Hybrid Planes: The Power of Green Tarmac Taxiing

Since 2012, emissions for flights from and to the 28 EU Member States are included in the EU Emissions Trading System. And for a good reason, someone flying from London to New York and in return generates roughly the same level of emissions as the average person in the EU does by heating their home for a whole year. It is calculated that direct emissions from aviation account for about 3 per cent of the EU’s total greenhouse gas emissions and the number is rising, even if we take future fuel efficiencies into account. So the airline industry is increasingly under pressure for its emission-challenges.

Effective Partnering: Learning from the Past

As circularity is becoming a topic of interest with larger corporations around the globe, a question that emerges is how they can develop the necessary innovations to fuel the circular economy. With 68 percent of the top 100 companies from the Forbes Global 500 already engaging with start-ups in one form or another, fast-forwarding the development of dearly awaited innovations is definitely not a new challenge. INSEAD and 500 Startups conducted a research study based on the world's 500 biggest public companies that highlights what we can learn from past corporate experiences.

SDGs as Instrument for Business Integration

Last year, the United Nations and its member countries agreed upon a new development agenda, including 17 goals and 169 targets. A recent study by the Global Opportunity Network found that 32 percent of CEOs surveyed were aware of the SDGs, and 23 percent said that they were fully aware and are planning a response. What about the others?

From BlackRock to Black Angus: Adapting Global to Local

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has recently called for "urgent concerted policy responses" to deal with the growing threat of climate change to global food security. With predicted demand for ruminant meat to almost double between 2000 and 2050, which is in line with earlier reports concerning the growth effects of dairy and poultry on global warming, the FAO flags potential problems to be addressed – particularly on the issue of water scarcity. When looking at the broader range of materialities surrounding the highly globalized food industry, there appears to be a strong need for a local approach to address these issues in an effective manner.
