COLUMN-BP slammed for lofty climate change ambition, Rio ignored for small step: Russell

BP RIO +4 more BP RIO BP TRI RIO RIO

COLUMN-BP slammed for lofty climate change ambition, Rio ignored for small step: Russell | NASDAQ. In a far less splashy announcement, Rio Tinto RIO.AX, the world's second-largest mining company, said it was committing A$98 million ($65 million) to building a solar farm and battery storage system at a remote iron ore mine in Western Australia. The BP announcement could be easily attacked by critics as just another attempt at "greenwashing" by a big company whose products are carbon emissions intensive. BP has said it will provide a more detailed breakdown of how it will achieve its net zero emissions by September, and perhaps the company should be given the benefit of the doubt until this is released. But the less than positive reaction to BP's announcement underscored the risks to companies that operate in emissions intensive industries. While BP may well be planning to "walk the talk", for now it remains an example of the public relations effort seemingly getting ahead of the actual actions.

Community-based BP intervention successful in South Asia

BP BP

A multicomponent intervention implemented in rural communities in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka led to greater BP reductions in participants with hypertension compared with usual care, according to data from the COBRA-BPS trial published in The New England Journal of Medicine. “The unique feature of our trial is the rural-centric nature of the intervention wherein regular BP monitoring and health promotion are brought to the individual proactively by the trained community health worker rather than wait for the individual to seek medical attention,” Tazeen H. Jafar, MD, MPH, professor of health services and systems research at Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore, told Healio. Villages were assigned to a multicomponent intervention (n = 1,330; mean age, 59 years; 66% women; mean systolic BP at baseline, 146.7 mm Hg) or usual care (n = 1,315; mean age, 59 years; 63% women; mean systolic BP at baseline, 144.7 mm Hg). “The clinical practices need to reconfigure and offer proactive community outreach care including BP monitoring and lifestyle coaching by trained nonphysician health professionals to the patients, especially those with poorly controlled hypertension, and referrals to physicians who then prescribe and titrate antihypertensive medications and underscore adherence to antihypertensive medications to achieve BP control,” Jafar said in an interview.

Writer urges British Museum to end BP sponsorship

BP BP

Speaking at the museum’s BP Lecture Theatre, she explored the debate around the ethics of having children at a time of climate crisis. Critics say the oil giant’s sponsorship of institutions such as the British Museum acts to “artwash” BP. With the emphasis on the “carbon footprint”, companies such as BP “have invested in propaganda that cleverly deflects responsibility for emissions from the company on to the individual”, she said as she delivered the lecture in the theatre sponsored by the energy giant. Her comments come after protests at the British Museum ended following more than 50 hours, amid a row over the oil company’s sponsorship.
