    U.S. business borrowing for equipment rises 18% in May - ELFA

    U.S. companies' borrowing to spend on capital investments rose 18% in May from a year earlier, the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) said. Companies signed up for $9.1 billion in new loans, leases and lines of credit last month, up from $7.7 billion a year earlier. "The continued low interest rate environment, coupled with solid fundamentals in the U.S. economy, provide incentive for U.S. businesses to expand and grow their operations," ELFA Chief Executive Officer Ralph Petta said.

    Amazon, ExxonMobil Called Out Over Climate Transparency

    (Bloomberg) -- Amazon.com Inc., Exxon Mobil Corp. and Volvo are among more than 700 companies being targeted in a campaign backed by a large group of investors advocating for greater transparency when it comes to environmental impact.HSBC Global Asset Management, Investec Asset Management and close to 85 other investors representing a combined $10 trillion in assets are asking companies to comply with the reporting process managed by the Carbon Disclosure Project, a British nonprofit research group that solicits and scores corporate environmental disclosures.Investors and interested observers need “consistent, comparable information collected in one place so that they can benchmark performance and use the data to inform their decisions,” said Emily Kreps, global director of investor initiatives at CDP. HSBC and Investec didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.The effort targets companies the group says have failed to disclose such information for years at a time.Investors participating in the CDP initiative “are active managers or asset owners who have a sophisticated understanding of the [environment, social, and governance] disclosure they need from companies for their investment processes,” Kreps said. “We would expect to work with more investors on this in the future, especially as demand for corporate environmental data continues to rise.”Fossil fuel giant ExxonMobil has faced numerous investigations and lawsuits over its role in the global climate crisis. The company said it publishes environmental information through the framework developed by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and solicits feedback from shareholders.At Amazon, more than 7,600 employees recently backed a shareholder measure to push the company into developing an aggressive climate-fighting stance. (The effort failed. The company has said it will disclose its carbon footprint later this year.)Exxon said in an emailed statement that “we no longer participate in the Carbon Disclosure Project survey because our publicly available material provides a comprehensive and meaningful perspective on how we view and approach climate change-related risks.” Amazon, meanwhile, said it has set a “goal to reach 50% of all Amazon shipments with net zero carbon by 2030.”Volvo didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.(Updates with Amazon comment in penultimate paragraph.)To contact the author of this story: Eric Roston in New York at eroston@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Josh Petri at jpetri4@bloomberg.net, David RovellaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Volvo and Uber's first self-driving car is ready for the road

    Two years later, Volvo and Uber are ready to show off their first purpose-built self-driving car . They've introduced a variant of the XC90 SUV that's designed to accept and work with Uber's autonomous driving system from the outset. It packs sensors both above and built-in to help the vehicle navigate city streets on its own. Safety-conscious Volvo, however, is keen to tout "several" backup systems for braking, steering and power that will bring the SUV to a controlled stop if the main components fail.
