When SkyNRG was founded in 2009, sustainable aviation fuel was not yet allowed for use in commercial aircraft operations.
After the first flights in 2011, most of our clients were communicating about their commitments to fly on sustainable biofuels as a way to highlight their progressive and sustainable mindsets. Now it’s quite the other way around: companies have to explain themselves if they don’t have a travel policy that focuses on reducing CO2 emissions!

Along the shore of New York’s Upper Bay, the buildings of Industry City stand in a huddle that overlooks the Brooklyn Waterfront.
On the fifth floor, M Factory buzzes with the busy energy of an eyewear manufacturer.
This type of space is rare to see in the U.S., for a very specific reason: Most eyewear manufacturing is done in Italy or China, and always has been. This is also one of the reasons why what M Factory is doing in Brooklyn is so exciting: Crafting quality, affordable eyewear is not something typically done in the United States.

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 1, 2017 /3BL Media/ -- Climate change is one of the most significant and urgent issues facing business and society today. The science is clear, the impacts are serious and the need to act is essential.
If President Trump withdraws the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, he will be moving against the wishes of some of Minnesota’s biggest companies.
“We would be incredibly disappointed if the U.S. decides to withdraw from the agreement to which our country had committed,” Cargill CEO David MacLennan said Wednesday in a statement to the Star Tribune. “Signing the accord means being a champion for U.S. economic growth and job creation. Caring about sustainability of the planet is not only the right thing to do for people and the environment, it is also good business.”
In addition to enhancing the sustainability of our retail operations, we work with others to help address environmental and social issues in our product supply chains. In fact, research by The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) “shows that, with most products, the most significant environmental and social hotspots exist largely upstream from the manufacturer in their supply chain or downstream from consumer use and product disposal.” We aspire to enhance product supply chain sustainability in collaboration with suppliers, NGOs, customers and others.
