Doctors, health care providers and insurers can actually join hands with non-profit organisations that work on cancer, heart ailments and lung diseases to chart out a plan for good quality of life for employees.

ENIL’s performance was better than our expectations (EBITDA loss of Rs260mn versus our estimate of Rs644mn) on the back of better cost control. While targeted savings of Rs1bn in FY21E is noteworthy, we believe fixed cost absorption will continue to remain a challenge in a weak demand environment (inventory utilization for 35 legacy/17 batch 1/21batch 2 stations is expected to be 45%/15%/10% in FY21E).

Some international governments already plan to go further. In the Netherlands, where natural gas is even more common than it is in the U.S., the country plans to be completely gas-free by 2050. … [Read more...] about What will it take for cities to get rid of natural gas?
