During March 2014 in London, UK, a fresh vision for the UK water technology industry is being launched. Infrangilis is pleased to be part of the writing team for the report on behalf UK Water Research and Innovation Partnership and the Government Office of Science. The report, entitled ‘HTechO: Tapping the Potential’, is free to download from the 11th March.
This is the question posed in our latest article for CSRwire. The piece focuses on the UN’s call for a new compact with the private sector to contribute to the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
We are pleased to share the exciting news about the latest book from Infrangilis’ founder Philip Monaghan. ‘Lobbying for Good’ shows why and how the best companies – small as well as large ones – can positively contribute to politics for a green and inclusive economy. The book will be published by Do Sustainability in May 2014.
The Association of Public Service Excellence (APSE) has invited Infrangilis to examine how local water stewardship can build a prosperous economy. The study to be released in Spring 2014 is part of our on-going collaboration and will contribute to APSE’s applied research on the green urban economy.
At Co-operatives UK’s annual practitioner forum in November we helped launch the new report ‘Simply Performance’. Authored by Infrangilis, it is a guide to creating member value by aligning co-operative strategy, performance measurement and reporting. Simply Performance is free to download.
Credit rating agencies do not understand the co-operative business model and cause significant extra costs for the sector, according to senior co-op officials. Citing our earlier research study on the topic, Infrangilis contributed to the media debate in Co-operative News, arguing that the flaws of the ratings industry are of concern not just for member-owned enterprises but for the economy more widely. If you exclude environmental risks, you encourage pollution and unsustainable resource extraction.
We are pleased to be participating in a number of important sessions at the Ecocity World Summit in Nantes at the end of September which will help shape the vital role of cities in the delivery of the Post 2015 sustainable development goals. Infrangilis is presenting the results of new research for UNEP’s Global Initiative for Resource Efficient Cities, contributing to the International Resource Panel’s convening on city decoupling, and consulting the private sector on connected cities at a session of UN-Habitat’s World Urban Campaign. We hope to see you there!
