The World Commission on Environment and Development report of the United Nations on 1987, includes the concept of sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
“Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Sustainable development is a process of change in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investment, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are made consistent with future as well as present needs.
The concept of sustainable development does imply limits – not absolute limits but limitations imposed by the present state of technology and social organization on environmental resources and the ability of the biosphere to absorb the effects of social activities.”
IQLubricants has the will to base its sustainability policy on three main blocks: environment and natural resources, social responsibility and economic sustainability. In this way, the business focuses its developments on resources that can be replaced and not harmful to the environment. In addition, the design of optimal molecules that can deliver substantial improvements in lubricity and wear protection contributes significantly to the reduction of energy consumption and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
In other words, IQLubricants business aims at a life-cycle model emphasizing the environmental impact of the products themselves (raw materials, logistics, production, etc.) and the performance of the products in use.
