YourUpdateTV

Technology and Lifestyle Expert, Stephanie Humphrey, partners with Affirm, THX Ltd., and VAIO to explore ways consumers can include tech into their longer summer days and nights. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Cxp49uDveT8 The summer sun is sure to heat things up, but there’s nothing hotter than scoring the latest tech gadgets, like new computers and audio devices, to enhance the warmer months ahead. Additionally, tech makes summer travel easier to manage thanks to certain app-based services. In fact, more people plan to travel this summer with 73% of consumers taking an average of two trips. Over 148 million travel bookings are made annually, with an estimated 700 million people booking online by 2023. U.S. consumers not only rely upon tech for their travel needs, but also everyday purchases, including summer apparel, fitness, and electronics. More than one-third of people use shopping apps between two and five times a week, while 28% use them at least once a day. Technology and Lifestyle Expert, Stephanie Humphrey says whether home or vacationing, consumers can enjoy the season thanks new gear and gadgets. COMPUTER TECH: The popularity of hybrid work schedules and learning from home has increased the demand for computers over the past two years. In fact, more people are expected to work from home throughout the summer months. Humphrey says many of us have found a new life balance when it comes to work and free time, adding, “It’s estimated that more than 36 million of us will work remotely by 2025. That means we’re going to need something that fits our lifestyles.” VAIO, the premier Japanese computer brand known for exceptional quality notebooks equipped with the latest technology, expands its FE Series to offer new high-performance laptops with an impressively long battery life to work, create, game, and watch entertainment from anywhere, for longer. It's equipped with 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, Windows 11—and with THX® Spatial Audio—which means an immersive lifelike soundscape for enjoying all types of entertainment. The new VAIO FE laptops deliver maximum performance and immersive experiences in a slim, portable design.

How Hershey is Increasing Supplier Diversity and Building a Better Business for All

The Hershey Company

Bethany Fitzgerald, Director, Responsible Sourcing & Katie Morison, Manager, Responsible Sourcing Key Takeaways: Our newly launched ESG (environmental, social and governance) Report states, for the first time, our current numbers and goals to increase supplier diversity. By 2030, we are seeking to quadruple our spend with diverse suppliers, reaching $400 million. By making it a priority to partner with businesses owned by people of color, women, veterans, LGBTQ+ and people living with a disability, we are striving to better reflect our consumers and build a better enterprise for all. At Hershey, we believe that when our team and our external partners reflect the makeup of our consumers, everybody benefits. This is more than a business imperative. It’s a mandate from President and CEO Michele Buck, and it’s shaping the work across the entire Hershey organization, including our Supplier Diversity Program. In Hershey’s newly launched 2021 ESG Report, we’ve made a formal commitment to quadruple our current spend with diverse suppliers by 2030. In 2021, we spent $92 million with 139 diverse suppliers, including businesses owned by people of color, women, veterans, LGBTQ+ and people living with a disability. We are committed to spending $400 million with diverse supplier partners by 2030. Supplier diversity is a critical component of our holistic diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategy, The Pathways Project, which launched in 2020 after we set ambitious goals to create a more diverse and inclusive business. By publishing this supplier diversity goal for the first time, we’re committing to transparency and to holding ourselves accountable to make a greater impact. Here are the steps we’re taking to accomplish this goal: We’re making the most of technology. In 2021, we brought in a new data partner to strengthen our systems for tracking diverse supplier spend and provide us with an improved tool to identify and vet new diverse suppliers. We’re networking and learning from others. We joined two groups — the National Minority Supplier Development Council and the Women’s Business Enterprise Center East — in order to learn and grow, while also tapping into their diverse supplier networks and supporting their development of diverse businesses. We’re enlisting diversity champions across our organization. To amplify our message internally, we engaged all executive officers and their teams in 2021. Each business group nominated supplier diversity champions, who work with procurement to spearhead these efforts. We’re educating our teams. In 2022, we’ll be launching a new e-learning course on supplier diversity so that all employees understand their role in our supplier diversity commitments. The program will highlight the importance of supplier diversity and share actionable steps for team members across the organization. We’re sharing our expectations with suppliers. We are seeking to increase diversity in both the first and second tiers of our supply chain, that is, with the suppliers with whom we directly conduct business (Tier 1) as well as vendors who support our direct suppliers (Tier 2). We want our Tier 1 suppliers to embrace our diversity goals, so we’ve enhanced our supplier diversity language in contracts to support an expansion of our Tier 2 program in 2022 — thus creating change beyond our walls and throughout our value chain. Improving supplier diversity has been a goal for Hershey since the early 2000s, when the company first established a formal supplier diversity program. We’ve set ambitious goals throughout the years, and in 2020, we achieved our best supplier diversity performance to date. Still, we know we can do better. Based on our own benchmarking, our 2020 performance was about average when compared with other similar businesses. Still, it lagged behind the CPG industry at large, if you include restaurants and retailers. If we can reach our 2030 goal of $400 million in diverse supplier spending, we hope to measure at the center or even at the front of the industry at large. These kinds of initiatives aren’t easy at any time — it takes times to identify, evaluate and onboard new vendors. But right now, with ongoing supply chain disruptions amid high demand for our products, there’s an added risk in switching to new vendors. We understand that a push for supplier diversity, like other ESG initiatives, can easily fall to the back burner at times like these. However, we are fully committed to continuous improvement and achieving all of our ESG goals. By increasing the representation of diverse suppliers, we have the opportunity to empower businesses and lift up families and even communities that have too often been left out of the conversations and contracts. We believe that when we can support a more inclusive economy, we’re building a stronger business that truly delivers for all of our stakeholders. And there’s never been a better time for that.

