Dear youth population out there,

You are priceless and a treasure to every country; the value of your contribution cannot be overstated.
Let's celebrate today the International Youth Day!

Get your entire potential, talent, and true color of yourself into the good of society. This year's International Youth Day is under the theme of International Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages" to amplify the message of the need for action among all generations to accomplish the SDGs and the importance of leaving no one behind.

The topic for this year also intends to increase awareness of several obstacles to intergenerational solidarity, including ageism, which negatively impacts both young and elderly people and society as a whole.

Let's learn from the intergenerational and make this world a better place to live together! 🙌

It's now SDG quiz-o'clock! Let's all learn more about SDGs 🙌🏻

This week we are celebrating International Youth Day with a theme of "International Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages" to amplify the message of the need for action among all generations to accomplish the SDGs and the importance of leaving no one behind 🤝

SDGs itself discuss many goals, targets and indicators related to youth population, from SDG 4 - Quality Education, SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth, and even in SDG 13 - Climate Action. One of the particular targets and indicators in SDG 8 also measures the proportion of youth (aged 15-24 years) who are not in education, employment or training (NEET).

#NEET issues have become very important in recent years as this indicator might form a way of grouping all vulnerable young people under a single label and one statistic. By looking thoroughly into NEET population in every country, governments can design various policy interventions according to the circumstances of their country to develop quality, effective, labour market-relevant and balanced #education and #training systems. 

Now for the quiz, can you guess which of these countries have the highest proportion of youth who are not in education, employment or training in 2021? (Clue: the country is the second highest among 63 countries who filed the report to World Bank in 2021)"

"I have no more worries, no more stress, and no more fear. Here, I am a very happy person. Here, there is no threat against my life, and I am looking forward to starting my Ph.D. very soon". YADASA, a former #refugee from the Ethiopian Oromo community who was resettled to Australia.

Unlike other organizations which focus on non-displaced populations by helping the nationals of a country with education, health, and poverty reduction, Refugepoint focuses on finding lasting solutions for refugees. They believe that it is beneficial for everyone that refugees to be given a #chance to use their #talents and #skills to contribute to their house countries and to the global economy 🌍🏫

Refugepoint has helped 104,767 refugees access #resetlement and other pathways to safety for the past 17 years of operations. 10.000 refugees are served annually by the urban Refugee Protection Program in #Kenya, and 3,839 refugee clients have graduated from RefugePoint assistance distributed in 250 locations across 52 countries 📌

A round of applause to the SDG Heroes of the week, the leaders of RefugePoint
Sasha Chanoff - Chief Operating Officer and Founder
Sarah Hidey, MBA - Chief Development Officer

As we are now entering August, the first SDG quiz for this month will be related to SDG index 💡

SDG Index published the index calculation of each country's last year data based on 120 sub-topics covered in 17 SDGs. Stunting is a sub-topic of SDG 2 - Zero Hunger. Sad to say, the average prevalence of stunting in children under the age of five in 193 countries is around 16 percent, which means that 1-2 children out of every ten experience stunting. Stunting has a wide range of negative consequences for children, including poor cognition and educational performance, low adult wages, lost productivity, and, when combined with excessive weight gain later in childhood, an increased risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases in adulthood.

Can you guess which country holds the highest percentage of prevalence of stunting in children under 5 years of age? (clue: the percentage even exceeds 50%, which means 1 of 2 children has stunting in the country)

Last week, we launched a poll about the most important initiative to support LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace.
The poll was voted by 20 people and impressively 40% voted for LGBTQ+ inclusion training.

Thank you very much for your valuable time to vote 🙌

While there is no right or wrong in the result of the poll, LGBTQ+ inclusion training is an important aspect a company should do to support LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace. The training should follow the United Nations LGBTI Standard of Conduct for Business by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights which includes five (5) pillars of recommendations, namely:
1. Respect Human Rights of LGBTI workers, customers, and community members
2. Eliminate Discrimination against LGBTI employees in the workplace
3. Support LGBTI Staff at work
4. Not Discriminate against LGBTI customers, suppliers, and distributors - and insist that business partners do the same
5. Stand Up For Human Rights of LGBTI people in the communities where they do business.

ExecuPride provides us with the statistic of the number of companies indexed S&P500 to adopt the UN LGBTI Standard of Conduct for Business. Out of the 500 companies, only 21.1% adopting the UN LGBTI standard of conduct for business ⚠️

What is your prediction for this percentage in 2050?

Special shoutout to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights experts:

🌟Catherine de Preux De Baets, Cristhian Molina Delgado, Daniela Chávez Mendoza and Sicelo Shange 🌟

The average percentage of women executives in Asia's energy industry lags below that of men executives. According to ExecuShe's weekly updated data, Women Executives only make up 9% of the executive workforce, while men dominate the chart. Although the ideal portion of women at the executive level is arguable, having a diverse individual at the executive level has a lot of advantages. Additionally, it demonstrates that women are given equal opportunities to lead.

These companies have opened their doors to allow women to sit on the executive board and become the 9% of the population. A huge round of applause to Thaioil Group ONGC Foundation PTT Group and PT. BUMI Resources, Tbk. as the TOP 4 companies which has the most women at the executive level. And Congratulations to Wanida Boonpiraks Alka Mittal Peangpanor Boonklum and R.A Sri Dharmayanti for the excellent work to contribute to making difference in the company.

Did you know that drones may help to do the forest restoration?

Fire seasons are growing longer, and destruction is becoming more serious as flames burn hotter and spread over more arid terrain. Around 32,247 wildfires have burnt over 3.3 million acres in the United States since the beginning of 2022⚠️

More deforestation and wildfires will add to the amount of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and fine particulate matter in the atmosphere. Aside from increasing the quantity of Greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, the accompanying air pollution can cause a variety of health concerns, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases!

Fortunately, armed with $36 million in new funding and technology capability, DroneSeed provided alternative to the backbreaking work of large-scale tree scaling from root to crown in a modern and vertically integrated way, grafting carbon futures and AI to centure-old machinery and logistics.

Briefly stated, DroneSeed substitutes human tree planters, who perform an important part and do it well, but are becoming increasingly scarce owing to the difficulty and poor pay of the task, and the scale of damage caused by fires has long since passed beyond the capabilities of manual labor. Instead of people, the business uses automated drones equipped with specially developed seed packets and dispensers; they fly low over the terrain, selecting the optimal locations for seed packets — not too rocky, a shallow slope, and many other criteria — and firing them off. Drones may drop dozens of seed packages or, with a more aggressive loadout, spray invasive plants that invariably emerge in the aftermath of fires before trees can take root.

This huge sustainability initiative is supported by the core team of DroneSeeds: Grant Canary - CEO, Ben Reilly - CTO and Shane Manciagli - Head of Finance


We wish the best of luck to DroneSeed in spreading the market and utilizing their recent technology to make reforestation easier in every place🍀

The UN’s sexual and reproductive health agency, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), announced on Monday the winners of it’s 2022 UN Population Award, with the individual prize going to a young trailblazing parliamentarian from Namibia, Emma Theofelus

Emma Theofelus was born in 1996 and is one of the Africa's youngest cabinet ministers and has used her youth-friendly perspective and experience as an advocate for sexual and reproductive health. She works as information deputy minister.

Moreover, she was a member of AfriYAN, a regional youth-led organisation, where she led inventive efforts to fight teen pregnancy and protect young people’s sexual and reproductive health.

