Nitrate and lipids have been recognized as effective dietary additives to reduce enteric methane (CH4) production. The objective of this experiment was to evaluate the effects of nitrate and canola oil, alone or in combination, on enteric CH4, volatile fatty acid (VFA) concentrations, digesta kinetics and outflow of DM and microbial non-ammonia nitrogen (MicNAN) from the rumen of cattle. The article contributes to SDG 13.
Impacts of rearing goats for milk production are analysed and more environmentally-friendly options are suggested to further SDGs 12 and 13.
This article furthers SDGs 12 and 13 by looking at the supply chain for returnable containers (secondary packaging material such as bins, pallets, boxes or crates) as a means of reducing CO2 emissions. The authors propose a returnable containers supply chain that consists of a single vendor and multiple buyers. They study the impact of the investment of buyers on the performance of the supply chain, developing two inventory models for comparison. They show that the first case, where buyers invest, leads to optimal performance.
Most south Asian countries witnessed localized greening/browning during 2000–2016. Coarse-scale satellite data (≥1 km) might not capture subtle forest degradation, therefore high-resolution data (≤10 m) must be used to assess current forest condition. A multi-step framework should be employed for accurate reporting of SDG 15.
Advancing SDGs 7 and 13, this article outlines why divesting from fossil fuels makes sense environmentally and financially.
This article addressses goals 7, 12 and 13 showing the opportunity that implementation of zero emission ferry lines offers in the framework of 100% RES smart island energy systems and demonstrates their ability to supply the fuel for zero emission ferry lines.

This journal article addresses goals 14, 13, and 2 by focussing on coral reefs as vanguards for governance transformation, explaining the spatial, temporal, and political dynamics of reefs as they respond to climate change and outline a new governance paradigm applicable to all ecosystems.
This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 13 by highlighting the green and sustainable alternatives that have been used so far in the open literature for the production of waterborne polymeric dispersions.

Ecology has helped drive solutions to big problems, such as acid rain, species extinction, and overfishing, but do we solve enough? To address this question, we reviewed the 40 top ecology journals (by impact factor), which are likely to have the greatest readership and influence in the field.
In this study, we use a new type of satellite data looking at vegetation water and photosynthesis to compare the success of different reforestation methods, using China's Three-North Shelterbelt Program as a case study.
