The UN has set out a collection of ambitious interlinked goals that are designed to be a blueprint that will enable peace and prosperity for people and the planet. Partnering with sustainability initiatives like Pure Air Zone can fast track businesses to reach these goals.
What Are The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
The Sustainable Development Goals is an action program that is signed by 193 UN member countries. It addresses the global challenges that we currently face and lays out a blueprint with milestones to achieve a more sustainable future.
Why Is It Important to Partner With Companies That Help to Reach The SDGs?
The UN’s plans are ambitious, and rightly so – the race is on to not only tackle climate change and preserve our environment but also to end poverty, improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth.
Businesses play a huge role in helping countries achieve the SDGs but, considering the urgency, it makes sense for companies to partner with initiatives that can help them tackle multiple SDGs at once.
Solutions like Pure Air Zone do just that, effectively fast tracking the company’s sustainability effort and impact while contributing to the end goal of peace and prosperity for all.
Which SDGs do Pure Air Zones Meet?
3. Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Wellbeing For All
This key goal is calling to:
Reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination
Reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being
Strengthen the capacity of all countries, in particular developing countries, for early warning, risk reduction and management of national and global health risks
U-Earth’s vision is to make clean air a human right and should be available to all.
By becoming a Pure Air Zone, your business can utilise U-Earth’s technology to capture and digest every type of contaminant by leveraging bacteria and generating no harmful waste in the process.
Providing Clean Air as a Service through biotech Pure Air Zone solution keeps people safe in their surroundings and prevents pollution-related diseases to protect people from viruses, bacteria and long-term health issues.
9. Develop Quality, Reliable, Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure
Sustainable and resilient infrastructure supports economic development and human well-being, while making them affordable and equitable access for all.
Pure Air Zones support this notion by enabling worker safety and better quality production through energy efficient technology and ocean friendly products.
Cleaner air maintains wellbeing and increases productivity of on-site workers and avoids cross contamination. Not only do AIRcels and U-Lamps remove the majority of contaminants from the air using very little energy but the environmental and safety impact is also increased through the use of U-Masks by recycling ocean waste and giving people a sustainability asset.
11. Reduce the negative environment impact of cities
The UN is calling for a reduction in the adverse environmental impact of cities by focusing especially on air quality.
Outdoor areas can be made into Pure Air Zones using AIRCel 5000, which has the same air purification impact as up to 6000 trees*. Monitors can also be installed outside at various points, which can alert to any changes in air quality in real time, allowing for actionable insights.
*data calculated on performance in heavily polluted industrial environments
Outdoor Pure Air Zone screens are also an extra tool to raise environmental awareness and engage and educate the public while outdoors.
12. Encourage Companies to Adopt Sustainable Practices and to Inform People About These
This goal aims to encourage as many companies as possible to not only adopt sustainable practices and report on their sustainability impact, but also encourage them to create their own awareness of sustainable development and lifestyles among their customers, staff and visitors.
Becoming a Pure Air Zone gives companies the opportunity to show their stakeholders how they’re contributing to the wellbeing of their employees and community. Part of the service includes an Air Quality Dashboard, where data of the Pure Air Zone is gathered into reports, which can be slotted straight into sustainability reports.
Once qualified, they’re given a complete marketing kit that provides them with the tools to promote their business as a sustainability leader and are featured on the Pure Air Zone App – a mobile tool where users can learn about air quality, discover places where breathing clean air is possible and engage with a community of pure air advocates.
17. Encourage and Promote Partnerships for Sustainable Development
Companies that aim to be more sustainable do so with one goal in mind: to save the future of our planet. Partnering with brands that feel the same only doubles the impact.
U-Earth carefully selects sustainability-oriented partners, to whom we offer our technology in exchange for a commitment to disseminating pro-climate change messages and to educate audiences.
As a company, we also form institutional relationships with key organisations such as The World Economic Forum who actively promote sustainable development.
When companies become Pure Air Zones they’re given access to all the data and information they need to raise awareness on the urgency of air decontamination and to drive immediate actions
U-Earth invests in interconnected technology collaborations that align to SDGs and leverage data interoperability to coordinate cross-country initiatives that enable SDG implementations.
7. Universal and Reliable Access to Affordable Modern Power Generation Services
Becoming a Pure Air Zone allows companies to reduce their energy consumption.
Air conditioning systems represent 50% of the energy consumption of a building – a huge economic and environmental cost. By purifying the internal environments, U-Earth allows you to reduce air conditioning and in some cases even turn it off while ensuring the absorption of contaminants that are harmful to humans.
13. Implement Climate Protection Measures
Pure Air Zones directly contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases by absorbing many contaminants that belong to the greenhouse gas family, such as methane. They also have a lower carbon footprint by using eco efficient air purifiers over air conditioning.
Let’s Reach These Goals Together
It’s important to tackle as many SDGs as possible, but not all of them apply to every business. One thing that does apply to every business is breathing clean air, and it’s clear to see how much of an impact that becoming a Pure Air Zone can have on the UN’s ambitious sustainability goals.
