“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.
As a starter… get atleast 5x DVDs about sustainability… one i can recommend:
I guess nobody argues it would be easier for mankind to learn to live in balance / sustainable on earth than to make Mars inhabitable (try to live in the saharah desert first in an Atmosphere without oxygen) but both should be tried.
Is Jahveh/God’s will to drop nuclear bombs on Iran? Seriously? Why not blow up the entire world at once? than we would be over with this ape theater.
The problem with a nuclear armed Iran: Saudi Arabia (long time enemy) will want nukes as well (Israel already got them) to “defend” itself (similar if North Korea has Nukes Japan will want nukes as well).
But the arms race (of course) never stopped with the end of the cold war (would be bad for business to run out of enemies/terrorists) so US/Israel feel “confident” lockheed martin has developed a nuke-shield (they also develop nukes) without fear of being nuked themselves. (not 100% sure)
Update: “Operation Merlin” – USA-CIA wanted to NUKE-FRAME IRAN! CIA WHISTLEBLOWER GOES TO JAIL FOR 3.5 YEARS!
After training in Persian in 1997, he was sent first to Bonn, Germany, and two years later to New York City to recruit Iranian nationals as agents for the CIA as part of a secret intelligence operation involving Iran’s weapons capabilities. From early 1998 to May 2000, Sterling assumed responsibility as case officer for a Russian emigre with an engineering background in nuclear physics and production, whom the CIA employed as a carrier to pass flawed design plans to the Iranians.
In April 2000, Sterling filed a complaint with the CIA’s Equal Employment Office about management’s alleged racial discrimination practices. The CIA subsequently revoked Sterling’s authorization to receive or possess classified documents concerning the secret operation and placed him on administrative leave in March 2001.
After the failure of two settlement attempts, his contract with the CIA was terminated on January 31, 2002.
Can mankind be saved from itself/self destructive capitalism?
Could be similar to a Pakistan vs India conflict (both in permanent conflict over small strips of desert (Kashmir)) but no one dared to drop a nuke on the other country – out of fear of revenge.
US-NATO-EU foreign policy for dummies / conclusion:
who ever has natural resources (oil)
buys our (US/EU) weapons (good for economy, jobs)
uses these weapons to help our geopolitical aims (kill off governments and countries “we do not like” (rivals in oil business? Libya, Syria, Iran, Russia)
… is our friend (Saudi Arabia, Israel).
“What is increasing Iran’s influence?”
“If it hasn’t been for the Iraq war – Iran would not have the influence it has today”
“Lebanon – gave rise to Hezbollah – gave Iran a hook in Lebanon”
“Yemen – THE worst humanitarian disaster today – the Saudi’s coalition bombing of Yemen – the Houthis have become closer to Iran in this reaction – the same in Syria”
“War has expanded Iran’s influence”
“I told you (Saudi Arabia) you may think by pushing Iran harder – you simply empower Iran in a way that you are going to regret”
“Israel government more and more trending right – not to catch votes but there are real ideological roots in this and what we are seeing today:
we have ideals
we will implement them
“might makes right” (wow, a Jew just justified everything Hitler did in 3 words! “good work!” “nothing learned” wohoo back to the stone-age!)
rule of the majority – not democracy
little interest in the power of the civil society or preserving civil society or human rights
disdain of international law
Israeli policies getting more and more aggressive towards Iran and Palestinians
“one man’s catastrophe is another man’s miracle” – these are not missteps but deliberate actions, Israel wants to keep every inch of Jerusalem and Gaza
remarkable coherence between President’s adviser during Obama/Trump (the same people)
Israel itself is building up the frustration and hopelessness to a point where it is going to explode, by not giving basic human rights to those people in the prison we call Gaza.
The policy of this government is weakening the security of Israel fails to find a way to negotiate with Palestinians.
just by the way: In history Israel / Jerusalem was conquered 70 times by different groups (Egypt, Babylon, Romans etc.) and the longest period of peace (450 years) was during the rule of the Ottoman(Turkish)Empire.
what i got wrong: Israel = the Jews
Israel is a country, Jews are a religion.
So Israelis are NOT necessarily Jews. They could be Christians or Moslem.
The fact Israel has been associated with Jews “only” is the fact it is just more dominant than the other religions. (because it has more/better US/EU weapons)
Also can be clearly seen: Religion is like a sect – like a gang – a group of people that want POWER TO RULE.
It is a “melting pot” of never ending rivalry similar to Africa and it’s tribe wars – it can only be halted with a neutral force PERMANENTLY on the ground (like the BlueHelmets in Africa)
Giving weapons / support to one group will simply get all of the other groups killed plus revenge backed by alliances.
Just imagine if Christians would be bullied out of Israel by the Jewish… how would the “western community” react to that? Send weapons to the Christians?
… i guess right now are the Jewish on the conquest.
It is a powder-keg with small and bigger explosions since hundreds of year – so “conflict” is the every day life in this area – except (as i said) during the Ottoman Empire – peace lasted for a few hundred years.
The UN was created after World War 2 to never repeat those mistakes.
Washington Post: “The U.N. Hates Israel”
Why does the UN hate Israel?
The UN are 193 member states – so basically “the whole world”
So to rephrase that article: “The Whole World Hates Israel”
Wow. Why? Or the other way around:
“Why does Israel hate the Whole World?”
Maybe the Jewish government is doing something wrong?
They are just fulfilling god’s will aren’t they?
And if God’s will is to drop nuclear bombs on Iran?
Only god and nobody is perfect.
