🌿Plant-based EV company Since Tesla introduced the first EV, the auto industry has been rolling towards electrification and sustainability. Legacy car makers have been adopting zero-emission vehicle technology as new companies emerge, setting sustainability standards. In addition, car companies like Ford and Volvo now use recycled and sustainable materials to make the interiors of their vehicles.
But you probably haven't heard about the most sustainable EV company in the world yet. The company is called LIUX, a Spanish startup founded in March 2021. LIUX is in the early stages of developing its first EV, dubbed Animal, which will also be the first-ever plant-based EV. Besides the vehicle's batteries, wheels, and maybe brake pads, every other part of the EV will be made with organic materials. No other EV company is that sustainable. LIUX has also started taking reservations for the EV. The startup will release the first model in 2024, which may sell for €39,000 or $40,274.

Energy summit One decision reached by world leaders at last year's United Nations Climate Change Conference, the COP27 was that they would establish and operationalize a loss and damage fund to help nations most vulnerable to the climate crisis. UAE will host this year's climate conference in November 2023.
The country held an energy summit last week in preparation. It was dubbed the 2023’s Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), and many leaders attended, discussing the theme “United on Climate Action Towards COP28.” While delivering the opening speech, UAE's Minister of Industry, Sultan bin Ahmed AI Jaber announced that at COP28, UAE plans to get the UN to start acting on decisions and plans on climate change and renewable energy. “UAE's ambition for COP28 is to be a COP of action. A COP where the global north and global south really listen to each other. A COP is where we move from goals to getting them done. And a COP where we deliver a new deal on climate finance,” said Jaber.
🧉A Cali trend A new cannabis movement called Cali sober started in the heart of California about three months ago and is now winning over millennials and Gen Zs across the internet. Is your first time you're hearing about the movement? Cali sober encourages people to live healthily by ditching alcohol and other intoxicants harmful to human health. Instead, people can have a balanced relationship and unwind with cannabis and psychedelics.
Cannabis leaders are behind the movement. They and many cannabis fans are also observing Dry January, a challenge to shun alcohol throughout the month. What's impressive about this challenge is that it sets people on the path to healthy living while also popularizing an emerging industry producing non-alcoholic spirits and beers. If you haven't been observing a Dry January, you can join now and make the few days remaining in the month more meaningful.

👍Uber's EV plans Uber’s ride-hailing and delivery platforms have been taking a new direction to zero-emission in countries, such as the United States, the U.K., and Canada since Uber announced its Green Future program in 2020. Uber said its fleets for both ride-sharing and delivery will be all electric by 2030. It plans to have 100% EVs in London by 2025. The company also provided $800 million to help its drivers transition to EVs and has teamed up with car rental companies like Hertz and EV charging solutions providers Wallbox and Greenlots to make the transition easy for its drivers.
At an event hosted by The Wall Street Journal in January, Uber Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi said Uber is also collaborating with EV manufacturers to design ride-share specific EVs. The company believes EVs with lower top speeds will be better for city use, so it needs them made for its drivers. They will also be greener and cheaper, thus ensuring Uber's electrification plan comes to fruition.
