Sustainability is a word that we encounter and read about on a daily basis. It thus becomes important to know more about the concept. Broadly, sustainability refers to meeting present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
Recently at the Climate Summit, US President Joe Biden promised to reduce US greenhouse gas emissions to at least 50 percent by 2030. Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi reiterated India’s resolve to also contribute its bit in combating climate change.
Our generation is leaving a massive footprint on the planet, rapidly accelerating global warming. Environmentally unsustainable buildings lead to fast depletion of fossil fuels, water, and other natural resources. Therefore, the need of the hour is to carefully manage the earth’s resources and reverse this negative impact.
