Let me take you through a quick story on environmental sustainability. In the recent past, environmental concerns have hit the news headlines where everyone is calling for people to implement person objectives that will help to conserve the environment. Environment is very important especially to countries that depend greatly on rain fed farming. It is alleged that global warming is responsible for the world’s famine and droughts that have been reported in various regions. The use of pesticides, fumes released from the factory before being treated and fossil fuels have greatly contributed to the deteriorating status of environment. Environmental sustainability is the capacity of to support and maintain the environment while benefiting human.
There are various organizations across the globe that emphasis on the importance of sustaining the environment in order to curb the issue of climatic change. Climate and environment greatly depend on one another to ensure sustainability. There are three main key objectives that must be achieved in order to ensure environmental sustainability.
Each and every industry should ensure that they have met the international environmental set standards. Fumes from industries should be treated before being released in air. This is done so as to ensure that these fumes are converted to more harmless compounds so as to reduce their effect in the air. Industrial effluent should also be treated before being released on land or water bodies so as to conserve the water bodies and land and hence sustaining both marine and dry land life. Pits resulting from mine sites should be refilled so as to ensure that land shape is maintained and also prevent landslides. If this is ensured then factories and industries would have played their part in ensuring that the objectives of environmental sustainability are met.
The other objective is to provide alternative sources of renewable energy. This is to ensure that they the use of fossil fuels is reduced. This can be achieved by ensuring that the people are well educated ion the importance of the use renewable energy. Renewable energy sources tend to be more convenient their end products are less harmful to the environment. They are also cheaper as compared to fossil fuels as they are readily provided by nature. They also provide an alternative source of energy and hence reduce the use of fossil fuels. If this is achieved, then every person would have played a part in maintain the environment.
The other objective is managing of environment with both resources and financial investments. If a large number of people invest in environmental programs, they will be more concerned in the aim of making profit and at the same time benefiting the environment. Projects like harnessing wind energy and solar energy can play a very important role in achieving these objectives. This is because these projects will be offering alternative source of energy which is usually cheaper and convenient, that will replace the use of fossil fuels.
In conclusion, the above objectives should be met and maintained, so as to ensure that the world is taking correct steps in achieving these environmental goals. The government should also support these programs by reducing taxes on projects that are based on provision of renewable energy.
