Why More Global Corporations Are Betting on Renewables
Facebook recently heralded that it will source 100 percent of its electricity consumption from renewables by 2020, representing the latest direct renewables purchase by a major global corporation. The social media site joins Apple and Google, which already power all their operations using renewable electricity. But while Silicon Valley's giants are clearly among the leaders in embracing green electricity, other industrial and commercial segments are not far behind. The materials segment, including metals, is the largest consumer of directly sourced renewable electricity. For instance, metals giant Alcoa sources 75 percent of the energy required for its smelters from renewables, while mining giant Rio Tinto acquires just under half of its energy from such sources. In telecommunications, AT&T and T-Mobile are pursuing aggressive renewables plans, and there are others on the cutting edge in retail, including Wal-Mart, Ikea, Nike and Starbucks. Volkswagen, in turn, leads the way for renewables in manufacturing

Today, China is a major market for Brazil's soybean exports, which account for over 40 percent of its total exports to the Asian country. And because of Beijing's trade spat with the United States and ambitious infrastructure investments in Brazil, Brazilian soybean exports to China are poised to keep growing.

Bolivia and Brazil have an agreement to build a rail line through Bolivia that would connect the Peruvian port of Ilo with Brazil's rail network.
Getting Brazil's Infrastructure Back on Track
Brazil's breadbasket is centered in its fertile midwestern highlands with their subtropical climate conducive to growing grain. But given the poor transportation infrastructure connecting those grain-producing regions with major ports on the northeastern coast, Brazilian corn and soybeans often do not follow the most efficient route to export destinations. Considering the importance of agriculture to both Brazil's gross domestic product and its total exports, improving the efficiency of road and railway networks has been a priority for the country. Action on infrastructure projects until now has been derailed, but that is changing.
