Introduction

“More than 30 million people were displaced in 2010 by environmental and weather-related disasters across Asia, experts have warned, and the problem is only likely to grow worse as climate change exacerbates such problems. Tens of millions more people are likely to be similarly displaced in the future by the effects of climate change, including rising sea levels, floods, droughts and reduced agricultural productivity. Such people are likely to migrate in regions across Asia, and governments must start to prepare for the problems this will create.”
– Asian Development Bank Report1

For 2012, and the 2011/2012 Sustainability Report specifically, our Company has self-declared a grade B against the GRI G3.1 Guidelines. This year’s Sustainability Report has also received verification by a third-party external verification agency, FIRA Sustainability BV. Their verification is evidenced by a “+” sign next to our grade B, which reflects their verification and approval of our tracking systems. Throughout this report, you will find the KPIs that we have addressed, along with additional information regarding our most critical initiatives and programs.

Conclusion 22 13. Resources 23 1. Introduction: This document will attempt to apply the 4 principles of natural capitalism in an effort to transform Bimdagen Nursery into a sustainable organisation. It is also recognised that many of the recommendations made relate to environmental conservation in that they require further processing and are not totally sustainable and renewable. Sustainability encompasses maintaining a delicate balance between the human need to improve lifestyles and feeling of well-being on one hand, and preserving natural resources and ecosystems, on which we and future generations depend. (Global Development Research Centre, 2007) This involves using renewable resources at or below the rate of renewal. According to Lovins (1999, pp146-147), the journey for businesses and society as a whole to reach natural capitalism involves four major shifts: • The dramatic increase in productivity of natural resources, • The shift to biologically inspired production models, • A move to a solutions-based business model, and • A reinvestment in natural capital. These principles will form the foundations of this report and the recommendations made. 2. Scope of......

Acc 310 Sustainability Report

...October 22, 2013, 1:30 pm An introduction to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and sustainability reporting The Sustainability Initiative at NC State was started through the endowed gift of Lonnie Poole. As part of the Initiative we are examining sustainability issues throughout the curriculum. For accountants one of the most important issues of sustainability is reporting information to stakeholders. Just as we are learning about financial reporting in Intermediate Financial Accounting we also want to learn about sustainability reporting. The purpose of this case is to make you aware of sustainability reporting and sustainability reports. On the moodle site I have assigned each student a company that has prepared a report based on the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework and filed it with GRI. Each student should obtain the company’s report from the GRI webpage (globalreporting.org) or from the company’s corporate webpage. Sustainability reporting is not required Even though more and more companies are providing sustainability reports there is no requirement to report or any required standards like GAAP. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) currently provides a framework, with over 3,500 companies filing under the GRI framework. However, given that there is no enforcement of reporting companies may select different levels of reporting and different indicators to report on as well. This results in varied reporting and sometimes very incomparable......

Partnerships - Companies can partner with any of the five key categories: NGOs, environmental experts, governments, communities and other companies. Partnering with NGOs has proved fruitful for many companies such as Chiquita and Rainforest alliance, MacDonald‟s with Conservation International.

Sustainability Report of Faber Castell

...sustainability report 2011 The idea is an ancient one. Often, the marks seem like enigmas. They contain hidden meaning, waiting to be rediscovered. Sometimes they wait thousands of years. This ancient idea is still very much alive. Ideas, thoughts, insights, confessions, promises, lies, vows... Who can measure the feelings expressed? Comprehend the joy and pain? Grasp the passion? Who can say how much has been written, drawn, sketched, designed, painted, in the history of mankind? Who can say how much has not been written, drawn, sketched, designed, painted simply because there was no pen to hand? Editorial Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, Chairman and CEO of Faber-Castell AG The values of any well-managed family business must include sustainability, social and environmental responsibility, and human virtues such as tolerance, humbleness and honesty. My great-great-grandfather, Lothar von Faber, was a businessman of great social dedication, and his descendants have followed his example as a matter of duty. The Social Charter signed in 2000 prohibits discrimination and child labour and protects our employees against exploitation. The agreements of the International Labour Organization (ILO), to which the Charter commits us, are for me no more than natural standards for anyone engaged in business. In order to achieve long-term success, you have to think in terms of the future. For me as a businessman it is extremely important......
