I will from now on provide short posts about the new era of Sustainability and CSR challenges after the world-changing Brexit decision and a surge of authoritarianism in the US (dare I say this T-word again…No I will resist for now).
Why? Simple. If you stay informed you know what is going on around you and you can make an informed decision. Something that is clearly missing in the daily Trump universe (there I wrote it).
Here are some interesting articles to read to finish of your week. 4 blogs from corporations and 1 from Jeffrey Hollender:
Have a good weekend everyone!
I am a global citizen and I strongly believe in the power of the globalisation for us and future generations.
Sustainability is a part of this believe. Sustainability is the driving power for a fair and just globalisation. And we as part of the Sustainability movement have made great progress over the past decades to do our bit.
The past few weeks have shown that all we have worked so hard for is under threat. Serious threat. The 45th President of the United States and the Brexit vote are the two single biggest threats to our common global future in general and the Sustainability movement more specifically.
I am not not a politically interested person. Quite the opposite. I strongly believe in the power of the individual and his/her strength to create a better world. Politicians in my view should just be representatives of these individuals. But this no longer seems to be the case these days.
I will not use more words now to state the obvious (if you are a open-minded and social person):
If we as individuals are not starting to do more for our freedom and global future we will have others make the choices for us.
And look where we are heading towards now.
The future can be a sustainable, just and bright future but only if each individual is doing their bit.
You personally know very well what it is for you. I know what it is for me. So lets get going and oppose those forces that are ruining our global and sustainable future. There really is no other choice.
This is my first post here in a few months now. Somehow real life took over everything in October until now. But I will try to post as often as possible here again.
Some of topics I will write about will be:
- The Trump effect on Sustainability as I see it.
- Sustainability trends in 2017
More topics to follow.

The past two weeks where totally packed with private appointments. It was therefore impossible to find the time to blog in my regular capacity unfortunately.
Now everything is getting close to normal and I can start to catch up on the Sustainability / CSR news and events I missed.
Here are some interesting news and blog items I found this week so far:
More posts to follow this week if all the catching up goes according to plan. If there is anything you have to share in terms of Sustainability / CSR news please let me know in the comments section.
I am using a RSS reader to organise my Sustainability / CSR sources. Those sources include the following categories:
- Sustainability / CSR News
- Individual Sustainability / CSR blogs
- Corporate Sustainability / CSR blogs
- Sustainability related news
- EV and Cleantech
Over the next few weeks I will write individual posts on each of those RSS reader feeds to highlight the sources I find most useful at the moment. I will not list all the sources but highlight the ones I find most useful.
All feedback is welcome. And I would love to hear what Corporate Sustainability / CSR blogs you are following at the moment.
Today I will start with my Corporate Sustainability / CSR blogs list:
