Is your head in a spin over the myriad of sustainability jargon out there? Get to know your offset from your footprint with our glossary of the latest sustainability buzzwords.
Able to break down and blend back in with the earth, given the right conditions and presence of microorganisms, fungi or bacteria. Ideally, but not always, no toxins are left behind in the process. Paper, wood, food scraps and egg shells are examples of materials that are biodegradable.
Biodiversity refers to all the variety of life that can be found on Earth (plants, animals, fungi and micro-organisms) as well as to the communities that they form and the habitats in which they live.
This describes the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping catastrophic climate change - as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.
The amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) one human releases into the environment in a year.
Carbon insetting is when a business finds ways to deal with emissions within the process of producing a product or service.
Carbon neutral is when the combination of all your activities releases the same amount of CO2 as they absorb. When you are “carbon neutral,” your carbon footprint is zero.
Carbon offsetting is the reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere. Offsets are measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent.
Carbon positive means going beyond carbon neutral, making additional 'positive' contributions to the environment.
The capture and storage of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
A circular economy is one that switches the typical cycle of make - use - dispose in favour of as much re-use and recycling as possible.
Climate change is the long-term alteration of temperature and typical weather patterns in a place. The cause of current climate change is largely human activity.
Compostable materials take biodegradability one step further - given the right conditions they provide the earth with nutrients once the material has completely broken down.
As defined by the Food & Agriculture Organization, “Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life”.
The increase in Earth's average temperature over a long period of time.
Gases that trap heat in the atmosphere including carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and water vapour.
Greenwashing is a form of marketing spin that can make us think a service, product or company is more environmentally friendly than it actually is.
Regenerative farming uses practices dedicated to healing top soils, increasing biodiversity and rejuvenating ecosystems that have been damaged by traditional farming practices.
A product or material that can be collected, processed and made into a new product.
Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as rubbish and turning them into new materials and products.
Net zero is the point at which humans contribute nothing to global warming.
Soil health is the condition of the soil in relation to its inherent (or potential) capability, to sustain biological productivity, maintain environmental quality, and promote plant and animal health. A healthy soil is productive, sustainable and profitable.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's)
A set of 17 inter-connected global goals designed by the United Nations to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all".
Meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs too.
Describes all the business activities it takes to create a product or service from start to finish.
A target of sending no waste for disposal via landfill, burning or the ocean.
