The 2016 U.S. Presidential election left a lot at stake for environmental policy and corporate social responsibility. But businesses have the power to push for the policies they need to ensure a sustainable future. “It’s important to tell lawmakers the business case you know so well,” said Anne Kelley, Ceres’ senior program director of policy and BICEP program. Businesses also have a responsibility to tell their success stories out loud over various forms of media, she said: “The money you’re saving, the emissions you’re bringing down, the materials you’re recycling.”

Comments Off on IKEA Launches Virtual Flea Market to Encourage Furniture Reselling, Sees 100% Success Rate

Big box retailers like IKEA profit from selling new furniture, so many were surprised to see the Swedish home furnishings giant encourage people to buy used furniture during a recent ad campaign. Created by Norway-based ad agency SMFB , the campaign used social media to ask the retailer’s fans if they needed any help selling used furniture. The response was overwhelming, and the agency and IKEA whittled it down to 50 lucky people. Then they took to social media and created a virtual flea market to connect sellers with people who were in the market for used furniture, rather than shelling out for new. Keep reading to see more of the unique ads that created such a buzz.

Runaway Global Emissions Make the Two-Degree Global Warming Limit Highly Unlikely

Comments Off on Runaway Global Emissions Make the Two-Degree Global Warming Limit Highly Unlikely

Global greenhouse gas emissions are expected to be eight to 12 billion tonnes higher than target levels in 2020, which means the hope of limiting global temperature increases to 2°C (35°F) this century is fading fast. These warnings come from a recently released United Nations report ahead of the body’s annual climate talks next week. Scientists previously identified the upper threshold of two degrees Celsius as the point where the worst effects of climate change could be avoided, but this would require a 14 percent reduction of emissions by 2020. Even if surveyed countries stick to existing emission-reduction agreements, according to the report, it is unlikely to be enough to mitigate the worst.
