  ISRAEL: CLIMATE OF INNOVATION

don't delete this line

Israel is on the forefront of technological development for climate innovation. From water innovations to AgriTech, Israel is leading the way to a more sustainable future. Scientists across the country are researching and coming up with new ways to address the global issues of clean water, food security, and renewable energy. Through the private sector, Israel has promoted revolutionary technology that will have a far-reaching impact on what the future looks like.

 

  COP 27

In 2022, Israel will participate in the COP 27 United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in Egypt. At the conference, Israel looks forward to working with neighboring countries to address the issues of rising temperatures and sea levels as well as to collaborate on projects for environmental protection and clean energy.

  WATER INNOVATION

Battling water shortage since its inception, Israel is now a world leader in water purification, recycling wastewater, and desalination. Around 86% of Israel’s domestic wastewater is being recycled and used for agriculture, serving as a prime example of how a global crisis can be turned into a great opportunity for progress. With many countries suffering from water shortages, Israel has become a vital distributor of water technology internationally. Watergen is one example of an Israeli company that has become the global leader in creating machines that produce drinking water from the air. Not only does the company address the scarcity of clean water in the world, but also works for the elimination of carbon-intensive supply chains and environmentally-harmful plastic waste.

 


  AGRICULTURAL TECHNOLOGY

Israel is one of the global leaders in AgriTech and has developed everything from drip irrigation which increases water efficiency by 50%, to genetically engineered seeds and biopesticides, to light-degradable plastics and computerized irrigation/fertilization systems. Other Israeli companies are developing sustainable ways to grow and produce food such as animal-free dairy products and 3D printed meat. Israeli start-ups like Future Meat and Aleph Farms are at the forefront of making the meat industry sustainable, efficient, and accessible without sacrificing flavor.

 


  RENEWABLE ENERGY & SUSTAINABILITY

Israel has gained international recognition for its ability to transform limited natural resources into sustainable forms of power and hundreds of Israeli companies are dedicated to developing sustainable technologies. One example of this is Xfloat, an Israeli startup that is developing solar panels which can generate electricity by tracking the sun using artificial intelligence while also freeing up land for other purposes. Israel has also raised its 2030 Renewable Energy target from 17% to 30% which will reduce air pollution by 93% & greenhouse gasses by 50% per-capita.

 


  COMBATING DESERTIFICATION

Over half of Israel’s land area is desert (around 60%), yet it is the only country in the world where that area has actually shrunk in size. Creative solutions developed by Israeli agronomists and scientists are helping to prevent soil erosion around the world and Israel continues to contribute to the global effort to combat desertification by sharing its know-how, best practices and technologies. Some Israeli companies that are combating desertification are Netafim which finds efficient solutions to save water and maximize growing conditions, SeeTree which can track how productive and healthy trees are, and SupPlant which can recommend to farmers individualized irrigation systems that save enormous quantities of water.
