CSM UK sees profit almost halve

first_imgCSM United Kingdom saw operating profit fall by 46% for the full year to 31 December 2011. The manufacturer of bakery ingredients and finished products reported a turnover increase of 6.5% to £155.67 million (m), in its latest accounts filed at Companies House. However operating profit had fallen significantly from £13.1m in 2010, to just over £7m last year.The UK arm of CSM global said that although it saw some recovery in business performance, as volumes increased, raw material cost inflation had continued to affect them. “The directors expect the full year results for 2012, to show the impact of continuing increases in the cost of raw materials, driven by global demand and well as market sentiment and expectation,” said the firm. CSM Global announced in May this year that it planned to sell both its European and North American bakery businesses – which includes CSM United Kingdom – to focus on bio-based ingredients.last_img read more

Japan’s largest power generator to close all ‘inefficient’ coal plants by 2030

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Japan’s biggest power generator JERA said on Tuesday it will shut down all inefficient coal-fired power plants in Japan by 2030 and it aims to achieve net zero emissions of carbon dioxide by 2050 to tackle climate change.Closing inefficient coal power stations is in line with government policy but this was the first time a power company declared an intention to match that policy. A government panel is deliberating on how to define an inefficient coal-fired plant but JERA said, provisionally, it saw inefficient plants as ones that use “supercritical or less” technology.JERA, a thermal power and fuel joint venture between Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings and Chubu Electric Power, set the ambitious 2050 target as companies worldwide are accelerating action to help create a decarbonised society.“As a company operating globally and as a utility generating about one-third of domestic electricity, setting these goals is an essential qualification for remaining to be an energy company and an entry ticket for doing business in the global market,” Hisahide Okuda, managing executive officer at JERA, told a news conference.The company declined to say how many coal power plants will be closed by 2030, citing competitive reasons.To achieve the 2050 target, JERA aims to boost renewable energy centered on offshore wind-power farms while using greener fuels such as ammonia and hydrogen at its thermal plants.[Yuka Obayashi]More: Japan’s JERA to shut inefficient coal-fired power plants by 2030 Japan’s largest power generator to close all ‘inefficient’ coal plants by 2030last_img read more

California Bars Insurers From Dropping Policies in Wildfire Areas

first_imgAs California reels from this year’s record wildfires, the state announced on Thursday that it would prevent insurance companies from dropping homeowners for one year in many parts of the state, a sign of the growing financial turmoil caused by climate change.The measure, which applies to almost one-fifth of the state’s residential insurance market, prohibits companies from canceling or refusing to renew insurance policies for 2.1 million households in or near areas hit by this year’s wildfires.- Advertisement – The announcement reflects the increasing strain that climate change has placed on California, which had imposed a similar moratorium once before, at a smaller scale. As rising temperatures and longer droughts make wildfires more devastating, some insurers have responded to enormous financial losses by leaving fire-prone communities. That threatens the economies of those areas, because homes that can’t easily be insured are harder to sell, and nearly impossible to rebuild after a fire.California’s struggles are a preview of the threat that climate change poses to the long-term economic health of communities around the country. Insurers have begun pulling back from fire-prone areas in other states across the West. And in communities near oceans or rivers, the increasing cost of flood insurance poses a similar risk, driving down home values and make them harder to sell. Insurers have said that if the state wants them to keep doing business in those areas, officials must make it easier to allow insurance companies to charge higher premiums, reflecting what they say is the true risk from wildfires. Carolyn Kousky, executive director of the Wharton Risk Center at the University of Pennsylvania, described the new moratorium as a temporary measure that would not solve the underlying problem of growing climate risk.“This problem’s not going to go away. That raises a lot of questions about how we’re building and where we’re building,” Dr. Kousky said. “Clearly the market needs something much beyond this.” A bill that would have allowed insurers to take those steps, including justifying rate increases using computer models that predict future risk, failed to pass the state legislature this year after consumer groups said it would impose an unfair burden on homeowners.The Personal Insurance Federation of California, which represents insurers, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.People who lose access to private insurance can still buy coverage from a high-risk state program called the Fair Access to Insurance Requirements plan. But that coverage is typically more expensive and covers fewer types of damage.The state’s longer-term strategy involves encouraging local officials to reduce exposure and vulnerability to wildfire, through tougher building codes or rules about managing the vegetation around homes.“If we don’t want to be in this position every year, we have to reduce the risk to lives and homes,” Mr. Lara said.But the most promising changes tend to be restrictions on home construction in vulnerable areas. And those restrictions provoke strong pushback in California, where high housing prices have left many people struggling to find homes they can afford, creating pressure to keep building in high-risk areas. Mr. Lara’s office declined an interview request. In a statement, he said the new policy “gives millions of Californians breathing room and hits the pause button on insurance non-renewals while we take additional steps to expand our competitive market.”Still, the state’s ability to shield homeowners from the consequences of climate change is limited. The moratorium cannot be extended, which means that insurers who want to stop offering coverage in high-risk areas will eventually be able to do so. In response to growing climate risks, state officials have intervened to stop insurers from leaving high-risk areas. In December, California’s insurance commissioner, Ricardo Lara, for the first time imposed a similar one-year moratorium on insurers dropping coverage for more than 1 million policyholders in or near areas affected by wildfires.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more
