Green Human Resources Management is a concept that was recently introduced to HR Management, and that was not only introduced to organizations but also to HR Management Programs. But what is Green HR Management? And how is it different from traditional HR Management?
One thing that the previous decade has taught us is that the way we work before may not work out this time. With the advancement of technology and the shift that occur in the workforce, more and more organizations are keen to adopt new practices to stay on top of their games. We see companies undergoing organizational changes to come up with new strategies, processes, procedures, technologies, and culture. One of the aspects that they consider the most is diversity and inclusion.
It’s undeniable how far humans have become. Men (and women) have done a lot of things that are considered impossible. We have sailed the oceans, flew up to the sky, reached the moon, heard someone’s voice from afar, took a photo, saw moving images from a box, sent messages here and there, talked to a loved one and eventually seeing their faces on the screen and most recently, accomplishing several important tasks with a touch of our fingertips.
GDPR became enforceable on May 25th of this year. Since this is a regulation, not a directive, GDPR doesn’t require national governments to pass any enabling legislation and is directly binding and applicable. It is said that, in some circumstances, violators may be fined up to 20 million Euros or up to 4% of the annual global turnover of the preceding financial year in case of an enterprise, whichever is greater.
Most of the people, especially in the rural areas, depend on agriculture as one of the major sources of livelihood. However, farmers rely on the traditional way of farming based on the indigenous agricultural practices that have been passed on for generations.
Food (including water) is one of human being’s basic needs. We need to consume food to acquire the necessary nutrients that our bodies need to function well. As you can see, our bodies are like power stations. Power stations are typically fueled by gas and coal because, without it, the power station will not continue running. We can say the same thing with our bodies. Scientifically speaking, food serves as the power that our body needs to continue existing.
That said, it’s unusual to hear and read news about food wastage. I mean, why would people waste something that is vital to our way of living? The fact that poverty and food insecurity is a major global concern, how can people afford to waste food?
Yesterday, I was watching the News in France. In an almost banal tone, the journalist was explaining that the oceans were asphyxiated by tons of plastic waste floating on the surface. Oceans form vast garbage cans gathered in the middle of the seas.
You’re probably aware of the expression, “To see is to believe.”
In antiquity, diverse point of views led to the division of people especially among philosophers, mathematicians, scientists and scholars. Some stood by the belief of a round Earth while some were convinced by the belief of a flat Earth. Doubts still surfaced despite some valid arguments supporting the roundness of the Earth like the curved reflected shadow of the Earth during a lunar eclipse and the varied angles of the shadow when moving from north to south.
Sustainable consumption is the use of resources that minimizes environmental destruction while providing people’s well-being. Women are better compared to men in terms of more sustainable consumption patterns: they produce a smaller carbon footprint. Regardless of economic status, men’s consumer patterns and lifestyles tend to be less sustainable and have a greater pattern of consumption compared to women. Thus, following the carbon footprint of women can have less environmental impact.
Sustainable agriculture has been defined in the last blog post of Carrhure. This blog will focus on the other side of the coin which is unsustainable agriculture. If sustainable agriculture is defined, then “as a method in agriculture that deals on how to produce food that does not destroy the environment and contributes to a community’s livelihood,” then unsustainable agriculture is the opposite of that.
This blog will resonate the five top reasons of unsustainable agricultural practices and why there is a destruction of the rural environment.
