Articles you may have missed: January 4-10



These are the articles that have attracted the most interest on our site in the past week, and we’re republishing the links here to ensure you don’t miss out.

The Met Office’s 2013 forecast, in which the organisation predicted that temperatures this year would break records, was the most-read article on Blue & Green Tomorrow in the last seven days.

The United Nations General Assembly’s recognition of sustainable tourism as hugely influential in the battles against poverty and environmental protection was also popular.

Earlier this week, the Co-operative Bank admitted it had fallen short of the high standards its customers expect, after being fined £113,300 by the Financial Services Authority for delaying payment protection insurance complaints.

A report by Energy Transition outlined how co-operatives in Germany were driving forward the country’s renewable energy efforts, while an article by Mother Jones revealed startling links between increases in violent crime and lead pollution.

An article about a half-baked tweet from Rupert Murdoch, in which the media mogul gave his backing to a Wall Street Journal article that claims the world is “growing greener”, proved a popular feature among our readers and generated significant interest on Twitter.

We also republished a blog post by Douglas Hull of Charity Finance Group, who wrote about how now, more than ever, charities are able to use their clout as investors to achieve their charitable goals.

Meanwhile, we also had a good response rate to Profit Through Ethics director Michael Solomon’s encouraging outlook on a new ethical age of business.

A number of people flicked through our most recent in-depth report, The Guide to Responsible Media 2012, while others opted to delve further back in our archive, to read The Guide to Sustainable Banking 2012 and The Guide to Sustainable Tourism 2012.
