Financial Services are behind the global average on climate change disclosure

Datamaran – the leading platform that analyzes ESG disclosure – releases a brief on the TCFD signatories’ disclosure of climate change risks

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 20, 2018 / — Financial Services are lagging behind all other industries when it comes to climate change disclosure according to a new data brief released by Datamaran. Datamaran is the global leader in Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for non-financial risk management.

Primarily dominated by financial services, there are over 200 of The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) signatories across all sectors, which account for $44 billion in average market capitalization. Coupled with the fact that financial services are one of the biggest sectors in terms of market capitalization, approximately $17 trillion, their potential impact on climate change can be far reaching.

In the data brief that will be released Monday the 20th of August 2018, Datamaran compares the TCFD financial services signatories to other (non-financial services) sector signatories and explores how they disclose on climate change related risks in their annual financial reports. The brief reveals a gap between the two. Twice as many non-financial services signatories report on climate change with a high emphasis compared to financial services. [Financial services make up 50% of the TCFD signatories.]

Dr Donato Calace, Director of Innovation at Datamaran commented: “It is not surprising that climate change is not seen as a material topic in the financial services sector itself, however they have the power to influence the market through impact investments, green bonds, and loans. The time is ripe for financial services to take the lead as there are signs that show the tide is changing, such as, the EU action plan or the TCFD recommendations.”

Further findings include that non-financial services are more proactive in climate change reporting. They started to put more emphasis on climate change in their reports a year before the TCFD recommendations were released, going from 31% in 2014 to 43% in 2015. The study shows that financial services signatories are observed to be more reactive. It was only the year after the TCFD recommendations were introduced that an increase was seen in high emphasis reporting on climate change topics. Interestingly, in 2018, financial services saw a 10% drop in high emphasis reporting on greenhouse gases but saw a 14% rise in climate change disclosure.

Three years after the TCFD recommendations were released, the gap between the sectors on high emphasis reporting has been reduced, moving from 31% in 2016 to 15% in 2018.

Further details of the research could be found in Datamaran’s data brief available here.

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys Focus on Reviewing Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cases Related to Prolonged Roundup Weedkiller Use

Logo for Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys focus on Roundup case reviews for those claiming diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma popular weedkiller after prolonged exposure.

I strongly encourage anyone who believes their long term exposure to Roundup contributed to an NHL diagnosis to seek out legal assistance to see if they may be entitled to compensation.”

— Glen Lerner, ESQ.

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2018 / — The law offices of Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys announced they will streamline their focus regarding Roundup case reviews for those claiming diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) after prolonged exposure to the popular weedkiller. This decision came after more and more Individuals and family members of deceased have come forward to claim Roundup weed killer is believed to have contributed to often severe side effects.

One such man, Dewayne Johnson, was exposed to Roundup during his tenure as a groundskeeper. He was later diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is believed to be linked to his high exposure levels to Roundup for a prolonged period of time.

Based on evidence and testimony presented during trial, a California jury agreed that Johnson’s now terminal cancer was the results of his exposure to Roundup. Product manufacturer Monsanto was ordered to pay him $289,000,000 in damages after finding they failed to warn about severe health hazard, in addition to acting with malice, oppression or fraud and should therefore be punished for its conduct (case no CGC-16-550128).

Glysophate – Dangerous or Harmless Like Monsanto Suggests?

Glysophate is an active ingredient most widely used in herbicides – including Roundup. Herbicides are commonly used by farmers, groundskeepers of public spaces and homeowners alike to control weeds.

Monsanto maintains that Roundup has safely been sold and used for 40 years when used as directed. Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge released a statement saying “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product.”

Despite Monsanto’s stand, occupational exposure studies of glyphosate have shown a link between NHL and glysophate.

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys strongly encourages anyone who believes their long term exposure to Roundup contributed to an NHL diagnosis to seek out legal assistance to see if they may be entitled to compensation. Glen Lerner’s Las Vegas and Chicago-based law firms offer free Roundup NHL case reviews.

The Catamaran is a multi-hulled watercraft that features state-of-the-art facilities such as, two parallel hulls. That Catamaran is a geometry-stabilized craft, and derives its stability from its extra wide beam, rather than a monohull sailboat which has a ballasted keel. Thus, it offers complete comfort while sailing and scuba diving.

The sea is wedged between Baja California and the mainland Mexico with a sheltered and narrow outline, which results to mostly calm waters, making it an ideal spot for the best scuba diving experience possible.
He concluded by saying, “Our luxury scuba diving tour onboard a luxury catamaran yacht is perfect for people who love the sea. the Sea of Cortez is an amazing place to visit. The warm waters are relatively calm, with high mountains in a distance rise from the bluish-green sea and upwards to the blue sky. It is the perfect place to spend a full day with friends or family. Once below the water, you are freed from gravity, and experience absolute freedom. Guests on our luxury scuba diving tours will get to spot up to 900 different fish species. Gently touch them, sit on the ocean’s floor, or play with the sand, and feel like a true National Geographic explorer of the deep sea. The boat ride to and from the dive site is also a sight to behold, not only because of the amazing natural beauty of the surroundings but because Grey whales and Humpback are often spotted en route, which makes the experience magical.In short, it’s a great body of water to explore, and we’d love it if you would join us for this unforgettable adventure.”

‘Surveillance’ Artist Hasan Elahi comes to Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park as August’s Resident Artist

“In considering surveillance we tend to think of it as a very 21st century concept, yet we’ve always been watched. We’ve had several thousands of years of being watched from above”

— Hasan Elahi, NPAF Hawai'i Volcanoes Resident Artist

VOLCANO, HAWAI'I, US, August 16, 2018 / — Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park and The National Parks Arts Foundation are proud to announce that Hasan Elahi, a world-renowned installation artist —whose artwork explores issues around technologies of surveillance, and sousveillance (the practice of using technology for documenting one’s own life) —is August’s Artist in Residence.

Elahi will provide a free presentation for visitors on Aug. 24, 2018 at 10 a.m., at the Kahuku Unit of the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Enter Kahuku on the mauka (uphill) side of Highway 11 near mile marker 70.5. This event is made possible with support from the National Park Service, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Friends of Hawai’i National Park. This event is a unique opportunity to hear from a globally celebrated artist and energetic public speaker, about his life and art practice, which are intertwined in unusual and evocative ways.

Hasan’s life changed in a fateful way, after Sept. 11, 2001. Returning from an exhibition in Amsterdam, he was pulled aside at a Detroit airport checkpoint and questioned for hours, and what would eventually turn out to be almost a year of FBI investigation. An erroneous tip called into law enforcement authorities in 2002 subjected Elahi to an intensive investigation by the FBI and after undergoing months of interrogations, he was finally cleared of suspicions. After this harrowing experience, Elahi conceived “Tracking Transience” and opened just about every aspect of his life to the public. Predating the NSA’s PRISM surveillance program by half a decade, the project questions the consequences of living under constant surveillance and continuously generates databases of imagery that tracks the artist and his points of transit in real-time. Although initially created for his FBI agent, the public can also monitor the artist’s communication records, banking transactions, and transportation logs along with various intelligence and government agencies who have been confirmed visiting his website.

This led Elahi to champion a philosophy termed radical transparency, which has a profound impact and reach. The internet, for example, is in effect a massive data harvesting operation, where human activity is minutely tracked and sold for economic advantage, all in the guise of ‘customer service. This ecosystem of information is based on the very human tendency to desire privacy, and in a way, to live in secret. But wonders Elahi, does it make sense to live this way in the global electronic village? “In considering surveillance we tend to think of it as a very 21st century concept, yet we’ve always been watched. We’ve had several thousands of years of being watched from above; G-d —all knowing— as the original surveillance camera. This might sound sarcastic, but there’s a very similar omniscience that a lot of these data companies have about us. I think we don’t consider many things as surveillance until it’s put in that context for us. Similarly, when you hyper aestheticize an image your brain no longer reads it as surveillance, but reads it as landscape and I think there’s something that also happens when you take that Google Street View image and you aestheticize it.,” says Elahi.

“I never associated my practice with a certain medium or particular discipline or technique and I’ve always looked at it as how can I find the most appropriate method for my idea and that’s how it came about.” And for this, his first project on the Island of Hawai’i, Elahi will be using satellite metrics and other technology to ‘recreate’ some of the famous early artwork done by 19th century landscape artists as an adjunct to the United States westward flow of Manifest Destiny, which particularly for the Hawaiian Islands and its people, became a contested and fraught imperialist and Colonial landscape.

Says Elahi about this project: “In the nineteenth century, enormous landscape paintings by such figures as Frederic Edwin Church and images by such photographers as William Henry Jackson became the visual expression of Manifest Destiny. Many of the paintings that I am proposing to recreate with new technologies of surveying and measuring were created at a time when landscape paintings were often commissioned by the government to take inventory of the natural resources of the country at a time as we were growing into a world power. This work will not only explore the then and now aspect of these locations, but will also question what the genre of landscape means today in a political context.”

Elahi, an interdisciplinary artist, was born in Rangpur, Bangladesh, but raised in New York City. Currently, he is an Associate Professor, in the Department of Art, University of Maryland, at College Park, in Maryland and has a studio in the D.C. area. In addition, Mr. Elahi has been invited by organizations as diverse as the Tate Modern in the UK, the American Association of Artificial Intelligence, the International Association of Privacy Professionals, National Geographic, TED, and World Economic Forum to discuss his work.

NPAF is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion of the National Parks of the U.S. through creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based in our natural and historic heritage. This project is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Friends of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, and other generous benefactors. All NPAF programs are made possible through the philanthropic support of donors of all sorts ranging from corporate sponsors, small business, and art patrons and citizen-lovers of the Parks. NPAF is always seeking new partners and donors for its wide-ranging artist-in-residence programs.
