An environment is a sole factor for the existence of life on Earth. The impact that human activities have on environment around us is undeniable. The rapid depletion of our critical natural resources due to overuse resulting in loss of biodiversity and climate change are unprecedented environmental challenges of our time. In the past decade we have witnessed surge in natural disasters across regions and extreme loss of life in natural environment, with 27,000 species are threatened with extinction in 2019 alone. To address these challenges, we need to modify our current consumption model and device a coordinated, comprehensive and timely response.
Most of the countries and governments have now come together to save the planet by conserving the natural resources, repairing the damages to reverse the trend. According to the World Bank the developed countries of the world make up about 18% of world population, yet use about 88% of the world’s resources and produce about 75% of world’s waste and pollution. Most of this waste ends up in landfills generating enormous amounts of methane. With forest fires, deforestation and huge amount of timber being harvested for commercial use, our forests are decreasing at an alarming rate.
We at FSI support various initiatives suggested by the government and implemented a few at our own offices. Our volunteers are also active participants of initiatives organized by World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Our Energy and Environment research yields a lot of valuable details on Water & Waste Water Treatment, Waste Management, and Energy Management which can be used by governments, NGOs to focus on the grey areas that require attention and develop a plan of action. Our Industry experts can also provide additional support by working on research & analysis with the governments, NGOs or other institutes and share our suggestions on how we can preserve & protect the planet.Environment
