Nasdaq congratulates Delphix on its launch of SustainableIT.org

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SustainableIT.org, the new nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing global sustainability through technology leadership, today announced its new executive director and additional board members, following its successful inaugural board meeting May 24 in New York.

SustainableIT.org is proud to name Kath Marston as its Executive Director and General Manager. Marston brings leadership development experience gained from serving as Group Vice President, Client Experience/Operations for IDC’s CIO Executive Council, having overseen a community of leading Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and top technologists across global organizations.

“I am extremely excited to lead this powerful agenda. Technology leaders can have a critical impact on global sustainability efforts, and our commitment to galvanizing these leaders to act is vital for the prosperity of businesses, humanity, and the entire planet,” Marston said.

Its next board meeting and executive summit will be held at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, on August 15th where multiple SustainableIT.org board members will accept CIO 100 Awards shortly thereafter.

Companies are increasingly committing to maximizing sustainability within their operations, and most companies will have developed a roadmap and formally pledged to make sustainability a corporate-wide goal by 2025*, according to research from IDC. They will fulfill these pledges by using the latest tools and software to monitor and reduce power consumption, which makes a set of sustainability standards for the IT field all the more urgent to establish.

By uniting IT leaders and experts from around the world to define best practices and standard metrics for the United Nations’ three pillars of sustainability, SustainableIT.org is committed to driving transparency and progress toward a sustainable future.

“Our objective is to expand global awareness through a dedicated community of worldwide thought leaders, create education and positive awareness actions, measurable improvement in terms of sustainability management and improvement across technology executives,” Marston said. “Our passion is to inspire and make a better world for the next generation and generations to come.”

Ashanti NPP race: Wontumi entered arena with cash-laden bullion van to induce delegates – Failed aspirant reveals

A failed Ashanti Regional chairman aspirant of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kofi Adum Bawuah, has petitioned the national executives of the party to investigate what, in his view, were some anomalies that characterised the party’s regional election at the Baba Yara Sports stadium in the Kumasi metropolis that saw the incumbent chairman, Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, retained on Saturday, May 28.

According to Mr Bawuah, the elected chairman flouted all the rules of the game.

Mr Bawuah raised these concerns in an interview with Odehyeeba Kofi Essuman, sit-in host of Accra100.5M’s morning show, Ghana Yensom on Thursday, June 2, 2022.

He said, as part of the guidelines for the election, no aspirant was supposed to drive his or her car to the election ground but Chairman Wontumi did so.

He alleged that Chairman Wontumi’s car was followed by a bullion van full of cash, which, he claimed was used to induce the delegates to vote for him.

He told the host that he saw the bullion van himself following the car that Chairman Wontumi drove to the arena.

Mr Bawuah also accused the Ashanti Regional Minister, who was also the Chairman of the elections committee, of skewing the process in favour of Chairman Wontumi.

Below is a petition he has filed at the National Executive Committee of the party:

Re-elected Savannah Region Women’s organizer thanks delegates, calls for unity

Re-elected women’s organizer of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Savannah Region, Hajia Safia Mohammed has conveyed words of appreciation to delegates of the party for the unwavering trust and confidence reposed in her to retain her position.

In a statement issued and copied to Modern Ghana News, she said, “I haven’t had the opportunity to express my profound gratitude to you fellow patriots of our enviable party. It is therefore necessary and prudent to extend my heartfelt appreciation to you all for the massive support and love showed me before, during and after the regional elections”.

Hajia Safia who fiercely beat off competition to win the race ahead of two other contenders said she will remain indebted to the delegates for giving her another mandate to serve the women’s wing of the party for another four years.

She also called on her opponents who challenged her for the position to put the past behind them and forge ahead in oneness of purpose for the interest of the party.

“We must put the past aside, build bridges and forge ahead for a better NPP. We must eschew self-interest, petty squabbles and unite for the interest of the party”.

