Mother Earth is clearly urging for a call to action. After the Australian fires, today we face the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide.
Transmission of animal-borne infectious diseases is accentuated by climate change, man-made disruption of nature and biodiversity such as deforestation, excessive land use, intensive agriculture and livestock production and illegal wildlife trade. This shows the close relationship between mankind, animals and the environment.
Positive impacts have been seen in recent years with reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and better air quality, but much greater efforts are required from us. At Prodesign, we try our best to engage in sustainable design and green buildings. We promote zero carbon emissions, lower energy consumption and the use of renewable energy sources. We will continue to research new ways and methods to make a contribution to a more sustainable building industry. We have also adopted green and sustainable practices at the office, promoting reduction of energy usage and recycling. With LEED certifications and BREEAM communities, our aim is to bring to property developers the correct insights and possibilities to create better buildings and communities. We include in various of our projects green spaces to restore natural environment.
This year’s Earth Day coincides with the Super Year of Biodiversity. With the current COVID-19 scenario, our immediate priority is to prevent its spread, but in long-term, it is important to tackle habitat and biodiversity loss, along with the continuing battle to prevent climate change.
