The E’s of Sustainability

Saturday, Feb 12, 2022

a requirement for success...

Defining sustainability is often a challenge. It has many different things to different people. The modern concept of sustainability was published in a United Nations commissioned paper in 1987. A much quoted phrase from the paper states that ‘Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable “to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” From this paper the three E’s of Environment, Economy and (Social) Equity have emerged as the foundational pillars of sustainability.

Volvo Penta recently announced that it was accelerating its sustainability aims in line with its goal to be a net-zero emissions company. To support this objective, the Volvo Group has committed to the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTI) and to providing technical assistance and expertise to companies who set emissions reductions targets in line with the latest climate science. Together with Volvo Penta we encourage and promote sustainable development and efficient product usage while lowering the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Three is the magic number for sustainability and a requirement for future success.
