European companies dominate the rankings, accounting for 49 of the 100 spots. Eighteen companies from Asia made the list, along with 17 from the U.S., 12 from Canada, three from Latin America, and one, South Africa’s Standard Bank, from Africa. Though the U.S. didn’t account for a large share of the list, two companies earned spots in the top five. One is communications and technology giant Cisco Systems, which moved up 10 spots compared to the 2019 ranking thanks to the more than $25 billion in clean revenues it earned from “products with environmental core attributes.” The other is software company Autodesk, which rose 43 spots from the 2019 ranking because it now uses 99% renewable energy to run its cloud platforms, and those platforms also help to build green buildings and support better designs for a circular economy. … [Read more...] about These are the most sustainable corporations in the world

Hulu, whose streaming service of TV, movies, and originals has 12 million U.S. subscribers (compared with Netflix’s 54 million), is charging into the most exciting—and daunting—new frontier in the multibillion-dollar entertainment business: the effort to save cable TV before it collapses under its own bloat. Twenty percent of U.S. households are now cable-free, and “skinny bundles”—as the industry unfortunately calls them—attempt to offer people who gave up on cable (“cord cutters”) or have avoided it altogether (“cord nevers”) an alternative. AT&T’s new DirecTV Now service, which launched last November, notched 200,000 subscribers in its first month alone, and critics have lauded Sony’s PlayStation Vue for letting users stream to more than one device at a time.
