The news from NAEM

And now the news

EPA Outlines Ideas for Cutting Red Tape - Article
To comply with President Obama’s January order on reducing red tape, the EPA has released a list of items for early action. For each item, the EPA ‘intends to take a specific step which could lead to modifying, streamlining, expanding, or repealing a regulation or related program during the 2011 calendar year.’

Water stewardship: Paralyzing complexity or competitive advantage? - Blog
The message from stakeholders and investors is clear: Companies are expected to govern and begin disclosing water-related business risks.  Historically, most companies have been able to simply acknowledge water as one of many important business issues. Much has changed in the past few years, with water positioned as a competitive issue and expectations trending towards quantification of water-related financial liability

G4 Begins with a Call for Sustainability Reporting Topics and Registration for first Public Comment Period - Call for Input
The next generation of Sustainability Reporting Guidelines – G4 – is now under development, and GRI is asking its network and the public to input into the first phase of development. Sustainability reporting topic submissions are due by June 30th, and you can also register to participate in the public comment period until July 31st.

Managing Risk for Unlikely but Catastrophic Events - Article
Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) programs may help businesses prepare for and respond to incidents that might not have a high likelihood of occurring but are capable of yielding catastrophic results. Even so, these low-probability disaster scenarios too often are overlooked by businesses and deserve more attention and planning.

UN Admits Time Has Expired For Post-Kyoto Climate Agreement - Article
The United Nations on Monday admitted what everyone knows: international climate talks will not reach agreement on a binding treaty for cutting carbon emissions before the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012. Under the Kyoto Protocol, 40 industrialized nations signed a binding agreement for a preliminary phase of relatively small carbon emissions cuts for the period 2008-2012.

Stanley Cup to Be Water-Neutral - Article
Even though each team will have its turn on ‘home ice’, the series will be water-neutral. The league has pledged to track the total water used at the two host venues, and replenish that amount through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation’s Water Restoration Certificates, restoring at least one million gallons of water to Oregon’s Deschutes River.
