Our planet has provided us with an abundance of natural resources, however we still do not utilize them responsibly. We must learn how to use and produce in sustainable ways that will reverse the harm we have inflicted on the planet. Achieving this goal requires a strong national framework for sustainable consumption and production that is integrated into all business practices. We must come together and adhere to international norms on the management of hazardous chemicals and waste. Disconnecting economic growth from the use of natural resources is fundamental to sustainable development.
