¿What is a consumer group?
The creation of a consumption group arises from the need for a group of people who believe in more responsible consumption.
SDG 12. Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 SDGs are integrated, recognizing that interventions in one area will affect the outcomes of others and that development must balance environmental, economic and social sustainability.
In this context, Enclave de Oliva as a Cooperative Society is positioned within the framework established by “Goal-12- Responsible Production and Consumption“.
With this mechanism there is a direct effect on the reduction of the ecological footprint mainly by creating more efficient production and supply chains that in turn add value to the food security of consumers and leads us towards a fair economy with the producer.
There is no other way to achieve economic growth and sustainable development, it is urgent to reduce the ecological footprint through a change in production methods and consumption of goods and resources.
Three pillars of sustainability: The economic, the social, and the environment
First, because the company, whether larger or smaller, is a group of people who relate to each other on a daily basis. We are not human capital, nor are we just another resource: we give meaning to company. Moreover, it is not only the people we create, manage or work in companies that matter, but also those who relate to them: customers, suppliers, collaborators, etc.
Second, because in that traditional definition of the company, an essential element was forgotten: the environment. Everything was reduced to a relationship between invested capital, human resources and raw materials. Nobody thought that these could be increasingly scarce, more inaccessible, or that they would mean destruction in terms of pollution, destruction of the landscape and emissions of greenhouse gases, which we are paying for and will pay for over the next few decades.
It is unimaginable to think of an advanced society without modern companies that assume their backbone role and make sense of what they produce and, above all, how they produce it.
Enclave de Oliva recognizes the need to develop a model that incorporates a Social Balance and an Ecological Balance that allow us to measure the health of our company and plan management.
