The reasons ESG investments could outperform Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Our 5 Top Shares for the New “Green Industrial Revolution” Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) investing is here to stay, I believe. But while it’s a reflection of investors’ eco and ethical concerns, such investments should also be profitable — or at least have profits potential. As more money goes to shares with strong ESG credentials, the more the share prices of these companies should rise. Its supply and demand.Two reasons ESG investments could outperformThere are two main reasons why I think ESG investments could do better than the market more generally.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Lots of pension money is still to come into the sector, which will further boost demand. Pension schemes hold vast amounts of money, yet many haven’t deployed cash into ESG investments. That’s because the primary duty of a pension trustee is to maximise returns.Once the evidence builds that ESG investments can perform well and aren’t just about feeling good, then I think there will be a flood of money. That will push up prices.I think it’s also possible to argue that a concentration on the environment, social issues and governance is a sign of good management.Also, the argument has been made (for example by Fidelity’s Jeremy Podger), that ESG investments could do well financially: “Adopting ESG principles in investment is compatible with — and will likely enhance — the investors’ traditional risk and return objectives.”The big challenge when it comes to ESG investments is avoiding greenwashing. This is where a company, or indeed a trust or fund, gives the appearance of becoming environmentally-friendly, but in fact there’s not much substance behind the façade. Research for Quilter found 44% of investors are concerned that ESG investments are not what they claim to be.ESG investingI’ve already outlined the case for SSE and Prudential in previous articles. For the former, I think its involvement in renewables gives it strong ESG credentials. For the latter, the case is based on many professional ESG investors holding the shares and the fact it is a well run company.I also think AstraZeneca has strong ESG credentials because it’s supplying Covid vaccine to countries at no profit while the pandemic lasts, it has a strong focus on providing oncology treatments and seems to be well governed and well run too.When it comes to ESG investments, I think there are other contenders besides these three. And I’m not only thinking of ‘obvious’ ESG picks. One example, I think, is FTSE 100-listed Coca Cola HBC (LSE: CCH). This low-profile, Switzerland-based, company is a bottler of Coca-Cola products (the brand-owning Coca-Cola Company itself is listed in the US and backed by Warren Buffett).Coming back to the UK-listed company though, Refinitiv data scored it highly on ESG. The bottler is a big part of the US firm’s ‘World Without Waste’ initiative. It aims to make 100% of the firm’s packaging recyclable by 2025.The concept of the circular economy – where items are recycled and reused through their shelf life – is an important part of reaching net-zero and reducing plastics in the oceans.On top of that, Coca-Cola could just bring manufacturing in house. But I think that’s unlikely, as it would add a lot of fixed costs. Any reputational damage to Coca-Cola itself could also hit volumes and therefore profits at Coca Cola HBC. last_img read more

Detroit teachers expose school crisis

first_imgA series of rolling sickouts for several months by teachers across the Detroit Public Schools system culminated on Monday, Jan. 11, with the closure of virtually every school. The sickouts continued during the rest of the school week, while hundreds of teachers and supporters marched on DPS headquarters in Detroit and at the state Capitol building in Lansing, Mich.The teachers’ actions brought into sharp focus the crisis facing teachers, staff and students in public schools throughout the city and the deplorable conditions these workers and youth face.More than a half-billion dollars in debt, DPS has been run for years by a state-appointed emergency manager who has usurped the elected school board in all decision making. Teachers, who have taken pay and benefit cuts, are severely understaffed. They often have 50 or more students in a class, with not enough textbooks and amid dreadful conditions.Teachers and students in crowded classrooms huddle in jackets because of inadequate heat in dilapidated buildings with crumbling infrastructure, often containing black mold and other toxins. Fungi growing on the walls and rodent infestations are not uncommon. Bathrooms, with many of their fixtures missing or broken, have no toilet paper. Supplies are short or nonexistent. Even Mayor Mike Duggan saw a dead mouse and “deeply disturbing” conditions when he made a media show out of touring some of the schools on Jan. 12, the day after 64 schools were closed due to teacher sickouts.Detroit schools lost 84,000 students, or two-thirds of DPS enrollment, between 2005 and 2012. This was largely due to lack of jobs and the mortgage foreclosure crisis, which struck this majority African-American city with fraudulent subprime home loans, coupled with the proliferation of private charter schools and the opening up of suburban school districts to rob Detroit of many of its highest-achieving students.Gov. Rick Snyder, a capitalist and reactionary, appointed an emergency manager who took the city of Detroit into bankruptcy. The emergency manager, appointed under a law that guarantees the payment of debt service to the banks, placed the Detroit Public Schools into ­unpayable bonds.No. 1 priority: Pay the banksToday, the number one item in the DPS budget is loan repayment and debt service to the banks and financial institutions. In February, the debt service is set to skyrocket (“balloon”), with the total debt up 74 percent from last year and with debt payments representing a whopping 97 percent of DPS’s payroll costs. Debt payments of 10 percent of payroll costs are considered alarming.Snyder is now under fire for sitting on information and failing to take action while the children and residents of Flint, Mich. — Flint’s EM when that crisis started is the current DPS emergency manager! — have been poisoned by lead and other toxic metals in the city’s water system.Snyder’s $715 million solution to the DPS crisis? Make up a new system that is debt-free, alongside the current one, to manage the schools where debt is paid down. However, the caveat is that the schools will continue to be run by a board dominated by Snyder appointees. Detroit schools will not return to control by an elected board until 2017, and even then the elected board will be barred from choosing a superintendent.In addition, the new school board will have no oversight over the many charter schools which have proliferated in Detroit or over the Education Achievement Authority, a special district that manages “underperforming schools.” The EAA has been riddled by corruption and failed to provide students even a minimum education.Mass actions by teachers, after years of complaints that went nowhere, have finally brought this crisis to the light of day. Teachers, parents, students and community members, including the elected Detroit School Board in exile, continue to fight the state for control of the Detroit schools and an end to the financial crisis and austerity that have brought suffering to so many.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Joint-letter to release Bahraini photographer Ahmed Humeidan

