Sad Passing Of ENEX Legend

Enex is sad to report the death of Michael Bach who was Enex’s Deputy Managing Director from 1994 until his retirement in 2013.  He was 68. Michael joined Enex at its creation working alongside its founder Nic Jakob. 

A native German from Glatten the Black Forest region,  Michael still lived in Luxembourg with his wife Geli enjoying frequent trips abroad to escape the winters. Prior to joining Enex, Michael was the Head of News for RTL Germany’s Breakfast programming which started broadcasting from Luxembourg before being relocated to Berlin.  

All his colleagues and friends remember his positive and generous spirit.  Post retirement Michael returned to work at Enex on several occasions including during the terrorist attacks on the Bataclan venue in Paris. His experience was much appreciated and admired by all those who worked with him.

Can Covid-19 Teach Us How To Save The Planet?

After Biden’s win it looks like the USA will rejoin the Paris Accords to limit carbon emissions and reduce global warming. By itself that won’t be enough to limit climate change. In our ENEX webinar series we tackled what needs to be done and whether or not the response to Covid can show us the way to save the planet.

September 2020 was the hottest month ever recorded. Millions of acres in California have been scorched by devasting wildfires producing the region’s first ever ‘’gigafire’’. In Siberia, land normally covered in snow has instead hosted uncontrollable fires that spew carbon emissions into the atmosphere, adding to the still climbing toll of pollutants produced by human activity. Many scientists believe it is already too late to avert a global disaster.

But the Covid pandemic has shown us how society can rapidly change and adapt to new realities. Pollution levels plummeted during lockdown. Efforts to build more sustainable and green economies have been accelerated. When we emerge from the pandemic, will it have taught us how to solve climate change?
