What If Trump And Xi Were To See Eye To Eye On Sustainability?

President Trump and President Xi of China recently met. Imagine a world in which Trump and Xi, the leaders of the two largest national economies, came up with a plan to combat climate change, commit to renewable energy, and clean up the effects of industrial pollution. Here is my envisioning of Trump and Xi focusing on a transition to sustainability instead of trade deals and monetary policies. It is modeled on Trump’s actual recent speech in which he re-committed to the old energy models of coal, oil, and gas. This post reimagines the American President as pro-planet instead of pro-coal. In a world where humanity was meeting the evolutionary challenge presented by the ecological crisis, here is what a dialogue might have sounded like between the leaders of the nations with the largest economies, consumption, pollution, and ecological footprint. (The actual meeting lacked any discussion on climate change or clean energy.) May this aspirational alt-news become real news while we still have time to address the human ecological crisis. […]

Farming In Solidarity: An Interview With Deb Habib And Ricky Baruc

Farmers and educators Deb Habib and Ricky Baruc explain how blending farming with social and environmental justice gives them a way to express their passion for solidarity with nature and humanity. Omega: Farming can be challenging, and farming with social and environmental justice as goals seems like it could be an even bigger undertaking. What motivates you to keep at it each day? Deb & Ricky: When visitors arrive at our farm they see sculpture, altars, and signs woven among the fields and greenhouses, with quotes from passionate drivers for justice who have gone before us and are our inspiration, like Nelson Mandela, Vandana Shiva, Thich Nhat Hanh, Angela Davis, and Hopi Elders.

We Need to Use a Different Part of Our Brain to Crack the Sustainability Challenge

Former UN climate change negotiator Christiana Figueres has credited the teachings of Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh for giving her the strength to play a leading role in last year’s gruelling international climate talks. Figueres was praised for her ability to bring warring factions together with warmth and calm, and for the pivotal role she played in securing agreement to limit global warming to below 2oC. Buddhist meditation — and its recent secular incarnation in mindfulness — is clinically proven to help build resilience to cope with life’s stresses. It’s inspirational to know that it played a part in ensuring December’s historic deal in Paris. But Buddhists may also be on to something else very important for those of us interested sustainable living: we may have been using the wrong part of brain to crack the sustainability challenge […]

For Large Corporations, the Potential for Positive Environmental Impact Is Huge

Recycling and sustainability are becoming increasingly visable as key factors for action at the consumer-level. The need for environmentally-sound practices has galvanized companies around the world, and it’s no coincidence that the world’s most admired companies are sustainability stars; consumers around the world report a willingness to pay more for goods and services from businesses known for commitment to social and environmental value. At TerraCycle, we have worked with hundreds of brands and consumer packaging goods companies- large and small- to help them reach (and develop new) sustainability goals. Now more than ever, we are seeing some of the largest companies on the planet shifting toward environmental stewardship as part of their CSR intiatives–and the potential benefit for the environment is huge. Our partner PepsiCo, while just one example, has created massive impact through Recycle Rally: a K-12 school initiative challenging children to recycle on-campus and engage their communities. Since 2010, thousands of K-12 schools have recycled 59 million bottles and cans and received portions of $1 million in prizes. In addition to the reward incentives, PepsiCo has invested in developing and sharing a broad array of educational resources and tools and is inspiring students with art projects that utilize used cans and bottles. When recognizable brands like PepsiCo lead sustainability at this level, environmental stewardship is more likely to resonate with younger generations– and the success of Recycle Rally is a great indicator. Unilever, makers of everything from food to personal care products, is another large corporation accepting its environmental responsibility. Unilever recently set ambitious reduction targets aiming to slow down the depletion of natural resources, to success. […]

Can students change the face of business?

What happens when you give eight bright young entrepreneurs the freedom and resources to change the way we approach sustainable business? They create something revolutionary, while making established businesses sit up and take notice. Over the northern summer, DNV GL gathered a team of students from a range of studies at the company headquarters outside Oslo, Norway. They were given six weeks to create a digital platform to drive awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while creating value for both business and society. The result is Wembo – a two-part digital platform designed to enable businesses and consumers to do their part in reaching the Global Goals through transparency, collaboration and sharing […]
