GreenTalkSolutions supports the Sustainable Development Goals


The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. These Goals are not only universal, integrated, and a transformative vision for a better world but most importantly, an agenda for people to end poverty in all its forms. The 17 SDGs address the global challenges we face today, including climate change, environmental degradation, affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption, life on land and below water, and justice.

We don't believe in sacrificing sustainability for convenience


GreenTalkSolutions has long recognized the need for a holistic and integrated approach to the environmental challenges we face today. We use the framework of the SDGs to provide a positive approach to scaling up global climate goals and will work to promote SDGs dedicated to several environmental targets. For too long, humankind has taken our planet for granted and it is time we respect the boundaries of our natural world. Today, there is an alarming 795 million people suffering from hunger and 1.2 billion living in water-stressed areas. At the same time, biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation are expected to continue at a much faster pace. By 2030 the world will require 50 percent more food, 40 percent more water, energy, timber, and fiber, and the only way we can meet these demands is by managing our ecosystems smartly and sustainably. We need to evaluate our lifestyle and curb those bad habits which contribute to an unsustainable world – but it means we need to be ambitious.

No one should go hungry! We have enough food to feed 10 billion people: Why is COVID-19 causing food insecurity?

Poverty and hunger
Health and Wellbeing
Food security

Around 135 million people suffer from acute hunger, largely due to man-made conflicts, changes in climate, and economic downturns. COVID-19 was set to double acute hunger by the end of 2020.

Good health and well-being at all ages are essential to sustainable development. But how can we do our part to protect our mental health during a crisis? Currently, the global health crisis due to COVID-19 is spreading human suffering, destabilizing the global economy, and upending the lives of billions around the globe.

End poverty

There is no doubt – the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how more efforts are needed to tackle a wide array of diseases and emerging health issues, but most importantly, how preparation and response to future pandemics are crucial to humanity. Read more on how the World Health Organization stands ready to provide COVID-19 support for all countries in its strategic preparedness and response plan.

Urbanization is placing pressure on food systems, and other natural resources

More than ever, our world is becoming urbanized with nearly half of the world's population (3.5 billion) living in cities - Experts 5 billion by 2030 - This is not good news for sustainable development. The fact is, rapid urbanization contributes to the overburdening of infrastructure, and waste collection and places pressure on freshwater supplies, roads, and air quality.

The UN food agency, FAO warned that hunger will rise significantly in densely populated areas if measures are not put in place to ensure access to food.

It is hard to imagine the world's cities occupy just 3 percent of the Earth's land, but account for 60-80 percent of energy consumption, and 70 percent of human-induced gas emissions.

Food consumption and food production should be a top priority

Healthy Diet, meatless diet, sustainable diet
Responsible consumption and production

Our current lifestyle threatens three things we take for granted: water, food, and energy – and the bad news is, our planet has a limited supply to satisfy our appetites. Yearly UN figures show 1.3 billion tonnes of food produced worth around $1 trillion ends up rotting in the bins of consumers and retailers, or spoiling due to poor transportation and harvesting practices. Today, over 2 billion people are experiencing high water stress with hundreds of millions still lacking basic drinking water. Our energy consumption is another growing concern. 

Why we can do better with less?

 It is projected that some countries could see up to 35 percent growth by 2020 despite technological advances and promoted energy efficiency gains. Sustainable Consumption and Production should be taken seriously.

Taking urgent action to combat global climate change will require ways to engage for sustainability. 

Urgent climate change action

Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising and forest fires are becoming more severe. Although greenhouse gas emissions dropped in 2020 due to economic slowdowns from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is just temporary. When the world economy recovers, emissions are expected to rise even higher. An urgent way to combat these events is through engagement and education for sustainability for all.

Diving in the Reef

Water affects our lives in ways beyond our taps. Our rainwater, drinking water, food, weather, climate, coastlines, and the oxygen in the air we breathe are all regulated by the sea.  But the ocean suffers from too much of everything; from increased overfishing to marine pollution, and ocean acidification and is negatively impacting our ecosystems, biodiversity, land use, and tourism. High CO2 emissions are also helping to kill off coral reefs  and in some cases, these effects are intentional.

Sustainable seas

Solving these problems will not only require national intervention but also individual action, including how well we manage the choices we make when we buy and consume food coming from the ocean. Every action counts, let's be ocean minded.  

Nature protects us: We need to protect nature

Both humans and all other living species on land depend on the function of a healthy ecosystem; sadly, it is deteriorating vastly. This means that our food security, health, quality of life, and economies are in jeopardy. Further, the UN reports that human activities have altered nearly 75 percent of the earth's surface – which means that wildlife and nature have gotten smaller on the planet. Worse yet, the more we continue to encroach on our already fragile ecosystems.  

The more we interact with wildlife, enabling their pathogens to spill over to livestock and humans, we increase the risk of disease emergence and amplification like COVID-19. Learn more about our biodiversity and ecosystems services -The IPBES Global Assessment Report

Valuing Water: There is no life on earth without water

GTS Celebrates World Water Day Everyday


Water scarcity is one of the world's top global crisis

Every year on March 22, the world celebrates World Water Day to raise awareness about the global water crisis and 'valuing water'. According to the United Nation, water is at the core of sustainable development and is critical for socio-economic development, healthy ecosystems, and for human survival itself. While it is true that understanding the value of water is critical to the basic needs and existence of all living things on our planet, more often than not, we tend to overlook its value in our daily water usage and we waste it, assuming it will always be there. Highlighting the value of water should be a daily mantra, accompanied by small lifestyle choices that add up to huge impacts. This is why GreenTalkSolutions is committed to making Water Day a daily habit for the overall sustainability of our planet. We promote simple approaches toward water management and conservation that support valuing the environment – Read more ...

Stand up for our planet by helping us to empower our communities

Every gift makes a difference

At GreenTalkSolutions, we stand together to drive the change our world needs. Without food and water, humankind cannot survive. Food is not only a crucial factor in all the SDGs, it is also a prerequisite for its success (See how food connects all the SDGs: Credit Stockholm Resilience Center). We believe "there is hope when we come together to fight for a safe and sustainable future." When you make a contribution in support of our ongoing work towards greening initiative solutions, you will also be supporting water conservation efforts.
