Three things this week: US Navy backs CDP; Chinese Banks; CalPERs Featured

Written by 

  1. The US Navy is asking its largest suppliers to report its GHGs and reduction strategies to CDP, citing energy as a potential weapon and the need to be able to go off-grid as needed. The US military is the world’s largest user of fossil fuels, and the Navy expects its suppliers to get them to 50% renewables by 2050. Expect those suppliers to turn around and ask their suppliers, and their suppliers' suppliers..you get the idea… More… To learn everything you need to know about GHG management in 30 minutes – go here.


  2. Chinese banks and their investors face US $1.69T in environmental risk because their lending and investing activities are not in step with emerging Chinese environmental policies according to a study released this week. Key investments at risk include agriculture, energy generation, steel, cement and chemical manufacturing. I suspect Chinese banks and their investors are not alone at this party.


  3. CalPERS' Climate Risk Reporting Proposal Overwhelmingly Passes at Anglo American – another one of many companies facing shareholder proposals for ESG reporting… Check out our FastTrak reporting service – to align your first or repeat report to expectations of shareholders.
