TTC Service. – At least in the rugged Caribbean region, protecting the environment is take care about tourism and that is precisely what a firm called Green Recruitment Company proposes in the area.

According to its digital page, this company is a premium provider of global solutions for the energy and green technology sectors. It currently has offices on four continents and claim to have terminated contracts for their clients in more than 50 countries worldwide.

He has just announced the opening of a headquarters in George Town, Cayman Islands, in order to deal with operations of his specialty, that is permanent contracts related to renewable energy projects.

Beyond the activities of this international firm with a largest representation in Europe, the Caribbean, globally, currently needs the so-called green technology.

For example, farmers on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia are already pioneers of a “climate smart” greenhouse. The modality is very curious. A sample is that in its surroundings a Trinidadian designer turns coconut shells into glasses.

Such artists are currently considered as part of the growing “GreenTech” movement in the Caribbean. The requirement is to unite talent and technology to address the most pressing problems in that part of the world.

A definition of green technology is simply that it is being used to address environmental concerns.

According to experts, its application in the region is extremely diverse. Solar energy and biofuel are included.

Specialists attribute great possibilities of the GreenTech.

They see in it an almost unlimited potential not only to contribute to tourism but to broader goals such as the economic, social and environmental stability of the Caribbean.

Some Caribbean problems are considered serious, such as reduced agricultural capacity, inefficient and expensive energy consumption, and threats to biodiversity.

Green technology can be transformed into that panorama into a great tool to “repair” consequences.

It can be said that it is a Caribbean dream on the way to fulfillment

In 2015 transition to a green economy in the Caribbean region took a great step forward.

Then representatives from more than 10 countries in the region met in Kingston, Jamaica at the second Caribbean Green Economy Conference (CGEC), organized by the Government of Jamaica and the United Nations Environment Program with the support of the European Union.

Among the topics addressed were the impact of fiscal and macroeconomic policies, investment opportunities and new initiatives that the Caribbean countries had already undertaken to advance the transition towards a green economy in the region.

The analysis of the options and opportunities to establish a green economy network as a regional platform were on the conference agenda.

The purpose of the network would be to share national experiences and strengthen cooperation within the Caribbean.

“It is expected that this network will connect a vibrant community of policy makers, professionals and academics that focus on achieving poverty reduction and sustainable development through green economy policies” was a statement in the meeting.

Which seems to indicate that green technology has its Caribbean doors open.

And it won’t be bad. The application of this protective nature concept can improve the efficiency of energy, raw materials and water. And the environmental efficiency of tourism in general.

In other words, “decarbonize” the economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions; minimizing or avoiding all forms of waste and pollution in addition to protecting or restoring ecosystems, whose stocks are a matter of life or death.
