Finmag: An unequal fight with the USA. Czech industry must turn green to survive

Relatively unnoticed, in August of last year, the Congress of the United States of America voted to pass the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). This decision may be one of the most important steps in the fight against climate change this decade.
