The energy sector constitutes a group of companies significant in the exploitation, storage, production, transportation, and distribution of energy. Engström, Lindeskog, Olin, Hassler, and Smith (2017) show that the energy sector has realized tremendous changes over the years. Notably, scientific\technological progress, social civilization, and ecological factors drive the changes. Several factors mark such changes. Patterns,
The latest report by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) indicates that the earth’s surface temperature in 2020 was around 0.98 Celsius warmer than the 20 th -century average (McKibbin et al.) . This exponential increase has been on record consistent with the effects being felt on the climate. Greenhouse effects are the major
Changes in global temperature, patterns of wind and precipitation are often referred to as climate change. The increased amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from mostly human activities have led to climate change which in turn has affected the ocean. This has led to the weakening of the ocean's ability and coasts to
Introduction Over the years, the production and use of renewable energy to ensure provision of sufficient energy to match the needs of the rapidly growing population has become the major focus of most governments and agencies. However this energy production causes growth in emissions of carbon (IV) oxide which in turn result to climate change.
Introduction “This generation has an opportunity to try put an end to poverty, and take necessary measures to reverse the drastic effects of climate in future. The future generation will suffer the drastic effects and judge us if we fail to take up the responsibility today”– Ban Ki-moon. Climate change has been developing rapidly over
Systems Thinking Is Critical In Developing Solutions To Sustainability Challenges Systems thinking is an integrated approach which can be applied to solve sustainability challenges which are usually complex as they involve environmental, economic, and social factors. Understanding and managing sustainability challenges requires a way of thinking that integrates these factors. Energy production is an example
Over many years, global warming has been a great concern in the United State due to the effects it impacts to the environment. This is due to increase in gases such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane and ozone in the environment. These gases leads to the atmosphere getting heated up during the day and
Sustainable Forests The era of technological advancement has brought about many changes in the world, one of them being the demand for more natural products. People have become very knowledgeable in terms of health, therefore, demanding that their diet be made of more natural products than before. The demand for healthy foods has put the
Introduction The UAE has matured over time beyond the ‘emerging market status’, but there is increasing concern over the preservation of the natural environment, which has become a top priority for the majority of governmental and quasi-governmental authorities. The man-made lakes, the islands, air-conditioned malls and constant irrigation aids in keeping the gardens green, but
Sustainable Development through Industrial Ecology Sustainable development has been defined as an industrial progress that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This is to minimize the destruction of the natural resources through pollution and depleting these natural resources. This involves the avoidance
