What is ESG? ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. There is growing evidence that suggests that ESG factors, when integrated into investment analysis and decision making, may offer investors potential long-term performance advantages. ESG has become shorthand for investment methodologies that embrace ESG or sustainability factors as a means of helping to identify companies with superior business models. ESG factors offer portfolio managers added insight into the quality of a company's management, culture, risk profile and other characteristics. By taking advantage of the increased level of scrutiny associated with ESG analysis, ESG Managers® Portfolios seek to identify companies that we believe: Are leaders in their industriesAre better managed and are more forward-thinkingAre better at anticipating and mitigating riskMeet positive standards of corporate responsibilityAre focused on the long term Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Batho dit-elle vrai sur l'empreinte carbone de l'énergie nucléaire ? Invitée de France Info lundi matin, jour anniversaire de la catastrophe nucléaire de Fukushima, la ministre de l'Ecologie et de l'Energie a vanté les mérites du nucléaire, "énergie décarbonée". Delphine Batho a par ailleurs affirmé que le renoncement de l'Allemagne au nucléaire avait fait "monter ses émissions de CO2". Vrai ou faux ? Delphine Batho et le nucléaire : "Envisager l'inenvisageable" © FranceInfo Delphine Batho vante sur France Info les mérites du nucléaire, "énergie décarbonée" Faux. Car le nucléaire, ce ne sont pas que les centrales, c'est toute une filière : il faut extraire l'uranium, l'enrichir, le transporter, construire les centrales — et la fabrication du béton produit énormément de gaz carbonique. Parler d'énergie "décarbonée" est donc un abus de langage, un greenwahsing entretenu par Delphine Batho mais initié par Nicolas Sarbozy en 2007. Autre phrase de Delphine Batho hier matin sur France Info : Delphine Batho pointe du doigt la consommation allemande de charbon

Mistra Urban Futures-Knowledge about and Approaches to Fair and Socially Sustainable Cities - KAIROS KAIROS is a transdisciplinary research project with focus on the social dimension of sustainability. The premise of the project is the way in which globalisation, migration and urbanisation characterise our time and place new demands on participation and co-creation. Cities' role in a changing world The complex societal problems that come with the on-going societal transformation is embodied and impacts on a local level. Justice and social sustainability People's views of and needs for security, development and justice are important for a society’s development. Social sustainability constitutes a political equilibrium point, a "balance point", between the three basic values of security, development and justice. Participation and co-creation We cannot avoid issues of conflicting goals, but we need to be aware and find ways how to handle them. The project's theoretical framework The framework describes the project's theoretical and conceptual premises. Subprojects 1. 2. 3.

Welcome to World Airport Codes The Social License To Operate The Social License has been defined as existing when a project has the ongoing approval within the local community and other stakeholders, ongoing approval or broad social acceptance and, most frequently, as ongoing acceptance. At the level of an individual project the Social License is rooted in the beliefs, perceptions and opinions held by the local population and other stakeholders about the project. It is therefore granted by the community. It is also intangible, unless effort is made to measure these beliefs, opinions and perceptions. Finally, it is dynamic and non-permanent because beliefs, opinions and perceptions are subject to change as new information is acquired. The differentiation into approval (having favorable regard, agreeing to, or being pleased with) and acceptance (disposition to tolerate, agree or consent to) can be shown to be real and indicative of two levels of the Social License; a lower level of acceptance and a higher level of approval.

Les marchés carbone, ou comment gagner des millions grâce à la pollution - Climat C’est encore mieux que de transformer le plomb en or. Une poignée d’industries très polluantes ont réussi un tour de force : convertir des millions de tonnes de CO2 en dizaines de millions d’euros, grâce aux systèmes d’échanges des « droits à polluer » mis en place dans l’Union européenne. Un pervers effet d’aubaine que dénonce un rapport listant ces nouvelles grandes fortunes du marché carbone. Et une belle arnaque à venir pour les consommateurs. Certains rêvaient de transformer le plomb en or. Petit rappel pour celles et ceux qui auraient raté tous les épisodes précédents (Kyoto, Copenhague, débats autour de la « taxe carbone »…). Opacité des marchés carbone C’est ce que pointe un rapport publié par l’organisation non gouvernementale britannique Sandbag qui s’appuie sur les données fournies par la société de conseils et d’informations Carbon Market Data spécialisée sur les marchés carbone. L’ONG britannique dénonce la très grande opacité des marchés carbone. Ivan du Roy

Non-Financial Reporting and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Sur les 5 dernières années, l’empreinte carbone des Français a stagné 27 août 2013 - Comment a évolué ECO2Climat en 5 ans ? Au sens d’ECO2Climat, les émissions totales liées à la consommation des Français ont légèrement augmenté depuis 2008. Sachant que la population française a augmenté de 2% dans le même temps, cela nous donne une légère diminution de 0,7% des émissions par personne. La stagnation du pouvoir d’achat sur les 5 dernières années s’accompagne d’une stagnation de la consommation de biens et de services par personne, et par la même de la consommation d’énergie nécessaire à la transformation des ressources en produits finis. Analyse des principales variations entre 2008 et 2012 Energie des logements : -14% des émissions par personne Les produits informatiques : +40% des émissions par personne Consommation de viande : -8% des émissions par personne Les émissions de GES liées à la consommation de viande sont en baisse, principalement à cause d’une baisse de la consommation de bœuf. Déplacements en avion : +7% des émissions par personne
