Materiality is an accounting or auditing term that refers to the estimated effect that a given piece of information may have on a company’s value—its current or future stock price, for example. If a CEO has been diagnosed with a terminal disease; if a company is being investigated for bribery by a government agency; if its profit or loss needs to be restated by a significant amount—all are examples of something that is “material,” from an investor or stakeholder point of view.

Journey to Midway

Journey to Midway | Environment & Ecology | Scoop.it

visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Returning to the island over several years, our team is witnessing the cycles of life and death of these birds as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. With photographer Chris Jordan as our guide, we walk through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy—and our own complicity—head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a transformational experience of beauty, acceptance, and understanding.

Solar Leasing: Solar's Next Big Thing | DailyFinance

Solar Leasing: Solar's Next Big Thing | DailyFinance | Environment & Ecology | Scoop.it

If you thought the solar industry was dead in the water, think again. A fairly new concept is catching fire, and it's attracting moneyed investors: leasing residential solar energy systems to homeowners who pay a monthly fee to enjoy clean energy, without the up-front costs...

Sunrun pioneered the idea of the solar lease in 2007, and still controls most of the market. Depending on where a customer lives, the program entails either a solar lease, which consists of the consumer paying a fixed amount monthly regardless of how much power the system produces, or a power purchase agreement, whereby the customer is billed only for the amount of power his system generates. The solar company owns all the equipment, and the leases generally span 20 years...
