Producing without harming the environment is nowadays the most demanded approach in any production sector. The environmental balance sheet of production in general is in a critical state, with greenhouse gas emissions, loss of biodiversity, over-consumption of water and soil degradation. The new trend is therefore to move towards ecological and environmental production. The question arises as to how to produce better and preserve the environment.
Opting for renewable energies
Production inevitably has an impact on the environment, particularly the use of fossil fuels. On the other hand, actions are possible to participate in the mitigation of environmental degradation while maintaining high productivity.
Energy expenditure for each production process increases the cost of production and has a real impact on the environment, such as the thinning of the ozone layer due to the emission of greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide. This situation leads to climate change and systematically harms the environment such as the disappearance of species that do not adapt. In addition, renewable energies such as solar energy, hydropower and wind power reduce the cost of production in the long term and help to preserve the environment. Recycled products thus provide a competitive advantage in terms of price-performance ratio for product sales.
Turning towards recyclable products
Human waste is a raw material that is in great demand to preserve the environment. Among other things, they contribute to the degradation of biodiversity in the world, especially species living in the ocean.
In addition, 75% of human waste is recyclable or reusable, especially non-degradable waste. This means that plastic, paper, glass, steel, copper, aluminium and other biomass waste can be reused or re-processed to produce combustible energy. Labels for the sale of recyclable products are very accessible and the consumption of the products contributes to the preservation of the environment. Recycled products have become a marketing trend due to the fact that they are cheaper and the consumers who buy them already participate in the preservation of the environment.
Thinking about ecological agricultural production
For the preservation of the environment, agriculture also takes a very important place not only in terms of its contribution to environmental degradation, but above all in terms of its potential to provide a sustainable solution. In this case, the aim is to produce agricultural crops that are both organic and environmentally friendly, such as the natural and biodynamic wine production system, for example. Consumers are turning more and more towards organic and ecological consumption which becomes an advantage in the sale of products and therefore more profitable for producers, but, above all, the preservation of the environment is popularized.
