first_imgSweden’s seventh national pension fund AP7 has put six energy companies on a watch for potential exclusion from its portfolio on climate change grounds, a spokesman confirmed to IPE.The six companies are American Energy, Exxon Mobil, Gazprom, Southern Company, Transcanada and Westar Energy.AP7’s holdings in these companies amount to around €300m, according to the spokesman.The backdrop to the move is the international agreement on climate change reached at the UN Conference of Parties (COP21) in Paris last year, which the spokesman said was “a game-changer” and would have consequences for several years ahead. “With our norms-based approach, we thought this is exactly the kind of international, UN-type of agreement we work with,” he said. The fund decided to screen its global equity portfolio, which comprises holdings in more than 2,500 companies, to try to define the worst performers in terms of their contribution to achieving the global-warming mitigation goal set out in the Paris Agreement on climate change.The screening exercise was carried out this month.The six aforementioned companies are the first ones the buffer fund identified that could be said to “work actively” against the Paris Agreement, according to the spokesman.AP7 has notified the companies that it could blacklist them if the fund does not obtain information “that could contradict our impression”, he said.The companies will have six months to get back to the pension fund, after which it will make a decision.Asked for further information about the screening process, the spokesman said it considered whether certain aspects of a company’s business were aligned with the maximum 2-degree warming target in the Paris Agreement, or whether companies could be seen as actively obstructing or inhibiting the implementation of the agreement at national level – via lobbying, for example.AP7 started blacklisting companies on the grounds of norms violations – for human rights, labour and/or environmental reasons, or corruption – around 16 years ago, and, as at the end of June 2016, 55 companies were on its list, according to the spokesman. Sweden’s second national pensions buffer fund, AP2, recently said it divested 10 more of the stocks it holds on the grounds of financial climate risk.last_img read more

first_img The then new A wing of Townsville General Hospital in 1954, three years after its official opening. Historical Picture: State Library of Queensland “The building has gorgeous lines in it and beautiful curves in the balconies, we really wanted to make sure that was incorporated rather than try and work against it,” Ms Hart said.“We are on the top floor and were one of the first to build in that column, so we were able to make some modifications to the original plans; we’ve got an extra 30cm of ceiling than any of the other apartments because we could go up into the roof.” “All the doors are extra high and there’s internal sliding doors so that we’re not taking up extra floor space.” “Because it’s the penthouse it rises above the tower behind it and it’s the only level that can see right up over the hill, over Queens Gardens, and right up to Palm Island.”“It’s absolutely stunning like seriously the most incredible view — it’s amazing.” The couple also meticulously designed their perfect master-bedroom, which served as an escape from their busy lives as event producers and provided them with ample privacy when they wanted time away from their teenage children. “We really wanted a master-bedroom so that when we closed the door, we were in another world.”“We created a really incredible triple bathroom with a hidden sliding door, and you can lie in the bath and see Magnetic Island.”“There’s a four by four walk in wardrobe with custom built cabinetry, shoe draws, and a makeup cabinet.”RELATED: Contemporary classic with views to cherish With a family kitchen rivalling the set of MasterChef, it features top of the range appliances with an invisible range hood which rises from the stone bench. “We entertained quite a bit so we wanted a kitchen that was really beautiful and functional; we put a hidden butler’s pantry in behind a curved door that opens automatically, and then we did a triple kitchen.”“So we have the butler’s pantry, back wall, middle prep bench with a cook top, and then another space for breakfast eating and more prep on top of a massive dining area.”The Fulton Gardens complex is located in North Ward, and overlooks The Strand, featuring a double pool, gym and two acres of heritage listed gardens. Labor’s policies could deter Townsville investors leaving renters to foot the bill Breathtaking 270 degree views of Castle Hill, Magnetic Island and beyond will never be at risk of being built out, and the balcony spans the width of the apartment.“You’ll never get a building that’s made of that structural quality; with the hallways that big and the space so vast, because it was obviously made as an industrial property,” Ms Hart said.center_img The three-bedroom apartment features a bathroom for every bedroom, and a large living space for family time. It also includes a private office on the ground floor of the complex with connection to NBN, making it perfect for those wanting to work from home or operate a small team of staff.“There’s a fully kitted out office on the ground floor with private entry — so if you work for yourself or if you work from home or have staff that works really well.”“We work for ourselves so it was really-nice to be able to go downstairs to work.” Townsville’s cheapest suburbs More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020 No expense has been spared in complimenting the original art deco style of 604/53 Gregory Street.
