Sustainable development of the environment
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT? Sustainability is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations, ensuring a balance between economic growth, environmental care and social welfare.
Sustainable development is a concept that first appeared in 1987 with the publication of the Brundtland Report, which warned of the negative environmental consequences of economic development and globalization and sought to find possible solutions to the problems arising from industrialization and population growth.SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT EXPLAINED IN 2 MINUTESIn this video we show you what sustainability is, its origin and its importance in trying to achieve global welfare for present and future generations.
Many of the challenges facing human beings, such as climate change, water scarcity, inequality or hunger, can only be solved from a global perspective and by promoting sustainable development: a commitment to social progress, environmental balance and economic growth.
Importance of sustainable development
Choosing where to live is one of the most important decisions you can make, as it greatly impacts your lifestyle. Therefore, it is important that you focus on choosing a place that allows you to feel comfortable and provides you with the best conditions to carry out your daily activities.
CO2 from automobiles is one of the main pollutants. Sustainable housing is strategically located near work, health and entertainment centers. This way you can use your car less, get to your destination faster and pollute less. You will save time and be much more rested.
A sustainable development maintains its value over time due to the high quality of the materials used in its construction, as well as its proximity to the main roads, work and recreation centers, and access to transportation.
The companies in charge of this type of development comply with current legislation on environmental issues and seek to acquire high quality materials with low ecological impact; they also use nearby suppliers to reduce transportation times and avoid unnecessary CO2 emissions.
Social sustainable development
Reducing CO2 emissions is an imperative. We are working to achieve this objective on several fronts: mass control, engine efficiency, improved aerodynamics, etc. Our objective: to favor efficient, reliable solutions adapted to different markets in order to respond globally to the challenge of the greenhouse effect.
Of the 170 kg of polymers contained in the new C3 Picasso (excluding tires), nearly 11% are “green” materials. We classify three different families of materials under this heading:
An environmental management system has been implemented at all our production sites. It is based on the international ISO 14001 standard, which is a globally recognized management and organizational standard.
The automotive industry encompasses various activities: foundry, machining, stamping, sheet metal work, surface treatment, painting, assembly, etc. Although the operation of these facilities does not represent “major environmental risks” (in the sense defined by the 1996 European directive called Severo), it generates a number of environmental impacts that we are committed to controlling as best we can:
Environmental sustainable development examples
The importance of the environment is nowadays undeniable and this has to do with the abuse and wear that human beings generate in an increasingly notorious way on the complex natural phenomena, which causes alterations that affect not only other living beings but also themselves.
The impact derived from these phenomena is expressed today in greater difficulties in access to drinking water, in the spread of diseases and the appearance of new ailments, agricultural problems, malnutrition, among others.