In her interview, she stated: “My view is that accessibility of these sanitary pads will improve – whether personally acquired by women and girls or done so by third parties to assist women and girls. That’s the progress I would rather see and appreciate, and I am under the impression that women and girls from all socio-economic backgrounds feel the same”

Congratulations to Emma Theofelus, AfriYAN Africa, AfriYAN Rwanda for your supports in accomodating sexual and reproductive health issue in African countries! This action contributes to the achievement of:
SDG 3.7 By 2030, ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, including for family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programmes

SDG 5.6 Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents of their review conferences

Last week, SDGlabs.ai challenged you with one question which is related to one of the major pension fund in UK. Are you ready to know what the correct answer is? 🧠

Universities Superannuation Scheme (Ltd) (USS) is a proud signatory to the Montréal Pledge. As part of their commitment to the Pledge, they have calculated the carbon intensity of the USS public equity portfolio and compared it against the MSCI World Index. In addition to being able to estimate a total footprint for public equities against the benchmark, the footprint also enables them to identify and analyse the most carbon intensive companies in each equity portfolio, helping to inform their engagement and voting activity and allowing carbon risk to be integrated into their investment analysis.

USS reported their carbon intensity of public equities porfolios is 41% lower compared to MSCI World as of April 2018 🙌🏻!

Kudos to our quiz winners... 🏆
Fabian Muhammad Giffari Putra R. Christopher Larsson

In celebrating their performance, we truly appreciate the sustainability and ESG team of USS, represented by: David Russell - Head of Responsible Investment, Philipp Kloucek - Responsible Investment Analyst and K. Bruce Jackson - Responsible Investment Senior Analyst 👏🏻

"We got used to eating very little because we were gripped by fear" - Miss Shablevskaya, a post office clerk, one of the Ukrainian refugees

"They have been in the basement since Feb 24, they have not been out at all. They are running out of food and water" - Miss Bondarieva, one of the Ukrainian refugees

"It's very crowded and there isn't enough food. People get ill because it's very cold and everyone is lying next to each other" - Anastasiya Ponomareva, 39 years old teacher who fled the city at the start of the war

Day by day, the Russian invasion continues unabated. Russian forces were not only at battle with Ukrainian military, but they also endangered the lives of Ukrainian citizens. Because they lost their residence and food on their way to flee the city, basic life necessities have taken precedence in this situation.

In this moment, we would like to take a moment to applause the food aid provided by World Central Kitchen (WCK) who has built the largest food relief operation in Ukraine, reaching more than 230 cities and town. Their journey started after arriving on the Poland-Ukraine border to provide hot meals to refugee families just 24 hours after the invasion began, they quickly scaled up operations. WCK teams began operating 24/7 at all border crossings in neighboring countries. They also set up a huge warehouse in Warsaw to send trucks which transport millions of pounds of food into Ukraine.

In the western city of Lviv, they set up multiple warehouses and established a cargo railway hub, where they fill train wagons with food everyday and dispatch them to cities across the countries. They also created a meal voucher program in Lviv, where temporary homes have been built for the refugee families. Using a voucher, each person can walk to a nearby cafetaria to receive a free meal at any time.

In addition, WCK provided the grocery kits packing containing 30 pounds of products for families who are struggling with access to cooking ingredients. In total, across Ukraine, WCK teams have distributed more than 11 million pounds of food!

This amazing food aid program wouldn't be there without the support of these people at World Central Kitchen 👏👏: Rob Wilder - Chairman/Co-Founder, Alexandra S. Garcia - Chief Program Officer, Elliot F. Kaye - SVP, Policy

We wish the best to the whole team of WCK starting from their operation lead, thousand of kitchen personnel, hundreds of logistic staffs and volunteers to perform their job and together, we can end this terrible war!

Do you ever wonder how satellite space images can help to determine creditworthiness of farmers? 💡

ICICI Bank and their amazing financial technology team just did that! In 2020, ICICI started to use satellite data to assess several parameters related to land, irrigation and crop patterns. They combine demographic and financial parameters to make quick lending decisions for farmers within a few days, a huge improvement over the industry average of up to 15 days! So far, they have used satellite imagery in 500 villages spread across Maharashtra, Madya Pradesh and Gujarat. They also plan to extend the initiative to over 63000 more villages 🧑‍🌾👩‍🌾🧺

For SDG folks, this initiative will support the achievement of:
SDG 8.10: Strengthen the capacity of domestic financial institutions to encourage and expand access to banking, insurance and financial services for all

SDG 9.3: Increase the access of small-scale industrial and other enterprises, in particular in developing countries, to financial services, including affordable credit, and their integration into value chains and markets

And since satellite imagery hinders them to deploy officials to travel hundreds of miles across the hinterland to assess irrigation systems, crop quality, and land location for forecasting farm revenue manually, it also contributes to Scope 3 Greenhouse Gas Emissions as the part of their travel emissions (SDG 13)!

A round of applause to the team...
Shubham Bhatnagar - Senior Manager at ICICI Lombard, Rajat Kulshrestha - Valuations, Transactions & Equity Research and Prashant Sharma - Chief Manager


We wish the best of luck to ICICI in expanding their amazing initiatives to thousand of villages in India and encourage more banking companies to get their own sustainability initiatives! 🌱

On June 1st, we celebrate World Reef Awareness Day, which serves as a reminder for individuals, corporations, and other organizations to respect the fragile ecosystem of the coral reefs in our oceans 🌊

Coles Group, one of Australia's largest retail companies, has announced plans to invest $10 million in a 10-year blue carbon project at the Great Barrier Reef in collaboration with the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. Blue carbon will capture and store carbon in oceanic or coastal ecosystems including mangroves, tidal marshes, and seagrasses. The funds will be used to reinstate a significant coastal wetland in the Great Barrier Reef catchment, which would restore coastal ecosystems while also serves as effective carbon sinks.

The projects are:

- Working with farmers to restore a significant coastal wetland in the Great Barrier Reef catchment, with the objective of strengthening coastal ecosystems while also serving as highly effective carbon sinks. 
- Creating the first large-scale seagrass nursery in partnership with leading seagrass researchers and Traditional Owners of the Reef, as well as a demonstration site to unlock the research required to support seagrass restoration at scale.

According to a report published by The Education Trust,

There is a 17% gap in degree attainment between Black adults and White adults and
a 24.5% gap between Latino adults and White adults ❗

In other words, compared to 47% of white adults, only 24% of Native American, Native Alaskan, and Native Hawaiian adults have earned a college degree at the associate's degree level or higher⚠️

That is why Native Forward Scholars Fund steps forward to accomodate more than 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students since its founding over 50 years ago. The fund was originally created to support Native Americans pursuing graduate education, and about 60 percent of its scholarships goes to graduate students. The organization is currently in the process of expanding its support services and reach in hopes of lifting graduate degree attainment among Native Americans 🎓

Their support in helping Native American students are contributing to SDG 4 Quality Education, especially SDG indicator 4.b which aims to substantially expand the number of scholarships available to developing countries, particularly least developed countries, small island developing States and African countries, for enrolment in higher education, including vocational training and information and communications technology, technical, engineering and scientific programmes, in developed countries and other developing countries by 2020

All credits go to the whole team of Native Forward👏👏, represented by: Angelique Albert, MBA - CEO, Jill Geltmaker - COO, Christa Moya - Director of Scholarship Operations

Thank you SDG heroes of your contributions 🤍 Hopefully as day goes by, the education gap between racial groups are smaller and together we can achieve universal access of education for everyone!

