Swedish New #Sustainability Act

#RE100

The Swedish government wants to introduce a law that primarily affects 2,000 major Swedish companies to implement a sustainability report. If it goes through it shall enter into force on 1 July 2016. The Act is based on an EU directive in September 2014.

Many believe that the current voluntary sustainability reports deemed to be superficial reports designed to keep the company’s stakeholders in a good mood for sustainability. Some representatives believe that the new law can serve as a decision-making model and thus an effective management tool.

What we know about the law are among others companies to explain how they work with a range of sustainability issues. Current areas to be considered are environmental issues, social issues, issues regarding employment such as work environment, respect for human rights, anti-corruption and bribery.

Description of the diversity policy apply to the company’s board. The goal of the policy and how the policy has been applied and the result of the policy’s implementation. If the company does not apply any diversity policy, the reasons for it noted. Applies only company in the last 2 years, met more than one of the conditions for “big business”.

This bill defines “large companies” of companies that meet at least two of the following conditions. The average number of employees in the company amounts to more than 250 pieces. Total assets will amount to more than 175 million (20 million) or net sales amounted to more than 350 million (40 million euros).

Enterprises of “public interest” is likely to include listed companies, insurance companies and credit institutions Even companies with “social-bearing activity” can be covered and can be comprised of electric utility or other activities in infrastructure and in health care.

Advantages of a sustainability may be that the company has an in-depth dialogue with all stakeholders and understanding of the challenges. Good survey of sustainability activities and the risks and opportunities. More benefits are to involve management in sustainability efforts.

Auditor should verify that the non-financial report has been submitted. No claim today that the report must be certified.

Last but not least, your brand is affected positively by sustainable business. Maybe we dare say that a sustainable business gives your business even more good years on the market.

(INSUDENE)/ GAIADOC) – #ICSD2015 EMERGENCY #SDG hoax

Climate Change Centre Reading does support the “#GlobalGoals” but to acknowledge and support the ratification of the Zero Draft document TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: THE 2030 AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT is #SDGhoax and equal to signing a planetary death sentence.

I refuse to debate what is common sense.  I am a sensible person who does not normally sign petitions.

– THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT.. (not completely right, not completely wrong)

Emergency proposal for United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015 

Replacement to Draft Proposal for the United Nations Summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda (25 to 27 September 2015 New York)

The International United Nations Legal Agreement To Restore the Global Commons to its Required Natural State

This text gives a new sustainable bright option for humankind. You are here faced with two roads, one bright, worthy and wise, another deeply dark, selfish and floored, we ask you to take the bold step to read on and ensure that it is agreed at this meeting.

The The time for procrastination has long since passed; the world is in a state of emergency and further inaction is gross negligence. The actual and anticipated impacts of our current use of resources as well as its unintended consequences, and the short-term and long-term effects that are known and yet to be known have all contributed to the state of emergency. Any denial of the state of emergency is eclipsed by the moral imperative and legal obligation to abide by the precautionary principle.