Security heads visits 11 mech area of operation

The Minister for National Security, Hon Albert Kan-Dapaah has led a high-powered security delegation comprising the Upper East Regional Minister and Head of the Regional Security Council, Hon. Stephen Yakubu, the Deputy National Security Coordinator, Hon Edward Kwaku Asomani, Chief of the Army Staff, Maj Gen Thomas Oppong- Peprah and the Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice-Marshal Frank Hanson on a visit to the 11 Mechanised Battalion Area of Operation including Bawku and Mognori Detachments in the Upper East Region.

The visit was necessitated by the emerging threats of terrorism along the northern frontiers of the country and the national efforts to ward off these terrorists.

It would be recalled that the Ghana Armed Forces with sister security services had embarked on several counter-terrorism training exercises and operations with the collaboration of their international partners in recent years to deter and rid the country of any terrorist element or threat while protecting the citizenry and national assets. These exercises were Exercise Eagle Claws, Exercise Burning Arrow and Operation CONQUERED FIST among others.

The delegation visited Pulmakom Detachment to ascertain at firsthand, the bare facts as regards force protection, boundary issues with neighboring countries and the total welfare of troops. They also visited the Mognori detachment in the Bawku Municipality.

The Commanding Officer, 11 Mechanised Battalion, Lt Col Minta-Agyemang briefed the Minister and his entourage on the operations, training, and logistics matters in his Area of Operation.

In a Durbar with troops at both detachments, the Minister commended the Soldiers for the good work done so far. He noted that personnel of the Unit had stayed true to their constitutional mandate to protect the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ghana at all times. Hon Kan Dapaah said Government was aware of the challenges personnel faced and efforts have been made to deliver the necessary resources to enable them to work effectively and efficiently.

The Minister, therefore, encouraged them to remain professional, hardworking, and vigilant in order to continue to protect the northeastern frontiers of the country.

Other members of the delegation included the General Officer Commanding Northern Command, Brig Gen Moses Aryee, Heads of Security Services in the Upper East Region, and Staff Officers from Army Headquarters and Northern Command.

Ghana Chamber of Mines holds 94th AGM

The Ghana Chamber of Mines has held its 94 Annual General Meeting (AGM) following a successful two-day West African Mining & Power Conference and three-day exhibition in Accra.

The AGM witnessed the change of presidential baton from Mr. Eric Asubonteng, Managing Director of AngloGold Ashanti Obuase to Mr. Joshua Mortoti, Executive Vice President and Head of West Africa for Gold Fields.

In his handing over speech, Immediate Past President, Mr. Eric Asubonteng said the Chamber’s strategic posture over the last few years has been one that truly positions the Chamber as a partner to government in our common vision of ensuring the sustainable growth of a mining industry that benefits all stakeholders.

Mr. Asubonteng added that the collaborative approach to working with the government, as a key stakeholder, has allowed the Chamber to make some progress.

Presenting the presidential address after assuming office, Mr. Mortoti reiterated the Chamber’s desire to position Ghana as the mining support services hub in West Africa but stressed that it would “require a collective effort from industry leaders and policymakers embracing new technologies and the opportunities they bring”.

Mr. Mortoti further stated that Artificial Intelligence (AI), automation, and big data analytics are key elements for mining firms that aspire to be at the leading edge and be competitive through improving productivity and working conditions for employees.

“As part of sustainable and responsible mining, renewable energy systems would help reduce environmental impact while big data analytics can help improve a firm’s performance with regards to planning, yields, and unscheduled equipment downtimes” he added.

According to the Chamber President, the mining sector can contribute much more to Ghana if political actors and industry leaders work together towards a common goal.

“A goal that will make Ghana the leader in mining in Africa and the mining support service hub in West Africa. Hosting the Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) in Ghana is a great opportunity to anchor the attraction of investors to the mining sector as well as its value chain. The Chamber is willing and ready to support and collaborate with the government to achieve the objectives of AfCFTA” he said.

Mr. Mortoti urged members of the Chamber to operate at a steady level and thereby address the challenges that confronted their operations in 2021 adding that “in that regard, we project an increase in gold output of producing member companies between 2.9 million ounces and 3 million and a corresponding increase in revenue and other benefits to government and other stakeholders.”
