The Greening of…McDonald’s?

first_imgThough McDonald’s will never please vegetarians, most of whom consider the meat industry a serious affront to the environment, the restaurant chain has made some significant strides in reducing waste, saving energy and protecting forests by developing a zero deforestation plan for all the products it sources. Photo credit: harry_nl, courtesy FlickrEarthTalk®E – The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Has the McDonald’s restaurant chain made significant improvements in recent years with regard to the environment?                                      — Max Andria, Laval University, QuebecLong a poster child of environmental ills and health concerns, McDonald’s has worked steadily over the last two decades to clean up its act. The company will never win over vegetarians, who eschew meat for health, animal welfare and even world hunger concerns (we’d feed more people by using the land used to grow animal feed to grow food for people instead), but it has otherwise made some significant strides.The company first came under fire from greens in the 1980s for sourcing beef for its hamburgers from ranches on newly cleared, former rainforest tracts throughout the Amazon basin. In response, the company committed in 1989 to refuse beef sourced from recently deforested rainforest areas.Environmentalists were also on the company’s case about the waste it generates. So in 1990 McDonald’s partnered with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and began phasing out its polystyrene “clamshell” food containers and increasing the recycled content of the other food containers and boxes it uses. EDF and the fast food giant developed a waste reduction plan that eliminated 300 million pounds of packaging, recycled a million tons of corrugated boxes and reduced waste by 30 percent in the decade that followed.More recently, Greenpeace exposed the fact that expanded soy farming in Brazil—which feeds chickens used by McDonald’s and other large food companies—had become a threat to the Amazon rainforest. In response, McDonald’s partnered with Greenpeace to develop a zero deforestation plan for all its products.Likewise, McDonald’s beef purchasing executives have gotten in on things: In November 2010 the company was lead sponsor of the World Wildlife Fund’s first Global Conference on Sustainable Beef, an international meeting of stakeholders in the global beef system convened to discuss how to approach sustainable beef production in socially, environmentally and economically viable ways.Another green highlight for McDonald’s is its commitment to matching 30 percent of the electricity used at its company-owned stores with renewable energy credits from American wind power providers. And several Japanese McDonald’s are participating in an energy-saving campaign employing 13 different green technologies with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 20 percent overall.While McDonald’s is moving in the right direction, it is still widely criticized for the waste it generates and its contribution to health woes such as obesity. For its part, the company has limited control over the 80 percent of its stores that are run by independent franchisees, so change under the golden arches is slow.This past spring, McD’s released its Global Best of Green report highlighting advances made in energy efficiency, sustainable packaging, anti-littering and greening the workplace at hundreds of its restaurants around the world, underscoring it’s commitment to sustainability moving forward. The company hopes the new report will serve as a catalyst for franchisees to make similar improvements in their businesses.CONTACTS: EDF, www.edf.org; Greenpeace, www.greenpeace.org; McDonald’s Best Practices, bestpractices.mcdonalds.com.EarthTalk® is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E – The Environmental Magazine (www.emagazine.com).

Salvadoran Air Force Aids Civilians With Rescue Hoists Donated by SOUTHCOM

first_imgThese tools will all greatly contribute in the FAS’s efforts to assist the civilian population in emergencies such as landslides, earthquakes, fires or floods through the Humanitarian Rescue Unit (UHR). “We were ready with the hoists to pull victims out of the fire, but fortunately we didn’t need to use them because everyone was able to get out in time,” Col. León said. “This showed us how important is it to have the latest equipment when rendering aid in national emergencies.” Corporal Roberto Contreras, a FAS nurse and rescue worker who participated in the workshops, said the equipment and the knowledge he acquired will benefit the civilian population in El Salvador and throughout Central America. They’re each worth about $450,000 total, and are fitted to UH-1H helicopters; they can rescue up to three people at once, and are capable of carrying up to 600 pounds. The hoists are designed to perform equally well at sea, in the mountains, in the rainforest or in the city. The donation also included a set of accessories for rescue workers to ensure the equipment is working at its best, including two stretchers to transport victims with multiple traumas and a jungle penetrator – also known as a forest penetrator, a wedge-shaped stand that can lift a victim onto a helicopter – to reach places that are inaccessible by conventional means.

