Bonds, climate-smart agriculture and the not-so-green Olympics: feature round-up



Just in case you missed them, here’s a rundown of the features published on Blue & Green Tomorrow April 16–22.

Kicking off the week on Monday, we published an infographic to show renewable energy in Europe, created by Ben Willers.

Bill Meredith, head of agriculture at the University of Lincoln, described how the agriculture industry is responding to environmental challenges.

As part of our “What is…” series, we answered, “What is a bond?” and “What is ethical investment?”, with IFA Julian Parrott combining the two and looking at ethical bond investment.

Continuing the bond theme, Alex Blackburne spoke with Bryn Jones, manager of the Rathbone Ethical Bond Fund, about the advantages of investing in this way.

Paul West of the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment, tackled humankind’s toughest question: How do we sustainably feed an ever-increasing population?.

On Saturday, Alex Blackburne came to the conclusion that this year’s Olympic Games are most certainly not the “greenest ever, after looking at the event’s Carbon Footprint Study.

We published our first ever quote bank at the weekend, too – a collection of our favourite quotes from the past week.

And finally, on Sunday, solar array owner Gavin Smith described his experiences with the feed-in-tariff scheme and its significant impact on his decision to invest.
