How to make money out of the environment - while saving it | Spear's WMS

How to make money out of the environment - while saving it | Spear's WMS | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it

To some eyes, the mountainous shrublands that cover the high Andean slopes above Bogotá look like an unproductive wasteland; indeed, that is the meaning of the word páramo, first used by Spanish Conquistadors to describe this wild and remote place. But as I squelch through the wet grasses, breathless with altitude, I am told by Colombian conservationists how valuable this landscape actually is — economically as well as environmentally. Not only does it help to reduce flooding on the plains below, but it also purifies the water used by the people and industry in Bogotá, and it does these jobs much more cheaply than concrete-engineered solutions would cost.

 

The environment and its services may not be your cup of tea — or indeed glass of fresh Colombian water — but a global revaluation of their economic benefit is under way. Alongside the management of fiscal deficits, banking regulation and packages to stimulate growth, this theme — money growing on trees and in lakes and on hillsides — is now starting to feed into our thinking about the global economy. How best to keep the services provided by nature is a question that is rising in prominence, and fast.

'CSR is like teenage sex, everybody says they are doing it, but few actually are. AND those who really do it, do it really bad :/ '

La Milla extra, RSC mucho más que el cumplimiento legal.

India passes world's first corporate responsibility law

India passes world's first corporate responsibility law | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it

August 20, 2013 GreenBiz

The law requires large Indian firms to spend a portion of their profits on sustainability initiatives, such as solar panels.

 

India is the first country to pass a corporate responsibility law requiring larger companies to spend 2 percent of each year's profit on those kinds of initiatives.

The law kicks in for companies with a profit of at least $80 million over the past three years.... http://www.greenbiz.com/blog/2013/08/20/india-passes-worlds-first-corporate-responsibility-law

... auch wenn es nur 2% sind und für Unternehmen gilt, die mindestens 80 Mio $ Gewinn in den letzten 3 Jahren gemacht haben gilt, es ist ein Anfang ...

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, August 22, 2013 11:15 PM

Wouldn't it be great if there were a competition among nations to be the most sustatinable, with the most corporate responsibility, and the most governmental responsibility.

Panda faeces 'could be answer to energy problems' - Telegraph

Panda faeces 'could be answer to energy problems' - Telegraph | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it

Scientists have identified bacteria found in the guts of pandas that can break down plant material into ethanol for use as an alternative fuel.

Researchers have isolated 40 species of bacteria from the faeces of two pandas at Memphis Zoo, Ya Ya and Le Le, capable of improving biofuel production.

 

They found the microbes were highly efficient at breaking down the fibrous material in plant into sugars that would then be fermented by other bacteria.

They were looking for the bacteria in pandas because the endangered species eats almost exclusively a diet of woody bamboo.

Their guts have evolved to digest the bamboo rapidly to allow them to get enough nutrients from this nutritionally poor food.
