Sustainability + business context
5 Companies That Will Make the World Better in 2016
- Yes, more numbers and tech: Hilton invested in proprietary technology to improve natural resource management, and reduced energy use by 14.5 percent, carbon output by 20.9 percent, reduced waste by 27.6 percent and water use by 14.1 percent since 2009, resulting in an estimated $550 million of cumulative savings. Considering Hilton’s EBITDA was roughly USD 2 billion, thats not bad.
10 kg of coffee grind, the average daily waste of a coffee shop, equals 2 liters of biodiesel. Which is an interesting idea for what to do with the coffee waste we have at Meesterknecht. But what will we use the biodiesel for once we all drive electric?
- Hello, men of this world, first, it was shown that boards with women were more likely to have a sustainability strategy in place, now women in finance are also bringing ESG to the fore front. What’s your response? 
Personal growth
- “Practicing certain mental skills on the job may help sharpen cognitive abilities. There are benefits for managers, paramedics, programmers, teachers and others.” Yes, your job can make you smarter.
- In the Netherlands, it is popular with a small group of riders, but outside of NL riding dirt and gravel roads on road bikes is becoming more and more popular. Five tips to get you started. (and yes there are gravel paths in the Netherlands too!) 
PS. looking forward to this year’s images from Strade Bianche!
