Isabel dos Santos Goes Green

Isabel dos Santos is passionate her home country of Angola, Africa. As the daughter of the former president of this country, she has been concerned about its growth and its economic future. She has championed and advocated for the upgrade of telecommunications and technology, claiming that it will help Angola compete on the global economic stage and strengthen the country’s finances. She has also expressed concern about its future as well. She claims that green technology practices are the key to a sustainable future especially in emerging markets.

Isabel dos Santos is concerned about Angola’s natural resources which have been degrading due to practices that are not sustainable. This is readily observable in the agricultural industry. These practices have not adapted to the changing climate and have been threatening productivity, food stores and the livelihoods of many people living in the rural areas throughout the country. Flooding and drought have resulted in poor water quality, poor sanitation and disease. These conditions have caused food prices to soar and poverty to rise due to rising food prices.

Como líderes, a forma como desenvolvemos o #talento nas nossas organizações diz muito sobre o que que consideramos mais importante, tanto na sociedade como no mundo corporativo. Para mim é criar oportunidades que aproveitem ao máximo o talento jovem local#Angola #emprendedores pic.twitter.com/7wEVSrbihH— Isabel Dos Santos (@isabelaangola) July 4, 2019

By promoting the development and use of green, climate smart technologies, Angola can be prepared to deal positively with these natural disasters. Isabel dos Santos urges that in order for green technology to exist, the local and federal government within a country must be willing to make the commitment to invest funds in the development of the technology and the infrastructure associated with it. African countries such as Kenya and Uganda, have made the commitment to promoting sustainability and have made great strides toward this goal. As economic researchers have noted, green and sustainable technologies will boost agricultural productivity. Societies with high agricultural productivity will be able to shift a portion of this labor into a sector that develops knowledge and technology and become more sustainable in the future.

Stream Energy partners on other Organizations

Stream Energy has always been involved in a significant amount of philanthropic efforts since being founded over a decade ago. Throughout this time, the Dallas-based energy provider has helped raise much-needed funds and awareness for quite a diverse range of causes. Now, however, the company is looking for further advance these charitable causes with the formation of Stream Cares, a subsidiary that will focus on the overall company’s charitable efforts. While corporate philanthropy is common, this is one of the few occasions where a company has gone to such great lengths to advance their efforts.

Since being founded, Stream Energy has let its independent distributorsdecide which causes the energy giant should be involved in. This is chiefly because these distributors are local to the area and know what the community cares about most, as well as what the biggest issues facing the region are. Because of that, Stream Energy has continually sought to hear from everyone in the community that it serves. This was on show in the aftermath of the likes of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Katrina, both of which caused extensive damage across Texas. However, Stream partnered with both Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross to provide aid to as many people as possible. These partnerships have been going strong for several years.

However, perhaps one of the most notable philanthropic efforts that Stream Energy has been involved in has been the issue of homelessness. This is something that has, unfortunately, been on the rise in the greater Dallas area, which prompted the energy provider to launch into action. As a result, it partnered with the Hope Supply Co. to provide funding and resources to many homeless people in the area. This partnership has been growing for the past several years, with Stream Energy continually donating to those in need. On top of this, the company has also been repeatedly involved in the charity’s annual Splash for Hope event.

This not only raises some much-needed funds for the Hope Supply Co, but Stream Energy has also helped to provide access for 1,000 homeless children to a waterpark in the area. Furthermore, a significant amount of supplies are given out throughout the day.https://www.indeed.com/cmp/Stream-Energy
