He has put big money behind everything from blow-dry bars to horse feed to cherry juice. And now the British millionaire is looking to solve one of the thorniest problems in the world of renewable energy. His quest began almost three years ago, when he went out looking for wave-power companies in which to invest.

You're really spoiling us: has Ferrero been wrongly accused over Nutella?

But that is just what the French environment minister Ségolène Royal did with Nutella this week – claiming that the palm oil it is made from contributes to deforestation and does “considerable damage” to the environment. Cue irritation from the Italian company Ferrero that makes the chocolatey spread and a backlash from Royal’s opposite number in Italy. Industry observers including Greenpeace and WWF also leapt to the defence of the company, pointing out that it has in fact led the industry in cleaning up its act and goes much further than most competitors on responsible sourcing of palm oil.

The company has met its commitments to the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), the voluntary mechanism for controlling the practices of the industry, a year ahead of time.

Managing waste in emerging markets

We discuss how governments can react to contain human and ecological health risks. Economic growth in emerging economies is bringing prosperity, rising living standards, and overdue relief from poverty, but increased consumption typically increases resource use—especially the use of plastics—and waste production. As Exhibit 1 illustrates, the rapid surge in waste volumes since 2007 is straining waste-management systems in many developing countries, with negative effects in economic, health, and ecosystem terms. The Philippines is a case in point: it produces 2.7 million metric tons of plastic waste per year—600,000 metric tons in metro Manila alone. While the country has high waste-collection rates overall (84 percent nationwide), 17 percent of collected plastics is lost into the marine ecosystem after collection because of illegal dumping and poor landfill siting and operating practices.

Green Nudge, Changer les comportements pour sauver la planète. Adopter une attitude responsable, tant au niveau individuel que collectif, n'est pas chose aisée : si la majorité d’entre nous a de bonnes intentions (78% se déclarent très concernés par le changement climatique), celles-ci ne sont que trop rarement suivies d’actions. Pourquoi n’agissons-nous donc pas en conformité avec nos déclarations d’intention? Contrairement à ce que nous pensons, nous ne sommes pas des individus rationnels qui agissent en accord avec nos intérêts, même les plus fondamentaux… Une nouvelle discipline, l’économie comportementale, a démontré que nous sommes des êtres faillibles, tout à la fois rationnels et émotionnels.
