Leading green bond firm threatens State Bank of India over support for Australian coal mine

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Amundi said it has warned the State Bank of India it will evict one of the lender’s green bonds from a flagship fund if it helps finance a coal mine in Australia that has met fierce opposition from environmental groups. Amundi, which holds the bond in its Amundi Planet Emerging Green One fund, said it had learnt this week that the Indian bank was considering financing the Carmichael thermal coal mine in Australia.Carmichael has drawn strong opposition from climate campaigners because of the potential carbon emissions that would be produced by the mine, at a time when many countries are exiting coal to help fight global warming.Under pressure from investors, a string of banks and insurers have already cut ties to the project, with the most recent being Lloyd’s insurer Apollo.Amundi’s Jean Jacques Barberis, Director of the Institutional and Corporate Clients division & ESG, said the asset manager had contacted the bank to voice its concern and followed up with a letter to the management on Thursday.The Amundi fund – the largest aimed at green bonds in the emerging markets – looks to invest in bonds that help fund environmentally friendly projects, but also looks at the issuer to make sure its other activities are “coherent”.“We consider SBI should not finance this project. It’s their decision, ultimately, but we’ve been extremely clear on the fact that, if they decide to do it, we would immediately disinvest,” said Barberis. Financing the mine would be in “total contradiction” to the SBI activities financed through its green bond, he added. “We have engaged SBI, asking them not to participate (in the loan)… and now we are waiting for their answers.”[Simon Jessop]More: Amundi gives bond warning to State Bank of India over coal mine Leading green bond firm threatens State Bank of India over support for Australian coal minelast_img read more

Neville to leave England women’s role in 2021

first_img Loading… “We will now discuss next steps with the British Olympic Association and the home nations with regard to Team GB Football and we are not in a position to make any further comment at this time.” After taking charge in January 2018, Neville quickly made a big impact as England won the high-profile SheBelieves Cup for the first time and pushed world champions the United States all the way before losing a pulsating World Cup semi-final 2-1 last year. However, England’s form has unravelled since, with a run of seven defeats in 11 games leaving even Neville himself questioning whether he was the right man to take them forward. Read Also: Barcelona stars linked with Newcastle amid new owners “As a result of the changes to the proposed tournament scheduling we will now be working to plan for a revised match calendar once it is safe and appropriate to do so,” said Neville. “I am looking forward to getting back to work with the team as soon as possible. We have a fantastic squad of players and there is plenty to work on as we look to progress as a team going into 2021.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Phil Neville will leave his role as England women’s manager when his contract expires next year, the Football Association confirmed on Friday. Phil Neville will leave his role as England women’s manager in 2021 The former Manchester United and England defender’s deal would have seen him take charge of the Lionesses’ European championship campaign on home soil next year. However, the reorganisation of the football calendar due to coronavirus means UEFA has now moved the women’s Euros to 2022. “Following UEFA’s decision to postpone the UEFA Women’s EURO to 2022, Phil Neville has confirmed he is committed to honouring the full term of his contract with The FA, which will see him leave the role in July 2021,” the FA said in a statement. Neville is also now unlikely to take charge of the Great Britain team at next year’s Olympics, with the FA keen for his successor to get tournament experience before the Euros. “In the best interests of the England Women’s team, both parties were in agreement that our shared priority was to ensure the Lionesses have continuity of coaching going into the home EURO and looking towards the 2023 FIFA World Cup,” said the FA’s director of women’s football Sue Campbell.center_img Promoted ContentEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

Bengals first-round pick Jonah Williams (shoulder surgery) likely out for 2019 season

first_imgWilliams, who was selected 11th overall by Cincinnati in this year’s NFL Draft, was expected to take over for Cordy Glenn. He was taking first-team reps before he was sidelined by the injury.Williams is expected to make a full recovery. According to the Bengals, the injury and surgery likely mean Williams won’t play this season.“We look forward to Jonah being a major contributor in the future, and know that he won’t let this injury deter him from still being an important part of this team,” coach Zac Taylor said, via the team’s website. “We’re confident in our offensive line personnel as we head into training camp, and we believe they can do their part in helping this team achieve its goals.” Related News There is a good chance the Bengals’ top 2019 draft pick won’t play this season.Left tackle Jonah Williams underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, meaning he won’t take over as the starter as the team had hoped. A.J. Green hopeful to stay with Bengals ‘a couple more years’ Tyreek Hill, NFL to have meeting this week, report says Glenn was moved to guard to make room for Williams but now is expected to shift back to left tackle. It’s unclear who will take over at left guard, but Christian Westerman has been taking first-team reps in that position the past few weeks. John Jerry is another option.Clint Boling was the Bengals’ left guard last year but has been absent from offseason activities with an unknown ailment. The severity of the issue and Boling’s timetable to return are unknown.Williams’ injury adds to the Bengals’ unfortunate trend of troubles with first-round picks from the past few years.
