Since the beginning of mankind on earth Building construction has had very big direct and indirect impacts on the environment, on society, and the economy. The field of sustainable design has got the aim of balancing the needs of these areas by method of creating designs that helps environment society and economy. The main goals of sustainable design are to reduce wasting of critical resources like energy, water, land, and raw materials; prevent environmental facilities and infrastructure from making the environment worse in their life cycle; and create environments that are livable, comfortable, safe, and productive. As a normal result of human-beings live their lives there,buildings use resources (energy, water, raw materials. ), produce
#GOAL: Sustainable Community Development A major prerequisite in developing sustainable communities is having a clear and concise definition of what it really is. According to J.A. Elliot (2013), a community characterized by consistent development maintained over time can be perceived as a sustainable community. There are numerous preconditions for development that need to be considered prior to the mitigation of its impact, since it takes place in different areas and contexts. With this, a sustainable community is able to overcome the challenges it faces and remain socially, environmentally, and economically resilient through integrated solutions that do not hinder the goals of others.
The environmental status of the earth is being depleted exponentially every day, from the hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctic, the depletion / overuse of natural resources, and the diminishing biodiversity among other examples. There is thus a need for countries all around the world to practice sustainable development. The idea of sustainable development came about first in the year 1987 by The World Commission on Environment and Development. Sustainable development is defined as the ability to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability to meet the needs of the future generations. Sustainable Development is one which has become a very talked about topic in the society today.
The need of sustainable development was addressed as the consideration for future generations arises. When Industrial Revolution took off, it changes the manufacturing and consumption habit. However, after
One of the key aims of sustainable development is to develop the life chances of people. It intends to make the economy consistent at the global level by fostering employability. This paper attempts to testify the causal link between the English language and employability and hence sustainable
Sustainable development can provide business with an opportunity to innovate and a means to grow at each level and step of business operation. Making the right choices within a company, whether it is newly exposed to the concept of sustainable development or is already advancing its sustainability agenda, contributes to the company’s long term success. Collaboration among business, government and civil society is an essential way to deal with these issues that increasingly affect business. This includes gaining an understanding of specific social issues at the local level; developing low-cost technologies or business training programmes for local entrepreneurs and small and medium enterprises; establishing independent certification bodies to ensure sustainable management of natural resources and encouraging governments to establish international regulatory frameworks needed to handle global issues such as climate
The most effective way for a sustainable development is reducing the usage of carbon dioxide, replanting activity, increasing awareness among people and also by having conference among country leaders. First of all, climate change is the most daunting problem that humankind has ever encountered, and economic globalization is accelerating it. Climate change has been defined as the composition of the atmosphere which surrounds the planet which is altering as a result of the emissions of tonnes of polluting gases. These gasses are known as greenhouse gases from industry, transportation, agriculture and consumer practices. The atmosphere is gradually warming due to the thickening blanket of gases.
Harmoniously, the concepts and principles of sustainability should be applied to their energy saving, Human life is affected by the built environment; moreover, the negative or positive environmental influences affect the life of human being in a significant and considerable extent. The proportion of the population living in cities is expected to increase from 70 per cent in 2050 (Anthopoulos, L 2015) . Consequently, the sustainable building should have tremendous momentum. Respectively, the buildings and their activities represent approximately 31 per cent of global final energy demand, around one third of energy-related CO2 emissions, nearby two thirds of halocarbons, and almost 30 per cent of black carbon emissions (Felgueiras, et al.
Government policies in numerous nations have placed limited importance on challenging producers to examine there manufacturing processes and instead focused on altering consumer behavior. The emphasis of sustainable production is on improving ecological performance in fundamental economic sectors such as energy, transport, agriculture, industry and tourism as well as social factors such as welfare and health. By discussing tools and instruments the government can use to increase sustainable production, not only in the way the products are produced but also the effect it may have on workers producing the product and the resources that need to be used. The role the state plays in achieving production sustainability will be outline with some key elements on how it can potentially be effective. Mandatory