Happy weekend everyone! Time to get yourself learned more all about SDGs with our weekly quiz 🧠

Over the last ten years, the demand for cryptocurrencies has soared to the point that the market value for total cryptocurrency has surpassed three trillion dollars and the price of the largest global cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, has nearly doubled in a year. The surge in price and the creation of more cryptocurrencies has resulted in frantic demand, prompting millions of individuals all over the world to try their luck in the crypto pie, even if they have no prior understanding of it.

The cryptocurrency market is well-known for its risk and volatile trend, yet fewer people debate its environmental impact, which contributes to a huge carbon footprint. To give you an idea, Bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency today, used 2100 kilowatt hours (kWh) for each of their transaction, which is about equivalent to what an ordinary US home consumes in 75 days! This enormous market can create extravagant greenhouse gas emissions because their majority energy supply is still derived from non-renewable energy sources. Bitcoin's yearly carbon footprint is similar to the discharge of 97.2 megatonnes of CO2, which is nearly the annual emissions of Argentina as a whole.

The activity of crypto mining, which is the process of producing or 'winning' new bitcoins by solving increasingly complex mathematical problems, contributes significantly to this high carbon footprint number. This technique is also known as proof-of-work (PoW), and it begins with standard computers (CPUs) solving these riddles, but as competition increases, they must employ specialized computers - ASIC systems.

However, not all bitcoin miners have this huge environmental impact. This crypto blockchain use proof of stake (PoS) instead of PoW where it helps to save a staggering amount of energy where they claim their cryptocurrency network only consumes 6GWh of power or just about 0.01% of Bitcoin's. Moreover, Pos' hardware investment is much lower where their full PoS blockchain can be completely secured using 1/10 or even less of electric power a PoW equivalent.

Can you guess which one is the correct crypto blockcahin according to our clues? 🔍

Happy weekend everyone! It's time for the new weekly SDG quiz 🌱

In 2021, Access to Nutrition Initiative released the Global Index 2021 report where they assessed how the world’s largest global food and beverage (F&B) manufacturers contribute to addressing malnutrition in all its forms: overweight and obesity, undernutrition, and micronutrient deficiency. One of their assessment category is Accessibility in delivering affordable, accessible products. This is in line with what SDG 2.1 aims to achieve, which is by 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round

This major F&B company was placed top in the category evaluation with a score of 7.7 out of 10 for improving its commitments, plans, and practices by effectively implementing a policy on affordability and accessibility known as 'Broadening Access to Nutrition.' Its specific, quantifiable goals for this program stand out. One of its goals is to expand the percentage of affordable nutrition products to at least 15% of sales volume in its lower-income markets (Nigeria, Pakistan, Ivory Coast, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines) by 2025. Furthermore, it seeks to improve the percentage of affordable nutrition products in these markets that meet its own nutrition requirements, Affordable Nutritional Standards, to at least 50% by 2025 🍅🍊


Can you guess of these following F&B manufacturers, which company is it?

Cardano Foundation uses proof of stake (PoS) instead of proof of work (PoW) where it helps to save a staggering amount of energy where they claim their cryptocurrency network only consumes 6GWh of power or just about 0.01% of Bitcoin's. Moreover, PoS' hardware investment is much lower where their full PoS blockchain can be completely secured using 1/10 or even less of electric power a PoW equivalent.

Cardano, in particular, employs Ouroboros as the first provably secure PoS protocol and the first blockchain technology based on peer-reviewed research. To secure the security and sustainability of the blockchains that rely on it, Ouroboros combines innovative technology and mathematically-verified procedures, which in turn combine behavioral psychology and economic philosophy. As the result, Cardano claimed to be the first protocol with established security assurances capable of facilitating the proliferation of global, permissionless networks with minimum energy needs.

Congratulations to... 🥳🎊
Rowena Babu Evelyn Thody Matthew McQuade Emile Wirsiy Marco Fuscaldo Christopher Larsson

We would like to give a special shout out to the team of Cardano: Alexandre Maaza - Outreach Development Officer, Frederik Gregaard - Chief Executive Officer and Sandro Knöpfel - Head of Financial & Regulated Institutions

Hopefully this sustainabiity initiative will be a good practice to the other crypto blockcahins to immediately replace their system to become more energy efficient 💡

Hello folks 👋 Time to get yourself learned more about SDGs with our weekly quiz ✅

In this week, we will collaborate with our product ExecuNicity which utilizes the ExecuShe data asset to monitor ethnic / racial diversity among top executives, whereby three data scouts from different non-white ethnic / racial background independently code the executives with respect to their perception of the executives’ ethnic / racial diversity  🧑‍💼🧑🏽‍💼🧑🏾‍💼🧑🏿‍💼

bp PLC, Chevron Corp, ConocoPhillips, Duke Energy Corporation, ExxonMobil and Shell PLC are 6 of the top 15 oil and gas companies sorted by their market cap.

Aside from their large market cap from time to time, let's see how their diversity in the workplace looks like 🕵🏿🕵️‍♀️

Out of the 70 executives from the six companies, can you guess which ethnicity group dominates the team? 🤔

Clue: According to our calculations, the average percentage is 70%!

Hi Folks! Are you ready for this week's quiz?

This week, we are celebrating the #PrideMonth, together with ExecuPride, which monitors the LGBTQ preferences and supports organizational openness to LGBTQ! 🌈

It is estimated that more than 1.8 million LGBTQ+ youths in the U.S consider suicide each year which is equal to 42% of all LGBTQ+ youths (ages 13 to 24). In other words, at least one young LGBTQ+ person attempts suicide every 45 seconds in the U.S. (Trevor Project, 2021).

These statistics demonstrate the crucial need for these young people to have support in times of crisis. 

Fortunately, not everyone turned their heads from this accident. This top telecommunications company just extended their support to The Trevor Project through a two-year, $750,000 commitment to support the LGBTQ+ community and mental health. This initiative totally works toward SDG indicator 3.4.2 to be fully aware of anyone in our surroundings and appreciate their identities🤍

Some of the funding will include consumer engagement opportunities, including:
(i) Every time a consumer posts on Instagram or Twitter using #TURNUPTHELOVE, they will donate $10 to The Trevor Project, up to $125,000 as of June 3, 2022
(ii) In participating stores, they will donate from $500 up to $250,000 to The The Trevor Project when new or existing customers mention The Trevor Project and buy a new line on a qualifying installment plan with an eligible Unlimited plan
(iii) To encourage volunteerism, they and WarnerMedia will launch a PSA featuring HBOMax LGBTQ+ talent and representing members of the LGBTQ+ youth at the highest risk

Can you guess which company is it?

Two days ago, we celebrated World Malaria Day and this year is marked under the theme “Harness innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save lives. 

Malaria, according to WHO, is a preventable and treatable illness that continues to have a catastrophic impact on people's health and livelihoods all over the world. In 85 countries, there are expected to be 241 million new cases of #malaria and 627, 000 malaria-related fatalities in 2020. In the WHO African Region, children under the age of five accounted for more than two-thirds of all fatalities. Despite consistent progress in reducing the global malaria burden between 2000 and 2015, development has slowed or paused in recent years, notably in high-burden nations in Sub-Saharan Africa 💉

Thankfully, there are a number of exciting technologies in the R&D pipeline, including new antimalarial medicines and upcoming malaria vaccines distributed to African population. In this moment, we would like to congratulate GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)
 and their team of malaria vaccine: Hal Barron - Chief Scientific Officer and President, R&D, Sue Middleton MBE - VP Communications and Government Affairs, Vaccines and Global Health, Dennis Di Mascio - Director, Global Health, Lead Malaria Vaccine Program, Lokmane ATTAR - Manager, Global Regulatory Affairs, Malaria & Oral Polio Vaccines CMC Expert and Souhila B. as Prodct Expert for Malaria Vaccine

In 2018, US Food and Drug Administration approved a single-dose #tafenoquine for the prevention of P. Vivax Malaria among children. GSK and their collaboration with the not-for-profit drug research partnership, Medicine for Malaria Venture (MMV), invented this outstanding discovery to create tafenoquine as an anti-relapse treatment for patients infected with P. vivax. This was the first novel medication for the prevention of recurrence in P. vivax malaria in for nearly 60 years, and it made a significant contribution to malaria eradication efforts.


