The Green Growth Action Alliance was launched at the B20 Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico this past week in order to motivate the environmental development of the economy. Ditlev Engel, the President and CEO of Vestas Wind Systems, a Danish company dedicated to providing innovative manufacturing of wind energy turbines, co-chaired the B20 Task Force on Green Growth. Engel, along with this new Green Growth Task Force team, will spend their time promoting sustainable ways of living and an end to the use of fossil fuels as primary form of energy. Engel is joined by Fulvio Conti, CEO of Enel, in co-chairing the B20 Green Growth Task Force.

The Green Growth Task Force is composed of some of the world’s most influential energy companies who’re all devoted to changing the way businesses and the public look at energy use. Some of the businesses involved in the alliance include Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Accenture, Samsung, and Vestas Wind Systems. The creation of sustainable technological practices is one important way society can progress to becoming more environmentally friendly. Engel commented on the importance of sustainability by saying, “Green is the color of sustainability. It’s also the color of money. Through green sustainable growth we can transform an inefficient, polluting and high resource-consuming economy into an efficient economy, which generates the best economic results using the fewest resources possible.” Renewable energy alternatives are the way of the future and can help positively revitalize the economy and the spirit of the global community.
