UN Global Compact Board approves new strategy to scale up business ambition and action to achieve the SDGs and Paris Agreement on Climate ChangeNew York, NY, Jan. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UNITED NATIONS, New York, 19 January 2021 — UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, Chair of the Board of the UN Global Compact, today announced a new three-year strategic plan to increase and accelerate corporate sustainability and principled business. "The United Nations Global Compact is uniquely positioned to support companies on their journey to align their practices to a sustainable and inclusive future. The Ten Principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption offer a blueprint for businesses seeking to be part of the collective effort to build back stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said. “Now is the time to scale up the global business community’s contributions to the 2030 Agenda and the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change. That is the overarching goal of the Global Compact’s strategic plan for 2021 through 2023.” Sanda Ojiambo, CEO & Executive Director, UN Global Compact said: “More must be done by businesses globally to accelerate corporate sustainability and responsible business practice. Our strategy and ambition are to grow and take our participants on a journey of demonstrated continuous improvement in the impact that they create.” With the pandemic and ongoing climate crisis undoing much of the progress the world has achieved since adopting the SDGs in 2015, the new UN Global Compact strategy calls on the global business community to increase its contribution to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement. The strategy outlines five key shifts to boost business action and impact: Accountable companies: UN Global Compact will strive to move its participant companies faster and farther than others in demonstrating progress on corporate sustainability and responsible business practices through specific, measurable targets within an enhanced reporting framework.Balanced growth of local and regional networks: Local UN Global Compact networks will be empowered to effect change and build more dynamic national ecosystems for business sustainability. This effort should lead to the launch of new national and regional Global Compact networks with a focus on the Global South, China and the U.S.Measurable impact in prioritised areas: UN Global Compact programmes, co-created with local networks and delivered through them, focus on the Ten Principles to lead and shape action on five Sustainable Development Goals: Gender Equality (SDG 5), Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8), Climate Action (SDG 13), Peace Justice and Strong Institutions (SDG 16) and Partnerships (SDG 17) while adapting to each country’s unique context.Harnessing the collective action of SMEs: Accounting for most of the world’s businesses and employers, UN Global Compact will establish targeted and cross-cutting SME programmes that leverage digital tools and value chains to reach scale.Strong and active engagement with the UN and its partners: UN Global Compact will enhance collaboration at the global and national levels with UN agencies and UN country teams to accelerate its reach and its ability to advance responsible business practice globally. “Our goal is to raise expectations of how businesses will embed all Ten Principles. These are intrinsic to a company and serve as the enabler for contributions towards achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement. The five key shifts articulated in this strategy reflect our ambitions for global growth, prioritization and impact at scale,” Sanda Ojiambo said. “Together, we will be One Global Compact uniting business for a better world.” About the United Nations Global Compact As a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General, the United Nations Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Our ambition is to accelerate and scale the global collective impact of business by upholding the Ten Principles and delivering the Sustainable Development Goals through accountable companies and ecosystems that enable change.

A securities fraud class action has been filed and certain investors may have valuable claims. Class Period: August 20, 2020 – December 16, 2020 Lead Plaintiff Deadline: Feb. 19, 2021 Visit: www.hbsslaw.com/investor-fraud/TRIT Contact An Attorney Now: TRIT@hbsslaw.com 844-916-0895 Triterras, Inc. (TRIT) Securities Class Action: The complaint centers on the accuracy of Triterras’ and senior managements’ statements concerning the company’s dependence on- and the financial condition of- Rhodium Resources, a business controlled by Triterras CEO Srinivas Koneru. More specifically, according to the complaint, Defendants made misleading statements about or concealed (1) the extent to which Triterras revenue growth depended on referrals from Rhodium, (2) Rhodium’s dire financial condition, and (3) that as a result Rhodium was likely to refer fewer users to the company. Investors began to learn the truth, according to the complaint, on Dec. 17, 2020 when Triterras announced Rhodium was seeking a moratorium to shield itself from creditors while planning to restructure debts and continue business as a going concern. This news sent the price of Triterras shares crashing lower. Most recently, on Jan. 14, 2021, Phase 2 Partners published a report entitled “Is Triterras (TRIT) the Wirecard of Blockchain?” Among other things, Phase 2 highlighted its concerns over (1) undisclosed related party transactions, and (2) certain accounting matters Phase 2 considers to be “red flags.” In response, the price of Triterras shares crashed lower again. “We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Triterras intentionally misled them about the financial condition of its admitted material related party, Rhodium, when and after the company went public,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.

Automotive fuel injector refers to a component is responsible for the final delivery of fuel in the fuel injection system. High pressure fuel is delivered to the injector that is activated by a fuel injector control module or an engine control unit. When activated, the injector momentarily opens a valve that permits a precise amount of fuel to move into the combustion chamber. The fuel injector comprises of a valve that is opened by means of either fuel pressure or an electric solenoid valve. The amount of fuel to be injected in the cylinder depends on the timing of the valve opening. The injector is an alternative source of fuel injection for the carburetor, in which fuel is drawn because of the downward stroke of the piston. While, in case of an injector, the fuel is injected at a high pressure, by using a fuel pump. Get the Sample Pages of Report for More Understanding@ https://www.precedenceresearch.com/sample/1137 Growth Factors Fuel injectors are a precise way of performing atomization, mixing, and injection of fuel inside the cylinder. The need for varying air-fuel mixture requirements, as per the condition of loading and speed, is satisfied by the injectors besides this the carburetors are not capable to perform the same. The injector supplies a definite amount of fuel according to the requirement that increases the overall efficiency of the engine. The above-mentioned factor contributes as the key factor that drives the market for automotive fuel injector. On the other hand, shorter lifespan of injectors compared to the carburetors along with their higher cost are the main factors expected to restrict the market growth for the automotive fuel injector. Furthermore, repair of an injector is very critical. Apart from this, the rate of total unburnt hydrocarbons rises because of direct injection of the fuel that leads to increase in pollution.
