Shaping the Horizon for Long Term Value Creation

Companies are outlining more and more sustainability issues in their annual reports. Recently published reports prove that companies in the same industry address different material topics in their Form 10-K, which is the annual report required in the United States by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for traded companies. The inconsistency in reporting, offers various initiatives opportunities to raise the bar for sustainability accounting standards. Organizations like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) and so on continuously improve their standards.

Foldable Containers: a Revolutionary Logistics Innovation

As a spinoff from the Delft University of Technology, the company Holland Container Innovations (HCI) was a 2008 start-up to market the existing idea for a foldable container. The concept of the foldable container is easy to understand. Normally empty containers are transported over land and sea, as well stored and handled. When a container is folded its volume contains 25% of its original size and therefore the folded containers are much cheaper to reposition.

Climate Goals: How Postal Companies are Beating COP21

Early December, Paris will be flooded by global leaders from governments, businesses, NGO's and civil society organizations to join COP21. Sustainability practitioners from all over the world will bend their heads over how to achieve the climate change goals on a global scale. Although the negative messages about governments not reaching climate objectives for 2020 kept us busy lately, there are still evidential cases for reducing the carbon footprint in time. One of those success stories is coming from the postal industry, where the International Post Corporation (IPC) announced that the sector's participants have reached the 2020 ambition of reducing 20% CO2 emissions already in 2014.

Sustainable Mobility is on the move

If 66% of the people in the Netherlands are interested in driving an electric vehicle, why don’t we see them drive one? The most important reason for this is the number of electric cars on the market: they are there, but in really small numbers. Besides that, an average household of 2,2 persons with a yearly income of 30.000 Euro per year is not interested in a trendy and expensive two-seater.

Turning Your Tesla into a Green Clean Money Machine

As early as 1505, Emperor Maximilian had the vision to establish a postal network in the European Empire, appointing Franz von Taxis to run it. After the collapse of the Empire in the beginning of the 19th Century, the Thurn and Taxis postal system continued as a seperate organization. In current times, with new technologies and postal volumes dropping between 3-9% annually such a network is no longer required. But what can we learn from history when smart charging is applied in the roll-out of the European electrical vehicles recharging network?

Is Volkswagen the Lance Armstrong of the Car Industry?

The revelations of Volkswagen manipulating emissions tests show how fibbing with one’s impact on society can lead to big legal and reputational consequences. Apparently, the German automaker deemed the upside of selling large numbers of cars more attractive than the risk of getting caught with fraudulent software. The story brings back memories of Lance Armstrong’s Tour de France victories – titles that were pulled back after he was caught using doping. What lessons can be learned from the Volkswagen debacle?
