Why Social Sustainability Should Be Part Of Every Business 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. Some of you might be thinking that social sustainability is a phrase made up of feel-good buzz words. Here are three key points that every business leader should keep top-of-mind: Social Sustainability Mitigates Risk Simply put, ignoring social sustainability is a liability--to both your brand and product quality--that businesses can no longer afford.

Portail d'information des maisons départementales des personnes handicapées MDPH Why We Cant Clean Up the Pacific Gyre :: Fake Plastic Fish | Live Life With Less Plastic Over the next few years you are going to hear a lot of claims about programs to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

First of all, it’s a misnomer to call it an island. There are several ocean gyres full of plastic. The problem is even bigger than cleaning up the North Pacific Gyre. We’re Dumping More Plastic Into the Ocean Than We Can Clean Up. How can we ever clean it up when every day, more and more single-use disposable products are manufactured, used, and disposed of? Focusing on Cleanup Misdirects Attention from the Real Issue. The Plastics Industry sponsors cleanup efforts without reducing the production of single-use disposable plastics in the first place. You are encouraged to implement the sections and steps that help achieve your company’s specific goals. What experts have to say

Welcome - The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science A Brief Introduction to Typography | Buscando Trazos agosto 27, 2012 § La Tipografia és un dels elements clau de tot disseny gràfic. M’atreviria a dir que és l’ELEMENT.

Bill Moyers: Ending the Silence on Climate Change Ending the Silence on Climate Change from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo. Remember climate change? The issue barely comes up with any substance in our current political dialogue. But bringing climate change back into our national conversation is as much a communications challenge as it is a scientific one. This week, in an encore broadcast, scientist Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, joins Bill to describe his efforts to galvanize communities over what’s arguably the greatest single threat facing humanity. Leiserowitz, who specializes in the psychology of risk perception, knows better than anyone if people are willing to change their behavior to make a difference. “[A] pervasive sense up to now has been that climate change is distant — distant in time, and distant in space,” Leiserowitz tells Bill. © 2013 Public Affairs Television Inc.
