Former UN chief: A lack of political will is holding back climate goal achievements

A lack of political will is holding the world back from achieving international climate goals, Ban Ki-moon, the former United Nations secretary general, said Thursday. Ban said he urged political leaders to think as globally as possible. “We are now seeing many national leaders, but we don’t see many global leaders…(but) all the changes we are now seeing are global, requiring global solutions,” Ban told CNBC at the Ecosperity Conference in Singapore. “It’s a very serious phenomenon that will c

Former UN chief: A lack of political will is holding back climate goal achievements

A lack of political will is holding the world back from achieving international climate goals, Ban Ki-moon, the former United Nations secretary general, said Thursday.

Ban said he is “deeply concerned” by the 2017 decision of President Donald Trump’s administration to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate deal, but he was hopeful that the country will reconsider its decision after Trump steps down.

“I am convinced that — whenever it may happen — after President Trump leaves the White House, I’m sure that his successor will have to come back and join this Paris climate agreement if they really want to demonstrate their global leadership,” said Ban, who is now president and chair at the Global Green Growth Institute, an inter-governmental organization.

Ban said he urged political leaders to think as globally as possible.

“We are now seeing many national leaders, but we don’t see many global leaders…(but) all the changes we are now seeing are global, requiring global solutions,” Ban told CNBC at the Ecosperity Conference in Singapore.

On the issue of multilateral cooperation, Ban said he was “deeply concerned.”

“It’s a very serious phenomenon that will cause (the) breaking down (of) all this unity and solidarity among world leaders particularly political leaders,” he said.

Even though there are conflicts now and then, international organizations such as the UN have prevented their escalation through mediation, peacekeeping operations and political negotiation, he said.

“I sincerely hope that those countries, particularly the United States and the European Union, who benefited most from this multinationalism should stand at the front and at the center to lead multilateralism, ” said Ban.

Retired Navy SEAL: Use this 5-step strategy to achieve any goal

Retired Navy SEAL David Goggins has competed in more than 60 ultra-marathons, triathlons and ultra-triathlons, and has won a handful of them. He’s also a former Guinness World Record holder for completing 4,030 pull-ups in 17 hours. To get into the Navy, Goggins first had to meet basic physical fitness requirements and shed 106 pounds. He did that in two months and then went on to become the only member of the U.S. armed forces ever to complete training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger and Air Force

But the 44-year-old hasn’t always been fit. Before he decided he wanted to join the SEALs, he weighed 297 pounds and spent most afternoons on the couch with “a box of mini donuts and a chocolate milkshake,” he tells CNBC Make It.

To get into the Navy, Goggins first had to meet basic physical fitness requirements and shed 106 pounds. He did that in two months and then went on to become the only member of the U.S. armed forces ever to complete training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger and Air Force Tactical Air Controller.

Apple convinced Foxconn to use clean energy to manufacture iPhones

Apple has convinced its top manufacturing partner, Foxconn, and its primary chip manufacturer, TSMC, to commit to powering their operations making Apple products with renewable energy, the company announced Thursday. “A few years ago we said we wanted to start working on supplier clean energy, and our goal would be 4 gigawatts of new clean energy projects up and running by 2020.

Apple convinced Foxconn to use clean energy to manufacture iPhones

Apple has convinced its top manufacturing partner, Foxconn, and its primary chip manufacturer, TSMC, to commit to powering their operations making Apple products with renewable energy, the company announced Thursday.

The two manufacturing giants are part of a new batch of 15 suppliers which have committed to run production for Apple products using clean energy, bringing the total number to 44.

The milestone is another sign that Apple is positioning itself as the greenest big tech company as rivals like Amazon get pummeled for not having a comprehensive climate change strategy. In a filing earlier this year, Apple said that it considers climate change a risk that could disrupt the company’s operations and that investing in renewable energy makes good business sense for Apple.

“A few years ago we said we wanted to start working on supplier clean energy, and our goal would be 4 gigawatts of new clean energy projects up and running by 2020. We’re still on track to meet that goal,” Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives told CNBC in an interview.

Apple’s own facilities, including offices, stores and data centers, currently run on renewable energy and have since 2018. But manufacturing comprises 74% of Apple’s carbon footprint, and it’s carried out by independent supplier companies who own and operate their own factories.

“Our goal in working with these suppliers is to help them do this economically, this is their full-time business, so this can be done in a way that can make good business sense,” Jackson said.

