Three things: conflict minerals confound, pro sports stepping up, hot cities and getting hotter Featured

Written by 


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.
