"Sustainable development is development that meets the need of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" - "Our Common Future", World Commission on Environment and Development Brundtland Commission, 1987
At the 1992 Conference of Environment and Development (termed the Earth Summit), members of the United Nations endorsed the principle of sustainable development - a way of doing things that meets people's current needs without damaging the prospects for future generations. In practical terms, this means we must strive continuously to protect and enhance both the environment and the economy. In 2002, at the second Earth Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa, world leaders signaled a shift in emphasis from broad goals to more detailed plans for putting sustainable development into effect.
In 2009, the oil and gas industry and governments at every level - local, regional, national and international - are engaged in dialogue about environmental, social and economic sustainability. People in government and industry recognize that sustainable development must respect the views of the stakeholders affected by policies, decisions and actions. Information and education play an important role in these discussions by ensuring that decisions are based on facts rather than mere opinions. Enviro Energy International is proactively working to increase sustainable development in China.
As one of the world’s fastest growing economies and a consumer of energy, China has a pressing need to reduce its GHG emissions. Enviro Energy International is committed to reducing China’s GHG emissions problem by focusing on exploring and developing natural gas (CBM) and implementing commercial viable Carbon Capture and Storage projects for enhanced energy recovery.
