Arnold Schwarzenegger to be Presented with Inaugural Benchmark Lifetime Achievement Award at Benchmark Week 2023


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Benchmark Mineral Intelligence Limited (“Benchmark”) is delighted to announce that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will be recognized with Benchmark’s inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award, for his visionary leadership in rapidly advancing clean, sustainable energy initiatives, while ensuring that the energy transition can also be a major economic driver.

The Award will be presented on behalf of Benchmark by Nobel Laureate Dr. Stanley Whittingham, forefather of the lithium-ion battery.

As the twice-elected leader of the State of California from 2003 to 2011, Governor Schwarzenegger spearheaded the state’s world-leading commitment to green energy and environmental stewardship, signing the first-in-the-nation Global Warming Solutions Act and the Million Solar Roofs Initiative in 2006. He also issued a seminal Executive Order establishing the Low Carbon Fuel Standard. Such actions set the standard for the rest of the USA and beyond.

Governor Schwarzenegger will kick-off Benchmark Week 2023 by joining Benchmark Chief Executive Officer, Simon Moores, for a Fireside Chat, to be moderated by veteran critical-materials expert, Ty Dinwoodie, Managing Director of G&W Advisory Ltd.

Governor Schwarzenegger is scheduled to commence the Keynote Fireside Chat at 9:00 am (PST) on Tuesday, November 14, 2023 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Los Angeles, California, the home of Benchmark Week 2023 for the week.

Moores, commented, “A generation ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger shifted the entire geopolitical narrative towards the advent of batteries, electric vehicles, and low-carbon technologies long before it was in the mainstream discourse.”

“It is our privilege to recognize Governor Schwarzenegger for his outstanding contributions to clean energy,” Moores said. “Arnold was the first US governor to develop a comprehensive, future-focussed energy strategy, which created the example for low-carbon energy policies around the world.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger, through the USC Schwarzenegger Institute and the Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative, continues to work tirelessly to advance the numerous sustainable energy and environmental initiatives that he spearheaded during his tenure as Governor.

Benchmark Week 2023 is Benchmark’s flagship annual event, taking place November 14 to 16, 2023 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Benchmark Week 2023 is the world’s leading industry forum for the critical-mineral supply chains for energy-transition technologies.

Anchored by Benchmark’s focus on lithium-ion batteries, this year the event expands out to include rare earths and permanent magnets, sodium-ion batteries, and emerging technologies crucial to transitioning the world away from fossil fuels.

Havila Kystruten AS: Regnskap for tredje kvartal 20231.12.2023 18:34:33 CET | Pressemelding

September var første måned med full drift av alle fire skip. Til tross for forsinkelse av Havila Polaris og Havila Pollux i Q3, ble gjennomsnittlig belegg 70 % og gjennomsnittlig lugarrate kr 4 466. Inntektene er naturligvis preget av forsinkelsene og lavere enn forventet, men selskapet ser en positiv inntektsutvikling fra 2. kvartal og videre ut året. I forbindelse med refinansiering er driftskostnadene påvirket av ekstraordinære kostnader knyttet til juridiske og finansielle rådgivere. Regnskap og balanse påvirkes av valutasvingningene, og selskapet sikrer sine valutaforpliktelser med salg i valuta. Selskapet legger til grunn en normalisert drift av fire skip fremover, uten ekstraordinære kostnader. Selskapet har ambisjoner om et gjennomsnittlig belegg på 80 % for 2024, hvorav 45 % av all kapasitet allerede er solgt. Interessen for Havila Kystruten øker stadig i både inn- og utland, og positive tilbakemeldinger om produkt og konsept mottas på daglig basis. Resultat for 3. kvartal 202

Havila Kystruten : Third quarter 2023 accounts1.12.2023 18:34:33 CET | Press release

September marked the first month of full operation for all four ships. Despite the delays with Havila Polaris and Havila Pollux in Q3, the average occupancy rate reached 70%, with an average cabin rate of NOK 4,466.

Currency fluctuations have had an impact on the financial statements and balance sheet, and the company is hedging its currency commitments through currency sales. The company assumes normalized operation of four ships going forward, without extraordinary costs. The company aims for an average occupancy rate of 80% for 2024, with 45% of all capacity already sold.
