There's a reason Israel is considered a "start-up nation" with a tech sector that accounts for up to 40% of the country's GDP�and it's all about sustainability, Quartz reports.

"In Israel, sustainable development is not a frill or a buzzword; it is a necessity for improving the well-being of current and future generations," the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology says in a press release.

Israel also leads the world in the distribution of water technology, recycling 20% of its wastewater, Quartz reports.