Aviation pilot Colonel Ángel María González, FAS Deputy Chief of Staff, said SOUTHCOM’s donation is one more example of the strong ties of unity and brotherhood between the two nations’ Armed Forces. The donation “stands as a testament for future generations to the excellent and solid bilateral working and friendly relations between the FAS and the U.S. Military.” The Salvadoran Air Force (FAS, for its Spanish acronym) is now better prepared to save disaster victims and transport them to a safe place thanks to two rescue hoists and support equipment for emergency workers that the United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) has donated. Friendship and support Training and collaboration “This dedication also reflects the confidence and respect that we have for [institutions such as] Civil Protection, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Public Security.” The equipment has already helped the FAS prepare in its efforts to help he civilian population. For example, when on January 3 the Las Cascadas shopping center in the department of La Libertad was struck by a large fire, the FAS deployed UH-1H helicopters equipped with the new hoists to rescue victims if necessary. Part of SOUTHCOM’s outreach efforts with Central and South American and Caribbean partner nations includes cooperative strategies such as the Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP), which works year round to respond to crises and contingencies in a three-step process of (1) building facilities, (2) training local authorities to properly manage disasters and (3) providing equipment to bolster each host nation’s own capacity to manage these disasters. HAP representatives work directly with partner nation government authorities to initially define their immediate needs and subsequently strengthen their ability to respond to humanitarian crises, natural and man-made disasters, and disease mitigation and prevention initiatives. “The hoists are very valuable to us, because we will be able to help the population in any sort of condition or situation: dark, rainy or cloudy,” said Colonel José León Gómez of the FAS Center for Military Aeronautical Training (CIMA). “We can even use them to move heavy objects obstructing the path on a road or that have fallen on houses or schools.” Colonel Robert Wagner, senior U.S. Defense official for El Salvador, demonstrated his respect for the Salvadoran civilian aid institutions when he delivered the hoists.

Myanmar, Afghanistan, Cameroon may join H5N1 list

first_imgMar 13, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – Three new countries are reporting avian influenza in birds, although confirmation as H5N1 is awaited, according to news service reports today.Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, has identified H5N1 in its own laboratories. A Reuters story indicates that UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) official Dr. Tang Zhengping says samples have been sent to labs in Australia and Thailand for confirmation.A flock of 780 chickens in the Aung Myae Thar Zan Township in the central region of Mandalay was sacrificed after the death of 112 birds. Samples were sent to government labs, where “they believe that they have identified H5N1,” according to Laurence Gleeson, an FAO official in Bangkok, as quoted by Reuters.Whether outside experts will be allowed into Mayanmar to evaluate the situation is uncertain, according to ABC News and other sources. The country is ruled by a military junta and has a reputation of being highly secretive. Because of its lack of infrastructure and unstable economy, some international health experts see the country as high risk in terms of the global fight against avian flu, according to Disease/Infection News and other sources.News from Cameroon is sketchy, but its government is reporting H5N1 in a duck from a farm near the border with Nigeria, which was the first African country with confirmed avian flu. If a Cameroon outbreak is verified, this will mark the fourth African country with the disease.In Afghanistan, tracheal swabs from wild and domestic birds in several locations were reported yesterday by the Central Veterinary Laboratory in Kabul as positive for H5 avian influenza, according to the FAO. Samples have been sent to a reference laboratory in Padua, Italy, for confirmation and subtyping.Elsewhere, H5N1 has been identified in a merganser, a type of wild duck, in Poland, according to Agence France-Presse. Earlier this month, the virus was confirmed in two swans in the country, and has recently been confirmed in a third.In Switzerland, two more cases of H5N1 have been confirmed, one in a duck and one in a coot. That country’s first case, in a goosander (wild duck), was reported earlier in March. AFP says that eight more suspected cases in birds are being tested in a British reference lab.last_img read more

