energy needs (transport, clothing, food, electricity, etc.)

Renewable Energy
made from resources that nature will replace, like wind, water and
sunshine (also referred as green or clean energy)

Smart Mobility
refers to a mode of transport that is associated with low or zero
emissions, can be bicycle-riding, car sharing, walking etc.

Offset Carbon
