COP26 & SUSTAINABLE SKINCARE

HOW CAN THE USAGE OF SUSTAINABLE SKINCARE CONTRIBUTE TO THE REDUCTION OF C02 IN THE ATMOSPHERE?

COP26 “ conference of the parties” & global warming

The 26th United Nations Climate Conference on Climate Change  –  COP26 is currently being held in Glasgow under the auspices of the United Kingdom in partnership with Italy. The event brings together governments  from around  the world to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.  

They first met almost 30 years ago. The United Nations has called on countries to sign a climate convention to commit to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

At this year’s meeting, the parties will review progress in meeting their commitments under the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to well below 2 ° C compared to pre-industrial levels and to work towards limiting it to 1.5 ° C.

This year, the EU has renewed its climate ambitions in line with the Paris Agreement, pledging to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030, and this goal has become a legal obligation with European climate rules.

However, climate change is a global threat and the EU cannot act alone.

Global warming is causing increasing, in some cases even irreversible, changes in rainfall patterns, oceans and winds in all regions of the world. We are experiencing more frequent and intense extreme weather conditionsin the EU and around the world on more ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

CAUSES OF CLIMATE CHANGE

CAUSES OF CLIMATE CHANGE

Through its activities, man is increasingly interfering with the climate and temperature conditions on Earth, most notably by burning and burning fossil fuels, deforestation and extensive livestock farming, where huge amounts of methane are released.

Namely, huge amounts of greenhouse gases (CO2, methane, nitrous oxide, fluorinated gases) are released into the atmosphere, which together with those naturally present further increase the greenhouse effect and the consequent warming of the atmosphere.

CONSEQUENCES OF CLIMATE CHANGE

• melting ice and rising sea levels
• extraordinary weather phenomena, changed amounts of rainfall
• fewer sources of drinking water and poorer water quality
• risk to human health
• extinction of animal species
The cosmetics industry is one of the largest industries in the world, where a huge amount of energy is consumed and released. Those brands that are truly sustainable are trying to keep C02 emissions to a minimum. At DALÚ Natural Skincare, we use glass inner packaging. Our production partners have significantly reduced water consumption in glass production over the past year. Our outer packaging is carbon neutral (CN) and is FSC certified, which means responsible forest management. This year, at the end of the year, we will receive the first neutral report on CO2 emissions in connection with the sending of our packages to end users.

There is power in people.  We can do a lot. Each individual can make a huge contribution to reducing waste, to proper waste disposal, by reducing energy consumption, by using  green energy ….  Everybody counts!

During this year’s working holiday visit to the Maldives, we at DALÚ became even more aware of the importance of temperature changes. This amazing paradise on earth, consisting of 1.035 atolls, is already showing signs of global warming, more than obvious showing signs of coral bleaching. The underwater world is incredibly rich and alive, and the vivid colors of the coral are disappearing as the corals die. The process is called “bleaching of corals”. Due to the melting of the ice, however, the water level will rise and the Maldives will disappear from the map if we do not take action. Many other places around the world will disappear. The Maldives are working hard, you can hardly see the plastic, there is no rubbish in the sea, the visitors keep order …
Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, an example of the largest biodiversity on planet Earth, is facing coral bleaching. Scientists have been warning about the changes for a decade.