Conflict of interest? Public questions government’s relationship with start-ups

first_imgThe government’s relationship with the country’s start-ups during the pandemic have raised eyebrows as the latter have been invited to get involved in national-scale programs, including the multitrillion rupiah preemployment card program, with lack of transparency, experts have said.Recently, an expert staff member to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, Andi Taufan Garuda Putra, was criticized for sending out a letter bearing the Cabinet’s Secretariat’s letterhead asking district heads across Indonesia to support a COVID-19 relief program led by his fintech start-up, Amartha.He issued the letter on April 11 without acknowledgement of the home minister, who supervises regional leaders, prompting the public to question the government’s impartiality. Andi has since revoked the letter and issued an apology, saying that his intention was to do something good as quickly as possible. There have been other cases like that of Andi’s. Adamas Belva Devara, another presidential expert staff member who is also education start-up Ruangguru CEO, also got caught up in controversy as his company was appointed by the government as among several start-ups to provide training in the preemployment card program.On Wednesday, he clarified the situation on his personal Twitter account following complaints from netizens, saying he had asked State Palace officials if there was a conflict of interest despite the fact that he was not involved in the program’s partner selection process. He said he was ready to step down from the position but the decision “should be discussed with the palace”.Adamas Belva Syah Devara (JP/Seto Wardhana)The program, which aims to reskill and upskill laid-off workers amid the pandemic, has been allocated Rp 20 trillion (US$1.2 billion) from the state budget fund to cover around 5.6 million participants. Each participant will receive Rp 3.55 million, of which as much as Rp 1 million is for training costs, Rp 2.4 million for living cost incentives for four months and Rp 150,000 for job survey fees.If the program’s goods and services procurement was carried out through an appointment, the decision violated Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 16 /2018 on government procurement, which states that procurement valued at Rp 200 million and above should be done through a tender, Misbah said.“Even during the pandemic, the procurement and bidding must be transparent, accountable and open for all eligible providers through the Electronic Goods and Services Procurement [LPSE] system,” he said.He went on to say that since the program has been rolled out, the next thing to do would be for the National Public Procurement Agency (LKPP), the Government Internal Supervisory Agency (APIP) and the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) to audit the procurement process, including the start-ups involved in the program.Read also: COVID-19: Jokowi staffer criticized for requesting local leaders to support his companyRuangguru CEO Iman Usman addressed the issue on his Twitter account @imanusman on Tuesday. He said procurement for the preemployment card was more like social aid programs, such as the Indonesia Smart Card (KIP), in which aid recipients could use the money they received to buy books, for instance, in partnering bookstores that “have fulfilled certain requirements”.“The preemployment card is similar, people can choose courses from the eight digital platforms that have qualified,” he said in one of the tweets without specifying the qualifications.   Other than Ruangguru’s Skill Academy, education start-ups MauBelajarApa, Pijar, Pintaria and e-commerce unicorn Tokopedia-backed Tokopedia Pintar, among other start-ups, are also engaged in the program. Meanwhile, e-wallet GoPay, OVO and state-owned companies-backed LinkAja will channel the funds to the participants’ digital wallet.Corporate affairs chief Nila Marita of Gojek, which will be involved in the preemployment card program through its e-wallet GoPay, told the Post that the start-up had been “officially appointed by the government” to be a payment partner in the program.Tokopedia, also stated in a press release on March 23 that it had been “appointed as an official digital platform by the Office of the Coordinating Economic Minister to launch the pre-employment card features.”Institute for Development of Economics and Finance (Indef) economist Bhima Yudhistira said the government could use free and existing facilities, such as university websites, to offer online lessons for the preemployment program, instead of spending money on start-up platforms.Read also: Govt partners with food, ride-hailing companies to guarantee food supplies during outbreak“Some start-ups are cozying up to the government to keep getting projects and sustain their business,” he told The Jakarta Post over the phone on Tuesday. Such practice, he added, would create a bad precedent for future start-ups as they might think that businesses needed the government as a patron to ensure sustainability, creating new generations of oligarchs.Throughout March and April, other government bodies have partnered with start-ups in other sectors as well.The Agriculture Ministry signed a memorandum of understanding with ride-hailing apps Gojek and Grab to sell staple foods from the ministry’s marketplace Toko Tani Indonesia Center as well as partnered with e-commerce platform Blibli.com to sell rice.Meanwhile, the Health Ministry signed an MOU last month with 11 telemedicine start-ups, including Halodoc and Good Doctor Technology Indonesia, which can be accessed through Gojek and Grab, respectively. Topics :center_img Andi Taufan Garuda Putra (JP/Seto Wardhana)“There is clearly a conflict of interest that could lead to abuse of authority,” said Indonesian Forum for Budget Transparency (Fitra) secretary-general Misbah Hasan in a text message to The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.“CEOs should step down prior to working in the government to be neutral. But I think the government was wrong in the way it recruited these CEOs because these appointments could hinder their creativity in improving their start-ups,” Misbah said.Read also: Underprivileged millennials: Being young and poor in Jakartalast_img read more

BLOG: Three Reasons Why Ride-Sharing Is Important for Pennsylvania

first_imgBLOG: Three Reasons Why Ride-Sharing Is Important for Pennsylvania The Blog Last Friday in Pittsburgh, Governor Tom Wolf took an Uber. This likely makes him the first sitting Pennsylvania governor to share a ride.Here’s why supporting ride-sharing is important for Pennsylvania:Innovation in transportation is important – just like many other industries. Ride-sharing creates competition for on-demand private transportation and provides new, reliable options for traditionally under-served communities.Ride-sharing companies are investing in Pennsylvania, especially Pittsburgh. Uber is already investing hundreds of millions of dollars in the commonwealth and is poised to invest more after choosing Pittsburgh to be its hub for testing self-driving vehicles and the site of its worldwide headquarters for advanced technology research.In addition to thousands of drivers sharing rides and earning income across the commonwealth, Uber has also already hired several hundred employees for its Advanced Technology Center in Pittsburgh.Governor Wolf has been a strong proponent of ride-share since becoming governor. He recently stood with Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto to ask the Public Utility Commission to reconsider its action to levy a record high fine on Uber.Governor Wolf will continue to work with the General Assembly to support ride-sharing and further innovation and economic growth as a result.
