GLASGOW AND COP 26
Cop26 in Glasgow in November 2021 sent the world a powerful message that ESG values are the beneficial base for affirmative corporate action and responsible investing.
The ESG values of today are the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) factors of yesterday and the clarion call for companies looking to do good, and for their customers and investors seeking to conduct business with socially conscious organisations.
The CSR sustainability agenda has since been replaced by the ESG values, which call for greater transparency and effort for the greater good. They are a collective consciousness for corporate operations and governance, instilling social and environmental values that define a company’s reputation and its commercial and legal realities.
They provide organisations with a shared set of social and environmental values, shaping corporate practices and public perceptions.
ESG standards can be challenging to measure and assess as they are qualitative, discretionary, and not codified. They build business resilience and long-term value but demand transparency and regular reporting to a range of stakeholders about a company’s socially responsible practices and their positive impact on the world.
SDGs – THE FORERUNNER FOR ESG values
The inspiration for ESG values and their forerunner was the collection of 17 interlinked global goals established by the UN in 2015 to achieve a sustainable global future by 2030, known as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Greening the Earth projects deliver pivotal action for SDGs that link our practices to the environmental, social, and governance values of ESG.
SDGs are the “why”
ESG values are the “how”
Greening the Earth is the “means”
Greening the Earth projects open the door for SMEs and individuals to embed ESG values.
Previously this was the exclusive domain of major corporations. You can participate by donation, sponsorship or engaging in our projects, spreading the word via social media platforms – or simply by shopping online with our browser extension (at no cost to the user).
Greening The Earth supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
SDG No. 1 - NO POVERTY
Greening the Earth provides jobs and positive business opportunities for rural and aboriginal Australians by increasing agricultural yields; improving land values and growing carbon credits that target the eradication of poverty – providing equal access to resources for communities living remotely on harsh, climatically challenged land.
SDG No. 2 - ZERO HUNGER
By achieving food security and improving water resources and nutrition, Greening the Earth addresses hunger from regenerated land that delivers improved grazing and crops for protein and nutrient rich allergen-free food and fodder for better management of natural resources.
SDG No. 3 – GOOD HEALTH
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all is achieved by processing protein, vitamin and antioxidant-rich ingredients as supplements for food additives and animal feed for improved diet for better health for humankind.
SDG N0. 4 – QUALITY EDUCATION
Improved prosperity ensures communal wealth and inclusive and equitable education for remote and disadvantaged communities by redirecting financial resources towards more teachers; better training and completion of secondary school with access to scholarships and retraining and permanent jobs for those with disabilities and for minority groups.
SDG No. 5 – GENDER EQUALITY
Achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls is derived from a holistic series of social programs and improved education opportunities for widespread employment for all genders with diverse abilities – emphasising community involvement and gender equality that ends discrimination against women from gender-based practices.
SDG No. 6 – CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensuring available and sustainable management of water and sanitation by reducing the volume of potable water needed for crop irrigation – saving on water resources for universal and equitable access to water for domestic purposes for drought challenged communities.
SDG No. 7 - AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY
Ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and dispatchable energy is vital for success in remote locations thus research for biomass energy production that simultaneously generates carbon credits, can deliver net negative emissions energy available 24/7 without expensive energy storage needs.
SDG No. 8 - DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
Promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth means full and productive employment and decent work for all – derived from a raft of permanent new jobs from improved agriculture and consequential downstream economic and development opportunities that generate a host of co-benefits for a better life on the land.
SDG No. 9 - INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Building resilient infrastructure; promoting inclusive and sustainable workplaces and fostering innovation at the regional level, develops positive industrial programs with access to financial services for small businesses – retrofitting infrastructure for clean and sustainable technologies and providing innovative research and development in harmony with nature.
SDG No. 10 - REDUCED INEQUALITIES
Reducing inequality between communities creates permanent, new jobs and the opportunity for income growth from commercial practices for disadvantaged communities for valuable societal roles with wages at appropriate rates – regardless of age, ethnicity, or religion that includes superannuation entitlements for all.
SDG No. 11 - SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
Sustainability is a hallmark of Greening the Earth, making communities and settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable by delivering ownership to the communities of projects that deliver long-term self-reliance and empowerment.
SDG No. 12 - RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION
Sustainable consumption and production patterns in an environmentally appropriate manner for high quality, nutrient-rich and allergen-free organic products, improve living standards focussed on responsible consumption; efficiency of natural resources; waste reduction; tourism development and reduced alcohol consumption and substance abuse.
SDG No. 13. - CLIMATE ACTION
Combatting climate change is the essence of Greening the Earth – strengthening resilience and adaptive capacity to respond to climate-related disasters by offsetting emissions from regenerative agriculture as soil carbon offset accredited by Australia’s Clean Energy Regulator (CER) under grazing rules of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).
SDG No. 14 – LIFE BELOW WATER
Conserving and sustaining oceans, seas and marine resources from better land management practices reduces effluent runoff and topsoil loss – less marine pollution and sustainable coastal ecosystems and marine resources. The beneficial reuse of associated water from oil and gas mining improves farming and reduced residual salt cake and brine.
SDG No. 15 – LIFE ON THE LAND
Protecting and restoring the natural capital of the land by promoting sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, combatting desertification and halting and reversing land degradation, increases biodiversity and protects, restores and sustains the land for future generations – reducing natural habitat destruction and restoring depleted ecosystems.
SDG No. 16 - PEACE AND JUSTICE
Bringing people together for a common cause to provide solutions applicable on a global basis are fundamental aspects of Greening the Earth for peaceful and inclusive societies attuned to sustainable development which, in an era of widespread stateless refugees, can help to deliver unfettered access to fair, equitable and prompt systems of justice for all.
SDG No. 17 PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS
Strengthening global partnerships for sustainable development is the basis for a better world where participation by national and international leaders and policymakers represents a shift in mindset for addressing the global challenge of climate change based on the practicality of collaterally sustaining the world by Greening the Earth.
GREENING THE EARTH DELIVERS A BETTER LIFE ON THE LAND
Greening the earth delivers a better life for those who rely on the land, offering benefits that address climate change in addition to a suite of economic, environmental, and agricultural concerns by vastly increasing the amount of fertile land available for productive agriculture.
The flow-on effect addresses public health, social, and cultural issues for remote and indigenous communities, while generating accredited carbon offset that mitigates against global warming and claws back the adverse effects of climate change while supporting ESG values.
- A host of permanent new jobs and fair and certain, long-term offtake agreements from improved farming and economic and sustainability activity for a better life on the land for Aboriginal and rural Australians living in remote parts of the country.
- Improved farmland productivity and enhanced land values.
- Increased grazing and cash crops for high-protein food and processing as antioxidants for wellness and medicinal use.
- Reduced methane emissions from livestock.
- An additional income stream for farmers from the sale of carbon credits.
- Biomass opportunities for future renewable and dispatchable, net negative emissions energy – available 24/7 with nil storage needs and nil competition with food production.
- Better living standards from increased community prosperity and flow-on opportunities for improved amenities for essential services such as education, health, social, sport and cultural events and facilities.
- Fire retardant species – quick recovery from bush-fire and flash floods from soil management that protects oceans, rivers, and streams from effluent runoff.
- Reduced desertification and topsoil loss from the permanent revival of degraded ecosystems and restoring natural wildlife habitat.
As well as facilitating SMEs and individuals to embed ESG activity within their corporate or personal culture – ACCUs may be generated in a manner that is surplus to the number needed for an emitter to achieve carbon neutrality.
These surplus ACCUs can be applied to offset the carbon footprint of other emitters as net negative carbon emissions to address Scope 3 emissions.
