På norsk har man kun fått nyheten om at Blackrock investerte i Tomra i høst på dette forumet. Det var litt spesielt at den nyheten ble publisert i internasjonale medier akkurat samme dag som Finansavisen publiserte den første av flere artikler om Tomra-aksjen. I disse artiklene ble Tomra-aksjen betegnet som en skrekkaksje man burde holde seg langt unna, med henvisning til en analyse gjort av et uavhening amerikansk analysebyrå.

Dette er Tomras visjon (man finner også video med konsernsjefen ved å følge linken) :


RETHINK. REIMAGINE. RESOURCE.

The Resource Revolution

As a planet we are running to the end of our leash. The world population will increase by 30% over the next 40 years. An additional seventy million people are entering the middle class every year, increasing overall consumption levels. Global resources are under unprecedented pressure – we need a resource revolution.

Resource productivity must increase to ensure sustainable development. Over the next 40 years, 30% more people will need to be fed with, at best, today’s availability of farmland. Something needs to change.

Rethinking how we obtain, use, reuse and optimize the world’s resources is the right path at the right time. This is how the next revolution begins.

TOMRA's mission

TOMRA's ambition is to be a leader in the resource revolution by creating sensor-based solutions for optimal resource productivity. Providing smart solutions for optimizing our resources – sourcing them, using them, stewarding them, reclaiming them, recycling them and revitalizing them – is key to the resource revolution.

This is not new to us. TOMRA has been in this business for more than 40 years. We know that in order to move forward, we all need to rethink and rework how things have been in the past. Every day we’re focused on transforming how the world obtains, uses and reuses its resources.

In short we aim to help our customers obtain more, use less and reuse resources (better business) and make the planet more sustainable (better environment).

I dag smeller så BlackRock til med denne nyheten (også video fra Bloomberg hvis man følger linken under)! Dette er ekstremt gledelige nyheter om nettopp den "medisinen" fra finans en mer og mer forpint verden trenger, og ikke mer enn hva Norges superselskap Tomra Systems fortjener, for vil selvsagt komme til å bety veldig, veldig mye for Tomra og andre fremtidsrettede selskaper dette.

BlackRock Puts Climate at Center of $7 Trillion Strategy

CEO Fink wrote in an annual letter to corporate executives

Fink outlined a number of initiatives BlackRock will undertake


Larry Fink struck an urgent note in his annual letter to America’s corporate executives: Climate change will upend global finance sooner than they might think.

The BlackRock Inc. chief executive officer issued his gravest warning yet to business leaders on the climate crisis, saying it’s an issue each of them must face.

Protesters have been trailing Fink to work, speaking engagements and formal events, decrying BlackRock for inaction on global warming. Now the world’s largest asset manager is starting 2020 with a new, full-throated call to action.

Fink’s letter marked a turning point for BlackRock, which unveiled its own specific set of climate-related changes to its active and index-based investment processes.

“Climate change has become a defining factor in companies’ long-term prospects,” Fink wrote in his annual letter to corporate executives on Tuesday. “Awareness is rapidly changing, and I believe we are on the edge of a fundamental reshaping of finance.”

Fink is tackling the subject as asset managers come under greater pressure on sustainability. BlackRock has been moving toward a more public stance on climate, as activists and non-profit groups increasingly scrutinize the firm’s behavior and voting record around environmental issues.

Fink outlined a number of initiatives that BlackRock will undertake, including: making sustainability integral to portfolio construction and risk management; exiting investments that present a high sustainability-related risk; launching new investment products that screen fossil fuels; and strengthening the firm’s commitment to sustainability and transparency in its investment stewardship activities.

The company will exit both debt and equity investments in thermal coal producers in its active portfolios. The firm has about $1.8 trillion in active assets under management. It will also double its lineup of sustainable exchange-traded funds to about 150, and pressure index providers to create sustainable versions of their flagship indexes, according to a client note outlining the changes.