Another great achievement of GSK is the recommendation by WHO in 2021 to expand the use of their RTS, S Malaria vaccine to children living in Sub-Saharan Africa and other locations with moderate to high malaria transmission. The vaccination trial programs undertaken in Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi have showed a substantial impact, lowering clinical episodes of malaria, hospital admissions with severe malaria, and mortality by over 70% when combined with seasonal antimalarial treatment 👏👏

We thank you, SDG Heroes, for your effort to saving countless children's and adults' lives from the deadly Malaria 🤍

May 2018: Kennedy Agyapong, a member of parliament from the ruling New Patriotic Party, threatened and encouraged violence against a broadcast journalist. The journalist was a member of investigative journalism whose undercover reporting had exposed traffickers, murderers, corrupt officials, and high-court judges. Ahmed Hussein-Suale Divela is his name.

September 2018: Divela thought his life was in danger and that influential figures in Ghana were plotting to harm him.

January 2019: A hundred yards down the road, Divela who was only 31 years old that time, was slumped in the driver's seat of his dusty blue BMW, bullet wounds in his chest and neck. According to eyewitnesses, he was killed by two men who fired close-range shots at the car as it waited for a bend.

Divela was assassinated in the sake of justice and eradicating the crime by broadcasting to the public.

We celebrated World Press Freedom Day yesterday. The word 'Freedom' in there, should serve as a stark reminder to governments of the need of upholding their commitment to press freedom, as well as a memorial to Divela and the hundreds of journalists who have been killed for doing their jobs.

Mahatma Gandhi once said "Freedom of the press is precious privilege that no country can forego"


In this moment, we appreciate the hard work and dedication of Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), an independent, non-profit organization where their work is based on its research, which provided a global snapshot of obstructions to a free press worldwide. CPJ denounces press freedom violations, meets with heads of state and high-ranking officials, advises on diplomatic efforts, and works with other organizations to ensure that justice prevails when journalists are imprisoned or killed. CPJ also provides comprehensive, life-saving support to journalists and media support staff working around the world through up-to-date safety and security information and rapid response assistance.

Round of applause goes to Jodie Ginsberg - President, Lucy W. - Emergencies Director, Kerry Paterson - Deputy Director of Emergencies, Valentine Gavard - Emergencies Consultant, Colin Pereira - Journalist Safety Specialist

We thank you, SDG Heroes, for doing your best to save and protect journalists' lives and keep retaining press freedom all around the world 🌍

Folks, in the coming month, as a part of SDG Heroes of the Week series, we will focus on "Help for Ukrainians". The war continues and more civilians and innocent people are left dead. 

This week, we'd like to recognize the efforts and support of Wine to Water, a non-profit organization that began by assisting Sudanese people by establishing water systems for victims of government-sponsored genocide.

Wine To Water has provided safe water to almost 1.4 million people in 50 countries 🚰

Survivors of Russia's siege on the Ukrainian city of Mariupol are saying that some inhabitants are being forced to gather rain and melt snow for drinking water as a result of the brutal battle since the Russian invasion. In many places, bottled water and occasionally tap water have become a luxury product that most people do not have access to right now. This constitutes a water catastrophe, which Wine To Water must handle promptly.

Wine To Water is distributing 12,000 water filters to migrants fleeing Ukraine, and in bordering areas in Poland and Romania. These water filters can clean 2.4 million gallons of water every day and can endure for ten years. This is the largest filter shipment in 18 year of Wine to Water's history.

We'd like to take this platform to acknowledge Wine To Water's team of their support to Ukraine and Grand Circle Foundation in making these 12,000 water filters closer to become true: Doc Henley - President and Founder, Sophie Davis - Event Coordinator, Courtney Mattar- Director of Partnerships and Philanthropy, Maria Swords - Stewardship Coordinator and Parmod Chandna - Chief Operating Officer

Thank you for your contribution, SDG Heroes 🤍 Hopefully together we can end this terrible war

Since Russian forces were pushed back from Kyiv at the end of March, the dead of over 1,000 people have been discovered in the Bucha district, many of whom were hurriedly buried in shallow graves. Unprovoked violence causes injury to innocent individuals, hence medical supplies will be critical in this situation ⚠️

In this moment, we would like to recognize the support of Novartis which is committed to helping the humanitarian effort in Ukraine and make an initial donation of USD 3 million to be share within three humanitarian organizations: International Committee of the Red Cross - ICRC and Red Crescent Movement, Save the Children International and International Rescue Committee

As a medicine company, Novartis has delivered more than one million packs of antibiotics, painkillers, cardiovascular and oncology treatment which amounts to more than USD 25 million in medical aid to maintain the supply to those who rely on these drugs in Ukraine and even in the border areas where people are seeking refuge.

In terms of international sanction in response to the invasion of Russia to Ukraine, Novartis has been pausing the initiation of new clinical trials and the enrollment of new study participants in existing trials

We would like to appreciate the team of Novartis: Vas Narasimhan - CEO, Lutz Hegemann - President, Global Health, Bahadir Pakis - Managing Director Novartis Romania, General Manager Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Michael Kocher - President, CEO, Board Member, Novartis, Sandoz and Mona Hassan Ghattass - Supreme Heart Failure Specialist

Thank you SDG heroes for your contribution, let's hope together we can immediately end this terrible war 🕊️

Happy weekend everyone! Time to get yourself learned more every week all about SDGs ♻️

This time our quiz topic is related to aviation industry 🛫

Everything we do, from the food we eat, products we buy to the way we travel, releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and so has an impact on the planet’s climate. But some activities have a far greater impact than others.

Aviation industry's contribution in terms fo the total direct emissions are various. According to European Commission, in 2017 direct emissions from aviation accounted for 3.8% of total CO2 emissions or 13.9% of total emissions from transportation sector, making it the second biggest source of transport GHG emissions after road transport. Meanwhile according to Federal Aviation Administration, aviation's share of US CO2 emissions was about 2.7% of total domestic emissions in 2019. 

At first glance, that might not seem like very big contribution since International Council on Clean Transporation (ICCT) estimated just 3% of the global population take regular flights. However, to give an idea how massive each single trip using airplane's contribution to GHG emissions, a return flight from London to San Francisco emits around 5.5 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per person, which is more than twice the emissions produced by a family car in a year 🚗💨

Assuming the percentage of people travelling by plane increases due to the increasing presence of low-cost carriers (Investopedia, 2022), doing absolutely nothing is a setback for such decarbonization goals. Fortunately, several manufacturers have started creating electric aircraft, which is deemed a win-win solution in reducing their fuel cost which represents 15-20% of their total cost and as well as an avenue for addressing emissions

Just three weeks ago, this aircraft manufacturer has struck the first ever commercial electric aircraft order, with Massachusetts-based Cape Air agreeing for the purchase of its 75 electric aircraft! Moreover, this company is also one of the five finalists for Innovation of the Year in the 2022 Geekwire Awards for developing three variants of their all-electric aircraft, which are optimized for cargo shipment, commuter passenger service and executive business travel ⚡✈️

Can you guess which company is it?

