PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Speech: Sustainability and reporting: Europe at the forefront

I also want to thank Teresa FOGELBERG for her active contribution to the European Commission's work on non-financial information. Today, I want to focus on the EU proposal on non-financial, corporate reporting, published in April this year. Europe is not here to teach other parts of the world any lessons. Let me put the issue of sustainability and corporate reporting in its wider context: Europe is still recovering from the worst crisis in 50 years.

A crisis which has spread from the financial sector to the every-day life of many citizens and companies. And populism is on the rise across Europe. We need safer financial institutions.

About the Course This course introduces the academic approach of Sustainability and explores how today’s human societies can endure in the face of global change, ecosystem degradation and resource limitations.

Introduction to Sustainability

The course focuses on key knowledge areas of sustainability theory and practice, including population, ecosystems, global change, energy, agriculture, water, environmental economics and policy, ethics, and cultural history. This subject is of vital importance, seeking as it does to uncover the principles of the long-term welfare of all the peoples of the planet. As sustainability is a cross-disciplinary field of study, this foundation requires intellectual breadth: as I describe it in the class text, understanding our motivations requires the humanities, measuring the challenges of sustainability requires knowledge of the sciences (both natural and social), and building solutions requires technical insight into systems (such as provided by engineering, planning, and management).

Green Living Tips - - Your Trusted Source for Green and Eco-Friendly Products

It takes a certain amount of dedication to permanently give up a car in favor of a bike, but even an eco-slacker can make it work for short trips that don't require hauling a lot of stuff: picking up milk at the local grocery store, after-dinner ice cream at your favorite dessert spot, your morning yoga class, brunch with friends at the coffee shop. Ride your bike for trips shorter than 2 miles and you could cut your carbon footprint significantly, save money on gasoline and car maintenance, and increase your fitness level -- all at the same time. - If you have to make an appliance purchase, try to make sure it is Energy Star Rated to save on your bill and to help the planet use less resources to run everyday items. - Choose solar items instead of gas, electric powered items to run your household items.

Resilient People, Resilient Planet

The panel, which was chaired by Tarja Halmen, president of Finland, and Jacob Zuma, the president of South Africa, took an appropriately broad view of sustainability, looking at measures of human development, as well as environmental and natural resource indicators. And not surprisingly it paints a mixed picture. While highlighting progress with respect to a number of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), it also notes the continued deterioration in many of the resources and biosystems on which continued human progress depends. But perhaps the most noteworthy part of the report is its recognition of the need for a people-centered approach to sustainable development. Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A Mixed Bag.
