Recently, Adidas Group had come out with Environmental Strategy to overcome the environmental issues from product creation, sourcing and manufacturing to own-brand store operation and other sales points. The main ways they can make a difference is to manage resources efficiency and manage hazards and emissions. Adidas Group aims to save energy and reduce carbon emissions at their administration offices, owned production sites and distribution centers. Besides, they save water used and as well as to reduce the use of raw materials by using more environmentally friendly materials. Next, they reduce waste and toxicity by using less toxic chemicals and through efforts to reduce the pollutants in waste water at supplier factories.
LiquiGlide improves the users’ ability to safely and accurately measure product dosage. With LiquiGlide, the measuring cup portion of Tip ‘n’ Pour containers will no longer have dried-on product from previous applications, providing a clear and accurate view of the measuring line. When the product is evacuated, LiquiGlide ensures that the complete measured dose is dispensed, leaving no residue behind. LiquiGlide reduces the time and effort necessary to triple-rinse agrochemical packaging. This will have a positive environmental impact as it reduces the amount of water and reinstate necessary to clean packaging prior to disposal.
This is because the firms and economies need green product to move rapidly towards a property environment. “End of pipe technology” is emphasizes where the firm are sensible to the ecological issues (Chen, 1994). The most powerful method to display environmental friendly technological development is the product designed to decrease the use of non-renewable resource, renewable resource, and avoiding toxic materials during its whole life-cycle (Chen, 2001). After that, most of the firms understand about the laws and regulations about the types and amount of chemical substances into the process of green products. The firms can satisfy the consumers’ with the high quality green products with decreasing the unsafe risk to the environment (Tsai, Chuang, Chao, & Chang, 2012).
Reduces global warming, it helps in that most of the harmful gases that deplete the o-zone layer come from industrial plants thus in recycling this is stopped as they produce less greenhouse gases 5. Conserves natural resources, by the term recycling which is basically to be used in the same or a different purpose again thus allows for natural resources to be used less. 6. Judicial and sustainable use of resources, the process ensures that there is no discriminate use of any materials when available in plenty in the
More and more business have adjusted their Business Virgin Atlantic is great example of a company that keeps trying to find new ways of improving the service they provide and to make it more environmentally friendly. “Change is in the Air (CIITA) primarily means using new technologies and fuels and efficient operations and maintenance to make our aircraft more carbon efficient, but it also means other things too, like engaging with others on the challenge of making our industry more sustainable; buying renewable energy for our ground operations; cutting down our ground energy use; making our ground vehicles more efficient; and reducing, reusing and recycling our waste. It also means looking carefully at what we design and buy, getting our colleagues, suppliers and customers involved and engaging with communities in the UK and internationally. Sustainability is very much aligned with our company brand values and we’re pushing on with the process of embedding it firmly into the way we do business” (Virgin Atlantic Sustainable Procurement Policy, p1) According to the Virgin Atlantic
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.
Strengthening the R&D in terms of safety is important to respond such issues. Also, continuous monitoring and assessment would definitely reduce the safety problems of Toyota. Thus, these increase the overall sales of Toyota minimizing the waste and utilize resources effectively and efficiently. Creative innovation and new ideas of line managers and employees is very important in term of safety since they work very closely with the production. The monthly review and weekly review meeting of line managers will obviously minimize the safety problems of Toyota
The activities that can be addressed for prevention purposes are intended to slow down / reduce the process of global warming. These efforts include Reducing GHG-producing activities and reducing the use of ozone depleting substances (BPO) by: (1) Reducing carbon emissions by reducing waste and waste incineration processes in landfills (TPA), agricultural areas , livestock and other areas (2) Promotion of sanitary landfill landfill development in the effort of reducing methane and carbon emission. (3) Prohibits or limits the use of tools that produce BPOs. (4) Creation and mobilization of the use of friendly tools environment. (5) Building power plants that do not use fossil fuels (PLT Air, PLT Angin, PLTS, NPP, Fuell Cell Power Plant).
It can reduce climate change impact from lower sulfur dioxide mono-nitrogen oxides emissions. It also can improve the quality of life. This action can reduce health effect, increase visibility of urban area as well as avoid costs of hospitalization and lost days at work from health impacts that due to the climate change. Also, it can reduce damage to cultural heritage including historic building in city centers because black smoke from traffic is a prime cause of discolouring of building. This activity can help the development of new and existing industries of the economy with the use of renewable energy.
220.127.116.11 Environmental Evaluation of SINTEF-BP Concept Cold flow concept generally promises positive effect on the environment and humans as it reduces the need for usage of chemicals (Larsen et al. 2003). With cold flow technology, it is also possible to transport the subsea production stream directly to shore, thus elimination of surface piercing structures (for example; production risers, production platforms like tension leg platform (TLP), fixed bottom platform, and Spars) that may influence the environment is possible as well. Environment can be affected if hurricanes occur and destroy the production risers which can result in pollution. Furthermore, this can result in the reduction in the number of people needed for deepwater offshore
