Consider sustainability before it’s too late.

In case you were too busy running your business and juggling different hats, we took it upon ourselves to round up the most pressing matters in world & business news nowadays:

  • The largest Global Climate Strike happened Last Friday, September 20, 2019, as hundreds of thousands of people (and hundreds of companies) walked out of school and work. Led by 16-year old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and Aussie B Corp company Future Super, they are protesting global leaders’ inaction on climate change, just in time for the UN Climate Action Summit that happened in Manhattan yesterday.
  • At the United Nations climate summit, dozens of presidents, prime ministers and corporate executives highlighted their efforts to reduce the use of fossil fuels and avoid the worst effects of global warming. After only hearing a few solid commitment from the leaders, the masses are calling for another round of Climate strike, inviting more people and businesses to not do business as usual this Friday, September 27.
  • Speaking of fossil fuels, sure you’ve heard about the bombing attack on Saudi Aramco? The US and Saudi Arabia are putting the blame on Iran for the attacks that has affected global oil prices, jacking it up by as much as 10%.
  • Thomas Cook, the world’s oldest travel company, has gone bust, leaving around 600,000 people stranded, and 21,000 employees out of jobs overnight. This collapse was caused by racking millions of dollars in debt, years of mismanagement, failure to keep up with the times and modern online-based competitors.


All of these news bites share a common thread — sustainable management of resources (may it be with the environment or with business) is crucial to building a better future.

Figuring out where to invest or reallocate your time, efforts, and funds, can spell the difference between success and failure. There’s a way to develop businesses and economies in the present without sacrificing the future.
