Responding to COP27’s Main Takeaways

The recent COP27 once again highlighted urgent topics that need global attention, results that were achieved (and unfortunately also those that were not), and provided enough challenges and considerations for organizations and countries to deliberate forthcoming change. A new agenda topic is that of loss and damage which unified countries in agreement about establishing a fund for assisting and supporting developing countries. In this article, we briefly elaborate on some of the main topics discussed, highlight takeaways of the event that are worth considering as part of an organization’s sustainability agenda, and specifically, consider how these challenges can be addressed through the activation of material ESG topics. The downloadable checklist for materiality activation is a helpful tool to support your organization in starting the process.

Seaweed to Improve the Soil – a New Zealand Success Story

When New Zealanders Jill Bradley and her partner Keith visited an organic farm that used seaweed to improve the soil, it changed their lives forever. They researched which seaweed had the best qualities, and started a business to supply farmers with natural biostimulants. Some twenty-five years later, Agrisea is a sizeable player in New Zealand’s agricultural sector. The Sailors for Sustainability, Floris and Ivar, speak to Tane and Clare Bradley, the company’s current directors, to learn more about their business model and their products’ environmental benefits.

Accelerating the Circular Economy in the Port of Rotterdam

At Finch & Beak, we are always curious about the sustainable developments taking place in the cities that we work in, and Rotterdam is one of them. In 2016, a shocking 20% of the national CO2 emissions of the Netherlands was accounted for by the port of Rotterdam. Time to take action: between the period 2016-2020, the port of Rotterdam managed to reduce its CO2 emissions by 27% to 22.4 million tons. A noteworthy reduction that can be explained by the switch to more renewable energy sources and the exploitation of waste-to-value opportunities. The port of Rotterdam is making an impact through discovering the benefits of the circular economy.

Tackling the Rapidly Growing Issue of E-Waste

As consumers are increasingly aware of environmental issues, topics such as climate change, ocean plastics and alternative proteins are grabbing the collective attention. An equally important issue, however, still seems to be hiding in plain sight: e-waste. Its scale and impact have grown because of the pandemic, as companies are purchasing new hardware to accommodate homeworking while the office equipment sits idle. As such, it is estimated that approximately 25 percent of IT equipment in Europe will not be used in the future. Electronics companies have a great opportunity in measuring the impact of their core activities and products, and collaborating with value chain partners on knowledge-sharing initiatives in order to ultimately reduce the generation of e-waste.