These Next-Gen Batteries Are Low-Carbon, Recyclable and Nontoxic

TriplePundit

Energy storage is the key to unlocking Earth’s vast wind and solar energy resources, but limitations associated with lithium-ion batteries, the technology of choice to date, are driving demand for alternatives. Li-ion technology is facing new challenges in its supply chain in addition to well-known operational constraints, safety risks and environmental impacts. While Li-ion batteries can be a good option for relatively short-duration storage applications, innovative new offerings, such as the utility-scale iron flow batteries produced by the energy storage firm ESS, provide more environmentally sustainable solutions that are able to store and deploy clean energy over longer durations built on a streamlined, plug-and-play platform. Long-duration energy storage and the flow battery advantage Li-ion batteries are long-lasting when used in small devices, but large-scale Li-ion installations, such as those capable of powering the grid or other large energy users, typically only provide power for a few hours. That is sufficient in some cases, but there are many more instances in which energy storage technologies capable of delivering power for 10 hours or more could provide utilities and large-scale energy users with needed flexibility and control over their power supply. In addition, these long-duration technologies can serve as emergency back-up over extended periods and accelerate the adoption of wind and solar resources, reducing or eliminating the need to construct new fossil power plants. Flow batteries are a type of long-duration technology that has begun to challenge Li-ion in the energy storage space. As the name suggests, flow batteries leverage the ability of fluids (electrolytes) to store electricity when they flow through the system in one direction and release it again when they flow in the reverse direction. One leading appeal of the technology is its simplicity. The bulk of a flow battery system consists of tanks which can be scaled up or down according to needed duration. In addition, the electrolytes used in typical flow batteries are non-flammable and non-toxic, making the battery systems safe and environmentally benign. Unlike Li-ion technology, flow batteries can also be taken out of service and started up again quickly, even after sitting dormant for long periods. That provides energy managers with a higher degree of flexibility and responsiveness to demand. Flow batteries are not new, but early iterations of the technology were bulky and inefficient. Recent advances in materials science have provided innovators with new opportunities to improve efficiency and develop more effective, energy-dense systems. A new twist on the old flow battery Conventional flow batteries utilize two electrolyte solutions separated by a specialized membrane. A unique feature of the system developed by ESS is that the same base material (iron chloride) is used for both electrolytes. When the ESS battery charges, iron dissolved in the electrolyte is turned into metallic form and adheres to carbon plates, which act as electrodes. The amount of energy that can be stored is equivalent to the surface area of each plate times the thickness of the iron plating. To discharge the battery, the negative and positive terminals are simply reversed. That makes the iron dissolve back into the saltwater, as quickly as flipping on a light switch. The stored energy is available virtually in an instant. ESS built its technology on previous research, with two key advances that provide for a closed-loop system that is easily recyclable and longer-lived. One new element is a precisely engineered management system for the iron-to-carbon plating process, which enables thousands of charging cycles without degradation. The other improvement is the electrolyte, which is designed to be restored to its original condition with each charging cycle so it can be reused thousands of times. The sustainable supply chain of the future The environmental and