Perhaps our Top 7 leaderboard might be able to pick and share their answer? 🧑‍🏫👩‍🏫 Matthew McQuade Martina Macpherson Judith Bogner Janice Daly, CFA Eila Kreivi Christopher Larsson Karim Z.

Happy weekend everyone! Time to get yourself learned a little bit about SDGs 🌲

Up to today, roughly four in ten people globally owned a #smartphones and the number will continue growing rapidly as pandemic makes every living become more digital used. Moreover, according to All Green Recycling, Americans change their cell phone every 18.2 months which is the third fastest change in the world after UK and France. However, looking from environmental perspectives, smartphones contibute approximately around 10% of total global electronic waste which is estimated to weigh more than 50 million tonnes in 2019.

Out of those 50 million tonnes, 70% of this waste goes directly into landfills. As we know, e-waste contains toxic substances such as mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic which are lethal. Even after slow burning they change form but never completely disappear. These toxic elements can lead to health hazards such as permanent neurological damage (Diminished IQ), Reproductive Disorder (Miscarriages) and even cancer.

Furthermore, in many countries especially developing countries where battery waste handling knowledge is not proper enough, the e-waste can cause fire and fatalities. According to California Product Stewardship Council, of the 26 surveyed waste facilities, around 83% reported having a fire at their facility in the past two years where 40% of them caused by Lithium-Ion batteries, the most common type of batteries used in smartphones.

Fortunately, several smartphone companies have started their initiatives to handle the e-waste produced by their products. Their approach is designing for longevity and repairability which can be a game changer in the fight against e-waste ane emissions. In 2020, they were in partnership with Closing the Loop in collecting more than 5000 kg of batteries in Nigeria that were then shipped to Europe for safe recycling. This company earned the best score compared to their competitors according to Guide to Greener Electronics 2017 conducted by Greenpeace. 📱♻️

Can you guess which company is it?

A global measure of farm animal welfare management, policy commitment, performance and disclosure in food companies - The Businness Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare together with Compassion in World Farming and FOUR PAWS released a report in 2021 to disclose how top food companies are doing regarding the farm animal welfare.

The result is the overall average score is only 32 out of 100% (compared to 35% In 2020) where 127 of the 150 evaluated companies achieve an 'E' or 'F' impact rating, signifying that these companies are failing to demonstrate improved animal welfare impacts for farm animals in their global supply chains. Despite of falling performance of the overall evaluated companies, important progress been made by some companies who are continuing to invest in improving welfare standards. One of the five leading companies just expanded the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) Assured range they sell. They are alongside being the only UK retailer to offer RSPCA Assured milk and looking forward to carry the RSPCA Assured logo on their shell eggs, pork, farmed salmon, trout and Oakham Gold Chicken 🦈🐔

In addition, they only source 100% free range eggs for both their fresh shell egg and ingredient supply since 1997 and 2002. In 2017, they were the first retailer to sign the Better Chicken Commitment to deliver higher welfare chicken across all their fresh, frozen and ingredient chicken by 2026 which set them to become the first major retailer to only sell fresh chicken that meets the criteria for the Better Chicken Commitment! By December 2022, all of their continental pork will be sourced from free farrowing systems where currently 21% of their continental pork comes from there systems.

Hi everyone! Time to get yourself learned all about SDGs 🌈

In 2019, according to The Guardian, supermarkets was responsible of 900,000 tonnes of plastic packaging to the market. This is a 1.6% reduction compared to 2018, but a 1.2% increase compared to 2017! Even if the production of plastic bags was down 8% on 2018, it was still significant. Additionally, supermarkets sold 2.1 billion plastic bags in 2019, including 1.58 billion labelled “bags for life” which are intended to be reusable. This equates to almost 57 “bags for life” per UK household in 2019, more than one a week, and is a 65% increase since 2017.

However, not all supermarkets showed little or no commitment in reducing their plastic waste. This supermarket company initiated a public commitment to eliminate all single-use plastics by 2025, solidly placing it ahead of all other retailers for this category. This company kicked off its commitment by banning plastic checkout bags in a subset of its stores and offering paper options for grocery delivery and pickup, for a price. The company is also developing sustainable packaging supplier guidelines. 

In 2021, this company ranked first out of 20 major US grocery retailers based on their efforts to reduce their reliance on plastics,, in which this ranking is conducted by Greenpeace with a score of 34.88 out of 100. Note that it is still a low score as Greenpeace stated that compared to their first ranking in 2019, all supermarkets they assesed received failing score because they largely deprioritized sustainability, including plastic pollution, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this company still worth the recognize since they do better compared to their competitors.

Folks, do you know March 21 marked International Forest Day? Forests are home to about 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity, with more than 60,000 tree species 🌳

However, each year, the world loses 10 million hectares of forest, roughly the size of Iceland

This should serve as a wake-up call to stop deforestation and encourage reforestation in all countries, particularly in those with large forest areas

The Harmony Foundation awarded WeForest🌿 the Mother Teresa Memorial Award for Social Justice in December 2021. WeForest achieved its original target of restoring 25,000 hectares of forest two years early, and by 2020, they hope to have planted more than 100 million trees by the end of 2024. The new 2020 programs aim to safeguard endangered forests in Zambia and rehabilitate those that have already been destroyed in Senegal.

This week we would like to appreciate the dedications of the whole team and each country manager, Marie-Noëlle Keijzer-Noelle Keijzer - Cofounder & CEO, Matthias De Beenhouwer - Country Director for Zambia, Cristina Yuri Vidal - Project Manager in Brazil, Aklilu Negussie Mekuria (PhD) Mekuria - Country Director for Ethiopia and Ruben Foquet - Malawi Country Representative.


We wish WeForest the best of luck in reaching their objective by the end of 2024.🍀

Folks, since trees offers kindness in every aspect of our living, let's do more everyday to preserve them! 💪

Happy weekend everyone! It's the time to announce our last week quiz winners 🏆

Schroders has launched an open-ended fund that will invest in listed companies “facilitating a sustainable transition to a digital economy”. What makes them more special than the other asset companies who also launched their digital infrastructure fund is that they will exclude companies who do not have the specific ESG criteria in their business model. Each company will be analyzed using their proprietary ESG analysis tool, for example the Schroders' policy about human right, board gender diversity, carbon intensity, fossil fuel exposure and so on.

Hats off to... 🎊🎉
Maria Lombardo Wirsiy Emile

Also we'd like to appreciate the hard work of digital infrastructure fund team of Schroders: 
Tom Walker and Hugo Machin as Co-head Global Listed Real Assets and Ben Forster, CFA as Portfolio Manager. 

The involvement of ESG criteria in their fund selection is very important and here is what the team stated about digital infrastructure:
“Digital infrastructure has a key role to play in promoting economic competitiveness, social inclusion and reducing energy consumption. We believe digital infrastructure is the fourth utility such is its importance to society, and for many businesses and governments it is ‘mission critical. In our view, we are in the early stages of the digital transformation, this provides a compelling growth opportunity for companies that are at forefront of this transformation and the true value of digital infrastructure is not fully appreciated by the market.

