Sustainable Finance to Boost the Digital & Green Transition [Video]

European SDG Roundtable co-organized with the United Nations Global Compact in the framework of the European SDG Summit 2021.Sustainable finance covers a wide range of financial products and services, and it is based on three main pillars, namely investment, banking and insurance products. To meet the growing demand, new financial and evaluation tools, such as sustainability bonds, emission trading schemes and financial impact measurement instruments have been introduced. At the same time, thematic investment funds are starting to boost, with renewable energy, climate adaptation and sustainable infrastructure being the areas with the highest interest.The widening use of AI and the active engagement of financial institutions in supporting social inclusion and green transition will shape the debate in the upcoming years. These trends, together with increased transparency towards retail investors and widespread awareness on the SDGs, are expected to fuel a market’s growth. This sessions provided some examples of companies and stakeholders that are already working in this direction.

Episode 030 | Matthew Tokarik: Geothermal will be a part of our Green Future [Video]

Source:https://www.podbean.com/eau/pb-7gssv-110d1b9In this episode our Twenty First Century Cleantech contributor, Connor Reed, talks with Matthew Tokarik, President of Subterra Renewables, a renewable energy developer who designs, builds, owns, and operates geothermal heating and cooling systems across North America, with the goal of significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately reaching Net-Zero building operation. Matt has previous experience working as a Building Energy Consultant developing whole building energy models, conducting energy audits, and creating carbon reduction strategies for new and existing buildings and building portfolios. He is also a Sessional Instructor at Ryerson University, where he leads courses and seminars in sustainability, building science, and energy modeling.In this episode we talk about the world of geothermal heating and cooling, and why it’s going to be one of the fastest growing industries in the green building space over the next few decades.I hope you enjoy the conversation!                                            ——————–You can read more about this podcast in the podcast’s Show Notes. Please Support this Podcast: The Twenty First Century Imperative podcast relies entirely on user support.

Oxygen Not Included #38 – Nuclear Rocket – Accept Every Dupe Challenge [Video]

I challenge myself to accept every duplicant (up to 100) in the new Solar Swamped Oxygen Not Included Update. The rules- each time the portal is ready accept a dupe (until 100 dupes)- never accept a care package (until 100 dupes)- try not to lose any dupes- I may go over 100 dupes if the lag isn’t too badIn this episode:0:00 Cleaning the pipes11:26 Nuclear power review16:22 Nuclear rocket launch17:38 Interplanetary launchers37:30 Last bits of digging1:03:15 Jaxon lives in a rocket1:12:47 ZOOM OUT1:16:00 Ice world explorationThank you to everyone who donated to the charity event. $1000 USD was raised for the World Food Program.

The full patch notes are listed below, but here are a few of the most notable changes:Liquids and gasses can now be piped directly in-to and out-of Spacefarer Module interiors. This also means that fluids can be vented into space if a pipe is active while the rocket is in flight. This feature is available in all newly built Spacefarer Modules. The new Wall Toilet building allows Duplicants to flush their waste directly into the world behind the toilet seat. No outbound plumbing required! This building must be built against a wall and requires clear space (or the vacuum of space) behind the wall to vent to.The Ladder Bed is a tileable sleeping arrangement with a low quality ladder attached to the front. Several beds can be stacked together to create a vertical dormitory in tight spaces. Duplicants don’t appreciate others using the ladder while they’re trying to sleep though.Stranded rockets can now be evacuated using the “ABANDON SHIP” sequence. This will cause the rocket to explode. Any Duplicants on board will be launched towards the nearest discovered asteroid in a high speed Escape Pod. Some of the resources aboard will follow in the form of Spacecraft Debris.FeaturesSpaced Out! onlyRockets can now be self-destructed via the “ABANDON SHIP” UI button. Any Duplicants on board will be blasted towards the closest planetoid in an escape pod, along with a portion of the materials from the rocket.Added Wall Toilet buildingAdded a Ladder Bed buildingAdded Rocket Interior Ports to allow for directly piping gas and liquid into the rocket interior. Existing rockets will need to be rebuilt to make use of these. Gasses and Liquids can be vented to space using rocket interior ports while the rocket is in space.Changes & ImprovementsDuplicants wearing suits are once again able to use hand sanitizer stations/sinks.Resized Hand Sanitizer building from 2×3 to 1×3 and updated art accordingly.The Vending Machine is now demolishable by Duplicants with the Demolition skill.Refrigerators ignore small masses when deciding to enter energy saver mode.Clarified language in fabricator side screen’s “no discovered recipes” text.Spaced Out! OnlyUpdated Starmap “half revealed hex” art.Updated Temporal Tear Opener animations to include radbolt port coverUpdated the starmap’s temporal tear opening animation.Duplicants now play the construction multitool animation when emptying Interplanetary Payloads.Adjusted the way ships/payloads on the starmap are positioned when there are lots in the same hex.Some artifacts now include additional lore text when viewed at the Artifact Analysis Station.Refrigerator now cools food while rocket control restrictions are applied.Duplicants are now required to exit through the spacecraft door when deploying to Trailblazer modules.Increase the number of background orbiting objects while a rocket is at a Space POI.Updated Trailblazer Lander’s descent animations.Trailblazer Lander now visible on clustermap during deploy/landingAdded more artifact lore.Added tooltips to empty & undiscovered space map spaces.SoundAdded Trailblazer Lander’s landing sound.Added rocket location sensor sound.Added Starmap rocket launching and landing sound.Added music stinger and fx sound to the Artifact Analyzed popup menu.Added reverb effects to spacefarer module interiors.
