By resource is meant any physical entity, which has limited availability. These resources occur in their natural form. Few examples of natural resources are: •Air, wind and atmosphere •Plants (Flora) •Animals (Fauna) •Agronomy (the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed and fiber) •Wildlife •Forestry and Agroforestry •Coal and fossil fuels •Range and pasture •Soils •Water, oceans, lakes and rivers Something that people generally arent aware of, is that everything we use in everyday life are derived from natural resources, for example, milk which comes from cows - animals are a natural resource. We use water, food and vegetables that comes from plants, salt which is a mineral are some of the other natural resources. Wood that we get from tree is a natural resource. It can be used to build a house, make paper, burn in fireplaces and in stoves for cooking, etc. Man utilizes these resources in various ways. These resources are processed further so as to be made suitable for our needs. The table below is an example that shows in what way the resources have been utilized.

Due to the constantly rising demand for food and energy, humanity is consuming more natural resources than are regenerated and brings the Earth's ecosystems to their performance limits. What are the consequences of the rapidly changing land use for humans and the environment? How do future sustainable land use strategies for the limited resource land look like? These are the core questions, which are analyzed interdisciplinary in the Integrated Project Land Use Conflicts.

Prof. Steve Horwitz addresses the common belief that the world is running out of natural resources. Instead, there are economic reasons why we will never run out of many resources. In a free market system, prices signal scarcity. So as a resource becomes more scarce, it becomes more expensive, which incentivizes people to use less of it and develop new alternatives, or to find new reserves of that resource that were previously unknown or unprofitable. We have seen throughout history that the human mind's ability to innovate, coupled with a free market economic system, is an unlimited resource that can overcome the limitations we perceive with natural resources.

005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Being sustainable is no longer a buzzword, it’s a necessity. Making a company sustainable helps preserve the environment by staving off climate change and conserving limited natural resources. It can also enhance the competitiveness and reputation of your business. But how can business align very specific and KPIs set-in-stone, or fixed weekly, daily or even hourly targets on the workfloor? Can they be reconciled with the vague concept of sustainability? Can they be interpreted in different ways to suit different agendas? Or is it perhaps that they will only be effective in the long term?? RSM’s Professor of Sustainability, Management and Climate Change Gail Whiteman’s answer is: speak boardroom language when addressing businesses about sustainability. Climate change is a matter of strategy for companies for many reasons. But as long as climate change experts and business leaders don’t speak the same language, they won’t move in the same direction, or be able to move together to create change. But this change can start right where business executives start off: in business school. Prof. Whiteman wants to help students realise that sustainability is the foundation of business.

While the increase in natural gas development is beneficial, it is crucial that the extraction is conducted in a way that ensures protection of ground and surface waters as well as adequate availability of waste disposal.

In part 3 of my series I give you an insight into the relation between our diet and our -one and only- planet earth. "We are in the midst of an ecological devastation. Raising animals for food is the single greatest human-caused source of destruction to our environment. It is the largest source of greenhouse gases, land use and degradation; the number one source of water pollution and rainforest deforestation. It's also a major contributor to air pollution, ocean dead zones, habitat loss and species extinction. And when we include all the resources that go into raising animals for food - the land, fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides, fossil fuels and fresh water - animal agribusiness is shockingly inefficient and a costly and wasteful use of our limited natural resources." ~yourdailyvegan At the end of the video I talk about what I personally think is the absolutely most important message behind veganism: it's not an "all or nothing" matter. There are so many baby steps we can all -vegans and non-vegans- take that would help us move in the right direction!

Assessing palaeochannel resources in the light of future environmental change: a case study from the Trent Valley, UK David Knight, Samantha Stein, Steve Malone YORK ARCHAEOLOGICAL TRUST Palaeochannels are one of the most common features of valley floors in temperate alluvial landscapes, and their value as natural sediment traps containing proxy records of climate, vegetation history and land-use is well known within the archaeological and geomorphological communities. In the recent past, the most significant threats to these landforms have been associated with quarrying, but future climate change may bring new challenges, associated both with changing natural threshold conditions and with flood risk management. Mitigating and managing future threats to these important historic environment assets requires detailed knowledge of their extent and character. This paper outlines a multi-staged approach to evaluating the palaeochannel resource in the Nottinghamshire sector of the middle and lower Trent Valley, UK. The first stage of the project involved the mapping of features from a variety of remote-sensed imagery, including standard aerial photography, lidar and multispectral data, and assessing the efficacy of each methodology. However, producing a landform resource map is simply the first stage of this project, and this presentation will also explore future stages, including fieldwork strategies for assessing the chronology and preservation potential of these landforms at the macroscale and likely future threats associated with climate change. Whilst such research is important for heritage management, this approach can benefit the wider community. In particular, palaeochannels are key assets for nature conservation, and can play a key role in flood management strategies as a part of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems.

