Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through Finance, Technology and Law Reform Achieving the SDGs requires a fundamental rethink from businesses and governments across the globe. To make the ambitious goals a reality, trillions of dollars need to be harnessed to mobilise finance and accelerate progress towards the SDGs. Bringing together leaders from the World Bank, the financial and business sectors, the startup community and academia, this important, topically relevant volume explains what the SDGs are, how they came about and how they can be accelerated. Real-world case studies and authoritative insights address how to direct investment of existing financial resources and re-align the global financial system to reflect the SDGs. In depth chapters discuss how financial institutions, such as UBS Wealth Management, Manulife Asset Management and Moody's Rating Agency are supporting the SDGs. The opportunities arising from Blockchain, Big Data, Digital Identity and cutting-edge FinTech and RegTech applications are explored, whilst the relevance of sustainable and transparent global supply chains is underscored. Significant attention is paid to law reform which can accelerate progress of the SDGs through SME Financing, Crowdfunding, Peer-to-Peer Lending and tax restructuring. To achieve the 'World We Want', much needs to be done. The recommendations contained within this book are critical for supporting a fundamental shift in thinking from business and governments around the world, and for building a more just and prosperous future for all.

Demanding Energy - Space, Time and Change (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2018): Allison Hui, Rosie Day, Gordon Walker Demanding Energy - Space, Time and Change (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2018)

R2,573 Discovery Miles 25 730 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

This edited collection critically engages with an important but rarely-asked question: what is energy for? This starting point foregrounds the diverse social processes implicated in the making of energy demand and how these change over time to shape the past patterns, present dynamics and future trajectories of energy use. Through a series of innovative case studies, the book explores how energy demand is embedded in shared practices and activities within society, such as going to music festivals, cooking food, travelling for business or leisure and working in hospitals. Demanding Energy investigates the dynamics of energy demand in organisations and everyday life, and demonstrates how an understanding of spatiality and temporality is crucial for grasping the relationship between energy demand and everyday practices. This collection will be of interest to researchers and students in the fields of energy, climate change, transport, sustainability and sociologies and geographies of consumption and environment. Chapters 1 and 15 of this book are available open access under a CC BY 4.0 license at link.springer.com

Path of Duty - A Fictionalised Account of the War-Time Struggle for Change at Wellington College (Paperback): Robin Gordon... Path of Duty - A Fictionalised Account of the War-Time Struggle for Change at Wellington College (Paperback)

Robin Gordon Walker was born in 1911 and went to Wellington College in 1924, where he excelled academically and at sport. He returned to the school in 1932 as a youthful and charismatic teacher, later becoming housemaster of the Hardinge and head of the history sixth. Robin and the chaplain Geoffrey How, both OWs, sought to bring a more liberal and enlightened attitude to College, a period which flourished under the headmastership of Bobby Longden, tragically killed by a bomb in 1940. Older masters were hidebound and rigid in their methods and many of the' Old Guard' Housemasters took exception to the move for change led by Robin and Geoffrey, who had a more relaxed view on friendships between boys and encouraged them to have friend in other Houses, a practice much frowned on. The 'Old Guard' made repeated appeals to the Headmaster, WH House, to intervene and take sides. In 1943 Geoffrey was dismissed by House and Robin, to the regret of many, resigned in protest. He died tragically young in 1947. Robin wrote a novel in 1944 fictionalising the events that took place at Wellington.All the names and places were changed, but the essence of his story rings true to all who know about this period in the history of the College. It is an important and timely publication: the conflicting attitudes are portrayed with skill and verve and the denouement is moving and powerful. With an afterword by Anthony Fletcher, OW

Modern Competitive Strategy (Paperback, 4th edition): Gordon Walker, Tammy Madsen Modern Competitive Strategy (Paperback, 4th edition)

Modern Competitive Strategy, 4e focuses on what makes firms successful over time, ultimately within industries that are global in scope. It is meant to be comprehensive yet succinct, discipline-based yet practical, highly general yet applicable to currently emerging industries - all of this, we hope, without sacrificing quality of content or style. It is intended to be appropriate for teaching at all levels-undergraduate, MBA, and EMBA - and to be understandable to students both with and without business experience. To this end, it serves as a relatively complete introduction to strategy as an academic and practical discipline. Furthermore, it is flexible in its fit to course length - module, quarter, or semester.
