 min
  1. Energy and Environment
The fossil fuel industry's harmful effects on the environment no longer hide in the shadows. Despite calls from climate advocates to reduce carbon emissions and transition to renewables, the oil industry continues its efforts to delay action on combating climate change. However, technological advancements — specifically energy storage — could signal the end of fossil fuels’ reign over the energy industry. Learn about energy storage's role in the green revolution, and what types of facilities are emerging to support the transition to renewables. Dig deeper → 3 min
