THE HAGUE nike air max 2018 uk , Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- Turnover of Unilever in 2014 dropped by 2.7 percent to 48.4 billion euros (56.1 billion U.S dollars), including a negative currency impact of 4.6 percent, the Anglo-Dutch consumer goods company announced on Tuesday.

The producer of Lipton tea, Knorr food, Dove soap, Omo laundry products and Ben and Jerry's ice cream had an underlying sales growth of 2.9 percent in 2014. Unilever's net profit last year rose by 5 percent to 5.5 billion euros. The underlying volume growth in 2014 was 1 percent.

In the fourth quarter of 2014 nike air max 97 womens uk , Unilever's underlying sales growth was 2.1 percent, compared to the same period last year. This growth was mainly due to higher prices, because the underlying volume growth was -0.4 percent. Turnover in the fourth quarter amounted to 12.1 billion euros, an increase of 2.4 percent, including a positive currency impact of 1.6 percent.

With weaker consumer demand, underlying sales growth in emerging markets slowed down to 5.7 percent cheap air max 97 mens uk , while developed markets declined by 0.8 percent. The Home Care, Personal Care and Refreshment departments all grew but Foods decreased. The underlying sales growth of Foods in the fourth quarter was -0.7 percent and was -0.6 percent over the full year 2014.

According to Unilever, sales in China decreased by 20 percent in the fourth quarter because retailers reduced their stocks of Personal Care and Home Care. In Europe, annual underlying sales fell by 2.1 percent in 2014, with prices dropping amid intense competition.

Unilever CEO Paul Polman said Unilever delivered another year of competitive underlying sales growth and margin expansion, despite a very challenging year for our industry with significant economic headwinds and weak markets.

He said he did not foresee a significant improvement in market conditions in 2015.

"Against this background nike air max 97 mens uk , we expect our full year performance to be similar to 2014 with the first quarter being softer but growth improving during the year," he said.

LHASA, April 22 (Xinhua) -- Since the 1950s, China's glaciers have retreated by about 7,600 square kilometers; around 18 percent. An average of 247 square kilometers of glacial ice has disappeared every year.

Even mountaineers on Mount Qomolangma seem surprised. "Qomolangma base camp, 5 nike air max 97 og uk ,200 meters above sea level, had been covered by thick ice, but now there is nothing but stones," Zhang Mingxing, director of Tibet's mountaineering administration center, told Xinhua.

His view was echoed by Kang Shichang of the institute of Tibetan Plateau research nike air max 97 undefeated uk , part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He calculates that glaciers around the mountain have shrunk by 10 percent since 1974, evidenced in the fact that a glacial lake downstream of the mountain is now 13 times bigger.

China has more than 46,000 glaciers, mainly on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, about 14.5 percent of the world's total. Glaciers are not only a major reservoir of fresh water but an important part of the climate system. "They are sources of life for China's western arid regions," said Kang.

The melting glaciers will inevitably lead to ecological and environmental change. Liu Shiyin nike air max 97 ultra uk , who led a survey of China's glaciers, told Xinhua that, in the short term, retreating glaciers will release meltwater and create lakes, leading to disaster. Glacial lakes in Tibet were breached 15 times between the 1930s and 1990s, causing floods and mudslides.

Glacial melt is closely related to climate change nike air max 97 gold uk , and the regional government of Tibet is doing all it can to cut emissions. Enterprises which invest in green energy including solar, wind and methane can enjoy tax privileges for up to eight years.

In addition to cutting emissions, Tibet has spent heavily to protect its environment.

Jiang Bai from the regional environmental protection department believes local governments are committed to ensuring clean water and blue sky in Tibet. Back in 2009, the State Council invested 15.5 billion yuan (about 2.5 billion U.S. dollars) in protecting Tibet's environment, Jiang said.

Although the money helps, it is not enough to stop glaciers from retreating nike air max 97 silver uk , said Kang Shichang.

Kang wants more research on glaciers and climate change, and better use of the meltwater. A warning system on glacier lakes is needed to protect local people.

"If glaciers do not have ice and mountains do not have snow, what will our lives become? Humans must make every effort to protect nature and co-exist with it," said monk Ngawang Doa from a monastery on the foot of Mount Qomolangma.
