Geographic focus, key to sustainability

The Consistency It’s more than a trend. A Need and responsibility All forms of organization must be considered to guarantee the well-being of present and future generations.

In this context, sustainability is an ethical, social and economic imperative that affects the reputation, competitiveness and survival of companies, how can we move from intention to action? How can results be measured and reported? How can areas for improvement be identified and prioritized?

The answer is there Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and on the geographical factorA key and differentiating aspect of geospatial technology is that it allows organizations to analyze and visualize data in a spatial context, providing a deeper and more accurate understanding of the environment in which they operate.

A geographic approach allows companies to Integrating, analyzing and visualizing data related to sustainability through its spatial componentThus better understand the impact of its activities on the environment, society and economy.

Geospatial technology offers many benefits for sustainability management

On the one hand, it allows Integrating data from various sources and formats, facilitating information access and interoperability. On the other hand, it makes it easier Data analysis from an individual perspective, spatial, which helps detect patterns, trends, and relationships that might otherwise go unnoticed. Also, it allows Visualize and communicate data in an interactive and engaging wayIt supports the commitment and participation of the different actors involved.

An example of how a geographic approach can support sustainability is the use of information systems Improving resilience to climate change. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity, and its effects are already being felt in the form of droughts, floods, fires, hurricanes and other extreme events.

Geospatial technology helps assess the vulnerability and risk of communities and ecosystems to these events, as well as planning and implementing adaptation and mitigation measures. For example, only the geographical approach allows the creation of risk maps of the areas most exposed and affected by climate change relative to a company’s infrastructure or assets. These maps serve as a basis for decision making Allocation of resources, conservation of infrastructure, conservation of biodiversity or reduction of emissions.

In short, the geographic approach, that is, the ability to visualize and analyze spatial data, allows companies to transform their sustainability objectives into concrete and effective actions, to understand their environment in a more complete way, and to make informed and strategic decisions that promote sustainability. , creating innovative solutions that improve the well-being of people and the planet.

In this sense, the Hydrological Bulletin Weekly of the Ministry of Environmental Change and Population Challenge, The GIS Portal of the European Environment Agency or the Climate Mapping for Resilience and Adaptation (CMRA) of the US Government, are clear examples of how geospatial technology can help the collection, visualization, management, analysis, and sharing of climate data to understand changing environmental conditions and make informed decisions to protect them.
