McDonald’s going green: burger chain sets 2050 net-zero target

Published

on

The world’s biggest fast-food chain has pledged to cut global greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050

McDonald’s Corporation set the target on Monday which will include the beef in its burgers to the light bulbs in its restaurants.

The burger chain also said it was working with the nonprofit Science Based Targets initiative to revamp its existing climate change targets.

The initiative aims to lower absolute emissions by about a third for both its suppliers and its nearly 40,000 company-run and franchised restaurants around the world by 2030.

“We’re trying to send a signal to our partners, to our investors, to our suppliers, to other brands in the global community, to policymakers, that we share that vision for 2050,”

McDonald’s told Reuters.

United Nations scientists say the world’s net emissions must fall to zero by 2050 to limit the rise in global temperatures to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius versus pre-industrial levels.

Wall Street smashed by months of volatility

Published

on

Wall Street neared bear market territory on Friday as stocks fell sharply to end the week with the Dow down more than 800 points.

The sell-off was driven by fears of a deeper recession, as data showed that manufacturing activity contracted for the fourth straight month.

The Dow is now down 20% from its peak in February, and if it falls below 19,000 it will officially enter bear market territory.

While some analysts believe that the market is overreacting to the latest data, others say that the sell-off is justified given the deteriorating economic conditions.

It remains to be seen whether the market can recover from this latest setback, but one thing is clear: Wall Street is in for a volatile ride in the weeks and months ahead.

The Dow was down more than 800 points, or 3.2%, at 24,608. The S&P 500 was down 3% at 2,754, and the Nasdaq Composite was down 2.8% at 7,433.

All three indexes are now down more than 20% from their all-time highs set in late September. The sell-off was driven by fears of a deeper recession as the yield on the 10-year Treasury fell below 1.6%.

The market has been deeply volatile in recent weeks on fears that the coronavirus outbreak will lead to a slowdown in global economic growth. Friday’s sell-off suggests that those fears are still very much present.

With the price of SHIB currently sitting at $0.0016 per coin, it will be interesting to see how these anonymous investors choose to cash out their profits.
