Abstract

The studies underlying the Paris Agreement and the Green Deal have outlined the impact of anthropogenic impacts on climate change and identified the need to pursue decarbonization pathways up to carbon neutrality. Climate change adaptation and mitigation decisions largely fail to address the behavioral and social factors needed to engage companies and investors, government, and community. Today's strategic planning and technology decisions affect emissions and sustainability for decades to come, hence we need to consider the production, consumption and lifestyle patterns to be compatible with the climate resilience; thus it has great implications for the global operation of the future. International and particularly European businesses are investing heavily in developing technologies to mitigate climate change and ensure Europe's carbon neutrality by 2050. Similar pathways are taken by other major economies. Among the key priorities for the development of the global operations development of an integrated approach in industry, energy, agriculture and construction along the entire life cycle chain, for example: “Industry 4.0”, energy and resource-efficient buildings and construction technologies, clean energy and energy storage systems, sustainable and smart mobility, food security, restoring biodiversity and ecosystem services, etc. The task of radical reduction of environmental pollution determines the need to improve the systems for observation and monitoring air quality, greenhouse gases and toxic substances, analysis of the impact of various emissions on human health.
