Environmental sustainability is simply everything that we need for our survival and well-being, either directly or indirectly. It creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations. Environmental sustainability has been a subject of great discussion in the past decade. As we have entered into the new decade it becomes more important than ever to keep up with and also invest in the latest environmental sustainability efforts.
In recent times, many industries are implementing new technologies and innovations which will help the environment. Below are the strategies that are currently being used which are setting sustainability trends;
Reducing dependency on fossil fuel
Reducing our dependence on fossil fuels is a very necessary phenomenon as they are the nonrenewable source of energy. Most of the companies like Google, Facebook, Wipro, and Godrej are using solar and wind energy turbines which are extremely promising. These devices are increasingly affordable, and will probably enable people to invest in renewable energy sources without having to spend much on installation.
The next in our series of sustainable trends attempt to mitigate the environmental impact of our diets.26 percent of the earth’s land is actually used for livestock grazing and one-third of the planet’s arable land is occupied by crop production used entirely as livestock feed.The "meatless meat" market is growing very quickly because most people don't care whether their burger or steak is made of actual meat or not. And, just like vertical farming in controlled environments, lab-grown meats can be produced within city borders, near distribution centers. This is all great for the consumer's health, our wallets and the environment
Regenerative agriculturesupports both plants and livestock production, is the more important game-changing wave of progress.Regenerative agriculture - defined as a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services - is an antidote to our current depletion of topsoil. It aims to capture carbon in soil and aboveground biomass, meaning that it can feed the planet while simultaneously reversing current global trends of atmospheric accumulation.
Consumer awareness and youth advocates
Even those who felt hopeless about politics voiced optimism of just how passionate the next generation of consumers and citizens is when it comes to climate change and marine plastic pollution. There is the hope of the impact this will have on companies and governments.
