  1. 1. IIM Calcutta Environment Management for the Corporate Sector - New Directions Program Director: Prof. Bhaskar Chakrabarti January 19-20, 2007 At IIMC Campus, Joka Fees: Rs. 10,000 INR Program Content: There is now a major shift in the interactions between corporations and the natural environment. Environment was mostly a legal responsibility for corporate houses until this decade; but businesses currently look at environmental issues as a source of competitive advantage and as a part of standard business practice. Top management has begun to recognize the importance of environment to the corporations’ survival and growth. Government regulators and environmental groups are increasingly trying to work with the corporate sector to solve environmental problems. This two-day workshop will equip managers with tools and concepts to understand the implications of domestic and international environmental policies, and will help them to integrate environmental considerations with business performance. Topics to be covered include the current issues in the international debate of sustainability, standardization of environmental policies, environmental issues in business and trade, green corporate strategies, collaborations between firms, government, and environmental groups, measurement of environmental performance, and ISO 14000. Mail your queries to Prof. Bhaskar Chakrabarti : [email_address] For details, contact: - The Manager (MDP) , Indian Institute of Management, Diamond Harbour Road, Joka, Kolkata - 700104 Phone : 24670799/6861/ 24678300-04 Fax : 2467-7851 Email: [email_address] Refer: CoolAvenues.com MDP
  2. 2. <ul><li>The Socialist Republic of Vietnam, with its remarkable variety of plants and animals, is one of the world's most biologically diverse countries. Vietnam's distinctive climate and geography (ranging from mountainous highlands to fertile marsh lands) provide a wide range of habitats for its unique native species. </li></ul><ul><li>The country, already home to more than 12,000 species of plants and 7,000 species of animals, is discovering new species all the time. The muntjac and saola, 2 large mammals, are just 2 examples of the many species which have been discovered in Vietnam during the past 10 years. Recognizing the significance of the country's biodiversity, the government of Vietnam has set aside large portions of the country as protected areas, including national parks and nature reserves. But, in spite of these efforts, many habitats and their associated flora and fauna, are being threatened. Human activity negatively impacts biodiversity The rapid development of the country has narrowed or wiped out important, but non-protected areas; forest fires do irreparable damage to the landscape; illegal wildlife poaching (and trade) exploit delicate species; and pollution of the environment (from a variety of sources) have all taken their toll on Vietnam's biodiversity. Marine areas severely affected During the past 50 years, 96% of Vietnam's coral reefs have been seriously damaged, 80% of the total area of mangroves has been decimated, and many species of wildlife have been lost forever.

  3. 3. <ul><li>What do the initials WWF stand for? Answer... Back in 1961 when it was founded, WWF stood for the &quot;World Wildlife Fund&quot;. However, as the organization grew over the 70s and into the 80s, WWF began to expand its work to conserve the environment as a whole (reflecting the interdependence of all living things), rather than focusing on selected species in isolation. So although we continued to use our well-known initials, our legal name became &quot;WWF-World Wide Fund For Nature&quot; (formerly World Wildlife Fund - except in North America where the old name was retained). More and more, however, to avoid confusion and mixed messages across borders and languages, WWF is known as simply &quot;WWF, the global conservation organization.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>myWWF Sign in  |  Sign up  |  Help </li></ul><ul><li>About WWF </li></ul><ul><li>Take Action! </li></ul><ul><li>News & Facts </li></ul><ul><li>Need Help? </li></ul><ul><li>search </li></ul><ul><li>Home > About WWF > What We Do > Climate Change > The Problem > What's the cause? > Answer the Sceptics </li></ul><ul><li>What's the cause? </li></ul><ul><li>Culprit Coal </li></ul><ul><li>Main polluters </li></ul><ul><li>Wasting energy </li></ul><ul><li>Is it too late? </li></ul><ul><li>Answer the Sceptics </li></ul><ul><li>How to answer the claims of a Climate Change Sceptic </li></ul><ul><li>From Grist Magazine... </li></ul><ul><li>Despite all the evidence some people still aren't convinced about Climate Change. © iStockphoto/Elena Slastnova </li></ul><ul><li>About Grist Magazine </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Let's face it: reading environmental journalism too often feels like eating your vegetables. Boiled. With no butter. But at Grist, we believe that news about green issues and sustainable living doesn't have to be predictable, demoralizing, or dull. We butter the vegetables! And add salt! And strain metaphors! We exist to tell the untold stories, spotlight trends before they become trendy, and engage the apathetic. We're fiercely independent in our coverage; we throw brickbats when they're needed and bestow kudos when they're warranted. And while we take our work seriously, we don't take ourselves seriously, because of the many things this planet is running out of, sanctimonious tree-huggers ain't one of them. Grist is based in the Emerald City of Seattle, in the Evergreen State of Washington (see the green theme?), with contributors scattered the world 'round. We are a nonprofit organization funded by foundation grants, reader contributions, and just a touch of advertising. Our website and email services are free - and worth every penny. Grist: it's gloom and doom with a sense of humor. So laugh now -- or the planet gets it.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Perhaps you have a friend, a work colleague or even a family member who still isn’t convinced about Climate Change?