Environmental Energy Resources Ltd. ("EER") is an environmental technology company dedicated to the development of PGM Technology (Plasma Gasification Melting), a compelling approach to treatment and disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Medical Waste (MW), Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste (LILRW) while producing energy. EER's major breakthrough with PGM technology is the development of a highly efficient reactor configuration enabling the achievement of practically "Zero Waste" while avoiding the economic deficiencies usually associated with plasma use and the damaging environmental effects usually associated with incineration. PGM technology is capable of complying with the most stringent environmental regulations at considerably lower costs compared to alternative technologies. EER was founded in 2000 by Moshe Stern and the Founders group (including the Russian scientists who developed the original technology).

SEPTA's Sustainability Program is a framework for implementing new and innovative solutions to persistent problems. But advancing an agenda of economic prosperity, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship in an era of budgetary constraints and limited resources requires proactive planning and creative approaches for implementation. Recognizing this, a key component of SEPTA's Sustainability Program implementation strategy will focus on management systems - squeezing more out of less by making institutional processes more efficient. It is in this context that SEPTA applied for and was accepted to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) 2011 Environmental & Sustainability Management System (ESMS) training and assistance program for public transportation agencies. FTA's training is designed to help agencies develop and implement ESMS using the 14001 standard of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The ISO 14001 Standard is a toolbox of management techniques to minimize environmental impacts through a method of continual improvement called "plan-do-check-act": Plan: Establish the objectives, programs & processes to deliver results in accordance with the environmental policy Do: Implement the programs & processes Check: Monitor and measure processes against policy, objectives, targets, and requirements, and report the results Act: Take actions to continually improve programmatic performance towards objectives & targets SEPTA's participation in the FTA's ESMS training and assistance program reflects its commitment to its sustainability program.

Land Reclamation - When a well finishes producing oil or gas, on average after 20 years, the last stage of the lifecycle of a well begins. This step, known as reclamation, is the process of returning the land as close as possible to its original form and use. This requires removing equipment and replanting the site with native vegetation, and can take up to five years or more to complete. Regulators like the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) in Alberta require exploration and production (E&P) companies to make every effort to have the least amount of impact on the environment, so it’s easier to return the land to its original use. This has dramatically affected how wells are drilled in Canada. For example, the area cleared for well pad installations has been reduced by about 40 per cent today compared to the 1970s, and drilling multiple wells from a single pad has become commonplace. (Source: Our Petroleum Challenge) Steps in Reclamation: Planning: Reclamation plans are required when applying for a license to drill. Landscape designs: These plans take into consideration reintroducing appropriate vegetation and the creation of visually pleasing and functional landscapes. Material handling: Once the general shape of the land has been formed, top soil can be placed. This soil is often made up of organic materials from the forest floor which contains seeds and roots of plants. Re-vegetation or reforestation: Land is re-planted by smoothing top soil, placing fertilizer, seeding and harrowing. In reforestation, trees and a variety of shrubs are included in the planting mix. Monitoring: After reclamation, E&P companies monitor the health of trees and soil. Seedling plants are assessed one year after planting and then at five-year intervals. Soil is also assessed by collecting samples and analyzing them for chemical and physical properties. Certification: Government regulators certify land as reclaimed when reclamation is determined to be complete. This certification releases E&P companies from their land lease. However, E&P companies are held to a 25-year liability for surface reclamation issues and a lifetime liability for contamination. (Source: Syncrude Canada Ltd.) In Alberta, Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development conducts audits through field inspections at approximately 15 per cent of the sites to ensure guidelines have been met. Certificates can be cancelled if sites do not meet the remediation requirements or reclamation criteria. (Source: ERCB) In Canada, the lifecycle of a well is a complex and highly regulated process. This process ensures Canada’s vast energy resources are accessed efficiently and with as few environmental impacts as possible.

Henrik Olsen pitches Environmental Technologies Fund at ECO13 London and talks about how to build capital-efficient companies that have big environmental impact. Fuel is running out – we have limited resources. Consequently, everybody in the cleantech startup and investor community tries to make better use of these resources. In fact, capital is also a limited resource and that’s why we need to use it very productively. During the last years, the number of investments has grown but with smaller amounts of capital – a good proof that the whole industry is working on using money more efficiently. According to Henrik, being capital efficient means executing scalable business models while acting in an adaptive, disciplined and resource efficient way. In general, Europe is capital efficient out of necessity as the capital available is not as abundant as in the US. After the first closing of ETF’s second fund, Henrik enjoys liquidity again and has got €70M to invest in Europe. As Henrik is a capital efficient VC, more than one startup should be able to tap into his cleantech fund. Read more: http://ecosummit.net/articles/henrik-olsen-pitches-environmental-technologies-fund
