One of the biggest challenges today is to reduce the environmental impact of companies and consumers. It is believed that by 2025, air pollution could be to blame for more than 6 million premature deaths a year. If the pace of manufacturing and current consumption continues, we could be putting future generations at risk.

As entrepreneurs, we have a responsibility to reduce our environmental impact and create sustainable business practices. Below you will find three industries that could reduce environmental pollution significantly.

 

FOOD

According to the United Nations, approximately 1.3 billion tons of food annually are wasted. Sustainable solutions that reduce the intermediaries between producer and consumer have had a lot of boom in recent years. Companies have focused on better predicting demand so that there is no more than what consumers require.

 

CLOTHING

Before being donated to charity, most consumer clothing usually ends up in garbage dumps. Companies contribute to this by encouraging consumers in these unsustainable practices. In many cases , more than what is consumed is produced, so new clothes end up in the garbage. Instead of manufacturing new clothes, companies should look for recycling and re-circulation options for products that are in good condition.

 

TECHNOLOGY

Our desire to obtain faster, smarter and more capable devices could be considered as productive from an ecological visa point. We look for speeds close to that of light in connectivity, phones are increasingly larger and other devices make our lives easier while we use up non-renewable resources.

Sadly, only 25% of the total technological products that are produced are recycled, so that new startups could start by looking for recycling and reuse options, as well as materials created from sustainable resources.

The more entrepreneurs take responsibility for caring for the environment by giving consumers more choices about what they buy, future generations will have more opportunity to enjoy a healthier world.
