The only way to take care of our resources is to think about sustainable cities that fit in with the environment. We are not only talking about green spaces, but also about minimizing noise pollution and recycling to avoid waste proliferation. Buildings will be designed to be energy efficient by taking advantage of available natural resources (sunlight, wind or rain).
Promoting a culture of sustainability is fundamental for the good development of future cities; Reykjavik is the European capital considered a model of energy efficiency, covering almost 100% of its demand with renewable energies. Located in the country of “the land of fire and ice”, the island is in a very active volcanic area that allows it to take advantage of geothermal energy; glaciers cover 11% of Iceland and their seasonal melting increases the flow of rivers that end up in the sea, boosting hydroelectric resources; wind energy, yet to be exploited, has enormous potential.
Stockholm is another of the most sustainable cities in the world thanks to its eco-neighborhoods, which are characterized by taking advantage of the shade of trees and planting gardens with native species. They also install solar panels on housing and use wood in construction obtained from forests under sustainability criteria. Singapore penalizes the use of private vehicles in favor of public transport or car sharing to reduce CO2 emissions. It intends to make 80% of its buildings environmentally friendly by 2030, in addition to having a woodland index of almost 30%, the highest of any city in the world.
In Latin America, Santiago de Chile is betting on connectivity to improve the quality of life of its inhabitants, becoming a Smart City with a significant investment in 5G. They will make smart homes a reality by reducing the impact of the carbon footprint thanks to the internet of things and artificial intelligence.
Nubeprint upholds its strong commitment to sustainability in both labor and technology. Employees work 100% remotely, saving fuel and reducing CO2 emissions to zero, and are fully aware of the Nubeprint App as they download it themselves so that their printers are monitored and never run out of consumables. Our customers reduce printing costs by eliminating waste, drive the circular economy of the cartridge and optimize the life of the printer. Working together, together we do our bit towards achieving neutral impact and along the way we learn how to reduce costs and gain productivity.
