The billion-dollar solar story has just begun The billion-dollar solar story has just begun
‘Carbon footprint’ cannot remain an aloof term any longer and we cannot but be aware of the energy we use each day. Additionally, as the price of fossil fuels and other nonrenewable energy sources keeps moving up, consumers are anyway being forced to think about other sources of energy.
Anecdotes from the life of domestic workers in Delhi and in defence of Sumari's rights Anecdotes from the life of domestic workers in Delhi and in defence of Sumari's rights
'A domestic animal is one, such as a dog or a cat, that is sufficiently tamed to live with a family... So, carrying this analogy further, can we say that domestic helpers are tamed to cater to the needs of the so-called upper- and middle-class households?
The great delusion: A world with endless water supply - Part 2 The great delusion: A world with endless water supply - Part 2
Since water cannot be created but only managed, should we place our greater faith in public service bodies or private corporations? Should water service be privatized, after all?
Or, is there a choice here? Perhaps not. Already, drinking water is a full-fledged commodity packaged in bottles and sold as a branded consumer good.
The great delusion: A world with endless water supply - Part 1 The great delusion: A world with endless water supply - Part 1
Each reason, however minor it may seem in isolation, is a dot that connects with the other dots.

Shipping emissions – or ‘bunkers’ in the jargon of the UN climate negotiations (bunker fuel is the name of fuel oil used in ships) – are large and growing fast.

The essence of the CSR 2.0 DNA model are the four DNA responsibility bases, which are like the four nitrogenous bases of biological DNA. In the case of CSR 2.0, the DNA responsibility bases are value creation, good governance, societal contribution and environmental integrity.

One step ladder after the other... they never seemed to end and grew more precarious with each step I took. I was terrified and as I climbed (with my heart in the mouth), I knew that what I was going to witness was the nadir of human reality. On reaching the top, I witnessed several low, temporary shacks made of brick with asbestos or tin roofs. Here, t
Global warming: From diverse sources with differential economic effects Global warming: From diverse sources with differential economic effects
The reality of global warming has come under constant scrutiny by the lay public – largely because of some unfortunate and illegal access to private emails sent between scientists foremost in this field and some errors of fact published by the IPCC in their latest reports. The most quoted reference is to the statement that all Himalayan glaciers may h
Responsible supply chain management: To create risk-free zones Responsible supply chain management: To create risk-free zones
Change will, thus, not be made overnight. It is to be expected that buyer companies will engage in a period of transition where traditional RSCM approaches are continued and gradually phased out, while capacities in relation to RSCM 3.0 are built.