“I think everyone wants to know that doesn’t impact their bottom line, so we have worked with them, because they are energy intensive, especially TSMC, to find ways they felt comfortable making the commitment,” she continued.

Currently, Apple’s suppliers are buying or generating 1.9 gigawatts of renewable energy, and will have over 5 gigawatts operational by 2020, exceeding its previously announced goal, Apple said.

“Four gigawatts is about a third of our energy use, so as we pass 5, we’re moving towards a place where we can say almost half of our supply chain is committed to Apple production being 100% renewable,” Jackson said.

In 2016 and 2017 Apple issued $2.5 billion in “green bonds,” which raise funds earmarked specifically for projects that have a positive environmental or social impact. Those funds have been completely spent. The funds went to 40 different projects, including solar panel installations, wind installations, new recycled aluminum alloys, and environmentally friendly landscaping at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Apple didn’t issue an additional green bond in 2018 and Jackson didn’t say whether the company planned to issue another.

“What we learned is that there is a robust market of people who want to go invest and subscribe to green bonds. What we thought we brought to the market was not only the offering, but also the reporting we have done,” Jackson said, speaking about Apple’s detailed disclosures about how the money was spent.

She continued: “There’s a hunger to invest in the clean energy economy, both for principled reasons, and for economic reasons, and this gives a business a way to do that.”

The full list of new Apple suppliers committing to using renewable power is below:

As Lyft goes public, profitability is a long-term goal, not a near-term likelihood

Uber, which is expected to go public next month, still commands greater market share than Lyft. Lyft is far behind Uber when it comes to coverage. In 2018, its geographic expansion focused on coverage in 95 percent of the U.S., and some new locations in Canada, filings ahead of its IPO disclosed. Lyft has been slower to diversify, although it has invested in other modes of transit as well. It bought Motivate in 2018, a bike-sharing company after Uber bought Jump, for example.

As Lyft goes public, profitability is a long-term goal, not a near-term likelihood

Uber, which is expected to go public next month, still commands greater market share than Lyft.

It offers rides on-demand in 65 countries and has a stake in Didi and Careem, which operate in Asia and the Middle East and North Africa, respectively.

Lyft is far behind Uber when it comes to coverage. In 2018, its geographic expansion focused on coverage in 95 percent of the U.S., and some new locations in Canada, filings ahead of its IPO disclosed.

Uber was also the first ride-hailing company to expand into services like food delivery and bike-sharing (via its acquisition of Jump in April 2018) which provide it with different revenue streams.

Lyft has been slower to diversify, although it has invested in other modes of transit as well. It bought Motivate in 2018, a bike-sharing company after Uber bought Jump, for example. It also offers scooters to riders looking for options beyond the car.

Neuroscience: Why you should read like a writer—even if you’re not one

Most people have one goal in mind when reading a book: To download as much information in the least amount of time possible. And yet, as they’re reading, they’ll often start and stop, or Google certain concepts and words they don’t understand. My goal for 2019, for example, is to learn how to read, write and speak in French.

Neuroscience: Why you should read like a writer—even if you're not one

Most people have one goal in mind when reading a book: To download as much information in the least amount of time possible.

And yet, as they’re reading, they’ll often start and stop, or Google certain concepts and words they don’t understand. Some will get sidetracked and dive into studies or events referenced in the book or go back and reread chapters multiple times until they “get it.”

But there’s immense power in partially — and not entirely — understanding the idea behind a book.

My goal for 2019, for example, is to learn how to read, write and speak in French. A friend recommended I start by reading children’s books in French. I ended up not understanding 90 percent of the words, but I still had a strong grasp of the idea. (Admittedly, the pictures helped.)

The process went something like this:

It can be incredibly frustrating to read a book that you don’t quite understand, but so badly want to. Instead of fumbling through a dictionary, read the book from start to finish at least once to get the general message. It’ll be easier to understand when you reread it the second time.

Fitness guru Kayla Itsines: How to set goals and actually meet them

“It’s more breaking down the goal,” Itsines tells CNBC Make It. So, if I’m going to go to the gym, it’s like, okay, where’s the gym? “Saying, ‘I’m going to work out every day’ is not a goal,’ Itsines says. You actually really have to think about your goals and how you set them, [in] everything, in business.” Have another goal set so you don’t lose momentum.