social justice impacts of the fossil fuel industry are well known. Environmentally intensive extraction and refining practices disproportionately harm low-income communities and communities of color while the particulate and greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion place many populations at risk, particularly those in low-lying areas more vulnerable to flooding and sea-level rise. With a strong desire for more sustainable energy solutions, the impacts of the lithium supply chain are becoming increasingly apparent and include reliance upon critical minerals produced in politically unstable regions with poor environmental and human rights track records. When in use, Li-ion batteries pose fire risks, creating obstacles to safe siting and operation These challenges for the Li-ion battery field are surfacing as corporate sustainability planners increasingly seek cleaner, more ethical and lower-impact energy solutions. ESS stands out in that its battery does not employ rare earth minerals or materials sourced from conflict areas. The main components of the system are domestically produced in the U.S., including plastic and fiberglass tanks, casings and pipes, along with off-the-shelf pumps and other electrical equipment, according to the company. Likewise, the iron salts and carbon plates are sourced from a number of domestic vendors. The electrolyte solution is environmentally benign and nonflammable. When an ESS battery reaches the end of its life, the electrolyte can be easily recycled or dehydrated, and the salts can be transferred to public works agencies and other users. A simple solution for utilities and energy managers One ESS system, the Energy Warehouse, has been designed as a fully integrated, transportable, plug-and-play module enclosed in a 40-foot steel shipping container. This all-in-one approach relieves energy planners from having to develop complicated installation plans, and permits are relatively easy to acquire because the system is water-based and environmentally friendly. Aside from ease of installation, ESS cites the operational simplicity of its iron flow battery, especially with regards to utility-scale operations. “With Li-ion batteries for utilities, you get a big rule book of do's and don'ts to maximize life of battery without voiding the warranty or violating safety requirements,” said Hugh McDermott, senior vice president of business development and sales for ESS. “Lithium-ion systems have to be rested after charging, have to be discharged daily, there is a limit on the number of charges annually, and a limit on the rate of charge.” In contrast, “there are no rules for the ESS system,” he explained. “It is more flexible as to charging and discharging. There are no rest periods, no cooling off, no worries about heat and safety, and no limit to yearly or lifetime cycling. With zero performance degradation, there is no need to replace modules in an eight- or 10-year time frame, no need to plan for battery pack replacement, and no need for a sensor system to track battery health.” The bottom-line case for sustainable energy storage The cost of the ESS system is similar to an equivalent Li-ion system while providing much longer duration and operating life. The ESS flow battery offers two to three times the usability of Li-ion systems, while lasting two to three times longer, McDermott said. In addition, the ESS system relies on established industries for end-of-life recycling, enabling energy planners to factor those costs into consideration. In contrast, end-of-life costs for Li-ion systems are unknown because the Li-ion battery recycling industry is still in its infancy. “The market is evolving and will continue to evolve, and an iron flow battery system you invest in today can be upgraded by adding more electrolyte at a low cost,” McDermott explained. Corporate planners and utility managers who make smart decisions about energy storage technology today will help ensure a strong foothold in the sustainable – and profitable – energy landscape of the future.
