MIDLAND, Mich., July 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Dow (NYSE: DOW), the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and the Ladies European Tour (LET) announced today that Dow will serve as the Official Sustainability Resource for the organizations.

The move symbolizes Dow’s commitment to help sectors continue to develop, mobilize and accelerate effective action, and generate far-reaching results across a range of priority themes connected to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The partnership is a four-year commitment to collaborate toward these goals – creating a strategic blueprint for sustainable action across women’s professional golf that will extend existing initiatives in equity, diversity and inclusion, and strengthen approaches to climate action, promotion of biodiversity, and reductions in resource use and waste.

Together, Dow, the LPGA and the LET aim to deliver direct positive impacts; generate tangible and lasting legacies; share knowledge; and celebrate credible and inspirational leadership examples.

“Our work with the LPGA and LET is perfectly in step with Dow’s ambitious 2025 sustainability goals, specifically by leading a blueprint for sustainability and engaging with communities, customers and employees for positive impact,” said Mary Draves, chief sustainability officer and vice president, Environment, Health & Safety, Dow. “Through creative collaborations with like-minded partners, we can help ensure the well-being of people and the planet through the power of sport.”

“We have a history with Dow in promoting inclusion and career advancement for women in golf and we’re excited to expand this effort through this first-of-its kind partnership,” said Kelly Hyne, LPGA Chief Sales Officer. “As one of the world’s longest-running women’s professional sports associations, we have a distinct opportunity to drive meaningful change among tournaments, players, fans and the communities that welcome us by taking action on sustainability – socially, environmentally and economically.”

As the Official Sustainability Resource, Dow is working closely with the GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf (GEO) — a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring, supporting and recognizing sustainability in and through golf around the world. Dow and GEO will provide expertise to help develop LPGA and LET strategy, plus support and solutions to ensure effective and impactful delivery. GEO brings a wealth of experience to the table, working collaboratively with golf governing bodies, associations, athletes and media over the last 15 years. More widely, GEO has been highly active in the mainstream movement of sustainability, consulting with government agencies, NGOs, and business and supply chain platforms to bring the latest knowledge and insights to sustainability solutions for golf associations, tournaments, venues and athletes.

The expanded collaboration is an evolution of the success achieved at the inaugural Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational (Dow GLBI) in 2019, which became the first LPGA tournament to be GEO Certified®.

The first year of Dow as the Official Sustainability Resource will be dedicated to creating a baseline for long-term success, as well as exploring immediate opportunities for new action in inclusion, diversity and environmental stewardship. The program will expand to include developing initiatives which will promote sustainability and events centered on education and empowerment of young female golfers.

“Golf can play a highly valuable role in both championing and delivering on important social and environmental issues,” said LET Chief Executive Officer Alexandra Armas. “Alongside partners such as Dow and the GEO Foundation, we are able to develop our leadership, support others and then celebrate powerful stories across our community. We are inspired to take action on some of the most important issues of our time – fostering nature; conserving resources; taking climate action; and strengthening communities through women’s professional golf.’

The LET and Dow also collaborate on “Celebrating the Green,” an initiative spearheaded by the LET to celebrate and inspire change around conservation, climate and community across women’s golf.

Dow has been working alongside the LPGA since 2018 as the association’s Official Marketing Partner.

Banco XCMG S.A. Completes First Foreign Exchange Settlement and Sale Transaction with Newly Gains Foreign Exchange License Approval in Brazil

Published

on

Banco XCMG S.A., opened in July 2020 in Pouso Alegre, is the Chinese manufacturing industry’s first overseas bank and the first Chinese-invested enterprise bank in Brazil. Upon receiving the license, the bank will be able to save exchange costs for XCMG Brazil at more favorable exchange rates, which is of great significance to improve the overall operating efficiency of XCMG’s two companies in Brazil.

“The next step is for Banco XCMG S.A. to gradually hedge our foreign currency exchange to help XCMG Brazil lock in operating costs, prevent risks in the foreign exchange market, concentrate on the integrated development of our main business in the construction machinery market and ultimately provide more innovative, localized services for our Brazilian partners,” said Wang Min, CEO an Chairmanof XCMG.

The foreign exchange license will expand Banco XCMG S.A.’s innovative service capabilities based on the real needs of customers. It is aimed at providing “equipment manufacturing + equipment finance” solutions to customers through integrated operation with XCMG Brazil, combined with an adjusted credit policy. A top-three equipment leasing company in Brazil has already purchased 42 units of XCMG excavators through Banco XCMG S.A.

Since opening, Banco XCMG S.A. has been faced with challenges including insufficient channels to expand funding sources but now it is working with eight external financial institutions to obtain an unsecured credit line of 225 million reais. The cost of capital has been reduced greatly, varieties of financing have been fruitful, and the maximum financing period has reached three years.

The bank has also focused on team building and cross-cultural exchanges between China and Brazil, encouraging staff to put forward suggestions for the bank’s future development, offering them a sense a belonging.

Avielan desarrolla amarres para coche con gancho trenzado patentado, una primicia a nivel mundial

Published

on

NAGOYA, Japón, 29 de julio de 2021 /PRNewswire/ — 

– Son 1,5 veces más fuertes y cuentan con una fuerza frente a la rotura de 3 toneladas –

Avielan Co., Ltd. con sede en Nagoya, Japón, ha comenzado a vender un amarre para automóviles que está equipado con un gancho curvado patentado como equipo estándar. Al girar el gancho en diagonal como un anillo de rompecabezas, la empresa ha logrado alcanzar la seguridad gracias a su resistencia a la rotura de 3 toneladas, que es 1,5 veces mayor que la de los productos convencionales.

– Se trata del primer gancho curvado en el mundo que presenta una fuerza 1,5 veces superior al del nivel anterior

Con el objetivo de hacer crecer la seguridad y la resistencia, las propiedades más importantes en el amarre de un automóvil, se ha desarrollado de forma ingeniosa un “gancho curvado”. Simplemente cambiando su estructura en base a un concepto completamente nuevo, Avielan ha logrado un amarre que es seguro y que al mismo tiempo presenta una fuerza asombrosa.

La resistencia a la rotura del producto convencional suele ser de 2 toneladas, pero la resistencia de este amarre de automóvil con el gancho curvado patentado llega hasta las 3 toneladas. Además, al disponer de una doble medida de seguridad, también está equipado con un tope de cinturón que reduce el riesgo de que se produzca una apertura de la hebilla.

– Gancho curvado que no se suelta

Al retirar el gancho curvado, el usuario debe girarlo de forma intencionada como si fuera un anillo de rompecabezas. Este es el motivo por el que se ha diseñado para soportar sacudidas y vibraciones durante el proceso de transporte. Con solo girar la punta del gancho, la parte curvada queda atrapada en el perno de ojo, y por ello resulta muy difícil de quitar.

– Está previsto que su introducción crezca después de la COVID-19

Debido a la propagación de la pandemia de la COVID-19, las actividades económicas en todo el mundo se han visto obligadas a estancarse por un tiempo. A pesar de ello, gracias a la propagación de las vacunas, está previsto que las actividades económicas se vuelvan más activas de forma gradual después de que la pandemia esté bajo control.

En la industria del automóvil en particular, las previsiones son que aumente la cantidad de transporte. Este es el motivo por el que, ahora más que nunca, es necesario disponer de un transporte seguro y protegido, y este automóvil amarrado con un gancho curvado está atrayendo la atención.
