Banking and finance play a fundamental role in public policy and economic performance as well as in all forms of commerce and industry. They are crucial in determining whether society - from governments to individual consumers - succeeds in following an environmentally sustainable path. However, those working in the financial sector are largely unaware of the rationale and pressures for sustainable development and its bearing on their work, while those in the relevant research and policy areas commonly overlook how vital the financial sector is for progress. This site presents free downloads on the subject of sustainable finance and banking. Moreover, it presents information and order details for five books on this subject.

33. Welcome To PanEco
A Swiss foundation that supports projects on biodiversity and sustainability in Indonesia. It also works on social projects and intercultural acceptance.



Use it or lose it!
Founded in 1996 in Switzerland, the PanEco foundation is a Swiss-based international charity active in the field of environmental protection, management and education. PanEco provided the institutional umbrella for the personal support of projects which date back to the seventies and eighties.
Presently, PanEco's projects focus on Indonesia, one of the last strongholds of lowland tropical rainforest, harbouring more than 90 percent of the globe's animal and plant species. This forest is dwindling at the alarming speed of 15 million hectares per year and facing extinction within the next decades.
"Use it or lose it!" says "The Economist" (May 12, 2001), putting PanEco's strategy into a nutshell. Conservation alone is no longer the answer. Whether talking of rainforests, water or any other natural resource, today's challenge is to seek for ways of sustainable use.
PanEco, together with its partners, is giving its best to respond to it.
Regina Frey, president of the Board

out our work in environmental and sustainable development education and communicationby going to our client service's page on Education In sustainability.
Global sustainable development action has not progressed as many would have hoped. People frequently recite the word "sustainable" as though saying it often enough will solve our problems. We must recognize the First Law of Sustainability: population growth and/or growth in the rates of consumption of resources cannot be sustained (Bartlett, A.A. 1998. Reflections on sustainability, population growth, and the environment. Renewable Resources Journal 15(4): 6-23). The shift that must occur is one of bringing awareness and understanding to the people who can make the most difference, the average global citizen, in a context that decodes and de-mystifies the science behind potential solutions. Likewise, in our quickly advancing technology and information age traditional education must begin to focus upon encouraging students and citizens to "think outside the traditional box" if they are to fit into the technological society of tomorrow, be successful as professionals, and/or have the ability to strongly influence a sustainable future through the informed and effective use of science, mathematics, and technology in decision-making. Science for example, is a valuable tool to examine the understanding of our place in nature and the utilization of natural phenomena for human purposes. We can and should design education programs, however, that will also provide opportunities to place science in the proper perspective.

The Authors note that all of the points being raised by the industry were addressed in the original report, and that therefore they see no reason to reconsider their findings that government subsidization of the metal mining industry in Canada has increased substantially since 1995, while the sector's economic contribution has been in decline. Letter to Finance Minister Manley The Pembina Institute sent a letter today to Finance Minister Manley to consider implementing a number of policy recommendations in the 2003 Federal Budget to support a substantial growth of low-impact renewable energy supplies in Canada.

    News regarding SDRI:
    Following a year of review and negotiation, the Institute for Resources and Environment (IRE) and the Sustainable Development Research Institute (SDRI) have amalgamated giving rise to the new Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability (IRES) . This formal merger became effective September, 2002. SDRI has been renamed the Sustainable Development Research Initiative and remains as one of the major research foci within IRES. For the other research and the teaching activities within IRES, please see the IRES Web Site. Welcome to the website of the Sustainable Development Research Initiative (SDRI), located at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
    We are committed to undertake research on sustainable development that advances knowledge and contributes to the solution of real-world problems. Our research is:
    • Interdisciplinary (society's problems don't come in neat disciplinary packages)
    • Relevant to decision-makers and policy makers (since changes in behavior and policies are required to achieve sustainability), and
    • Based on the involvement of non-academic partners in the research process (since we need both the knowledge and the engagement of other partners to accomplish our research).

The quality of future human activity and development is increasingly seen as being dependent on maintaining this balance. This Sustainable Development homepage has been specifically designed to support the needs of the social partners at all levels in their activities to promote sustainable development from a practical company level to a policy level. In particular, it is hoped that employers and employees at small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) will benefit from the information and tools provided. The resources here may also assist public policy makers and non-governmental organisations working in the area.

The first to go online was a Networks database developed by Dr Yorick Benjamin [EDEN] the original version of which was mounted in November 1998. This provides links to and information about the growing number of network-orientated organisations working in the field of sustainable development. At present (September 2000), over 270 such organisations are listed, described and classified. Other resources include a Conferences directory , which provides a listing of conferences on sustainable development topics, a Tools Database with links to the growing number of practical sustainable development resources and software tools available on the internet and an Education and Training database with a register and search facility covering vocational education and training courses in the European Union and Norway on sustainable development.