“By utilising Schroders’ extensive research and ESG capabilities, our aim is to select companies that practice good governance and have demonstrated a commitment to sustainability, which meet the fund’s sustainability criteria. We are confident that, combined with our focus on companies backed by physical assets, we can deliver strong long-term capital growth for our investors.”

Back in 90s, a mom spent a lot of her time with her autistic son at home, teaching him and providing him with all the care and attention he required for his development. Furthermore, she volunteered to work with children suffering from cerebral palsy

During this time, there was almost no awareness about autism in India. The majority of children with autism routinely received a diagnosis of mental retardation. Others were diagnosed as having ‘Minimal Brain Dysfunction’ and were called slow learners or deemed to have behaviour problems. If they attended school at all, these children were found in facilities for the mentally retarded, where the same intervention techniques were provided to all children 🚸

The situation motivated this mother to do something with a group of concerned parents in Delhi. To build social skills in their sons and provide support to each other, these parents organised outings for the boys and formed a very small support group. 

At the same time, one of the mothers began publishing articles in the popular media about autism, and was met with a stream of letters from parents in other parts of India asking for information about the disorder. Regardless of their location, parents wrote with similar stories of frustration, and asked for help in handling their child's difficult behaviour. 

After hearing from so many parents with such similar questions, it became clear that the time had come to form a network of these families to share ideas, disseminate information, and provide support. She was Merry barua and this marks the beginning of autism movement in India!

The beginning of April is marked as "April Fools" which is all fun and games but not many of us know that 2nd April is celebrated World Autism Awareness Day. Today, SDGlabs.ai would like to take a moment to appreciate the hard work of Action for Autism, National Centre for Autism India , who initiated the autism action for children in India, country with the highest rate of autism in the world. 

To the team, merry barua - NGO Head, Aditi Muranjan - Assistant, Kathakali Pandey - Project Manager, Bhanu Sehrawat - Volunteer, and Rakshita Shekhar as the Executive Board Member & Guest Lecturer we thank you for the dedication and hard work you put for the children

To this date, AFA has managed to bring autism to the forefront of national consciousness. The biggest marker of this development is that autism is now included in the National Trust. The subject is no longer met with ignorance but instead, it is treated with sensitivity. 

Once again, thank you SDG Heroes for your dedication 🤍

Fender has stated that it will no longer use ash in its production guitars in the future. According to Justin Norvell as the EVP of Fender products, the decision was made in response to the ash tree loss caused by the Emerald Ash Borer beetle, which has moved down from Canada. Despite the fact that the corporation employs lighter, more porous swamp ash generated in the south of the United States, the beetle's growth has been rapid. At this rate, it is expected that the whole forest and ash will be gone in a few of years 🌳

Furthermore, Fender has committed to sourcing its goods from sustainable woods through a variety of initiatives, including a cooperation with the Music Wood Coalition to safeguard vulnerable forest ecosystems and a switch from rosewood to Pau Ferro fingerboards 🎸

Kudos to ... 🎊🎉

It has been two months since Russia invaded Ukraine, and the UN reports that more than 4.9 million Ukrainians have fled the nation as a result of the war, with 13100-13300 fatalities

In the midst of Ukraine's difficult times, several large corporations are giving assistance ranging from medical services and supplies to housing, food, and even job opportunities.

The Adecco Group has launched a new portal, https://lnkd.in/dKcQheqg, which is a free-to-post platform for applicants from Ukraine looking for employment in countries where they have sought asylum, as well as companies looking for workers in countries where the Adecco Group has a presence. The website is available in both Ukrainian and English 

The gateway includes the following features:
- Job search in approximately 60 countries and areas where the Adecco Group is represented by its three worldwide business units: Adecco, LHH, and Akkodis.
- Free online training programs for CV creation, job hunting, and career counseling.
- Reskilling and upskilling in areas such as digital capabilities and language skills, for example.
- Links to resources to assist refugees in finding homes.
- Links to government websites that provide information on labor rules, with an initial emphasis on European nations.
- A job advertising option for businesses wishing to hire displaced workers.

In this moment, we would like to appreciate the dedication and hard work of the team: Alain Dehaze - CEO, Alex Fleming - Regional President of Northern Europe, Angelo Lo Vecchio - SVP Adecco and Head of Eastern Europe, Middle East & North Africa and Jerick Develle - Head of Crisis Operation Team 👏👏

To date, over 1,100 organizations from across the world have joined up to a new online job matching network to assist persons displaced by the violence in Ukraine, and have listed over 3,000 available openings. Furthermore, over 3,200 people who fled Ukraine and are now attempting to establish new lives outside the nation have applied for employment on the platform. Their matching engine has already distributed 6,000 resumes to firms who are looking for employees.

We wish The Adecco Group and other job openings the best of luck in assisting Ukrainians to remain safe amid the war 💙💛

Tivoli Garden uses recycled cups for all kinds of drinks in the park. The cups can be taken home, but can also be handed in at recycling machines. The park also provides a recycling laundry that collects, washes, and distributes the cups back to the shops. In 2021, their recycling machine laundry succeeded in reusing the cups 7.1 times Not only recycling initiatives, they sorted 9 tonnes of food waste in the same year. This resulted in a production of 1,070 Nm3 methane which corresponds to 3,060 kWh of electricity and 3,825 kWh of district heating.

They also have a strong focus on animal welfare; as in 2021, their purchase comparison between animal welfare certified pork and conventional pork is 7:3 and to reduce their operation emissions, they use a tram that runs on biofuel.

”At night it was difficult to sleep because of the pains in my body, and then we had to get up at 04.00 and work until 16.00. I was always tired.” - Abdoulaye (9 years old), child labourer on a cocoa farm

“My father sent me here to work... I haven’t seen my family for three years” Yoa Kouassi Child (16 years old), child labourer on a cocoa farm

“You get very tired when you work so much,” he said, showing scars he still has from his machete injuries. “Every day I would wake at six o’clock and go straight to the cocoa farm.” Dera (15 years old), child labourer on a cocoa farm

1.56 million children are still illegally working on cocoa farms in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire today. That equals to one in every two children in each cocoa-growing household. And 95 percent of these children work in very hazardous conditions, such as using sharp instruments, lifting heavy loads, or being exposed to agrochemicals.

It has been two decades since the Harkin-Engel Protocol, which committed to abolish the worst types of child labor within five years in 2005, yet the data above show that no meaningful progress has been achieved by major cocoa corporations either⚠️

Thankfully, many NGOs have viewed this child labor practice as inhumane and have started campaigning actions to reduce the prevalence rate of child labor, one of them is KidsRights. The NGO invests in initiatives related to the International Children's Peace Prize Winners' topics. KidsRights programs are focused on accomplishing, supporting, and observing children's rights, particularly the abolition of child labor abuses. Their efforts directly benefit the local environment and children's rights.

In this moment, we would like to appreciate the great work of the team, Scipio van der Stoel - Secretary and Member of the Board, Cindy De Visser - Member of the Board, Ludovica Del Vecchio - Project Manager, Chandrima Chattopadhyay - Program Coordinator, Ashish Shinde - Action Developer - Aware India


We hope the best for Kidsrights in tackling issues together with their partners to end the worst forms of child labours worldwide 🌍

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, most economic transactions are now done digitally. The pandemic has accelerated the need for digital transformation and things such as internet broadband, data centers, and even fiber optics should be considered as an infrastructure sector itself.

