Abstract

With a growing population of one hundred twenty-six million (World Bank, 2018), Mexico is accountable for one hundred thirty-one thousand metric tons of CO2 emissions annually, which makes the country 13th largest producer of fossil-fuel CO2 emissions (Boden et al., 2017). Moreover, Mexico's plastic waste is also predicted to be twenty million tons annually (Lira, 2019). This shows that an increasing level of CO2 emission and plastic waste will impede the achievement of three vital Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) such as Climate Action (SDG13), Life on Land (SDG15), and Life under the Sea (SDG14). To achieve these three essential SGDs, Mexico's government should encourage and support green startups that are introducing environmentally friendly alternatives for the existing means of production and consumption.
