Our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a global vision for a more sustainable future. Sustainability is nowadays a priority, and business decisions need to demonstrate a commitment to sustainability in one way or another.
As a company, BiobiN is committed to fully achieve the environmental and social benefits of composting and turning organic waste into a valuable resource. Let us look at three of the SDGs and how composting meets some of the requirements of the SDGs, at least on a local scale.
SDG 2 (Zero Hunger): Soil health and sustainable agriculture go hand-in-hand. Soil supports our food supply; it is, therefore, important that we support the health of our soils. Composting is a sustainable way in which we can do this.
SDG 9 (Industry innovation and infrastructure): In South Africa, waste management has traditionally been reliant on landfill. We are seeing a shift in attention to innovative waste management solutions and technology to divert waste from landfill, exactly what we do at BiobiN.
SDG 15 (Life on land): Conserving ecosystems and biodiversity is essential for human health, the economy, and our food systems. We are very reliant on mother nature and the health of land ecosystems. One of the biggest threats to life on land is an inefficient waste management and pollution. To ensure biodiversity conservation we need to implement waste diversion and pollution control measures more so than ever.
Diverting organic waste from landfill is our commitment to protecting the environment and biodiversity from the impacts of inefficient and improper waste management.
