Caring for the Environment
We only have one planet and caring for it should be the top priority. The CCF is 100% committed to protecting the environment and all our actions are aimed at making a positive difference. No effort is too great in our quest of reducing carbon emissions, preventing waste and the destruction of the environment.
Our goal is to promote sustainable growth that allows us to fully enjoy the present without sacrificing the future. Caring for the environment implies the reduction of carbon emissions, enhancing biodiversity and improving water management among other priorities. A circular economy based on sustainable buying is the path to building a brighter future without making unbearable compromises.
Decades of neglect have led to a decline in biodiversity and the extinction of thousands of species. Many more are under threat, so restoring biodiversity and protecting existing ecosystems is a top priority. The forum and its partners are committed to supporting the restoration of bio diversity by investing in projects that promote the sustainable use of natural resources.
The task at hand is extraordinarily complex, but through collective action, the restoration of threatened ecosystems can be achieved. We promote and support projects that make an accurate assessment of the immediate and potential threats on biodiversity in sensitive areas. Together with our partners, we help companies stay up to speed with best practice in the restoration, conservation and enhancing biodiversity.
Water positive – Managing our most Valuable Resource
The importance of freshwater as a scarce resource is not yet fully understood. However, the consequences of improper water management are self-evident and the suffering caused to people all too real. Through partnerships with future oriented businesses and our dedicated partners, we promote water positive projects. Replenishing more freshwater than we consume is a vital step in building a sustainable future.
A more efficient use of operational freshwater should be one of the main goals of environmentally friendly companies. The latest technologies allow superior management of effluent, which has a two- pronged effect. On one hand, companies can decrease the water management costs, on the other they will prevent waste and make better use of the scarce water resources.
Circularity through sustainable purchasing
Sustainable purchasing is an essential ingredient in the recipe for reducing greenhouse gas emission. Consumption is one of the biggest catalysts for economic growth and reining it in can only be done without incurring significant financial losses. Circular economies and sustainable supply chains are the solution promoted by the CCF and our partners.
We strongly believe that by keeping materials in use for a longer period of time, we can decrease pollution and waste. Linear economies take a heavy toll on the environment and the transition to circular ones is overdue. The time is now to reconsider the manner we treat waste and switch to circular principles that allow the recycling of core materials.
Better material flow analysis and superior waste stream reporting help companies reduce their carbon footprint while reducing costs. Together with our partners we identify the best circular opportunities and implement cost-effective solutions. The effect is a reduction of single-use plastic consumption, recycling materials resulting from the decommissioning of operations and preventing water waste.
