(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Today, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest provider of HIV/AIDS care globally, praised the commitment by African nations to eliminate AIDS in children by 2030.

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Sports company PUMA has joined Zero100, a community of industry leaders which aims to reduce carbon emissions from the supply chain through digitization, to take the next step after the company announced significant carbon emission cuts last year.