Fitness guru Kayla Itsines: How to set goals and actually meet them

Kayla Itsines knows a thing or two about smashing goals. She built a fitness empire from the ground up, turning her massive social media following and her experience as a personal trainer into Sweat, a lucrative fitness business that is raking in millions.

But for many, goal-setting — whether it be for your business or your body — can be a daunting task and can often end in disappointment.

Itsines says she has a strategy that actually yields results. And it isn’t about actually setting the goal, she says.

“It’s more breaking down the goal,” Itsines tells CNBC Make It.

“You set a goal, but you break down the goal. So, if I’m going to go to the gym, it’s like, okay, where’s the gym? How long does it take to get there? How much does it cost? Who are you going with? Who’s going to motivate you? When you feel unmotivated, who’s going to come with you?

“These are things you need to think about when you say, ‘I’m going to go to the gym.'”

The approach, Itsines explains, is about being realistic. “Put your goal, and then you need to think about all the things that surrounds that goal and is it actually something that you can do?”

Setting realistic goals is key to following through with the them, she says. Because if the goal is too overwhelming, and you “miss two days a week or three days a week, then you become unmotivated and then your whole goal thing goes out the window,” she says.

You need to be specific and detailed-oriented with your goal-setting.

“Saying, ‘I’m going to work out every day’ is not a goal,’ Itsines says. “That’s not a thing. Because you haven’t put it in your calendar, you haven’t worked out where you’re going to work out.”

Itsines uses the same goal-setting strategy for her business.

Itsines and her fiance, Tobi Pearce, leveraged social media to market personal training sessions and bootcamp classes, and in early 2014 they launched an e-book featuring Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide program, which launched the now ubiquitous Instagram hastag #BBG (it has 7.1 million posts and counting). Since then, the program has evolved into a monthly membership app called Sweat, which, as of June, was on-track to pull in $77 million for 2018, TechCrunch reported.

But Itsines recalls that when starting out as a personal trainer, she too set vague and lofty goals that didn’t work.

“I did that. I said, okay, I’m going to have this many clients. Like, that’s really [dumb], ” she says. “Where am I going to fit them? What am I going to do with them? How do I make a session that is going to be fun for everyone? If I have the same client twice in that week, do I have to change the session around?

“You have to think. You actually really have to think about your goals and how you set them, [in] everything, in business.”

And the process doesn’t end when you reach your goals. Have another goal set so you don’t lose momentum.

“You need to set goals so if there’s a mountain, if you get to the top of the mountain, there’s got to be another mountain you want to climb,” Itsines says. “You can’t just go to the bottom of the mountain and sit there and do nothing.”

Oh, and it’s completely free.

The way it works is, as indicated in the name, pretty simple: Set a goal that improves your well-being and work-life balance. Write it down on the downloadable worksheet (it can be customized to fit any style or environment you’d like — the point is to stay hyperfocused on one goal at a time and see it through to fruition.)

At Google, it’s the manager’s job to check in regularly and make sure individuals adhere to their goals. It’s also encouraged that employees share their goals with other team members (and those outside of work) as a way to ensure that they’re being held accountable.

CBS reaches its 8 million streaming subscribers goal two years early

CBS now has 8 million streaming subscribers, the company announced in its fourth quarter 2018 earnings report Thursday.

At a time where numerous media companies are trying to get into the streaming business and ramp up their original direct-to-consumer content, CBS’ disclosure shows it has already been able to gain some traction. The company said it hit the landmark two years ahead of schedule. The subscriber number accounts for consumers of both CBS All Access and Showtime.

CBS said its next goal is to reach 25 million domestic subscribers from these streaming services by 2022. That’s up from its previous goal of 16 million domestic subscribers in the same time frame.

Despite passing its subscriber goal early, CBS was down about 3 percent after hours after its results fell short of analyst expectations. The company reported earnings per share of $1.50 per share ex-items compared to $1.52 per share analysts were expecting. CBS reported revenue of $4.02 billion compared to $4.13 billion expected.

Networks have been making big plays to get into the streaming space to rival tech giants like Netflix and Amazon. Comcast’s NBCUniversal announced in January it plans to roll out a free, ad-supported service in the first quarter of 2020. And Disney, which owns ABC, is planning to launch its own streaming service in late 2019. Even Apple is setting its sights on a streaming launch as early as April that will include original content for free on Apple devices, CNBC reported earlier this week.

Disclosure: NBCUniversal is the parent company of CNBC.
