Now and with high positive impact.
There amazing examples that we all can follow, where we can create value, save resources, save costs and have a very positive impact on the environment.
Companies can implement simple processes that led by experts can start a positive cycle of savings and with high environmental and economic impact.
In our experience, the process can start with the purchase of green energy on the free market, where we have seen savings in the order of 10 to 20%. Also starting to be more present, all industries and companies can, without investment in CAPEX or OPEX, use external investment - ESCO financing for the production of solar or thermal energy or lighting efficient/smart (LED type). These two examples can help to contribute to reduce more than half of the CO2 footprint leveraging even more in energy-intensive sectors that have more infrastructure/equipment.
The path to neutrality, net-zero or even a regenerative footprint is a more demanding challenge. For this companies that want to be world examples for humanity they should start with building and energy audits supported by research and development, with a detailed calculation of the footprint with the identification of the main processes in scope 1 and 3.
For amazing results, the continuous online monitoring is the key, with IOT and digitalization its possible to the determine human positive gamifications improving the resources efficiency and improve the behavior and good operational management.
Positive Benefits implemented, during 4 years, this methodology with Lusiadas Saúde.
Climate change increasingly negatively affects our Planet, the entire ecosystem and each one of us. It's really getting more and more complicated, where we see glaciers increasingly empty at higher and higher temperatures, countries like Australia and Portugal on fire or countries like India, Mozambique affected by devastating floods.
COP26 disappointed in terms of expectations, but reached a consensus with more than 190 countries, which includes the agreement and commitment of the USA and China, to be able to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, a commitment to reach 100 billion and dollars a year for climate finance for developing the most vulnerable countries and the creation of transparent rules to accompany the process in order to ensure transparency and reporting requirements for all Parties to track progress towards their emission reduction targets.
It is one that can bring hope to the hearts of our children and grandchildren but from recommendations to practices we all have a great challenge among us where we have to be united, aware and know what to do to reach or even exceed the results.
Positive Benefits is committed to incorporate this powerful tool in every project we work on, identifying which of the 17 goals can the project relate to and creating specific solutions to achieve them.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
