Nissan, Mexican plant develop wind-wind plan

Nissan, Mexican plant develop wind-wind plan | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

Nissan’s Aguascalientes plant in Mexico has become a leading user of renewable energy.

 

The manufacturing plant recently integrated wind power into its energy mix, meaning it now generates 50 per cent of its total energy needs through renewable sources.

 

As a result, the Nissan March, Versa, Sentra and the soon-to-be-released Nissan Note are all produced in Aguascalientes in a cleaner, more sustainable way.

 

Since the beginning of the year, 45 per cent of the plant’s energy for manufacturing comes from a wind farm in Oaxaca, which is operated by Nissan’s strategic partner ENEL.

 

This is not the first time Nissan Mexicana has invested in renewable energy. In January 2012, Aguascalientes set a new industry standard by becoming the world’s first automotive plant to use electric energy generated through biogas.

 

This innovative method uses waste from the town’s landfill site as fuel to generate energy for the plant.

Het paper legt uit hoe Apple met haar enorme bedrijfswinsten onze samenleving tekortdoet door zich te gedragen als financiële investeerder in plaats van haar winsten in de ‘echte’ economie te investeren.

"A rewilder's job is to help hasten the recovery process of natural habitats that have been decimated by human activity," he says. "The work of a rewilder would draw heavily on distributed sensor technology."   

 

Some of these are fun to think about but I reckon they are still on the conservative side. And some have existed for quite a while now: my job has been "rewilding" for over two and  a half decades now. First with habitat reconstruction then within consciousness and the inside of people. I do like the title "rewilder".

Actually, the US is busy exporting its technology and savoire faire in the areas of GM foods, pesticides, industrial agriculture, and foods that have been grown under conditions that give them a structural competitive advantage.  The only way to stop the juggernaut is the for the rest of the world to say, "we don't want to eat this stuff."  You want to stop climate change?  Responsible, sustainable agricultural policy is the first step.

The Dawn of System Leadership (SSIR)

The Dawn of System Leadership (SSIR) | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

To solve society's most pressing problems requires a system leader who can catalyze collective leadership. The purpose of this article is to share what we are learning about the system leaders needed to foster collective leadership. We hope to demystify what it means to be a system leader and to continue to grow as one. It is easy when we talk about exemplars like Mandela to reinforce a belief that these are special people, somehow walking on a higher plane than the rest of us. But we have had the honor to work with many “Mandelas,” and this experience has convinced us that they share core capabilities and that these can be developed. Although formal position and authority matter, we have watched people contribute as system leaders from many positions. As Ronald Heifetz has shown in his work on adaptive leadership,2these leaders shift the conditions through which others—especially those who have a problem—can learn collectively to make progress against it. Most of all, we have learned by watching the personal development of system leaders. This is not easy work, and those who progress have a particular commitment to their own learning and growth. Understanding the “gateways” through which they pass clarifies this commitment and why this is not the mysterious domain of a chosen few.

Embracing the Future: the Smartest Cities In The World

Embracing the Future: the Smartest Cities In The World | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it
These cities that are doing the best at embracing the future are focusing on improving technology, equality, sharing, civic participation, and more.

Over the past several years, the idea of the being "smart" has emerged as a key mechanism for cities to find innovative solutions to the challenges that they are facing. Increased demand for infrastructure, housing, transportation, jobs, energy, food and water are all straining city governments and infrastructure, as people around the world flock to urban centers in hopes of a better life and more opportunity. For many years, the push to create smarter cities was led by technology companies looking for uses (and buyers) for their products. But in recent years, cities have begun to think more holistically about what being a smart city could mean, and have innovated new ways to modernize how a city serves its citizens.

Coca Cola, Heinz And Other Major Food Companies Warn Climate Change Threatens Business

Coca Cola, Heinz And Other Major Food Companies Warn Climate Change Threatens Business | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

But as ThinkProgress noted at the time, the real story was not a guacamole shortage, but the emerging reality of doing business in a warming world. While politicians continue to bicker over whether or not climate change exists, companies now have no choice in the matter — they must acknowledge the science and the risk and disclose the reality of that risk to their investors’ pocketbooks. Whether that risk actually manifests itself is another matter, but the fact that companies are increasingly putting climate change on their threat lists speaks volumes to the severity of the problem.

 

Here are seven other big food companies that disclose to investors that climate change poses a threat to their products and bottom lines.
