Sustainability has become a key topic for governments, businesses, and communities around the world.
Climate change and its impacts on the future are some of the most important topics of this century. In 2021, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as “COP26”, will
be held in the UK. COP26 aims to encourage countries to take action to keep global temperature rise in this century below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. A rise above this target is predicted to cause irreversible changes to global ecosystems.
While important, sustainability is about far more than climate change. It’s about managing the use of natural resources to support long-term ecological balance. This could include reducing deforestation, recycling precious materials
used in technology, or switching to renewable energy sources. Sustainable practices can improve the quality of life of people around the world and preserve natural resources for future generations.
Sustainability challenges can seem huge, but there are things individuals can do to minimise the impact they have on the environment and society.Back to Our Insights