Looking at the SDGs, the digital infrastructure sector has social benefits that align with many of the SDG goals, particularly in improving social and development through many channels: 
1. Internet connectivity and improved telephone communication can improve access to jobs and education, thus increasing the likelihood to get out of poverty (SDG 1);
2. Digital infrastructure and Internet of Things can boost agricultural sustainability and improve food security (SDG 2);
3. Telecommunications can reduce income inequality by providing work opportunities and free access to knowledge to less developed countries and rural communities (SDG 10). 

Even if the increased bandwidth and traffic from data centers relatively consume more energy (primarily power), technical advancements has made video conferencing as a standard rather than a pandemic anomaly. This implies less travel by air or road, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions📲

Responding to the need for digital infrastructure, an asset management company has formed an open-ended fund which will invest in publicly traded firms that "enable a sustainable transition to a digital economy." What distinguishes this company from others is that it would exclude firms that do not meet specified ESG requirements in their business model. Each firm will be examined using their proprietary ESG analysis tool, which covers the company's human rights policy, board gender diversity, carbon intensity, fossil fuel exposure, and so on.

Can you figure out which of the following asset companies it is?

Happy early easter everyone! Are you relishing chocolate eggs with your family and friends this weekend? 🐣🐰

Today our quiz is linked with the very Easter egg! Have you wondered if these eggs can be a product of child labor?

The chocolate industry is well-known for utilizing child labor, especially in West-Africa where the prevalence rate can be up to 50% which means 1 in 2 children in cocoa growing households in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire are in child labor (NORC report, 2020). 

What's worse is the prevalence rate of hazardous child labors which increased by 13% in aggregate between 2008/09 and 2018/19 ⚠️

The story behind the high prevalence rate is the children of Western Africa are surrounded by intense poverty, and many begin working at a young age to help support their families. Some children end up on the cocoa farms because they need work and traffickers tell them that the job pays well. Other children are sold to traffickers or farm owners by their own relatives, who are unaware of the dangerous work environment and the lack of any provisions for an education. Often, traffickers abduct the young children from small villages in neighboring African countries. In one village in Burkina Faso, almost every mother in the village has had a child trafficked onto cocoa farms

Once they have been taken to the cocoa farms, the children may not see their families for years, if ever. They work for long hours, with some being forced to work up to 14 hours a day. Some of the children use chainsaws to clear the forests. Other children climb the cocoa trees to cut bean pods using a machete. Once they cut the bean pods from the trees, the children pack the pods into sacks that weigh more than 100 pounds. 

Knowing child labor has been one of the most fatal issues in cocoa industry, many organizations, including ILO through Harkin-Engel Protocol aims to end the worst forms of child labor within 5 years. However, the progress made by major chocolate companies which is accountable to more than half of chocolate productions is very slow even until now, hence the pledge was extended to reduce the worst forms of child labor by 70% across cocoa industry in Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire by 2020. 

Despite of slow progress made by others, not all companies showed little commitments in ending child labors. This company is being transparent in reporting their child labor prevalence where they created KPIs such as number of cases of child labor detected and remediated at Open Chain partner cooperatives with the CLMRS. They will do effective remediation for detected child labors which involves providing birth certificates so children can attend school, wheelbarrows to prevent heavy lifting, setting up health insurance policies and organizing bicycles for transport to and from school, school fee support, and so on.

In 2022, they earned best score labelled as green egg which means 'leading the industry on policy' conducted by Be Slavery Free 🎉

Happy weekend everyone! Time to give a shot to our weekly SDG quiz ✅

Amusement parks are often the place for family activities, but behind the experience visitors can get, there are many things that should be highlighed from the SDG's perspective. For example, energy consumption from rides, waste handling, as well as materials used in making food and beverages 🎪🎢

This amusement park uses recycled cups for all kinds of drinks in the park. The cups can be taken home, but can also be handed in at recycling machines. The park also provides a recycling laundry that collects, washes, and distributes the cups back to the shops. In 2021, their recycling machine laundry succeeded in reusing the cups 7.1 times 👏 Not only recycling initiatives, they sorted 9 tonnes of food waste in the same year. This equals to a production of 1,070 Nm3 methane which corresponds to 3,060 kWh of electricity and 3,825 kWh of district heating.

They also have a strong focus on animal welfare; as in 2021, their purchase comparison between animal-welfare certified pig and conventional pig is 7:3 and to reduce their operation emissions, they use a tram that runs on biofuel.

Happy weekend everyone! ⛱️ Time to get yourself learned all about SDGs with our weekly quiz 🧠

A large proportion of urban and inter-urban transportation networks remain inaccessible to people with disabilities around the world.
Mobility restrictions are a significant barrier to disability-inclusive development because they worsen people with disabilities' personal, economic, and social isolation.

In 2013, the GAATES - Global Alliance on Accessible Technologies and Environments polled 257 people from 39 countries to better understand the mobility difficulties that people with disabilities confront throughout the world. According to the findings, the two most significant difficulties were accessing public transportation vehicles and driver/staff attitudes. Furthermore, in South Africa, there may be exploitation due to unfairly increased charges in the informal taxi business, and in Zimbabwe, communication challenges exist, particularly for individuals who are deaf.

Now let's start the case 🔍

This corporation is one of the global leaders in the taxi industry. They are one of 168 companies that received a perfect score on the 2021 Disability Equality Index (DEI) administered by The American Association of People with Disabilities and Disability:IN. Their technology is assisting in increasing mobility and independence for riders with disabilities by offering features and capabilities such as cashless payments, upfront pricing, service animal policies, on-demand transportation, anti-discrimination policies, and even equipped vehicles that connect riders who use non-folding motorized wheelchairs with drivers in wheelchair-accessible vehicles equipped with ramps or lifts.

Finally, there is a well-known Julie Russel quotation in her podcast with Max Bittner as the CEO of Vestiaire Collective and Mark Maslin, "Climate Podcast: Does the Earth Have to be A Fashion Victim" 👗👠

"Brands can work to mitigate that footprint and reduce it as much as they can. Another thing that stellar always really likes to talk about as well, actually is the lack of regulation in this space. So brands can honestly almost get away with anything they want to do. There's no consistency in government regulation around the world...."

Hello everyone👋

Tomorrow marks a month since Russia invaded Ukraine. Millions of Ukrainian refugees fled the country to find security, and have reached out for medical aid, food, job and even housing 🏠

Airbnb is one of top vacation rental companies worldwide, which in partnership with IOM - UN Migration connected Ukrainian to access free, short-term housing in Poland, Moldova, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia.

As of March 14, 2022, more than 36,800 hosts signed up on Airbnb.org; 22,300 of these signed up in the past two weeks to offer their homes to refugees around the world.

In the light of current affairs, we would like to appreciate the great work of Vladimír Beroun Beroun - Senior Public Policy Manager, Yvette Ceri - Consumer & Product Communications Manager DACH and CEE, and Kathrin Anselm - General Manager Airbnb DACH, CEE & Russia

Besides developing policies to assist Ukrainian refugees, they have been actively using LinkedIn to share the word

Thank you, SDG Heroes, for your sincere efforts and deeds. Hopefully, we are able to put a end to this terrible war 🕊️

Hello everyone 👋 Although today may be a typical working day for you, this Tuesday, we celebrate something of utmost importance!

Happy International Water Day, everyone! 🚰

Folks, did you know? 💡

1 faucet with 1 drop per second produces 21.6 liters of water. 
In each day, this adds up to over 6 gallons of water.

And in a year, this wastes 2083 gallons of water

If 10 to 20 thousand individuals do this, we lose an opportunity to solve water crisis problem in Qatar!