first_img Tenth anniversary of Bahraini blogger’s arrest August 30, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Joint-letter to release Bahraini photographer Ahmed Humeidan News Follow the news on Bahrain Your Majesty,We, the undersigned Bahraini and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), would like to call your attention to the case of Ahmed Humaidan—an award-winning Bahraini photojournalist sentenced to 10 years in prison in connection with his work documenting the ongoing unrest in Bahrain. These types of charges and prison sentences are active forms of intimidation and repression against journalists and the press, and directly conflict with Bahrain’s international commitments to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and to Bahrain’s accepted recommendations of the country’s 2012 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) (115.147, 115.155, and 115.158). We call on your government to immediately and unconditionally release and dismiss all charges against Ahmed Humaidan and to fulfill Bahrain’s commitments to uphold international standards of press freedom.In December 2012, Bahraini courts tried Ahmed Humaidan along with over 30 individuals on charges relating to an attack on a Sitra police station which took place earlier that year. Following repeated home raids against his family, plain-clothes security agents abducted Humaidan from a shopping mall on the night of 29 December 2012 and took him to the Central Investigation Department (CID), where he was interrogated without the presence of a lawyer. Ahmed has maintained that he was not involved in any violence and that he wasn’t presence during the police station attack and if he does that would be only in his capacity as a photojournalist documenting the ongoing unrest. Humaidan is an internationally recognized, award-winning photographer who has captured a number of iconic images from Bahrain since 2011.The 10-year prison sentence handed down against Humaidan, as well as similar sentences against other Bahraini media professionals, is a form of intimidation, repression and abuse of the Bahraini media community, and serves to undermine press freedom in Bahrain. Additionally, the type of abuse Humaidan and his family endured through numerous home raids before his arrest and the manner of Humaidan’s arrest and his forced disappearance for 19 hours before being allowed to contact his family likewise serve as a comprehensive form of intimidation and abuse of journalists.As a signatory to the ICCPR, Bahrain has committed to uphold international standards of free expression, including the ability of media professionals to document and publish their work. This obligation is rooted in Article 19.2 of the Covenant, which states that, “Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice.” Similarly, a number of the 158 recommendations that the Government of Bahrain accepted as part of Bahrain’s 2012 Second Cycle UPR referenced ending intimidation, repression and censorship against journalists and the press in Bahrain. Recognizing these obligations and commitments made by Bahrain, we therefore call on your government to immediately and unconditionally release Ahmed Humaidan and to dismiss all charges against him. We likewise call on the Government of Bahrain to recommit to upholding press freedom and freedom of expression in Bahrain, and to take immediate steps to end all intimidation, arrest, abuse, prosecution and detention of journalists and media professions on charges relating to their work. Sincerely, German spyware company FinFisher searched by public prosecutors Reporters Without Borders signed a joint letter, with 10 organizations, addressed to the King of Bahrain calling for the release of Bahraini photographer Ahmed Humeidan, held for past 19 months. to go further RSF_en Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information HM Hamad bin Isa al-KhalifaKing of BahrainRifaa PalaceManama, Bahrain News BahrainMiddle East – North Africa June 15, 2020 Find out more Organisation News BahrainMiddle East – North Africa Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in BahrainREPORTERS WITHOUT BORDERSBahrain 19Bahrain Institute for Rights and DemocracyCommittee to Protect Journalists – Sherif Mansour – MENA Program CoordinatorCanadian Journalists for free expression Bahrain Center for Human RightsBahrain Salam for Human RightsLawyer’s Rights Watch CanadaBahrain Youth Society for Human RightsBahrain Press Association October 14, 2020 Find out more March 17, 2021 Find out more News Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves liveslast_img read more
