Fast Company. The Cottage Industry Of High-Energy Food That Keeps Silicon Valley Buzzing. Techies are big customers for the food industry in the Bay Area. The food keeps coders fueled, and coders keep the eateries running. Now many places are specializing in options that keep energy levels up without any of the personal health implications of drinking two Red Bulls an hour for a whole weekend. No matter what size company, whether it's a studio office of 20 people or a large tech campus, I found in the course of this article that many of the dining habits of Bay Area tech people are focused on the same few companies. Here's a look at the cottage industry of energy food service that keeps Silicon Valley buzzing. Typical Take-Out And Hangouts “A lot of startups are competing over the quality of their lunches, and there is an entire swath of catering startups that have emerged because of it,” says John Dvorak, data scientist at NodePrime.

Earlier this year, McDonald's committed to start buying verified sustainable beef by 2016. At the time, the company didn't have a definition for sustainable beef. Now it appears that the fast-food chain will let suppliers in various regions find ways to source sustainable beef--the idea being that sustainable beef production looks different depending on where a restaurant is located. In an interview with Bloomberg BNA, Jeffrey Hogue, McDonald's senior director of global corporate social responsibility and sustainability, explained the decision, saying that beef can be grown anywhere, but “the environmental impacts in one place will be a lot different than the environmental impacts in another place.”

Every supplier will, however, have to follow the sustainability principles currently under development with the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef, a group made up of organizations including Cargill, McDonald's, the World Wildlife Fund, and Walmart. Ráquira y Sogamoso en el 'top 5' de los más contaminados de Colombia - Archivo - Archivo Digital de Noticias de Colombia y el Mundo desde 1.990 - eltiempo.com. Ráquira, un pueblo que huele mal El municipio ocupa el cuarto lugar con el aire más contaminado del país. Falta de control y vigilancia incrementa el problema. Enfermedades aumentan. María del Carmen Sánchez asegura que la tienen 'rodeada' y todo porque alrededor de su casa se encuentran ubicados cerca de 15 hornos, donde se producen las artesanías que han hecho famosa a esta población boyacense. La mujer, de 65 años, oriunda de esta localidad, padece de una grave enfermedad en el pulmón izquierdo que le produce asfixia y la obliga a usar inhalador, razón por la cual cuando son encendidas las chimeneas debe salir 'despavorida' de su residencia, ubicada en el barrio Santa Bárbara de Ráquira, rumbo al campo.

"Comemos humo a diario, pero especialmente los viernes y fines de semana porque encienden todos los hornos al mismo tiempo y la humareda se hace insoportable, por eso vivo en el médico", aseguró Sánchez.

I can’t think of anything that illustrates the human cost of doing business more than the tragedy this past April in Bangladesh. More than 1,100 men, women, and children died when the Rana Plaza building, which housed a number of garment factories, collapsed.

Most were garment workers who were ordered by supervisors to report to work, even after inspectors deemed the building unsafe. Millions of people around the world work in dangerous and unhealthy conditions, earning a nominal income to deliver the products we consume. While the factory collapse in Bangladesh is a terrible tragedy, it’s another wake-up call that business leaders need. We can no longer ignore the human side of our global supply chains. Now is the time for all of us to recognize and embrace social sustainability--much in the same way we’ve focused on environmental sustainability for the past 20 years--as a mission-critical way of doing business. Social Sustainability Mitigates Risk Businesses are responding. 20130626_Informe_calidad_aire_%202007-2010. Method, United By Blue Create A Supply Chain For Ocean Plastic.

Last month, Method announced an ambitious plan to turn plastic trash from the ocean into detergent bottles. It was an exciting idea, but unlike every other material that Method uses in its products, there is no real supply chain for ocean plastic. It only comes from people actually going to the beach and picking up the trash, which doesn’t happen frequently enough to build a business model. Except that United By Blue, an apparel company that removes one pound of ocean trash for every product sold, does just that.

United By Blue has garnered plenty of attention for its ocean conservation model. But what to do with all that plastic? United By Blue can’t supply Method with all the ocean plastic it needs, but the apparel company does have a significant amount to give away. Even after supplying Method with its ocean plastic needs, United By Blue is left with extra trash from its cleanups, including PET plastic, styrofoam, and car tires (seriously).

Misión 10a EXPOMETÁLICA 2014. Strategic management. Strategic management involves the formulation and implementation of the major goals and initiatives taken by a company's top management on behalf of owners, based on consideration of resources and an assessment of the internal and external environments in which the organization competes.[1] Strategic management provides overall direction to the enterprise and involves specifying the organization's objectives, developing policies and plans designed to achieve these objectives, and then allocating resources to implement the plans.

Academics and practicing managers have developed numerous models and frameworks to assist in strategic decision making in the context of complex environments and competitive dynamics. Strategic management is not static in nature; the models often include a feedback loop to monitor execution and inform the next round of planning.[2][3][4] Corporate strategy involves answering a key question from a portfolio perspective: "What business should we be in?
