Your weekly focus on sustainable solutions to make Corporates, Cycling & Ourselves better + all that overlaps! from @Timvdweide, ex-bikeshop owner, agent @andmoraal and consultant @ERMinsight.

Escape from Davos. With all the talk going on in Switzerland, let’s have a look at technologies advancing sustainability and zero-emission smart cars. Bricks from bacteria. Tech hype? Live life to the fullest in Costa Rica with friends. And feeling tired, ride your bike to work!
As always, please recommend ESG Weekly to your colleagues: Twitter (earn karma points!) | LinkedIn (no, even more karma points!)

Sustainability + business context
- 5 Hot Tech Trends and the Implications for Sustainability
What’s more:
- Google, GM and Lyft are rethinking the car. Three disruptive technologies are driving zero-emission smart cars.
Building bricks from bacteria? No heat or clay needed. Inspirational example.
- After all this tech, isn’t the tech revolution overhyped? Yes, thinks FT’s Martin Wolf.
- Quants are the new ethical investors? But what’s the impact on the real economy?
Personal growth
- I love Costa Rica, besides being a very sustainable country, it also hides the secret of the power of friends and family. The peninsula of Nicoya is beautiful if you haven’t been. 
- Great Linkedin Speaker sessions with the founder of Headspace app and former monk Andy Puddicombe on mindfulness. Many meditation skeptics have tried the Headspace app and as a result, have gotten more headspace.
- Don’t want to be tired all of the time? Ride your bike to work
- Looking forward to this documentary on Sven Nys. Famous and many times champion Belgian Cyclocrosser, Sven Nys. For now, just the trailer.
