Very interesting! I agree that the "catalyst" or facilitator should be an independent organization or any third-party entity. A good way to do that could be a market-based mechanism since you're talking about competition. The advantage of this approach is that price can be lowered as the number of competitors expands resulting in more affordable items. This independent organization should be in charge of the market activities. The market model could be something such as E-bay or the like. Paulo

Hi, Creating competition is definitely a motivation for everything. When it comes to going green it can also be used to get people more involved and motivated. I think you should develop this idea more. Rather than having an organization imposing the competitive environment, this should be trend that all the companies/ countries should follow. For this perception to settle I believe we need more than a year. Good luck, Gunesh

Hello, Competitiveness can bring efficiency and innovations that are absolutely necessary to tackle the issue of climate change. May be similar competitive should be run by national government. In fact it would like to mention that in India there is National Action Plan on Climate Change under which the government has make mandatory energy performance norms for plants operating in 9 energy heavy sectors. This infact is very similar to your proposal. Similar programs should be run where not only companies but individuals can also participate to have significant impact. Best of luck!
