NobleExchange contributes to the Global Sustainable Development Goals

In the September 2015 UN Summit, 193 Governments of the world came together and adopted 17 truly audacious goals referred as Sustainability Development Goals (SDG’s). These Goals hold the power to alter the narrative of human history forever.

NobleExchange is aligned with 13 of the 17 goals where the core impacts are focused on

Sustainable cities and communities Affordable and Clean Energy Climate action

Sustainable cities and communities There needs to be a future in which cities provide opportunities for all with access to basic services, energy, housing, transport and more. CBG is recognized as a modern bio-fuel good for use in the transport sector to reduce dependence on conventional fossil fuels. CBG is produced closest to the point of consumption. CBG provides a continuous circle of energy coming into being from waste.

Affordable and Clean Energy Energy is central to every major challenge and opportunity. CBG is a clean and efficient form of bio energy that replaces conventional fossil fuel. And it is comparable in price to lowest cost conventional transport fuel i.e. CNG.

No poverty Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality. Each of our projects work with minimum 100 workers from the unorganized rag picking / scavenging industry and bring them into formal employment with minimum wages, health and social benefits, etc.

Zero hunger Food & agriculture sector offers key solutions for development and is central for hunger and poverty eradication. Organic Manure from our plant helps farmers achieve dramatic increase in both quality and quantity of farm output.

Decent work and economic growth Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs. Apart from creating organized jobs for workers from unorganized sectors; CBG industry has the potential to create several thousands of qualified jobs where none existed before.

Life on land Sustainably manage forests, combat decertification, halt land degradation and halt biodiversity loss. Forests are home to more than 80% of terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects. CBG plants eliminate dumping waste at landfills thus freeing land for more productive use by society. Elimination of food waste at landfills also reduces chances of man-animal conflicts.

Partnerships Lobby your Government to boost developmental financing. Revitalize global partnerships for Sustainable development. CBG plants bring collaborations between several Government agencies and private enterprises in a unique Public – Private – Partnership mode.

Climate action Climate change is a global challenge that affects everyone, everywhere. Global emission of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) has increased by almost 50% since 1990. “Greenest” fuel CBG resulting in a significant carbon footprint reduction. When derived from segregated Organic Waste; CBG is certified as 100% Carbon neutral gas by the United Nations Federation for Climate Control (UNFCC).

Clean water & sanitation Water scarcity affects more than 40% of the world population. Our technology uses zero fresh water for processing of food waste and generates 70% of input quantity as surplus water for agricultural purposes.

Industry innovation and infrastructure Fund projects that will provide infrastructure. Investment in infrastructure is critical to achieve sustainable development. Food waste – CBG plants are national / social infrastructure that will serve the society for 30-40 years and create long term sustainable impact at multiple levels.

Reduce inequalities To reduce inequalities, policies have to be universal in principle, paying attention to the needs of the disadvantaged and marginalized population. Each of our projects work with minimum 100 workers from the unorganized rag picking / scavenging industry and bring them into formal employment with minimum wages, health and social benefits, etc.

Responsible consumption and production By 2050 equivalent of almost 3 planets could be required to sustain current lifestyles. CBG helps save depleting natural resources like fossil fuels. Organic manure supports agriculture while reducing dependence on chemicals & fertilizers.

Life below water Careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future. It is critical to keep oceans and rivers clean. Over 3 billion people depend on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods. Food waste when prevented from dumped at landfills eliminates hazardous leachate polluting ground water and riverbeds.
