While green technologies are not sufficiently proven, (Barnes, 2012). The new technologies that are implemented, they results in a great investment in a long-term by reducing maintenance and operation cost. Green buildings are built for a long-term use, and they are environmental friendly and built for economic benefit. Buildings plays a major role in harming the environment with pollution, therefore green buildings reduces this negative impact. (Angrisano, 2012 page 25) also supported green buildings, “As early as 1993, in an extensive evaluation of companies is UK and Europe, Hodgkinson (1993) notes that businesses increasingly want their flagship buildings to present an image of environmental friendliness in terms of energy efficiency, the use of building materials, and the impact on the wider environment.” Companies can also have a good relationship with the environment by constructing efficient buildings that are environmental friendly.
4. Sustainable assessment of a product: The products produced by industries have a marked impact on their environmental footprints. These impacts could be understood by the review of entire lifecycle of the product starting from the time it is conceived until the time of disposal of product after end of its useful life. The consideration of product life cycle should be given utmost priority in the organisational decision making because only at designing stage of a product which is to be sustainable, enormous gains could be achieved rather than even a thorough optimization of existing process. 4.1.
Of course, with a clear “green” label, you could easily find yourself in a more premium segment without having to spend as much as the conventional competition. Thus, as a business owner, you need to strongly consider making your tourist hot-spot a more sustainable destination. Here are five basic steps that any resort, hotel, or tourist destination could take to become environmentally friendly. 1. Reduce Your Environmental Impact Investing in energy-saving lighting options, such as CFLs or LEDs, can greatly reduce your energy bills with no inconvenience to your customers.
In addition, the study is to inform short and long-term policy decisions through system optimisation and design. The acceptance of LCA is getting wider in making policies. (Azapagic, 1999) Strengths and Limitations of Life Cycle Assessment LCA can assist in the following: • Improve the environmental aspects of a product at different ways during their life cycle. • Gives help to decision-makers to process in industry, governmental or non-governmental organizations such as strategic planning. • Selection of relevant measures and techniques of environmental
INTRODUCTION The issues related to environment safety and sustainability have gained significance all over the world. As a response to global warming, India and the other developing economies need to find solutions which result in economic and industrial growth without sacrificing the environment. Green marketing that is something that will continuously grow in both practice and demand and support in protecting environment1. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY This paper attempts to: 1) introduce the concept green marketing, 2) briefly discuss the importance of going green, 3) Examine present and future prospects of green marketing by the businesses, 4) Mention the challenges with green marketing. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY The present research paper is
But now, by the passage of time, steps are taken to prevent from this problem. Many organizations are working in rural and urban areas to aware people about the problems of environmental pollution and how can they participate in making their environment clean and healthy. These organizations provide guidance practical work to do. This report will demonstrate that how organizations are helping to better the quality of our environment and how industrializations, citizen and motorizations are trying to reduce the pollution. This report will discuss the problems caused by environmental pollution and solutions to reduce that problem.
The most effective ways in changing the unsustainable behavior is raising awareness regarding the importance of sustainable consumption through conducting lectures, research, and development. Goal number 12 aims not only at achieving environmentally sound management but also to reduce waste and limit emissions on air, water, and soil. Also, a good governance plays a crucial role to fight against corruption and develop appropriate policies that promote sustainable consumption. For instance, laws that support sustainable consumption such as
Through the green technology implemented, it would assist on the savings probable of RM1bil in energy related costs for users and RM5bil related to investments in utility infrastructure. Through the channel of sustainable development, it will save the consuming non-renewable fuels as a sustainable development highlighted on the use of energy efficient approach which saves integrated fuel consumption and lengthen the lifetime of scarce reserves. Most importantly, a sustainable development is required to conserve the environment through using the green technology to minimize the exploitation of the natural environment (Chua & Oh,
Singhal & Shrivastava (2004:331) has written that, “Interpretations of sustainable development vary in emphasis they give to the ecological, social and economic factors.” This emphasises the fact that for the attainment of sustainable development, the above three points should be joined. 2. Literature definitions of sustainability and sustainable development 2.1 Sustainable development: Definition 1: Sustainable development, as defined by the Brundland Commission (1987) is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. Definition 2: Sustainable development is, “improving the quality of human life while living the carrying capacity of supporting ecosystems” (Barrow, 2006:12). Definition 3: Singhal and Shrivastava (2004:330) defined sustainable development as, “a pattern of social and structural economic transformation which optimises the economic and social benefits available in the present, without jeopardising the likely potential for similar benefits in the future”.
Define the concept sustainable development and discuss a qualitatively different triple bottom line approach advocated by the underlining drivers for sustainable development Sustainable development is the development that ensures that the needs for present generations are satisfied without affecting the ability of future generations to satisfy their needs too (Brundtland Commission, 1987). The main aim of sustainable development is to control the current generations to preserve resources or use the available environment while saving it for the future generations, in simple terms current generations should use the environment responsible. Blowers (2013) mentioned that the environmental protection is the critical part of sustainable development
