agua curiosidadesCuriosidades sobre el agua

El agua es el recurso natural renovable más importante en la vida de todo ser vivo. El cuerpo humano está compuesto en un 70% de este líquido vital

El objetivo principal de abordar las curiosidades sobre el agua es que el sector civil, sea público o privado, cree conciencia sobre el uso del líquido más importante del planeta. Recuerde que si bien es cierto que todo en sí es agua, y que este es un recurso renovable, puede agotarse el suministro de agua potable si no se cuida de manera correcta.

Como ya se mencionó, algunos lugares del mundo, ya no poseen agua en sus embalses, lo que ha hecho que más de 1.100 millones de personas no tengan acceso directo al agua. Con tan solo 4 litros de combustible, se puede contaminar, 2.8 millones de litros.

Stora Enso is testing drones at several mills in Finland, the Czech Republic, and China to make woodyard inventories faster, more accurate – and safer. Using drones for stocktaking means that workers do not need to walk between logpiles or watch out for the large telescopic handling machines used to move logs. This, of course, reduces the risk of accidents and injuries.

In addition to legislation, the use of forests in Finland is regulated by various voluntary systems. Forest certification is the most significant one. Approximately 85% of Finland’s forests are FSC® or PEFC™ certified. This proportion represents one of the highest in the world.

The criteria for forest certification include the economic, environmental and social sustainability of the use of forests. The certification criteria are established in cooperation with a wide range of stakeholders. The end result is a collectively recognized standard. Among others, this standard covers criteria related to legality, the environment and employees’ rights, in addition to the planning, monitoring and evaluation of activities.
