Background

The EU aims to be climate-neutral by 2050 – an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. This objective is at the heart of the European Green Deal and in line with the EU’s commitment to global climate action under the Paris Agreement. National programs and plans also reinforce this goals and all parts of society and economic sectors will play a role – from the power sector to industry, mobility, buildings, agriculture and forestry. So, pretending to act and modify on an import territory, it is important to plan, think and establish a strategy for it.

Challenge

The transition to a climate-neutral society is both an urgent challenge and an opportunity to build a better future for all. So, how can these problems be solved when applied to a territory as Baía do Tejo business park in Barreiro? What strategy should be adopted, by the territory, to combat climate changes? Which decisions should be taken in the field of ​​energy efficiency and renewables? Are there any effective ways to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable industrial and business park? Are there preventive measures to ensure this goal? Which effective orientations should be taken? How an industrial park should be built to meet Net Zero CO2 emissions goals by 2050? What typology of companies and industry should be attracted into the territory?
