Beyond Reputation Management
The Equator Principles (EP) is a risk framework for determining, assessing, and managing social and environmental risks in project finance. Created over 10 years ago as a tool for corporate social responsibility, this research on EP asks: Have these voluntary guidelines had actual social and environmental impact on the ground in the affected project communities? In the hotly contested debate on this question, stakeholder voices, particularly those of NGOs, fuel critiques of Equator Principles implementation, suggesting that project sponsors and Equator Principle Financial Institutions (EPFIs) are only “positive reputation seekers” on sustainability issues. This research contributes to the debate about Equator Principles governance and its effect on sustainable development by focusing on the involvement of civil society organizations in governance, addressing the following questions: - Can the creation of novel institutions by civil society address the perceived weaknesses of institutional regulatory environments in some developing or host-countries? - How do these novel institutions address shortcomings of transnational private governance? - Can these novel institutions be a viable alternative to chronic environmental and social assessment reports? In other words, can new governance arrangements involving civil society project sponsors generate increased positive outcomes through the actual implementation of Equator Principles? The research offers explanations for needed reforms for positive implementation outcomes particularly in the context of poor and/or emerging economies. The current research suggests that: - Such potentially novel institutions involving civil society organizations, by collaborating with and tapping into local knowledge of project affected communities, can promote a sense of project ownership, ease of accountability, and presence of transparency, leading to better implementation of project social and environmental policy. - Participatory measures foster interaction and deliberations between project sponsors and project-affected communities, leading to the democratization of project finance. Context and contribution: - This research draws on extant research on EPs, sustainability assessment, neo-institutional theory, transnational private governance, project finance, and corporate social responsibility. Within this scope, and to the knowledge of the author, no study has examined the potential for project sponsors to engage directly with project-affected communities to shape Equator Principles implementation outcomes.

What is HYDROPOWER? What does HYDROPOWER mean? HYDROPOWER meaning, definition & explanation
What is HYDROPOWER? What does HYDROPOWER mean? HYDROPOWER meaning - HYDROPOWER definition - HYDROPOWER pronunciation - HYDROPOWER explanation - How to pronounce HYDROPOWER? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Hydropower or water power (from the Greek: ????, "water" ) is power derived from the energy of falling water or fast running water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes. Since ancient times, hydropower from many kinds of watermills has been used as a renewable energy source for irrigation and the operation of various mechanical devices, such as gristmills, sawmills, textile mills, trip hammers, dock cranes, domestic lifts, and ore mills. A trompe, which produces compressed air from falling water, is sometimes used to power other machinery at a distance. In the late 19th century, hydropower became a source for generating electricity. Cragside in Northumberland was the first house powered by hydroelectricity in 1878 and the first commercial hydroelectric power plant was built at Niagara Falls in 1879. In 1881, street lamps in the city of Niagara Falls were powered by hydropower. Since the early 20th century, the term has been used almost exclusively in conjunction with the modern development of hydroelectric power. International institutions such as the World Bank view hydropower as a means for economic development without adding substantial amounts of carbon to the atmosphere, but dams can have significant negative social and environmental impacts. As with other forms of economic activity, hydropower projects can have both a positive and a negative environmental and social impact, because the construction of a dam and power plant, along with the impounding of a reservoir, creates certain social and physical changes. A number of tools have been developed to assist projects. Most new hydropower project must undergo an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment. This provides a base line understand of the pre project conditions, estimates potential impacts and puts in place management plans to avoid, mitigate, or compensate for impacts. The Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol is another tool which can be used to promote and guide more sustainable hydropower projects. It is a methodology used to audit the performance of a hydropower project across more than twenty environmental, social, technical and economic topics. A Protocol assessment provides a rapid sustainability health check. It does not replace an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA), which takes place over a much longer period of time, usually as a mandatory regulatory requirement. The World Commission on Dams final report describes a framework for planning water and energy projects that is intended to protect dam-affected people and the environment, and ensure that the benefits from dams are more equitably distributed. IFC's Environmental and Social Performance Standards define IFC clients' responsibilities for managing their environmental and social risks. The World Bank’s safeguard policies are used by the Bank to help identify, avoid, and minimize harms to people and the environment caused by investment projects. The Equator Principles is a risk management framework, adopted by financial institutions, for determining, assessing and managing environmental and social risk in projects.

The Shared Societies Project and Club de Madrid towards Rio+20
The Club de Madrid organized together with the Friederich Ebert Stiftung on 10 November 2011 a debate on the issues at stake of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development on the UN Headquarters in NY. Four Members of the Club de Madrid, Wim Kok (Prime Minister of The Netherlands, 1994-2002), Jennifer Mary Shipley (Prime Minister of New Zealand, 1997-1999), Ricardo Lagos (President of Chile , 2000-2006), and Luisa Diogo (Prime Minister of Mozambique, 2004-2010), offered their point of view of the key issues under the UNCSD negotiation process. Club de Madrid and The Shared Societies Project Towards Rio+20 (United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development) What is needed? Not to renegotiate the principles of sustainable development but to find the political will to integrate the economic, social and environmental pillars already agreed to in an institutional framework putting human well-being at the center of concern, and that reinforces principles of intergenerational equity and common but differentiated responsibilities. Great challenges: - Developed countries must shrink environmental footprints as fast and as far as possible while sustaining human development achievements. - Developing countries must continue to raise their people's living standards while containing increases in their footprints, recognizing that poverty eradication remains a priority.

Industrialization has altered the composition of the global atmosphere. There has been huge impact on ecological and socio-economic systems. Due to rapid industrialization the entire world is experiencing the heat of global warming, environmental degradation and depletion of scarce resources. A proactive and timely intervention and action is necessary by government, regulatory agencies, corporate bodies, NGOs and individuals to combat global warming & environmental degradation. Banking sector is considered as backbone of any economy. Banking sector is the main source of financing for corporate world which is responsible for global warming and environmental degradation. There is a symbiotic link between finance, environment, social and governance (FESG) and the Financial Institutions and Banks could play a vital role in developing a sustainable world. Environmental degradation may further affect the quality of assets as well as return of banks. Countries around the globe have initiated several positive actions to address these grave challenges. Banks in and around the world are also surging ahead towards promoting green economy and green industry. In this backdrop Green Banking has emerged and recognized as an important strategy to address sustainable concerns. The green initiatives will synergize collective responsibility and support approach to anticipate and prevent potential negative impact on the environment and society. Green banking has two dimensions. First, the way the banking business is being done and the second dimension relates to where the banks invest its money. As far as Green Banking in India is concerned, the banks are way behind the schedule compared to the global trends. None of the Public Sector Banks or the Private Sector Banks has adopted “EQUATOR PRINCIPLES” of risk management framework for determining, assessing and managing environmentally and socially risk projects. Only few of the Indian Banks are signatories to UNEP-FI (United Nations Environment Programme - Finance Initiative). This declaration is endorsed by over 200 civil society organizations including banks which give a clarion call to all the financial institutions and banks to embrace six commitments and take immediate steps to implement the same in fostering the sustainability. Further, very few banks are also signatories to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)-India, an initiative to prevent dangerous climate change and protect our natural resources. Six Indian Banks have voluntarily agreed to incorporate “Principles of Collevecchio Declaration”. According to the British Business Newspaper and Financial Times, none of the Indian Banks have incorporated environmental objectives into their operations except Yes bank. It seems there is no systematic attempt to integrate the environmental concerns into the business operations by Indian Banks. Further, there are no specific RBI guidelines for banks on Green Banking. However, RBI has issued circular advising banks to integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations. The RBI has also advised the banks to put in place an appropriate plan of action for sustainable development, albeit all this is voluntary on the part of the banks. Green banking has potential to transform the Indian economy. In this context there is a dire need to create awareness among all the stakeholders about environmental responsibility and thereby help to restore the natural environment. As a responsive organization, the Post-Graduate Department of Business Administration. Rani Channamma University, Belagavi in association with its affiliated B-Schools has owned the responsibility of organizing an International Conference on “Green Banking for Green Industry and Green Economy”. The conference shall encourage, familiarized the concept of environmental friendly investments thereby the industries integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations. The conference shall herald a new era in sensitizing and strategizing project financing considering environment viability along with commercial viability. The deliberation and discussion will enable to develop policy guidelines and action plan in achieving sustainable development.

Extracting troubles - Kashagan oil field
The Kashagan oil field in the Caspian Sea is one of the largest oil fields discovered in the last few decades. The field is developed by a consortium of oil companies including Eni, Total, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Shell, Inpex and KazMunayGaz with financial support from several banks such as BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Societè Generale, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Mitsubishi Trust and Banking Corporation, Mizuho Bank and the ING Group. Civil society groups have been raising concerns with BNP Paribas and other financial institutions about the environmental and public health dangers associated with Kashagan. An international Fact Finding Mission in the Northern Caspian region, conducted in September 2007, found evidence of extremely high environmental and social impacts and risks, and violations of international standards, including the Equator Principles and IFC Performance Standards, in the development of Kashagans offshore and onshore operations. The Caspian Sea is the largest reserve of fresh water in Central Asia. The natural life of a whole continent depends on it. If the oil industry destroys this sea, Kazakhstan will remain behind with a deserted land and a dead sea.

SWR2015: Panel 4 - Sustainable financing: Raising the Bar in ASEAN
Panel Participants: Ms. Jeanne Stampe, Asia Finance and Commodities Specialist, WWF International Mr. Vincent Choo, Chief Risk Officer, OCBC Bank Mr. Ian Hay, Head of Sustainable Business Asia, HSBC Ms. Yeo Lian Sim, Chief Regulatory Officer, Singapore Exchange Mr. Dharsono Hartono, Chief Executive Officer, P.T. Rimba Makmur Utama ---- A number of international banks have adopted risk management frameworks such as the Equator Principles to guide their lending and investment decisions. This would in principle help minimise their risk of financing potentially socially and environmentally damaging projects. Most financial institutions in our region have yet to join the bandwagon. What can we do to encourage more ASEAN banks to raise the bar? Are they facing any implementation challenges? Will it help when sustainability reporting is made mandatory by the stock exchanges? Should central banks play a more active role in promoting sustainable financing? This panel discussion was recorded at the 2nd Singapore Dialogue on Sustainable World Resources 2015, held at the Gallery Ballroom of the Ritz Carlton Millenia, Singapore on 13 May 2015. The Dialogue was organised by the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA). To learn about the SIIA and what we do, visit http://www.siiaonline.org/page/Home
Highlights of the First International Green Credit Forum
In 2012, IFC joined hands with bank regulators from Asia, Africa and Latin America to launch a powerful platform for the development of national environmental and social risk-management guidelines for financial institutions. The new Sustainable Banking Network is facilitating innovation and regulatory advances by sharing knowledge and technical resources. The momentum for this initiative came from the first International Green Credit Forum hosted by IFC and the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) in Beijing in May 2012. This six-minute video captures the discussions among participating regulators and banks at the Beijing. It also covers emerging market regulatory initiatives, China's regulatory experience with the Green Credit Policy, and international Equator Banks' experiences. IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector. During our sustainable finance journey over more than five decades, IFC has worked with financial institutions in emerging markets to create business opportunities and strengthen lending portfolios through sustainable banking practices. Following the launch of the Network, IFC and its partners will host the 2nd International Green Credit Forum in Bangladesh in March 2013.

Panel 1: Reconstructing the Agency of Form Panelists: Pier Vittorio Aureli, Neyran Turan Moderator: Charles Waldheim Introduction by Mohsen Mostafavi Re]FORM: New Investigations in Urban Form aims to reposition the discourse of urban form within contemporary urban theory. Inspired by Henri Lefebvre’s seminal text Urban Form (1970), this conference aspires to provoke new investigations and debates on urban form and its relevance in contemporary urbanizations. Specifically, by acknowledging the fluctuating conditions of political, economic, and technological contexts and practices, this conference interrogates the meanings of “form” and its role in contemporary urbanization through the agency of the design disciplines, and gauges such discourses against the debates on urban theory situated within contemporary urban conditions and transitions. ​ Almost half a century has passed since the publication of Urban Form by Henri Lefebvre, the urban, as he avers, is — “a place of encounter, assembly, simultaneity” — which constitutes a logical form and embodies a kind of knowledge, has been vastly defined through geographical, political and economic substances and practices ever since. Particularly in the past three decades, emerging technologies have drastically challenged the idea of urban and its form ranging in scale from the planetary to the individual. The unprecedented urban complex generally prioritizes the practices over its agencies and thus obscures the logics of the urban upon which it operates. The process of contemporary urbanization produces radical phenomena and urban objects, yet prioritizing urban form as a key instrument for contemporary urbanization remains an elusive notion. Recovering the epistemological agency of urban form is a pressing matter.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

4. Nuclear Secrecy and Ecology
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The United States government employed a variety of approaches to protect citizens from danger, including public education, nuclear weapons testing, and gathering data about the effects of nuclear testing. The US government's testing of nuclear weapons at the Bikini Atoll is used as an example of government approaches. Nuclear testing led to ecological devastation, leading the US government to move Bikinians to another island. The case highlights the far-reaching environmental, economic, and health consequences of nuclear weapons testing. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction to Managing Technological Dangers 10:14 - Chapter 2.

*LIVE* RightsTalk: Business and Human Rights - Whose Responsibilities?
Overview There have been rapid developments in recent years in clarifying the responsibilities of both governments and corporations for the impact of the actions of corporations on human rights within a state and transnationally. The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights 2011 have set parameters for these responsibilities, and some governments and corporations have acted to respond to them. International documents, national legislation and court decisions around the world have proliferated, and there is also a move to draft a treaty. This talk will explore the key issues and responsibilities in this area, including the legal obligations on governments to act, the extent of the corporate responsibility to respect human rights (and if this has legal consequences), and the need to have access to remedies for victims. This talk is of relevance to government officials, senior corporate officials, legal practitioners, judges, civil society, scholars and others. Bio Professor Robert McCorquodale is the Director of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law in London. He is also Professor of International Law and Human Rights at the University of Nottingham, and a barrister at Brick Court Chambers in London. Before embarking on an academic career, he worked as a solicitor in commercial litigation with King & Wood Mallesons in Sydney and Herbert Smith Freehills in London. Robert’s research and teaching interests are in the areas of public international law and human rights law, with a particular focus on business and human rights issues, as well as the rule of law. He has published extensively on these areas, and has provided advice and training to governments, corporations, law firms, international organisations, non-governmental organisations and peoples concerning these issues.
