triplepundit : FedEx Tackles Emissions: On the Ground and in the Air PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 15 April 2015 00:48

GINA-MARIE CHEESEMAN @GMCHEESEMAN When you’re reviewing a
sustainability report, you simply can’t focus on everything. You have to
pick a focus. As I read through FedEx’s seventh annual Global Citizenship
Report, I became very interested in its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
reductions. Climate change is a very real threat, so it’s great when a global
shipping company like FedEx does something to reduce its impact.

The No. 1 culprit: Aircraft emissions


Part of the company’s emissions reductions come through fuel efficiency, which it
makes a top priority. That makes sense given that the main source of its scope 1
emissions is jet fuel. Through its FedEx Fuel Sense programs, the company saved
over 100 million gallons of jet fuel in 2014, which avoided more than 976,000 metric
tons of carbon emissions.

UNIQLO, Japanese Fast Fashion Label, Accused of Labor Violations PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 14 April 2015 17:53

Chinese factories in Dongguan and Guangzhou that supply UNIQLO - a “fast
fashion” label owned by Fast Retailing Co. from Japan - have been accused of
endangering their workers’ lives, according to a new report from Students and
Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM), a Hong-Kong based labor
rights group.

SACOM worked with Labor Action China (LAC) and Human Rights Now (HRN),
a Japanese non-profit, to conduct research on two UNIQLO suppliers in 2014 -
the Luen Thai factory in Dongguan and Pacific Textiles factory in Guangzhou.
The report revealed that excessive working hours, low basic wages, unsafe
working environments and harsh punishments for workers were rampant in both
factories.The activists say that Fast Retailing needs to do a better job of supervising
working conditions in their factories.

“UNIQLO is an international brand, not just a Japanese brand. I don’t think
UNIQLO can tolerate defects in its clothing,” Alexandra Chan Hiu-ching, project
officer for SACOM, told the Associated Press. “I think UNIQLO should have high
standards for its factory conditions as well.”

triplepundit : Farmworker Awareness Week: Do You Know Who Picks Your Produce? PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 29 March 2015 23:28

A new report from the Los Angeles Times paints a rather
disturbing picture of what some laborers face — unsanitary
and unsafe conditions, poor housing, exposure to harmful
chemicals, debt bondage, and in some cases child labor.

These realities exist, and we must both acknowledge and work to change them.
At the same time, we also have to remember that there are many farms out
there doing good. For every disheartening reality we see or read about, there
are farms working hard to support their workers and directly combat the conditions
outlined by the LA Times. Thanks to certification programs like Fair Trade,
these farms and farmworkers are empowered to create safe, sustainable,
vibrant farming communities.
