Hope. We just stepped away from the podium at New Metrics in Boston, and were encouraged to see so many ESG experts focused on improving, and remaining optimistic about climate action.

Change. This Bloomberg feature on Republican Jay Faison’s Quest to Save the Planet (And the GOP) is a great read, covering how opinions form based on identity vs. science, how carbon-capture technology might one day make ‘clean coal’ a reality, and attempts to find the 0.2% of Republicans who advocate for the health of the planet.

Make American Great Again. But how? Honoring the US commitment to the Paris climate agreement is a good place to start. Teddy Roosevelt, Republican and reformer said it: "We don't inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."

Sustainability reporting is a growing business trend.  More than 80% of the Fortune 500 currently issue some type of sustainability report.  Although most players in the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events) industry have sustainability initiatives in place, sustainability reporting has been slow to develop.  However, there are increasing signs that reporting is trending up.  The latest report from Greenview (Green Venue Survey & Report) shows that 45% of the venues responding to the survey report on their sustainability performance.

MICE companies are reporting their sustainability performance in a variety of ways -- from one page RFP responses to comprehensive GRI(Global Reporting Initiative) reports that can run up to 100+ pages.

Three things this week:

  1. Conflict mineral reporting continues to confound US companies. According to a Bloomberg brief, almost three quarters of all companies still cannot trace the source and chain of custody of 3TG in their supply chains. 

  2. Professional sports leagues and teams continue to embrace the crucial role of raising fan awareness of environmental and social issues. Partnerships like the one announced this week between the Atlanta Falcons and Novelis – to expand recycling efforts at games – provide an opportunity to engage the masses on sustainability issues.

  3. 2016 temperatures are once again record hot. A report from Climate Central looks a little deeper at the hottest US cities, but also the cities which are warming the fastest. The hottest cities are all in the south of course, but the cities with the fastest increases in temperate are scattershot.
