Sustainable business builds a better world

Monday, January 16th, 2017 von admin

The Business and Social Development Commission takes a thorough look at a challenged world in a report released today. It is called ‘Better Business, Better World‘, and it focuses on how joint action from the political, societal and business spheres is decisive, if the world is to reach the UN’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Among the key messages are that it is necessary to build sustainable business models around the global issues, if they are to be resolved in a sound and long-lasting way, and that the time for action is now.

“This report is a call to action to business leaders. We are on the edge and business as usual will drive more political opposition and land us with an economy that simply doesn’t work for enough people. We have to switch tracks to a business model that works for a new kind of inclusive growth. Better Business, Better World shows there is a compelling incentive for why the latter isn’t just good for the environment and society; it makes good business sense,” says Mark Malloch-Brown, Chair of the Business and Sustainable Development Commission and former Deputy Secretary-General of the UN.

DAB: Efficient re-use of rainwater

Friday, May 30th, 2014 von admin

Aquatwin_Top_di_Dab_Pumps_Aprile_2014Combined with rainwater collection systems, the new Aquatwin Top is a pressurisation unit which offers savings in terms of water and therefore energy consumption. The rainwater stored in external tanks supplies all services that do not require drinking water (washing machine, WC…). In domestic applications it is calculated that the daily water requirement is 150 litres per person, in particular due to use of the WC, for cleaning and use of the washing machine, for watering the garden and washing the car. Roughly 50% of this consumption can be provided by rainwater, and the use of this water provides an average cost saving of 50%.
