Responsible Production and Consumption
With fishing tools becoming more and more effective, fishing activities across the globe are more intensive than ever. To maximise their profit, fishermen often go beyond what is environmentally sustainable. Fish populations cannot recover fast enough and in turn the sea’s natural resources are becoming depleted.
Sustainable fishing is the act of using fishing tools that minimize the impact on marine habitats and endangered species, as well as conserving the resources that are so important to human life.
“Develop and implement tools to monitor sustainable development impacts for sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products” – #Envision2030
Tourism will never be completely sustainable as every industry has its impact, but it can work towards reducing the negative effects on the enviornment.
– Give, the right way.
– Say no to plastic.
– Research your tour operators.
– Support the true local economy.
– Never buy wildlife products—period.
LIVE IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
“Ensure that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature”
Since you’re here…
Our mission is to monitor Advertising to make certain that companies obey ethical standards of trustworthiness and transparency while communicating their commitment to addressing the great challenges of the New Millennium. From climate emergency to social inequality through all the issues included in the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda, we monitor the consistency of their statements, if they are ‘walking the talk’. With rising misinformation and commercial ownership, independent information is more and more rare. We think citizens deserve access to accurate analyses with integrity at their heart, so we can all make critical decisions about our lives, health and enviroment – based on fact, not fiction.
Our editorial independence means our content agenda is set only to voice our opinions, supported by in-depth research, free from any political and commercial bias, never influenced by interested owners or shareholders (which we don’t have). It means we can stand up to mainstream and give a voice to those less heard. We hope this will motivate you to make a contribution in support of our open, independent journalism. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support BeIntelligent from as little as €5 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
