The Environmental and Climate Crisis are inextricably linked to Energy Consumption.
It is now widely accepted that recent human activity of burning fossil fuels and widespread land clearance has altered the Earth’s biosphere. A combination of these activities is contributing to unstable and unpredictable climate events. The climate crisis and resource depletion are inextricably linked. By solving the resource issues we also help mitigate environmental concerns. Hence, Rethink Consulting takes a holistic approach to solving many of the challenges we face.
