Michael’s talk goes into depth about how the human footprint is leaving an ever-so clearer mark on our world and that the rate is only increasing. He explains how countless companies and businesses are not disclosing their waste generation in reports. If there is ever to be a change, it starts with Topolytics and the need for businesses to be more conscious and aware to track their commercial waste and emissions in order to become more sustainable to preserve our planet. If these actions take place, we will soon see the development of a new world, World 2.0.
