TreeFree Biomass Solutions and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals
As a blueprint for the organization's commitment to sustainability, the United Nations released 17 Sustainable Development Goals that provide a blueprint for governments, the private sector, and civil society to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. To do our part, TFBS looked at their 17 goals and identified how the company contributes to these goals through our operations or how the company can create programs to help contribute. These 17 goals are listed below with their definitions and TFBS's contribution to each goal.
TreeFree's contributions to the Sustainable Development goals stem from a few basic concepts rooted in the three pillars of sustainability (Economic, Environmental, and Social):
Economic: TreeFree's agricultural foundation shifts the forestry and fossil fuel industries from centralized resource-owning companies to decentralized farmers around the world producing feedstock for an array of products. In doing so, TreeFree creates new jobs for farmers globally, boosting people's and communities' incomes. Increased wealth helps address and alleviate issues throughout the 17 goals.
Environmental: TreeFree's use of NileFiber as a feedstock instead of forests and fossil fuels both decreases total carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and safeguards against deforestation.
Social: The infusion of capital/wages into communities supports the development and access to social services/goods. The alleviation of environmental damage
