What happened to the respite we gave the world?

Almost two years have passed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused irreparable damage at a social, economic, and emotional level to people around the world, these hard times brought a respite to the planet. A worldwide strike in the industry presented a 5.4% reduction in CO2 emissions worldwide. But this data was only a small joy, since according to data from a study published during the Climate Change Summit that was held in November 2021, in Glasgow, Scotland, by the Global Coal Project, an international consortium of scientists, global carbon dioxide emissions have returned to record levels.

Figures from the team of experts confirm that, in 2021, the percentage of this greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere will grow by 4.9%.

That is, one point below its highest figure, set in 2019. The main reason, the use of fossil fuels. Coal continues to be the biggest culprit in pollution and emissions due to oil have increased by 4.4%, somewhat below pre-Covid figures, although according to the Global Carbon Project they may still rebound as "the transport sector has not recovered still pre-crisis levels”.

Fatih Birol, executive director of the IEA has assured “The rebound in global carbon emissions is a stark warning that not enough is being done to accelerate clean energy transitions around the world. If governments do not act quickly with the right energy policies, this could jeopardize the world's historic opportunity to make 2019 the final peak in global emissions”, said Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the IEA.

For this reason, at Grupo Tical, we work to have a better world.


The pandemic has brought many changes in recent years, streamlining, and improving business, going from a physical location to a digital one, which impacts finances and the dynamics of commerce.

• Greater and better access to the market

Conventional physical stores have been affected, especially during the pandemic. That is why we have had an increase in virtual stores as part of the solution.

A physical store has access to the local market, e-commerce has the facility that the public of any place can purchase the product without having to move from their home or workplace. There is no region limit or target audience, especially since e-commerce gives the product visibility.

• International reach

Creating an e-commerce with IONOS facilitates the internationalization of the company, since there is no need to expand physically, since you can sell in other countries through a virtual store.

• Sales independent of the schedule

Another very important advantage of virtual stores is that there is no time limit, they work 24/7, 365 days a year, which allows generating sales at all times, increasing them.

• Flexibility

Virtual stores or e-commerce do not know about time or space, they offer that flexibility to both customers and the business.

• Reduction of personnel and costs

Virtual stores or e-commerce do not require a fixed location, or people who serve the public, which allows a great reduction in costs and facilitates sales logistics.
