Major investor groups expand climate change target list

first_imgMajor investor groups expand climate change target list FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):A large group of global investors and asset managers have added 61 companies to the list of corporations they will push to take more action on climate change issues.When Climate Action 100+, which is backed by 289 investors with nearly $30 trillion in assets under management, launched in December 2017 it targeted the 100 energy and transportation companies that are among the largest greenhouse gas emitters in the world.The expanded list of companies represents both carbon intensive ones and those “with significant opportunities to accelerate the transition directly at the regional and global level and help achieve the goal of the Paris Agreement” of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels, Stephanie Maier, Director of Responsible Investment, HSBC Global Asset Management Ltd., a unit of HSBC Holdings PLC, said in a statement.The five-year engagement initiative aims to convince companies to implement a strong framework for board oversight and accountability on climate change, reduce emissions, and disclose climate risks and plans consistent with the June 2017 recommendations of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, or TCFD. The voluntary guidelines were intended to create an internationally consistent way for companies to assess and publicly disclose potential financial risks associated with climate change.Climate Action 100+ was among a number of movements involving state and local officials, businesses and investors in the U.S. who committed to advancing the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change after President Donald Trump in 2017 pledged to withdraw the nation from the deal. Climate Action 100+ is organized by five partner organizations: Ceres, Asia Investor Group on Climate Change, Investor Group on Climate Change, Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change and Principles for Responsible Investment.More: Investors with $30 trillion to press 61 more companies on climate targetslast_img read more

Raise alcohol buying age: poll

first_imgNZ Herald 2 July 2012Raising the age at which people are allowed to buy alcohol has been given overwhelming support in a HeraldDigiPoll survey. More than half of those polled supported a purchasing age of 20 for all types of licensed premises and a further 25 per cent supported raising the age for liquor stores and supermarkets but keeping it at 18 for bars and restaurants. Although the survey showed that support for a higher purchase age had fallen slightly since last year, the higher age remained by far the preferred choice with a total of nearly 80 per cent….Asked which purchase age they preferred in Parliament’s review of liquor laws, 54.4 per cent of respondents said 20 years old, and 25 per cent said 20 for off-licensed stores. Just 19.4 per cent wanted the age kept at 18 for both on-licences (bars and restaurants) and off-licences (supermarkets and bottle stores).…Mrs Collins revealed last month she had asked the Justice Ministry to research international examples of minimum pricing, which is a relatively untested initiative. Asked by pollsters whether they supported the move, which could double the price of some drinks but reduce heavy drinking, 56.5 per cent of people opposed it and 40.6 per cent supported it. read more

AITEO Cup: Fierce Battles in Ijebu-Ode, Benin City

first_imgEdo Queens defied all predictions to hold champions Rivers United to a 0-0 draw in their first leg, quarter-final match at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt on Wednesday and look forward with high expectations to Saturday’s return in Benin City.Coach Edwin Okon and his crew were somewhat stunned not to secure a win over the visitors, but will also plan for an away win when both teams take to the pitch of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium as the 2017 AITEO Cup competition hits the home run. A place in the semi finals is what is on offer, just as it would be in six other venues where the quarter –final matches will be concluded on Saturday, and even in Uyo, where Akwa United and Katsina United are playing their first leg due to a postponement.In Ijebu-Ode, a mouth-watering South-West derby is at hand as Osun United, 1-0 winners over NPFL side Sunshine Stars in the first leg played in Oshogbo on Wednesday, try to dig their feet into the ground for a place in the last four.However, they have to be wary of the Omoluabi Giants’ ace forward Tosin Omoyele, a clinical marksman who has notched a number of important goals this season and got the lone goal in Oshogbo.Another combustible arena will be the Rwang Pam Stadium, Jos where NPFL champions Plateau United will do all in their power to overturn a 0-2 first leg reverse against Niger Tornadoes in Lokoja.At the same venue where Plateau United were brought down to earth (Confluence Stadium), Confluence Queens will look to turn the tide against Abia Angels, who won their opening leg in Umuahia by a lone goal.ABS FC have a tough job at hand against FC IfeanyiUbah at the Kwara State Sports Complex, Ilorin, having lost the first leg 3-0 in Nnewi, while Lafia City Stadium is the setting for Nasarawa Amazons and Bayelsa Queens. The Queens topped the first leg 1-0.In Calabar, Pelican Stars will also seek to overturn a first leg lone goal deficit against Ibom AngelsThe return leg of the clash between Akwa United and Katsina United Feeders will hold at the Muhammadu Dikko Stadium, Katsina on Wednesday, 27th September.AITEO Cup Q’final(2nd leg Matches)WOMENNasarawa Amazons Vs Bayelsa Queens (Lafia: 0-1))Pelican Stars Vs Ibom Angels (Calabar: 0-1)Edo Queens Vs Rivers Angels (Benin City: 0-0)Confluence Queens Vs Abia Angels (Lokoja: 0-1)MENPlateau United Vs Niger Tornadoes (Jos: 0-2)Sunshine United Vs Osun United (Akure: 0-1)ABS FC Vs FC IfeanyiUbah (Ilorin: 0-3)Akwa United Vs Katsina United Feeders (1st leg)Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Freshman continues family tradition

first_imgBRYAN FAUST/Herald photoAdjusting to the college life as a true freshman is no easy chore.Now, just imagine how hard it would be with the added pressure of being the top incoming recruit in the nation.Brittney Dolgner — with a résumé full of accolades such as 2005 Player of the Year — is up to the challenges, namely dealing with the demands of contributing right away and replacing one of UW volleyball’s steadiest players of the past decade, Aubrey Meierotto.Heck, she’s even taken Meierotto’s old jersey number — lucky No. 7 — although she selected it for a completely different reason.”I picked the No. 7 because I have seven people in my family,” Dolgner said. “It’s just something that sticks in my head … they are basically why I’m playing right now.”It’s easy to see how family is so significant to Dolgner, as three older sisters — Dara, Deanna, and Desi — are the reason why she began playing volleyball.The Dolgner name has become a staple in the small town of Waupun, Wis., as the three senior Dolgners each won two state titles for the Warriors, while Brittney won four straight en route to becoming the state’s all-time leader in kills with 2,480. The youngest Dolgner, Brandi, will be a freshman at Waupun High this year.While it may seem as though Dolgner has a great amount of hype to live up to, she doesn’t really see it that way for two main reasons.One: she talks to all four of her sisters every single day to keep her mind clear from both issues concerning volleyball and overall college life.Two: Wisconsin’s upperclassmen have taken her under their wing and have made her feel at ease in her new surroundings.”Adjusting to the team has been really easy because they’re such nice people and the coaches just help you through it,” Dolgner said.Dolgner’s first true test came in the AVCA College Volleyball Showcase two weekends ago against NCAA tournament-quality teams No. 8 Texas and No. 15 Ohio.Judging by the spark she provided for the Badgers in the very first game, she passed with flying colors.As Texas began to break away in the first game of the season, up 26-21, UW head coach Pete Waite turned to Dolgner to give the team some energy.The minute she came in, Dolgner made an impact and put the Badgers right back in the game. She had several key digs, a kill and a service ace as Wisconsin came within one point of the Longhorns before losing 28-30.With her impressive debut, Dolgner quickly became UW’s go-to attacker as she led the team in kill attempts with 40 in the consolation game versus Ohio.”As the days [of practice] went on, she got better and better,” Waite said. “She got more comfortable, and she’s athletic enough where she can bring a lot of different shots and bring some great things for us.”She was hitting out of the back row for us and we’ve not had anybody doing that on a regular basis for years, so she’s a great addition.”However, Dolgner had to understandably play through a good amount of first-match jitters, saying she was certainly as nervous as she’s ever been.”It was very nerve-racking,” Dolgner said of her first game in the UW Field House. “I was so nervous; I was shaking and everything.”And yet she has plenty to improve upon in her game.”I still have to get used to the blocking,” Dolgner said. “I’m not used to such powerful hitters coming from high school since our conference was kind of weak.”Serving is another facet of Dolgner’s game she believes she still has work on, too, as was evident from her team-high seven service errors in the AVCA Showcase.”My shoulder was just a little sore,” she said. “It’s not a big thing. I’m just not consistent yet.”Waite knows that once the first-year player becomes fully accustomed to the college life in her freshman year, he will have one of UW’s finest on his roster.”We know she’s very capable of making some great plays,” Waite said. “Now it’s a matter of getting used to the team, getting used to the sets, the team, everything.”She’s just going to get stronger and stronger.”last_img read more

Syracuse tops UConn, 79-76, in wild affair to stay undefeated

first_imgPARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — Trevor Cooney, Michael Gbinije and Jim Boeheim walked down the lobby of the Atlantis Resort to a hero’s welcome. Cooney was still in uniform, two large ice bags taped to both of his knees. He waved to the roaring orange-clad fans roped off just inches away. Boeheim high-fived a security guard, whose other hand was occupied with a camera phone, documenting the moment.When the head coach sat down for his press conference, he could hardly be heard over the “Let’s go Orange” roars that permeated throughout the hallway.“It’s like an NCAA (Tournament) game,” Boeheim said.Renewing a Big East rivalry for the first time, Syracuse (5-0) took the lead over Connecticut (4-1) on the back of three-straight 3-pointers in the second half and muscled its way to a 79-76 win in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis. Syracuse fell down by 10 early and nearly gave up a 10-point lead late, but held on to defeat its first ranked opponent following a season where it had only two top-25 victories.Tyler Lydon scored 16 points and recorded 12 rebounds. Five players scored at least 13, and the Orange recorded 41 rebounds to UConn’s 33.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Both teams are getting up and down at the end, making plays, scoring baskets,” Cooney said. “Those are the type of games you want to play in.”First a long Lydon 3 swished through the net to tie the score at 44. He allowed himself a small celebration running up the court after clanking a fade-away two off the rim just moments before.On the next possession Malachi Richardson hit a 3 from the corner in front of the SU bench with a hand in his face. When SU got the ball back 23 seconds after that, it was a wide-open Gbinije that drained a 3 on the opposite end. UConn coach Kevin Ollie called a timeout and a much larger celebration ensued. It was a 50-47 lead that would only grow and never be given away.Not when Rodney Purvis hit three 3s in less than three minutes to cut the lead back to two. And not when Cooney lost track of the clock and had to shoot a 35-foot 3 with eight seconds left in the game.SU had sustained the first UConn punch. When Sterling Gibbs scored on an easy outlet layup off a Cooney miss, it gave him eight points in the first three minutes and the Huskies a six-point lead. But by the time he stood isolated in the corner of the court, hands at his hips after recording his fourth foul with in the second half, it was clear that Connecticut had no answer for how SU would fight back.“(Syracuse) played a great game in the second half,” Ollie said, “really took it to us offensively.”Cooney didn’t realize that the shot clock was about to expire. Only when there were two ticks left did he heave a miss off the side rim. Tyler Roberson, who had muscled on the glass for four offensive boards, skied up for his fifth and final one. The ball spent the last three seconds of the game in the hands of Richardson, who heaved it all the way down court.The finish was anti-climactic in its sudden end, but antithetical to a game in which no one ever seemed dead. As the clock ran out and Syracuse celebrated, a rivalry was reborn, and Syracuse picked up a season-defining win.After the fanfare of the press conference and after his players began to leave the makeshift locker room, Boeheim went back out to the concourse and sat alone on an armchair big enough to be a throne. There was no one around him, no one to high-five. Just a moment to soak in, if only temporarily.“It was a great game,” Boeheim said. “I can’t say enough for these guys. It was just a really good win.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 26, 2015 at 7:47 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3last_img read more