Therefore, ALWAYS turn off your water faucet when you are not using it😊 

To mark this day, SDGLabs.ai would like to celebrate top three NGOs which focus on tackling the water shortage crisis around the world 💧

Hats off to...
charity: water with their CEO - Carly Cott , CFO & COO - Aditi Deeg and Chief Global Water - Christoph Gorder

Water For People with their CEO - Eleanor Allen, CFO - Abdi D., and COO - Mark Duey

Water.org with their CEO - Gary White, CFO Fernando Alandia and COO - Vedika Bhandarkar

Thank you for your contribution, SDG Heroes because more people can have access to water 💙

Happy Saturday everyone! Let's take a look at our last week's quiz winners🏆

Since the 2010/11 season, all 20 Premier League teams have been introducing a new home kit each season, despite a proposal in the 2000 Premier League Charter that states that its life cycle can be extended to upto two seasons.

In 2021, Brentford Football Club made a big announcement that the team would keep the same home kit for two seasons in a row. 

Their CEO, Jon Varney emphasized that the team believes in making football affordable for their fans and realise the need for making the game more focused on sustainability. While it's not normal practice for Premier League clubs to roll a kit over for two seasons, fans have told them that they would be in favor of the savings that a two-season shirt would provide! 

Kudos to... 🎊🎉

Hi folks, weekend is coming! It is SDG Quiz-o'clock! ⏰

SDG 15 Life on Land, especially target 15.7 aims to end #poaching and to address both the demand and supply of #illegalwildlife products 🐅🐘🐍

According to the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the #fashion industry is one of the top 7 industries responsible for the wildlife imports. Luxury fashion, in particular, poses a high demand for wildlife products; worth roughly US$100 billion (Okonkwo. 2016). Moreover, fashion industry also plays a role in illegal wildlife imports, which is worth US$20 billion in total (Tow, Symes & Carasso, 2021)

To curb this, NGOs handling global animal welfare are increasingly taking action. One of them is FOUR PAWS, which in 2021 released a survey to disclose the most (and the least) animal-friendly fashion brands. They created Good on You rating for every fashion brand they examined; on aspects such as use of certified wool, adopting a formal animal welfare policy, and so on.

Happy Saturday, everyone? Are you ready for this week's SDG Quiz? It might have to do with a hobby you are indulging this weekend! 🎸

Smashing guitar and amplifiers was well-known in the 1960s, when The Who's Pete Townshend, the crowned king of smashing guitar, received the earliest credit for the act. However, in the two decades, after the ESG approach picked up in 2005, this throwaway culture was no longer relevant, and now, is even criticized.

Globally, factories emit over 10 billion tons of CO2 per year, accounting for roughly half of all pollution. Musical instrument manufacturers may not be the most greatest villains behind this number, but they inevitably play a role. Guitars, for example, are usually composed of wood, especially rare or old-growth wood such as ebony or alder; 40 percent of which is illegally sourced. Furthermore, this industry has been struggling multiple controversies including illegal logging, resource scarcity, and new environmental restrictions governing the trading in endangered tree species.

Luckily, new technology and innovation have enabled this industry to develop more environmentally friendly musical instruments. Can you guess which of these musical instrument manufacturers phased out ash for production-line of their electric guitars? 🪵🎸

Happy weekend, folks 👋 Let's enjoy the weekend by learning a bit more about SDGs with our weekly quiz ✅

Many corporations, across around the world, initiated their sustainability actions by committing to global climate agreement, such as net zero emissions path. Even football clubs, as business also inevitably emit scope 1, 2, 3 greenhouse gas emissions. 

Premier League 2021/2022 drove many #football clubs to source their home kits sustainably this season, for example using sustainable materials - 100% #recycledpolyester , recycled plastic bottles, #sustainablefabrics and so on. There is one football club, in particular, that has gone beyond by wearing their 2021-22 kit another year; which would also save fans money 👕💰 

By doing this, they contribute to #SDG11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities and #SDG13 - Climate Action; this even promotes circular economy and preventing pollution based on EU Taxonomy objectives as most football shirts are made from polyester which has more than double the carbon footprint of a cotton shirt 👕

Can you guess which football club it is? Who knows it might be your favorite club to watch all night ⚽

Let's see what our top 5 leaderboard think of the answer 🙌

Hello everyone, SDGLabs.ai wishes you a wonderful weekend! 🏖️ It's time to brush up on your SDG knowledge by taking our quiz 

SDG 5 - Gender Equality, in conjunction with SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth emphasize on protection of labor rights. This also includes parental leave policies formulated to allow to-be parent employees to balance family and work life.

There are numerous reasons why parental leave is important. For example, in the book "Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women," authors, David G. Smith and W. Brad Johnson assert that women perceive that gender equality at work begins with men becoming equal partners at home 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

In 2021, Seramount, part of EAB revealed the winners of the greatest companies for dads. According to their findings, 88 percent of the companies provide fully compensated #genderneutral leave for parents, and 75 percent provide a phase-back to work after leave 💵

According to reports, Mercedes-Benz has the widest gap between official test results and average real-world driving. As a result, by 2030, the growing gap would require drivers spending €1 trillion more on fuel and the EU importing six billion more barrels of oil, jeopardizing energy independence and the EU's balance of payments. As more fuel is burnt, CO2 emissions rise dramatically above predictions 🚗🚙💨

Are you ready to learn more about SDGs? Try our weekly quiz 🧠

According to the WWF's palm oil scorecard, companies are falling short when it comes to promoting #sustainablepalmoil production and combating tropical #deforestation

This is crucial because palm oil, when produced irresponsibly, can devastate #forests , #wildlife , #communities , and the global environment. And hence, it works against achieving #sdgs - SDG 8, SDG 13 and SDG 15.

Only one company has received more than 20 points (out of a maximum 22) on WWF's oil scorecard, giving a positive signal to the rest of the industry that sustainable and deforestation-free palm oil is attainable.

Let's hear what our top 5 leaderboard think of the answer 💭

Hello folks 👋🏻 Let's enjoy this Saturday by learning SDG with our new quiz! ✍🏻

#Gentrification is becoming increasingly widespread in the United States, where lower-income communities are receiving huge amounts of new investment, which includes providing amenities, raising housing values, and attracting new upper-income people. When members of a racial or ethnic group who have lived in gentrified areas for a long period are forced away, this can result in cultural displacement. Furthermore, if no action is taken, fast gentrification may result in increased severe poverty and the expansion of slums in cities. This occurs because increased levels of investment make it difficult for #vulnerablepopulations to own a home 🏡

This contradicts what #SDGs 1.4 and 11.1 are targetting

Let's see what our top 5 leaderboard think of the answer 🤔

Hello everyone! Let's enjoy this Saturday with our weekly SDG quiz! 🤓🧠

In 2016, ICTT Laboratory reported on car brands with the highest gap between official #fuel consumption and average real-world driving per manufacturer. The higher the gap implies a lower credibility for the entire EU’s car labelling and regulatory system. In addition, this is against the progress of SDG 11.2 which talks about #sustainabletransport 🚗

China is the greatest consumer and manufacturer of agricultural plastics, consuming at least 5.2 million tonnes per year. This includes three million tons of film (Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, 2020) and two million tons of irrigation equipment (Zen, 2018).

This number is multiple times bigger than European Union (28+2 countries); which in 2018 was responsible for 1.74 million tones of plastics in agricultural sector, or South Africa (0.15 million tonnes) and Brazil (0.02 million tonnes) which are the highest among their own regions (FAO, 2021).
