The country relies heavily on green energy, its carbon dioxide emissions are fairly low
According to a sustainability report recently released by Robecosam, Sweden is, for the time being at least, the world's most sustainable country.Sweden has earned this title by relying heavily on renewable energy sources and by making sure its carbon dioxide emissions are as low as possible, Environmental Leader reports.
What's more, it appears that the country's governance practices, together with the mentality of its people, are centered on making sure the nation's ecological footprint is kept at a minimum and protecting local biodiversity.
The report further says that Australia, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway and the United Kingdom are also some of the most sustainable countries in the world.
On the other hand, countries such as Egypt, Venezuela, Indonesia, Russia and Nigeria got really low scores as far as environmental protection and sustainability go, the same source informs us.
