Lesson Three

Reducing consumption (energy, products, paper, etc.)

The environment is necessary for our civilization and must be preserved in order not to mortgage our future; Science has shown that the uses and customs of today would lead to a problem of very difficult solution. Until recently, the company and the environment were confronted. This perspective has begun to change since the introduction of the concept of “sustainable development”.

Both company and environment are bound to understand each other, and this understanding goes through what we now call “eco efficiency” (reduction of the environmental impact in relation to the volume of production obtained). In order to achieve sustainability, we must respect the environment and not demand more raw materials than it can offer, that is why reducing consumption is sustainable but also helps to get benefits from saving, so it is a win-win situation.
