Environmental Wellness is the ability to recognize our own responsibility for the quality of the air, the water and the land that surrounds us. The ability to make a positive impact on the quality of our environment be it our homes, our communities or our planet contributes to our Environmental Wellness.” (“Wellness:Seven Dimensions of Wellness.” University of California Riverside, wellness.ucr.edu/seven_dimensions.html.) 2. Environmental wellness is being informed about the condition of the Earth on a global and local scale, and having a concern about the human impact on the environment. Being able to decipher what effect your actions are having on the environment is a great indicator of environmental wellness.
Our energy and climate strategy supports this goal and our primary objective is to promote investment in clean and efficient methods of energy supply. In this way, we aim to support our clients on their path towards a future with less carbon and more reliable energy. Our ecological footprint: Our global business activities require energy and natural resources. We aim to reduce their negative impact and minimize our own ecological footprint as much as possible. We are improving our eco-efficiency with an array of measures – from economical use of energy, water and paper, including green IT and utilisation of renewable energy, to replacing business trips with video conferences.
These two terms here are inter-related to each other. Usually, the main concern is about preventing the global warming in order to preserve the biodiversity. The factor that is needed to be taken care is the global warming and the result is the preservation of biodiversity. To make this clear, if global warming can be prevented, the ecosystem will survive. But, how about changing it to the opposite way?
What is Sustainable Development? According to the World Commission on Environment and Development presented in 1987, it states that sustainable development is “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Sustainable development is an approach to economic planning that attempts to foster economic growth while preserving the quality of the environment for future generations. It retains a balance between the human need while improving lifestyles of well being as well as presenting resources which are natural and ecosystems whereby the future generations depend. Thus, sustainable development takes the finite resources of the Earth which are limited in supply such as fossil fuels, animal species, and fresh water into consideration while
Sustainability Reporting Sustainability means different things to different people; therefore, a universal definition of sustainability is elusive. The most often quoted definition is from the Brundtland Commission (1987), which states that sustainable development is “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Sustainability is, therefore, more of a journey than a destination wherein ideals, values and measurement metrics are in a constant state of evolution. The quest for sustainable development started with environmental concerns, and climate change has now become one of the biggest developmental challenges. As the Brundtland Commission had discovered
Sustainable communities can be depicted as places where the needs of everyone in the community are met and people feel safe, healthy and ultimately happy our environment is appreciated, protected and enhanced and damage to nature is limited our economy is energetic, business openings are enhanced and our working lives are all the more fulfilling The concept sustainability explores the relation among economic development, quality of the environment and social equity. Policies and strategies for sustainable development should simultaneously promote continuous economic opportunities, enhance environmental fundamentals and focus on the social well-being of the community to ensure an evenly balanced environment. Policies have to advocate
Introduction: According to the UNDP Administrator, Mr. James Gustave Speth, "sustainable human development is development that not only generates economic growth but distributes its benefits equitably; that regenerates the environment rather than destroying it; that empowers people rather than marginalizing them. It gives priority to the poor, enlarging their choices and opportunities and providing for their participation in decisions affecting them. It is development that is pro-poor, pro-nature, pro-jobs, pro-women and pro-children". Many people including some of you never heard about sustainability or at least they don’t know its actual meaning until now. During the course of my speech you’ll be able to understand the importance of sustainability, the challenges in establishing it in Lebanon, the solution to this problem with focusing mainly on the environmental side which is the most influential nowadays.
Sustainable development has long existed, practiced and continuously studied to improve the balance between the environment, economy and social well-being simply because everything is inter-connected to each other in this universe. The most commonly cited definition of sustainable development was presented by the World Commission on Environment and Development in their 1987 report which stated,” Sustainable development is development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”(WCED, 1987). Its basic principle derives from economically sustainable system on the ability to produce goods or services without damaging agricultural or industrial production. While environmentally sustainable system must maintain a stable resources base by avoiding over exploitation for the sake of the ecosystem and of course achieving distributional equity, balancing social services such as health and education in term of socially sustainable system as according to Harris (2000). Figure 1: Concept of sustainable development (from Adams, Eric, Jerome Connor, John Ochsendorf, 2006) Figure 1 above shows the famous three ‘pillars’ concepts of what seems the interconnection between economic, social and environmental in order to achieve sustainable development.
