  1. 1. SUSTAINABILITY Copyrights CU Green.com July 2014
  2. 2. Mission of CU Green is to serve individuals and organizations interested in sustainable development of any work and product of livelihood needs by responsibly utilizing natural resources.
  3. 3. Markets and business cannot be saved by economics alone leaving the ecology and humanity. Sustainability is a business standard. Here are the reasons why organizations in market need a standard for claims of sustainability, need of disclosures and treat this as an ingredient of reliable forecasts of profit and growth. 8/7/2016 3CUGREEN.COM
  4. 4. Markets that have no credible and self evident approach of sustainability are seen with skepticism, loss of faith and threat. Even goodness is doubted and unfair practices delude consumers. Disclosure of sustainability by an organization is a necessary step to protect faith of customers in the market. 8/7/2016 4CUGREEN.COM
  5. 5. An informed choice is a customers’ right. High cost risen due to increasing liability and damages are not a solution. Buyers and consumers started to feel the heat already and, market uncertainty in recent years is a symptom of losing faith in economic exchanges and, depression. 8/7/2016 5CUGREEN.COM
  6. 6. It is no surprise that alarmed consumer and buyers started asking an explanation how is an organization socially and environmentally responsible, and products it produced are safe for the humanity and preserved natural resources. This trend is going to increase and be more precise. A relevant and realistic standard is an answer to these questions either needed or asked by stakeholders, and organization is ready with it, and its business relationship is never at risk.8/7/2016 6
  7. 7. From the point of view of managing sustainability, ‘proof of concept’ in a particular scope of work is identified which can manage or lead this change from unstable and risk situation to relatively safe and sustainable way of living. Work and products in market which are thus evaluated would have a promise of long term and undisturbed growth. 8/7/2016 7CUGREEN.COM
  8. 8. These would be ‘as natural’ or ‘zero liability products (with informed risk)’. On this promise, investment to initiate changes in market for a long term benefits are safe. It facilitates a roadmap as to how can these possibilities become a process with validation of its results, acceptance and understanding. 8/7/2016 8CUGREEN.COM

CU Green in this program of work aims to establish a framework for interested individuals and organizations - to self-asses this claim to sustainability, validate processes by bench marking results, - learn and collaborate among them and with other resources, - and economic changes in design of market for the sustainable development. 8/7/2016 9CUGREEN.COM

According to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), green-house gas (GHG) emissions from the industrialized agricultural sector account for 10–12% or 5.1–6.1 Gt of the total anthropogenic annual emissions of CO2-equivalent. Organic agriculture is a recognized proof of concept for sustainable development. This way of agriculture can offer reduction in emission, food safety, and savings of energy and water, and increase income by sustained soil health and productivity. 8/7/2016 17CUGREEN.COM
