The Journey towards Sustainability

Everybody’s talking about sustainability these days and there is no shortage of ideas about it, what it really means and how to achieve it. However, there are a lot of sustainability myths that exist because of misunderstandings or false statements.
Myth: Carbon offsetting is the answer
Carbon offsetting is when the emissions you create are balanced by the initiatives you support which absorb the equivalent of your emissions. You may have seen companies say that they have a goal to reach net-zero carbon or become carbon neutral. This usually means that they are funding renewable energy.
However, it does not solve the issue that the company funding renewable energy is still producing emissions. This is a form of greenwashing and does not actually contribute to the global problem.
Myth: Sustainability is equal to recycling
Recycling is an important component of sustainability work, but it’s only a part of the story. A greater consideration is the long-term protection of the raw material.
In many cases, recycling may act as a plaster, but the real solution is designing out, reducing or reusing our waste.
