We partner with footwear creators (designers and brands) to pave the way for the next-gen sneakers and design the future of footwear. During the @drp_ville festival we showcase and highlight 3 of our creators 👇
1/ Redd Smith

He's a footwear designer based in Bristol 🇬🇧 He's exploring the bridge between virtual and physical sneakers by designing in #VirtualReality and using the disruptive 3D printing tech of @TheZellerfelds Redd is currently designing footwear at @GravitySketch ✍️ Image
👟 His model on our booth is the “Regenerate”. Inspiration for this concept came from the way plants and trees generate growth around man-made objects such as railings and walls.

He will be present on our booth Saturday June 25th. Image

As part of our growing Sustainability work, we’ve been inspired by leading climate scientists, such as Katharine Hayhoe, who are engaging hard-to-reach audiences on the issue of climate change.
#wessexarchaeology #wessexarch #sustainability #sustainabledevelopmentgoals
This links to important heritage sector debates on the importance of engaging communities on the need for rapid action essential to help our communities adapt and develop resilience to increasingly frequent flooding events.
#wessexarchaeology #sustainability
Heritage and archaeology’s role in building resilience is an area we have been researching within archaeological organisations and related disciplines. Evidence from the past can help contextualise perspectives on climate change and develop narratives with time depth.

The @EnR_Network held its first in person meeting in over 2 years in #Lisbon. After a first day of fruitful discussion on collaborative action between Energy Agencies, today, the network held a seminar on #energy and #water #efficiency at national and local levels.
The President of @EnR_Network, @nelsonlage highlighted the role of energy agencies in the #GreenTransition, as enabling agents acting between international and local level, to balance the three dimensions of the #EnergyTrilemma: Security Affordability #Sustainability
Sec of State @Joaogalamba described the vision for national-local level governance towards #NetZero in 2050: "energy agencies work to mobilize local authorities, economic players, and citizens to fight #ClimateCrisis, to foster cities’ pivotal role to deliver the #EUGreenDeal"

Just in: our report on #bitcoinmining & #climatechange

Full report: batcoinz.com/quantifying-th…

Findings
1. Using #BTC mining to combust leaking methane can eliminate 5.32% of all global CO2-eq emissions...

#ESG #sustainability #methane #UNEP #IPCC #CCAC #climatechange Image
2/9

2. By aggressively targeting leaked methane, Bitcoin mining has the potential to avoid 0.15% of warming by 2045, potentially earlier.

#BitcoinIsGreen #environment Image
3/9

3. No other existing technology is currently equipped to achieve this feat at this pace.

In short: Reducing methane emissions is the strongest lever we have to slow climate change. #Bitcoin mining is the fastest, most reliable hand we have upon that lever. Image

Investors in @BarrickGold have a huge opportunity to press the multinational gold mining giant at next week’s AGM to face up to #HumanRights abuses by police at its North Mara gold mine in #Tanzania. Here are some problems we found in its latest #ESG Sustainability Report 🧐🧵
Barrick states it “cannot be accountable for the actions of a national police force”, yet it has an undisclosed agreement between the Tanzanian mine & police to pay, equip and accommodate police guarding the mine, integrating them within its security structure.
Barrick has repeatedly tried to frame #humanrights abuses as “personal injury”, an approach contested in a related case at the UK High Court last month. With at least 4 deaths and 7 assaults documented since Barrick took full operational control, it has a lot more to answer for.

#SocialJustice is a flawed concept in India.
Social Justice can only be achieved through #sustainability.

A young man of 22 yr left his promising job of an investment banker , went to the jungles is Amazon and found that poor people who used to extract rubber from rubber trees
Were paid peanuts . He also found that cotton farming occupies 2% of the world's agricultural land but usesn 30% of the pesticides.
He bought rubber from the people of Amazon by paying them thrice the amount and he bought organic cotton and also paid the cotton growers handsome amount. He said social justice should not be a part of charity but should be a part of business where both the parties should benefit

Why have there been so many #climate deals yet so little progress in slowing global warming? 📈

🇩🇪 has the most ambitious #sustainability plans in Europe. @kristina_bogner and I show that an overemphasis on techno-economic solutions may still be hindering progress. A 🧵 (1/6)
German policies have heavily emphasized the need to find technological solutions. They feature relatively little reflection on how well these match to societal context, system dynamics, with little participation of civil society.

But these are just words, what about deeds? (2/6)
Deeds follow words. We see that most funded research heavily emphasizes technological progress. Funding mechanisms are build on policy agendas, so this makes total sense. Research on social issues gets sidelined to "complementary research" instead of being an integral part. (3/6)

This week, for #SustainabilitywithETCH, we are diving into the world and thoughts of Waste Management.

A thread: #Facts focusing India.
According to the Swachhata Sandesh Newsletter by the @MoHUA_India , as of January 2020, 147,613 metric tonnes (MT) of solid waste is generated per day, from 84,475 wards
Urban India generates nearly 0.15 million tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) per day of which, only 68 percent is collected for disposal. An explosion in the generation of MSW in Indian cities due to a burgeoning population and even faster urbanization

Over the past 14 months that Will Falk and I have been fighting the Thacker Pass lithium mine, one of the most common questions we're asked by journalists has been "So if you oppose electric cars, what is your solution?"
Thread ➡️ Image
At first, the question seems to be asking "how can we save the planet?" But that's not actually what most people are asking, as becomes clear when we answer that question.
Most people are actually asking "how can I still have a car, or the luxury that a car provides me, and not destroy the planet?"

And of course, the answer is, you can't.

What they're really saying is, "I like cars and I rely on them for my lifestyle, my work, and my enjoyment."

1/4 We improve the existing printing formula by introducing a more #sustainable filler — glass beads. They are produced from 100% recycled material. The process is 100% powered by renewable energy and gives a significant properties increase of up to 60% and 10% CO2 reduction
2/4 Our mission is to solve the housing and #sustainability crisis simultaneously. Our #3Dprinted homes will not have much fewer carbon emissions but will withstand natural disasters better. Our panels just passed 190 mph wind load test at 250%. Here are the wind results tests
3/4 1. We applied the generative design approach to improve the structural performance of #3Dprinted panels. This provides up to 30% of the panel strengthening with just 2% material volume increasing in zones with maximum stress

Some initial thoughts on the #berkshirehathaway annual report.

Random fact, the cover is black for the first time since 2005. Prior to that, 1988 featured a black cover with some funky neon blue.

Buffett points out that Berkshire paid $3.3 billion or 8/10ths of ALL federal corporate income tax in the United States. That's some $9 million per day to the US Treasury.
Float amounts to an incredible $147 billion. Better still, because of share repurchases, the figure is up 25% over the past two years to just shy of $100k per $BRKA. That's $66 per $BRKB share of (essentially, and for now) better-than-cost-free money working for shareholders

#Energy cooperation can be part of improved #Israel-#Turkey ties, but it should take a more climate-friendly & regioanlly-inclusive shape compared to past attempts to export Israeli natural gas to Turkey. @GabiAMitchell & I spoke with @MenekseTK @arabnews arabnews.com/node/2018336/m…
2. When #Israel & #Turkey reconciled in 2016, natural gas export from Israel to Turkey was presented as a major benefit for Israel. However, negotiations didn't yield results due to differences on prices, geopolitical hardships related to pipleline route & lack of mutual trust..
3. Since, #Israel consolidated its strategic ties with #Greece & #Cyprus, warmed ties with #Egypt and is cooperating with these & others via the #EMGF, in which #Turkey isn't a member. Israel isn't likely now to shift direction & seek export via Turkey at the expense of others...
