From Sustainability to "Shared Value": how modern corporations are addressing climate change
Anja Nikolova, Yale University
 
Abstract:
"Doing well by doing good" - from theory to practice. Companies worldwide are shifting from philanthropic practices to a remodeled form of corporate social responsibility, known as shared value, to positively impact their bottom line. Unilever, PepsiCo, Walmart, Starbucks, Nike, and LVMH are among the corporations embedding socio-environmental opportunities into their operations and driving business innovation to gain a competitive advantage. From climate change and resource waste to social welfare and supply chain management, companies mitigate their impacts on the latter by recognizing them as market opportunities to better influence a wider global audience rooted in scaled local improvements. This seminar will explore shared value and the triple bottom line of "People, planet and profit", which underpins social equity, economic and environmental benefits, and is increasingly considered the modern goal of sustainability.

 
Olivia Hernandez is attending the University of Edinburgh as a Global Scholar. The Rotary Club of Humble sponsored her and her education is funded by a grant funded by a $31,500 scholarship funded with $15,000 of DDF from the District and $1,000 from the Club with a $15,500 match from The Rotary Foundation. She shares a summary of her first semester.
 
 
First Semester Summary
 Now that second semester is beginning, I’ve had time to reflect on my first semester at the University of Edinburgh and can honestly say it was everything I hoped for it to be and more. I’ve gotten the opportunity to become involved in several different activities and clubs, as well as to visit various Rotary clubs and meet their members. It’s amazing how much has gone on in just the first four months!
           
 
Luis Fernando Stanley Smith is an Inbound Rotary Youth Exchange Student from Paraguay which is in South America and is being hosted this year by the Rotary Club of Humble.  Each year Humble Rotary hosts 2 inbound students and finds 2-3 host families for each student to live with during their yearlong stay here in the Humble area.  The students attend a local high school and are enrolled as Juniors.  The objective is for the students to immerse themselves into our culture, be good ambassadors, and promote world peace through their involvement with many, many people and friends.
 
Luis or “Nando” as he prefers to be called is 16 years old.  Back home in Paraguay his    Dad, Edgar is bank employee, and his Mother, Catherine is a lawyer.  Nando has a brother, Victor is 13.  His family is also hosting a student from France.
 
Nando’s sport that he likes is basketball.  He also likes reading and likes to study about the environment, watch documentaries about the environment, taking care of natural resources.
He has traveled to Argentina and Brazil before coming to Texas and the USA.      
Nando dislikes dishonest people and show offs.  He does like to be challenged and to learn new things and family life.  He has already studied English for 12 years and is very good even though he is still learning some of our Texas sayings! 
 
Currently Nando is attending Kingwood High School.  After the school year he plans to take a month long Rotary approved bus tour which will take him coast to coast in the USA.  Then he will return to his home in Paraguay.
 
 
 
Nando, with Texas hat, shares information about Paraguay and his family. Job well done. great sense of humor.

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
A taste of independence
Modena, Italy, is known for fine things. The region is home to manufacturers of Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini automobiles. It’s where the artisan cheese Parmigiano-Reggiano is made, as well as Lambrusco wine. And it’s the only place in the world that produces traditional balsamic vinegar. The vinegar is a delicacy – sweeter and thicker than the kind usually found on restaurant tables, refined and aged in casks up to 25 years. The process has been handed down from generation to generation; the casks are often bequeathed to children or used to celebrate milestones such as weddings and...
