IV. BENEFITS OF GREEN COMPUTING Followings are the benefits of green computing: 1. Environmental Sustainability : Green Computing reduces the negative impact on environment by making use of green design, disposal and green manufacturing. 2. Better Resource Utilization Green Computing is environment friendly as it makes minimal use of resources in most efficient manner.
Green buildings have a very positive effect on the environment and on the economy when compared to regular non-environmental friendly buildings. Green buildings bring together a variety of practices, techniques and skills to reduce and ultimately eliminate the impact of buildings on the environment and human health. Green buildings often help sustain the environment through using renewable resources such as using sunlight through passive solar, active solar and photovoltaic equipment as well as using trees and plants through green roofs, rain gardens and reduction of rain water run off. Green buildings provide various benefits to the environment as well as to the economy. One major benefit of a
Business that uses these concepts of green marketing are both seeking to both protect and improve the environment (Ottman). This paper focuses on profit making businesses, although nonprofits can use green marketing. In Marcus Wagner’s work he talked about how it pays to go green. Through research of different markets the economy is important part of determining if it pays to go green. This is why the today’s economy is hard to change to green marketing (Wagner).
Secondly, comparing the normal street transit services like local buses or street vehicles that all together share the same streets, the cable cars are faster without any kind of obstacles and do not get affected during the rash hours or street accidents. However there are also some challeng-es facing the cable car technology and also improvements that needed to be done in the future. 6.1 Benefits of Using Cable Cars The benefits of using cable car technology are huge nevertheless we can categorize these benefits into four aspects as the following, environmental advantage, government advantage, social advantage as well as great benefits for the customer intimacy. The following parts state the benefits according these four categories. 6.1.1 Government Advantage • Cable cars system requires short time frame to be installed or implemented.
Countries all over the world are facing the problems of a high urban sprawl, the phenomenon that urban spatial patterns changes into large outward expansions of low density areas (Burchell et al, 2000). Urban sprawl has serious consequences to a good quality of live in the whole city. For instance the average journey time from work to shopping- or residential areas becomes larger because of the urban sprawl. This also leads to other side-effects as pollution and accidents, problems with the facilitation of public transportation in low density areas and many, many more. This negatively effects the quality of life, especially in US-city’s where this problem often occurs.
Long term exposure to noise levels above 75dB seriously hampers hearing and affects human physical and psychological. The noise horn sound from truck very loudly makes another vehicle driver shocked and causing accidents. Therefore, this will increase the percentage of accident at road and cause the congestion at
3.1.2 Green Innovation Green innovation is the exploitation, production, or assimilation of a service, production process, product, or management and system methods novel to the organization adopting or developing them (Kemp and Pearson 2008). Pollution, environmental risks, and other negative effects on resource use (including energy use) throughout its life cycle are significantly reduced by green innovation. Similarly, Wong (2013) suggest that the decreased environmental impact of firms is facilitated by green innovation, thereby enabling firms to integrate environmental benefits and meet eco-targets. Although the importance of green innovation has been discussed extensively (e.g., Zailani et al. 2014; Wong 2013), limited understanding on
Many factors need to consider in choosing the location such as saves money and resources by using existing infrastructure, protects air and water quality by reducing people to drive by make it easier to reach by walking or taking public transport. There is a lot of building in Malaysia that implement this green building. Some shopping mall, applied it in escalator. When there is no people used it, the escalator will stop and vice versa. Space U8 is commercial development that well known for this green building.
Cities with poorly designed streets and unfocused development result in urban sprawl. As a result more vehicles trips are generated, congestion on streets increases, and communities become more isolated and less livable as a result. Time spent by people in different types of modes negatively impacts their health from long sitting, stress from driving in heavy traffic, polluted air and less time for exercise (Bevan et al, 2007). In addition this is destroying the surrounded area and urban form since streets are widened in order to comprise more vehicles; polluted air affects historical structures and opposing the character of the place. Implementation of sustainable mobility within the streets can create more livable communities.
1.1 TOPIC OF RESEARCH TASK “The effects of the increased petrol price in Modadjiskloof and its surrounding areas.” 1.2 RESEARCH QUESTION How has the increased petrol price affected the Modjadjiskloof and surrounding areas (residents and businesses) during 2013 and 2014? 1.3 RESEARCH AIM To see how the petrol price increasing has affected Modjadjiskloof residents and its surroundings. To see if businesses can survive the petrol hike and if residents can continue to stay here. 1.4 RESEARCH HYPOTHESIS The increased petrol price has a huge influence on residents and businesses of Modjadjiskloof and its surrounding areas and they have to find ways to survive and keep up. 1.5 NATURE OF RESEARCH The research I have conducted includes interviews
