Bhutan provides one of the world's best examples of environmental stewardship

Bhutan is the world's only carbon-negative country; its forests absorb more CO2 than the country emits. Further, they export hydroelectricity to neighboring India. Bhutan has the highest area of land designated as Protected Areas (26%) and has the highest proportion of forest cover of any Asian country (72%). The safeguarding of Bhutan’s biodiversity is enshrined in its Constitution, which mandates that at least 60% of land remains forested. Instead of using the incomplete and misleading Gross Domestic Product to measure economic health (which encourages ever-increasing resource consumption), Bhutan uses an index called Gross Domestic Happiness, placing importance on the well-being of its citizens, and cultural and environmental conservation. If other countries had a similar commitment to protecting the environment, there would be no climate crisis or biodiversity crisis!

      I think Buthan should be taken as an example more often by countries around the world

                          This is quite encourage seeing people move forward in ensuring more Co2 is absorbed and thus reducing the pollution.
