Israel: Leading the Way to a Renewable Future
UNEP World Environment Day 2008

"At this moment in history when, for the first time, all of the people of this earth have to make a clear, seemingly difficult but really quite simple moral judgment about our future, the people of Israel can lead the way to a renewable future."
- Al Gore, former US Vice President, Nobel Prize Laureate, and Environmental Leader

Not only is Israel the only country in the world that entered the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees, Israel and Israelis are...

Spearheading the development of electric vehicles
Developing the world's first suit made from recycled plastic bottles
Establishing the world's largest solar park in California's Mojave Desert
On the forefront of "Clean Technology"

Not only are Israeli companies on the forefront of technological advancements in environmental research, the State of Israel has an entire ministry devoted to environmental protection!
