We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.
– Native American Proverb
Micro-organisms are ideally suited to the task of contaminant degradation because they cultivate their own enzymes that allow them to use contaminants as food. The activation process of nature’s natural solution gets pre-boosted by infusing OXYGEN into the pollutants and minimizing the Chemical Oxygen Demand which inhibits the natural process.
Bio-augmentation is the addition of bacterial cultures required to speed up the rate of degradation of a contaminant. It enhances the performance of bacteria through the addition of bacterial strains with specific activities. Biological waste and wastewater treatment systems rely on microbes to degrade organic material in the biomass, where the microbes come into contact with organic material under controlled conditions.
Bio-remediation enhances the ability of indigenous bacteria to degrade waste in the biomass. Go Green Global rightfully own the formulas and manufacture these SOLUTIONS with selected strains of catabolic pathways to achieve targeted effects for various waste treatments.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 6
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of people around the world, an alarming figure that is projected to increase with the rise of global temperatures as a result of climate change. Although 2.1 billion people have gained access to improved water sanitation since 1990, dwindling supplies of safe drinking water is a major problem impacting every continent.
In 2011, 41 countries experienced water stress – 10 of which are close to depleting their supply of renewable freshwater and must now rely on alternative sources. Increasing drought and desertification is already worsening these trends. By 2050, it is projected that at least one in four people will be affected by recurring water shortages.
Ensuring universal access to safe and affordable drinking water for all by 2030 requires we invest in adequate infrastructure, provide sanitation facilities, and encourage hygiene at every level. Protecting and restoring water-related ecosystems such as forests, mountains, wetlands and rivers is essential if we are to mitigate water scarcity. More international cooperation is also needed to encourage water efficiency and support treatment technologies in developing countries.
World leaders gathered at the UN Millennium Summit in 2000 and signed the UN Millennium Declaration
We agree with the memorandum and strive to educate individuals about the importance of implementing the Millennium Development Goals ( MDG’s).
As reported by the United Nations, it is critical that the natural resources base and ecosystems are managed in a sustainable manner to ensure that people’s food requirements and other social, economic, and environmental needs are sufficiently met. Climate change, conflicts over access to resources, and increased water scarcity all pose a threat to not only environmental sustainability but also food security.
As such, millennium development goal 7 has 4 targets:
1. To integrate the principles of sustainable development into every nation’s policies and programs, and also reverse the depletion of environmental resources
2.To reduce biodiversity loss and achieve a substantial reduction in the rate of loss by 2010
3.To halve the proportion of the universal population without sustainable access to clean and safe drinking water and basic sanitation by 2015.
4.To achieve substantial improvement in the lives of a minimum of
100 million slum dwellers by 2020
