Sustainability News

Sustainability is a simple concept, but it is one that is incredibly difficult for societies, countries and governments to achieve. To help you navigate through the issues and stay informed, Wiser has created a sustainability news digest. Living sustainably means everyone on the planet making sure resources and conditions are maintained for the long term. This is because everything that is done by humans has an impact on the natural environment, positively or negatively. Sustainable practices are those that protect natural resources like water and other materials. Scientists believe that unless sustainability goals are achieved, population growth and increased consumption will lead to a strain on natural resources that will, at some point, become too heavy to withstand. Changes in society that are ongoing include environmental protection measures, the increased use of renewable energy, and the development of new green technologies. All of these topics and more are covered in the articles that feature in the sustainability news digest from Wiser. Sign up today to make sure you are always up-to-date.
