UNIGULF is a part of a group primarily involved with solutions for renewable energy and applications thereto, and traces its roots back to 1998. Although commencement in this field was made with biomass initiatives, it was subsequently felt longer-term needs were best met when independent of organic or non-organic supplies; including scarce and intermittent natural sources conventionally relied upon by the renewable energy industry.
In 2012, a PCT was filed for an innovative product which fulfilled such criteria, keeping in view importance of such sources of energy needs going forward. The present invention provides an apparatus for producing mechanical movement and converting the same into electrical energy through expansion and compression of a medium.
This forms ethos for technology of the company in the field of renewable energy - with current involvement in green IT and on going research for potentially relevant solutions in areas of water paucity and sustainable agriculture.
Mission and Vision
We are dedicated to development of pioneering sustainable technologies that involve solutions without reliance on organic or non-organic supplies or waste natural resources; while increasing profitability and scalability through environmentally responsible intervention.
Our vision is to continue with advanced innovative elucidations to extend our client base into allied areas including water paucity and natural effect on agriculture while remaining focused on product integrity, outstanding customer service and social responsibility.
We consider social responsibility, corporate governance and transparency to be key tenets to running a business within a rapidly changing and seemingly border less world.
Long term values are best created in vocations which follow such structure while recognising their role as part of a wider community. These principles are actively imbibed within UNIGULF and any purpose the Company is involved with.
Considering our core focus with mitigation of risks associated with the environment - UNIGULF ensures that any decision we implement is eco-friendly by endeavouring to integrate its impact into our working processes at all times.
The business we engage in touch the lives of individuals - whether through employment, services offered, economic value created or impact on the surrounding environment.
The Company is of the opinion this connect should be positive. While building renewable operations are a part of this, UNIGULF promotes direct engagement with neighbouring communities.
Successful and tenable businesses require robust governance. We are committed to apical standards of corporate governance within an effective framework.
Green computing, or Green ICT as per IFGICT (International Federation of Green Information & Communication Technology) replaced officially by IFG Green ICT Standard (International Federation of Green ICT Standard) is the study and practice of environmentally sustainable computing or IT.
In a 2008 article, San Murugesan defined green computing as "the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers, servers, and associated sub-systems - such as monitors, printers, storage devices, networking and communications systems - efficiently and effectively with minimal or no impact on the environment." Murugesan laid out four paths along which he believed the environmental effects of computing should be addressed: green use, green disposal, green design and green manufacturing.
In 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched Energy Star, a voluntary labelling program designed to promote and recognize energy-efficiency in monitors, climate control equipment and other technologies; resulting in widespread adoption of sleep mode among consumer electronics. Concurrently, the Swedish organization TCO Development launched TCO Certification to promote low magnetic and electrical emissions from CRT based computer displays; which was later expanded to include criteria on energy consumption, ergonomics, and use of hazardous materials in construction.
Green computing also develops solutions that offer benefits by "aligning all IT processes and practices with the core principles of sustainability: which are to reduce, reuse, and recycle; and finding innovative ways to use IT in business processes to deliver sustainability benefits across the enterprise and beyond."
Modern IT systems rely upon a complicated mix of people, networks, and hardware; as such, a green computing initiative must cover all of these areas as well. Solutions may also need to address end user satisfaction, management restructuring, regulatory compliance and return on investment (ROI).
Perhaps more than with most other areas within an enterprise or inter personal circumstances; content and delivery of communication can make a difference to perception of a business in its marketplace or overall perception of a relationship. Added to the fast changing contextual environment of digital media within which brands or individuals invariably vie for space within, one requires a presence which is more decisive than cursory, yet impactful enough to lead to contemplation.
What matters is the ability to be able to create lasting and meaningful thoughts; unhindered but yet cogent enough with a view to promote innovation or variation in opinion - having initially derived value as a cohort.
UNIGULF is involved with development of various applications which comply with Green IT norms and find place within genres of cloud computing, social media, communication and web technologies.
The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s food and textile needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable agriculture takes many forms, but at its core is a rejection of the industrial approach to food production developed during the 20th century.
This system, with its reliance on monoculture, mechanisation, chemical pesticides, fertilisers, biotechnology, and government subsidies - has made food abundant and affordable. However, the ecological and social price has been steep: erosion, depleted and contaminated soil and water resources, loss of biodiversity, deforestation, labour abuses, and the decline of the family farm.
Sustainable agriculture frequently encompasses a wide range of production practices, including conventional and organic. A regionally integrated system of plant and animal production practices are designed to produce long-term results such as:
- Production of sufficient human food, feed, fiber, and fuel to meet the needs of a sharply rising population
- Protection of the environment and expansion of the natural resources supply
- Sustainment of the economic viability of agriculture systems
There are many practices commonly used by those working in sustainable agriculture and sustainable food systems. Growers may use methods to promote soil health, minimise water use, and lower pollution levels on the farm. Consumers and retailers concerned with sustainability can look for “value-based” foods that are grown using methods promoting farmworker well-being, that are environmentally friendly, or that strengthen the local economy. And researchers in sustainable agriculture often cross disciplinary lines with their work: combining biology, economics, engineering, chemistry, community development, and many others.
The concept of sustainable agriculture embraces a wide range of techniques, including organic, free-range, low-input, holistic, and biodynamic. The common thread among these methods is an embrace of farming practices that mimic natural ecological processes. Farmers minimise tilling and water use, encourage healthy soil by planting fields with different crops year after year and integrating croplands with livestock grazing, and avoid pesticide use by nurturing the presence of organisms that control crop-destroying pests.
However, sustainable agriculture is more than a collection of practices. It is also process of negotiation: a push and pull between the sometimes competing interests of an individual farmer or of people in a community as they work to solve complex problems about how we grow our food and fiber.
Beyond growing food, the philosophy of sustainability also espouses broader principles that support the just treatment of farm workers and food pricing that provides the farmer with a liveable income, and remains an area of research for us.
