Companies are collecting information about their water footprint by coordinating water definitions throughout their business and becoming more educated on how water is used in their productions and operations, along with tracking their water utility bills.
FREMONT, CA: Today, from investors, companies to individuals are becoming more aware of their carbon footprint and drive towards higher sustainability. Here are the key five sustainability trends:
Changes in Energy Production
Renewable energy is inexpensive, allowing businesses and individuals to invest in renewable energy easily. There is also an emerging trend of implementing micro-generation in homes, apart from promising large-scale solar and wind farms.
Drive for Water Conservation
Companies are collecting information about their water footprint by coordinating water definitions throughout their business and becoming more informed on how water is used in their productions and operations, along with tracking their water utility bills.
Companies and Climate Commitments
Many companies are setting goals to invest in clean energy, transportation and promote sustainability in their operations and global supply chains. They are also pushing for policy change in their regions and countries.
Lower Energy Consumption
Energy consumption is an important sustainability trend among businesses. Electric vehicles are used in freight transportation, LEED certifications are required for many buildings, and LED lighting has become common.
The Emergence of Green Microgrids
Microgrids offer access to a safe and reliable power supply for a growing population, even in places with power scarcity. The decreasing cost of photovoltaic (PV) and battery storage solutions have also made microgrid projects inexpensive. Green microgrids are becoming a popular solution, particularly with the global launch of many successful microgrid projects in commercial, military, industrial, and infrastructure sectors.
