What is happening to the world presents us with the awareness of the vulnerability of our condition on the planet. We need to be more prepared and resilient, in order to take care of our future.
ASACERT firmly believes in the value of sustainability, for a safer and healthier world, socially and economically fair, concretely respectful of natural balances, to safeguard the only planet we have at our disposal, because “There’s No Planet B”!
This is possible only on condition that we have an adequate shared vision, clear choices for a development project that is up to the challenges of our time. As we respond to the emergency by implementing the necessary measures to make our societies, our health systems and our economy more resilient, we must not let other threats to our future grow: first and foremost the great climate crisis, fueled by an economic model linear with high consumption of fossil energy and waste of natural resources.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 169 sub-goals associated with them, constitute the vital core of the 2030 Agenda. They take into account the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and ecological. For the first time, a single policy document brings together sustainable development and the fight against poverty. To be effective, these criteria must be integrated with the ESG criteria – Environmental, Social, Governance – which make it possible to measure the ability of companies to adhere to those standards that are now considered necessary for sustainable and ethical development. ASACERT is committed to the dissemination of these criteria so that small, medium or large organizations are no longer evaluated by observing only their ability to produce money, but also in producing ethical results, such as social inclusion or environmental protection. There is still much to be done from this point of view, also in terms of measuring the data and the standards to be adopted to develop unique ratings.
In order to support the Sustainable Development Goals, ASACERT is among the creators of the “A Miracle” initiative: a music project in support of AWorld – the platform chosen by the United Nations to sustain the ACTNOW campaign for individual action on climate change and sustainability.
“A Miracle” is a song written by Ronnie Jones and Emilio Foglio, who is also its arranger, made in Los Angeles in the Drumroll Studio, with the artistic production of Steve Ferrone & Eric Thorngren. The video clip is directed by Riccardo Quaglio with animations by Nicolò Canova.
The extraordinary effort that is required of us must focus on a sustainable development project, capable of ensuring greater employment, a more extensive and equally distributed well-being, which can only be based on a decarbonised and circular economy.
In ASACERT we are convinced that the way forward for a stronger and more lasting recovery is linked to:
• quality production, increasingly green, inseparable from changes towards decarbonisation and the circularity of production, distribution and consumption models;
• sustainable agriculture, necessary for food security and other regenerative bioeconomy activities capable of revitalizing marginal areas and brownfield sites;
• cities to be relaunched with a vast green urban regeneration program;
• enhancement of natural capital, necessary for numerous ecosystem services and for the relaunch of various economic activities such as tourism;
• transition with low emissions and alternative fuels towards decarbonised, electric and shared mobility
• digital innovation, which can help improve work, study and care of our health by reducing our ecological footprint.
We are confident that Italian companies are able to anticipate the times by embracing the need to reduce the environmental impact through the use of natural processes, the use of green technology and innovative techniques, economic and social SUSTAINABILITY following the “17 commandments” for Sustainable Development (SDG’s). The heartfelt appeal of UN Secretary General Guterres was decisive: “We are on the brink of the abyss. We have no time to waste. The climate is changing and the impacts are already too costly for people and the planet. This is the year of action … Countries must act now to protect people from the disastrous effects of climate change. ” Time out for us, ACTION!
“When future generations judge those who came before them on environmental issues, they can come to the conclusion that they ‘didn’t know’: let’s make sure we don’t go down in history as the generation that knew but didn’t care.”
