Learn About Sustainability

Sustainability in the Food Industry

Sustainable food production and manufacturing will be an essential component of future sustainability frameworks. 1Terra works with clients who utilize forms of manufacturing that emphasize waste reduction, recycling, and energy efficient technologies. In addition, 1Terra works with clients in the food industry who source organic produce, which relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost and biological pest control, that contribute to the long term viability of food yields. These clients strictly limit the use of manufactured (synthetic) fertilizers, pesticides plant growth regulators such as hormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, and genetically modified organisms. Fair trade is also component of food sustainability as it promotes long term economic sustainability for farming and indigenous communities.

Sustainability in the Energy & Transportation Industry.

Several strategies will be important to short term and long term sustainability of the energy supply. In the short term, oil, gas and coal will be continue to play a role, as our economies have large scale dependence on these sources for energy and transportation. Increasingly, renewables play a role and 1Terra works with companies which emphasize energy conservation, energy efficiency, wind, solar, hydro, geothermal, biogas and other sources of energy yet to be discovered. More energy efficient transportation methods will also be explored.

Sustainability in the Tourism Industry

1Terra works with ecotourism and recreational businesses who promote conservation and respect the local environment, and indigenous cultures. In addition, we work with conservation organizations and government bodies with a mission to preserve local habitat, wildlife, wetlands and biodiversity for future generations.
