By making these moves, firms will increase their resilience to volatile resource prices, electrical outages, and shifts in customer needs. They will improve business performance while advancing the common good. The big pivot represents a radical change in strategy, operations, and mind-set.
The year 2017 has been a long, strange trip. In the world of sustainability, we saw big leaps both backward and forward. Some weren’t especially surprising; for example, president Trump pulling out of the Paris climate accord. Others, like the response of businesses, states, and cities to this move — “we’ll lead if you’re not going to” — was nothing short of amazing.
Sometimes it takes a different perspective to grasp how the world is changing. Taking a birds-eye view (literally, from an airplane) over Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, and New York City reveals some of the ways both the population is growing and evolving and how clean energy is (and isn’t) spreading. For example, giant warehouses and distribution centers congregate around most airports in the world. They have big, flat, ugly roofs staring up at the sun all day.
@LeslieCook2@blackrock@andrewrsorkin I wouldn’t go quite that far. Each year the statement has gotten broader in its implicit (or explicit) condemnation of short-term capitalism. But as @andrewrsorkin points out, indexers can’t really move funds. Even with trillions behind them, there’s only so much they can do.
@JigarShahDC@blackrock@andrewrsorkin Absolutely. I've used Fink's letters as evidence of investors finally moving on the inextricable link between sustainability and biz value...and yet, some c-suite clients don't seem to feel much pressure to accelerate...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
