The Estée Lauder Companies' sustainability leader on racial justice, 'sector-agnostic' solutions 27.7.2020 GreenBiz.com
The Estée Lauder Companies' sustainability leader on racial justice, 'sector-agnostic' solutions Heather Clancy Mon, 07/27/2020 - 01:30 In the four years since Nancy Mahon assumed responsibility for CSR and sustainability strategy at The Estée Lauder Companies — she's currently senior vice president of corporate citizenship and sustainability — her team has launched a series of new initiatives that are a "first" among her organization's sector. The list includes the company's first virtual power purchase agreement for 22 megawatts, a move made in pursuit of its 2020 net-zero carbon emission goal. More recently, it energized on-site two solar arrays — one at its Melville, New York, campus that will produce 1,800 megawatt-hours of power annually, and a smaller one at the Aveda brand's campus in Minnesota. The New York installation will provide 100 percent of the electricity required for its Joseph H. Lauder office facility, while the Minnesota one will contribute up to 50 percent — the remainder of its ...

The Canadian Green New Deal and migrant justice 4.7.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Zaid Noorsumar The Canadian Green New Deal movement is picking up steam, as prominent activists join forces with over 80 organizations to demand radical change. On June 11, Indigenous lawyer Pam Palmater and journalist Naomi Klein were two of the speakers at a Green New Deal town hall in Toronto. More town halls are planned in the next few weeks, with an open invitation to organize events to anyone committed to building the movement.  Modeled after the demand for a Green New Deal in the U.S. , the Canadian version aims to build a mass movement that can pressure government to take bold actions.  Instead of implementing temperate solutions such as the carbon tax, the Canadian Green New Deal calls for an economy that redistributes wealth and resources to benefit the vast majority of the population while drastically reducing emissions. That translates into transformative action on "systems of transit, energy, housing, agriculture, and public services" as well as addressing migrant justice. "The migrant ...

Canada is warming faster than we thought. What can we do about it? 4.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Bronwen Tucker While global temperatures have increased 0.8 C since 1948, Canada has seen an increase of 1.7 C -- more than double the global average. And in the Arctic, the warming is happening at a much faster rate of 2.3 C, the Changing Climate report says. A  new report  leaked one day early from Environment and Climate Change Canada shows that Canada is experiencing warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, with Northern Canada heating up at almost three times the global average. The changing climate report was prepared in a similar way to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports, as a synthesis of hundreds of peer-reviewed studies. It included details on a familiar catalogue of the impacts we can expect, not limited to increases in precipitation (particularly in winter), "extreme fire weather" and water supply shortages in summer, threatened freshwater systems, marine ecosystem collapse and a heightened risk of coastal flooding. As the  Toronto Star  noted, the report ...

Want a Green New Deal? Organize labour! 28.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Ted Franklin There are a number of ecosocialist responses to the Green New Deal, converging for the most part around the recognition that though it is not the Green New Deal most of us would prefer, it is the opportunity to move the paralysis of the climate change movement very far in the right -- left -- direction that our times so desperately need. This is a series of essays in six voices , from longtime activists who participate in the North American ecosocialist network System Change Not Climate Change . Each was challenged to make their point in 500 words or less. It was intended as a constructive contribution to the wonderful storm of discussion that the Green New Deal has opened up. Read the full series here . Labour's skepticism is the elephant in the room confronting organizers fighting for a Green New Deal ambitious enough to avoid catastrophic climate change. The Washington Post reports that the entire coal industry employs about the same number as the ski industry, yet some labour leaders ...

Youth climate conference builds momentum around Canadian Green New Deal 14.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Sophia Reuss Several hundred youth are gathering in Ottawa to kick off a recurring youth climate conference called PowerShift. This year's event, called " PowerShift: Young and Rising ," is a four-day convergence starting February 14 that draws young people from across the country for workshops and keynote lectures by prominent activists like Kanahus Manuel, Harsha Walia, Derek Nepinak, and Romeo Saganash. Organizers say the aim of the conference is to galvanize youth around the climate change and Indigenous rights movements. This year's PowerShift comes amid the youth movement that led to the recent launch of the Green New Deal in the U.S. and an upcoming federal election. "This is a moment to bring youth together and organize them in the leadup to the federal election, to demand much bolder climate action from the federal government and the kind of bold Green New Deal that we're seeing coming out of the U.S.," said Emma Jackson, an organizer with Climate Justice Edmonton and 350 Canada, in an interview ...
