- Since NAFTA took effect in 1994, Mexico has experienced important progress in the development and enforcement of its environmental legal and regulatory framework. For the first time, Mexico’s national energy strategy includes a specific target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with burning fossil fuels by 2026.
- Mexico faces substantial environmental challenges and the market for environmental technologies is growing at a 6% rate annually, and it is worth over $2 billion.
- Due to many environmental factors (pollution, rising costs of fuels, decreasing prices in clean energy, and global warming), Mexico is moving towards a greener future and is seeking to become a world leader in the innovation of new environmental technologies.
