The innovative tech industry in Israel has begun mobilizing to tackle the climate crisis. The revolutionary aspects of the Israeli start-up nation has often neglected the climate factor of their industry, but Naftali Bennet has made the climate crisis a new topic of concern.
When Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates met with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett of Israel on the sidelines of the Glasgow Climate Summit in November, they had a clear message to Israeli entrepreneurs: Climate change should be on their radar.
“Israel is known as the startup nation,” Bennett told Gates during their meeting, “and I think that it’s time we pivot and channel our national energy—which is the energy of the people, the brainpower—to fighting climate change. We’re going to take this as a national mission.” Via Fortune
