Economic & Environmental Sustainability

Bowman & Associates is determined to develop environmental and economically sustainable strategies for your business to benefit and prosper from. We have experience in developing strategies which reduce the impact on the environment, reduce the cost of operations and comply with all government legislation, goals and aims.

Bowman & Associates is becoming increasingly concerned about the rate in which people, companies and countries around the world are consuming. We like to design our projects with the concept of sustainability in mind, by improving a company’s waste management with a new recycling or disposal service which may include recycling glass, food waste, paper and cardboard, plastic bottles etc.

The challenge for sustainability as a whole is to curb and manage consumption while raising the standard of living of the developing world without increasing resource use and environmental impact. This can only be done by using strategies and technologies that break down the barriers that link, economic growth with environmental damage and resource depletion.

Trending Towards Environmental Sustainability

It is apparent that as people in the developed world become more aware of and start practicing sustainability, the pursuit to refine the balance between the needs of people, the environment, and the economy has become more developed and more highly sort after. While sustainability has been widely taken up by many governments and businesses, they still depend on fossil fuels ever increasing the greenhouse gas emissions and degrading biodiversity. We at Bowman & Associates know what the options are, but somehow the majority of the people around the world do not make the changes that are required, so unfortunately many continue to proceed with normal business, without the desire to be innovative or different and hence produce unsustainable business results.

To ensure that sustainability is progressed worldwide, the management of human consumption of resources must be reduced. It has been suggested that three broad criteria can be used for determining  ecological sustainability. They are:

  1. Renewable resources should provide a sustainable yield (the rate of harvest should not exceed the rate of regeneration),
  2. For non-renewable resources there should be equivalent development of renewable alternatives, and
  3. Waste generation should not exceed the absorbing capacity of the environment.
