When corporations back woke capitalism, it means climate change action has gone mainstream.
A luxury jewellery company Tiffany & Co put a full-page advertisement in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, as Australia burned in catastrophic bushfires, and demanded action from Scott Morrison on climate change.
They declared, “We stand with Australia.”
This is just one of the example of major corporations that showed how they have intervened in response to the bushfire crisis.
They also illustrate how evident generosity can come hand-in-hand with brazen publicity.
One can easily dismiss this as a thoughtful stunt meant to bolster the Tiffany brand.
And this may be true, but there is a lot more going on.
When the major corporations back the social and political causes, it may be because they are convinced that the purpose has mainstream support.
Corporate backing of the bushfires shows that the tide has turned on public opinion.
If corporations are backing on climate change, then it means that their customers also believe in it.

Aunty Pamela Mam was born in Richmond, Western Queensland in 1938. She was a descendant of the Kuku Yalanji peoples in the Cooktown area.
Her mother was removed from Cooktown under the policy of Assimilation for Aboriginal People by then Australian Government. She spent her formative years on Palm Island. She realized while living there that she has a passion for nursing. She started her career as a Nurse Aid at Palm Island hospital and received permission to train as a nurse at Townsville Hospital. She becomes one of the first nurses in Queensland.
Her passion for the healthcare needs of the First Nation people came in the light in 1973 when she helped to establish the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service (ATSICHS), Brisbane. Aunty Pamela was an inspirational figure who has created an ongoing legacy of compassion and commitment to health care for First Nations Queenslanders.

It provided space to large-scale events such as the 2014 G20 Brisbane summit, and big brands like Eventbrite, Monash University and Queensland Tourism on its platform. It has helped its clients to organize events and streamline the communications and processes involving those events. It started its operation in 2014 when the co-founder and director, Graeme Caplen-Black, was invited to pitch on building an app for a Jazz festival.
He realized while developing that app that there was a lack of collective solutions to the shared problems among the businesses in the event industry, which gave him the idea to create Entegy.

Wall Street game City Hall Wall Street game City Hall $100 million gift.00 million gift.
The demand among investors for low-rated Chicago debt was so high that the taxpayers are going to save money and it will help Mayor Lightfoot's 2021 budget as well. There had been some highly advantageous market conditions in the last week for the significant refinancing of $1.5 billion in city debt.
It ended up providing an extra $100 million in finance costs to the city in the coming years. The savings will extend for decades and will be booked in 2021. Some would prefer this income to be spread over in terms of debt rather than a lump sum upfront.
Still, there is no question in the fact that this additional money will give Mayor Lori Lightfoot a considerable leg up to fill the large pension-related holes in the budget. The city had expected to save $210 million in interest charges, but it ended up saving $310 million.
