A major shift is about to happen: confronted with the ecological challenge, the planets — here, the interests of citizens, consumers, companies and finance — look set to align in an unprecedented manner. Can finance be an ally of sustainable development? It would seem counterintuitive as finance is often associated with short-term bank lending while sustainable development issues are, by definition, tackled from a longer-term perspective.

Everyone comes away with something from the tussle for Swiss adhesives maker Sika AG. In December 2014, the Burkard family agreed to sell a 16 percent stake in Sika to French customer Cie. de Saint-Gobain SA. The Sika board and other shareholders were furious. Worse, the transaction was hatched in secret, even though the Burkards sit on Sika's board.
PARIS/ZURICH (Reuters) - Swiss adhesives maker Sika has repelled a hostile takeover bid from Saint-Gobain in a $3.2 billion deal that gives the French company a minority stake but may make Sika a more attractive target for others. Under the transaction announced on Friday, Saint-Gobain dropped its plan to wrest control of Sika via a minority stake that carried extra voting rights. Instead, Saint-Gobain gets a 10.75 percent holding.
