The aim of that plan is to “contribute to improving the environmental performance of products and increase the demand for more sustainable goods and production technologies. It also seeks to encourage EU industry to take advantage of opportunities to innovate” . At it is said, the change is not only into consumption and production, but it also has to be in the economy. The system has to face the challenges of this new mode of industrialization and take into consideration the environment and its
New approaches must be discovered to meet the requirements of stakeholders by considering their inputs on their values and interests (Wim Ravesteijn, Jia He, Chaohe Chen, 2014). Responsible innovation is such an approach. It aims in initiating, designing, developing and managing innovation keeping in mind the goals, interests and values of all the stakeholders and even preventing and solving the value clashes between them (Van den Hoven et al, 2013). Responsible innovation is followed after sustainable development, which was originally defined as “development that meets the needs of
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
The task of the industrial sector in the newly industrialising nations has further aggravated the appeal and the driving urge for industrialisation for the third world nations. The fundamental convergent argument on development is the provision of basic amenities such as education, health, food, potable water and shelter to the citizens. It is also globally accepted that this task is better and more appropriately performed by public institutions. This underscores the crucial job of the government in the process of economic development. Public expenditure is supposed to stimulate the factors of production towards appropriate utilization of resources, enhancement of the value-adding capacities of the factors of production and thus generating the
Ho Chi Minh authorities are encouraging enterprises to boost research and development activities, as well as to adopt modern environment-friendly production models to lay the foundation for green growth in the near future. In Vietnam, green growth strategy is understood as one for development based on changes to the growth model and economic restructuring of local businesses. With the employment of green growth strategies, Vietnamese firms can take advantage of their comparative edge to enhance the efficiency and competitiveness of the economy through the study and application of advanced technology and the development of modern infrastructure. Those new development models will help local firms efficiently use natural resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions during production, adapt to climate change, contribute to hunger eradication, poverty reduction and boost economic growth in a more sustainable way. The city supports the trend to apply environmental safeguards in trade so as to limit pollution and reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions for some sectors.
One of the most effective ways to promote a healthy environment is by offering proper STEM education to individuals who belong to both the new and old generations. Remember, environmental education and protection are two things that aren’t just important to us (humans), there also important to the environment by helping sustain life as we know it. What role does STEM education play in the long run? According to Nelson Mandela, “education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” This means that STEM education not only has the ability to modify our society, but it also has the ability to change it completely by
Development in economic booms rapidly compared to past decade was a result due to a generation that pushed and adapted to the growth of economic as a means to improving technology, facilities, and humanity’s condition. Factories, automobiles, buildings and so on had created by generation in order to raise up the development of economic. This had brought many negative effects such as pollution of air, water, soil, and destroy the forest as well as natural sources and creation of toxic wastes. Therefore, environmental sustainability is required to protect and save our earth.Local authorities, government agencies, and engineers play the main roles to work together to address the challenges of environmental sustainability. If all these pollutions
Sustainable Development is a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The term sustainable development, firstly introduced in the Brundtland Report 'Our Common Future ' or the report by the World Commission on Environment and Development in 1987. It is a development attempt to alleviate poverty, create equitable living standards, satisfy the basic needs of all peoples, and ensuring that there are no irrevocable damages to natural resources and nature. The term of sustainability itself, has been discussed from the time of Malthus, who worried about how Britain’s apparently relentless incline in population could be sustained from a finite amount of land, to the sustainable development concept that tries to balancing economic aspects of the community with social factors and
It will build a strong network of rail and road corridor, modern farming, recreational areas, toilets, retail and manufacturing, including civic amenities like quality education and 24x7 electricity and healthcare facilities. The Introduction of climate change technologies will reduce the carbon footprint from industries and other sectors. Strong Literacy programmes will bring about a change in women, farmers, children and senior citizens. It will reduce the burden of the influx on cities, and automatically link local production with local procurement and distribution in a local network. It will increase the wage rates of farmers, women and other working class people of the villages.
All parts of our society, be it the government, business or individuals are encouraged to operate in more environmentally friendly ways, to aid sustainability for the world. This, we have to be clear on the significant role we play in delivering a sustainable world. It is such an eyesore to witness the sick environment that is happening around us, yet the society seems to be ignorant about it up until now. However, there are several methods that can be made in order to create an
