Mozambique has “the most environmentally friendly people in the world,”according to a ranking published yesterday by the British consultancy MoneySupermaket, which puts Ethiopia in second place, Zimbabwe on third.
“At the top of the list, people from Mozambique have the least impact of anyone anywhere – using almost 100 per cent green energy, producing almost no carbon dioxide and creating almost no waste,” MoneySuperMarket said in a statement. “Their only disadvantage is that they don’t treat any of their wastewater, so anything that gets poured away stays as it is.”
In Mozambique, 99.87 percent of the energy consumed is ‘green’, with carbon dioxide emissions around 0.1 tons per person and a replacement of trees felled of 0.07.
The ranking puts Mozambique as the cleanest country in terms of energy use, with good ratings for Ethiopia, Zambia and Lithuania too, and Portugal appearing 72nd.
At the other end of the scale, Trinidad and Tobago, the United States of America and Sri Lanka are listed the most polluting countries.
