Question 1: What is a Brownfield site? Any land which was previously used, but is not used now-the land must be vacant, derelict or contaminated-quite often the land must be decontaminated and restored before being re-used. Question 2: what is a Greenfield site? It’s a land that has never been built on. Question 3: Describe the term sustainability Making sure that whatever we do to the environment now does not damage it beyond repair for the future.
This shows prospects for the long-term survival of the human race at the level of its current manifestation in developed countries. Two fundamental concepts are shown in the United Nations definition: 1 – the fair and just intergenerational allocation and use of natural resources, 2 – the preservation of ecosystems across time. c. Sustainable design suggests a macro perspective on environmental responsibility, protection of the health and welfare of global ecosystems for current and future generations. Green design suggests a micro perspective, protection of people’s health and welfare in the built environment. Environmentally responsible design, a combination of green and sustainable design, has far-reaching benefits for planet Earth and its inhabitants.
Since the building is expected to have a considerable sustainable emphasis it is important to ensure any new technology that my company uses in the construction of the visitor centers fabric and structure contributes positively towards the internal environment. As a result I have initially been requested to conduct an investigation into several points such as describe the materials and performance that contribute to structure and fabric positively to the overall performance of the building. Also as the building is to have a considerable sustainable emphasis it is important that any new technology used is tried and tested and is positive.
Once the product life cycle management software replaced the CAD system it allowed Santa Cruz to enhance the overall process of converting a prototype into a product ready for customer use. The PLM system was already proven technology and made the risk taken by Santa Cruz Bikes minimal. Another outside factor was getting the team to embrace the new system. Systems like the one implemented by Santa Cruz bikes
The three major issues that must be analyze and solved are: • How to convince upper management of the benefits of becoming more environmentally friendly. • Development of a team to explore the most cost effective way to reach and/or exceed the new environmentally friendly goals. • Implementation of a quality assurance system will have to be developed to ensure compliance with the new environmentally friendly goals. The key players and their roles within this green program
We also feel that we can improve quality as well. Continuous improvement is based on the Deming model of Plan, Do, Check, Act. The hard part is planning, because that is where we must recognize an opportunity to improve the product. Remember, however, that we have good people, human resources is our strength. We must put some money into research & development in order to leverage this strength for improved quality, by encouraging innovation and implementing innovations to continuously improve both our products and our processes.
Unit 29 1.1 – Explain the importance of using sustainable resources. 1.2 – Explain the potential impact of resources use on the environment. Sustainability, in the resources we use at work, is important because all the choices we make and all the actions that we make on a day to day basis will affect everything in the future such as cost now and in the future and the success of future business. We need to make right decisions now in order to avoid limiting the choices of our business to come.

Very importantly, workers should be better protected from employer intimidation when attempting to organize unions. Businesses need to take employees seriously and understand that although it will cost more to pay a union income, it benefits the employees’ welfare and may improve their individual performance. Mass transit should also be improved. It will help economically and environmentally. And finally, employment insurance should be extended as well.

“Environmental sustainability will never be achieved without population control.” Discuss this statement. Environmental sustainability means treating the environment in a way which allows us to meet the needs of present generation without limiting future generations to meet their needs. It is undeniable that population growth has had an impact on the environment and It can be said that without population control, environmental sustainability will never be achieved. However there are other ways in which environmental sustainability can be achieved. Population control does not only mean limiting birth rates, but may also include control of migration and resource consumption of people.
