Sustainable Development "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." (United Nations. 1987.)
Net-Zero includes strategies that emphasize taking a systems approach to reducing water, energy, and waste footprints in installations and communities. These strategies provide long-term solutions for sustainability and resilience by meeting the environmental objectives of clean air and water, and by reducing or eliminating waste sent to landfill, while ensuring the long-term viability of resources is not only maintained but also improved.
This movement is fundamentally influenced by emerging technologies that shape energy development. Such as transforming our buildings into engines of clean energy that mitigate Global Climate Change.
