As an individual, there is very less we can do to effect an organization’s decisions if we are not on top of the organization. If anyone of us is in place to do so I suggest addressing following steps.
1. Corporate Social Responsibility:
- In this social responsibility, the organization should spend money on awareness & promotion of greener lifestyle. Should set trends in it.
- Planting Trees, recovering marsh or deserted lands for forest, woods and/or cultivation.
2. Adopting long term change in operations.
There are four major activities of companies take.
Of these, energy and processing is directly related with such a way that switching from “current trends” to Long Term Economy, does not depend on the world to change first. For energy, recommend “Green Energy” and “saving of energy (smart use, insulation & window panels etc)”.
For processing, the emission, by products and industrial waste we can control. In processing we must ensure, the machinery is durable and efficient to energy. Energy consumption to output ratio must be as lower possible. This is the area, where new machines are being developed, but there is still a gap for new investors. Smart machinery helps to reduce toxic emissions but not necessarily. Toxic emissions can be treated to make new useful product and must also be neutralized before releasing in to air or water or ground. A water lake beside industry can serve better purpose if emitting gases are passed through it.
It is also important to know that every chemical is an input in one industry or the other.
Any more suggestions or comments are most welcome, as this article is written on “Gut-shot”.
