SnippETS for 10 October 2019

Welcome to this week’s edition of SnippETS. We start with a look at the protest action around climate change inaction, in NZ, and around the world, with a call for governments and businesses to do more.

 

Our PM is trying new ways of encouraging climate friendly trade; the Pacific Islands are asking for help with decarbonisation of shipping; one huge international business is making their freight fleet more sustainable; and the UK is looking for new ways to reduce aviation emissions.

We hope you enjoy this week's selection of articles.
