“Sustainability, which encompasses environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns, is moving closer to the top of board agendas as companies realize how central sustainability is to corporate competitiveness and a company’s continued ability to operate.”

“Yet because there is no single, standardized approach to incorporating ESG”

as a started: lower your electricity bill and install some solar panels & batteries – especially if your company is located somewhere sunny.

I hope sustainability (a lot of CEOs do not even know what this word means) is more to Mrs Sullivan than a “marketing instrument” like “we repaint your factory in green and hope to hide the smoke of your factory’s chimneys”.

It does not work like that – if your company produces things that harm people or the balance mankind depends on – it is not contributing to sustainability but the opposite.

Actually there are companies that have embraced sustainability and even gained productivity.

A win-win.

As a starter… get atleast 5x DVDs about sustainability… one i can recommend:

“Demain / Tomorrow” – “the world is full of solutions” – https://www.amazon.com/Demain/dp/B018ID4YIE

“the invisible hand of the free market will organize EVERYTHING for you. (or maybe not, maybe it does not give a damn about you)”

“theory of libertarians: only people that make money are 1. valuable 2. positive for society (no matter how you make that money, be it drugs, weapons or human trafficking. (paint your company in beautiful colors and make it look like you are an philanthropist…))”

i am demanding: FREE TRADE OF EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME! (yes you will also sell drugs on sundays) (it would be funny if it was not so real)

#FDP die unsichtbare Hand des freie Markt regelt ALLES. (oder auch nicht) #FDP Theorie (noch heute): Nur Menschen die Profit machen sind: 1. etwas wert 2. positiv für die Gesellschaft (ob mit Drogen, Waffen oder Menschenhandel ist EGAL) Sei ein guter Mitbürger und verkaufe deinen Kindern Drogen! (falls Sie kein Geld haben, gib ihnen einen Kredit)

It reads like this: “If a bank gives you a loan, it is charging you interest on money, that the bank never possessed in the first place.”

(a private bank can borrow 10$ from the FED or 10€ from the ECB of “real cash money” and lend out 90$ / 90€ in “artificial loan / debt created digital money” (“bank money” / Buchgeld, “checkbook money” / Giralgeld) and charge interest on that.

If you pay back 10% of your loan, the bank’s break even point is reached, but it (of course) insists that you pay back 100%+interest or sell off your house cheap and fast.

if interest rates are low – they simply charge more for the management of your bank account.

They earn money – no matter what they do.

Neulich auf Twitter: “Bank müsste man sein. Wenn sie dir einen Kredit gibt, kassiert sie jahrelang Zinsen auf Geld, das sie nie hatte. Wenn du pleite gehst, gehört dein Haus der Bank & wenn alles schief geht, wird sie vom Bürger/Staat gerettet. Einfach unglaublich!”

even a local bank’s employee (!) told me in my face: “i know a bank is a criminal organization.”

wow. i hope his honesty does not get him fired.
