With all the public and private sector being fully involved in the process, an impressive number of environmentally-friendly activities have been pushed all around the destination, together with the accomplishment of many headways in the use of digital technologies, advanced research in the field of carbon sequestration, and the production of supporting equipment from recyclable sources.
