Beyond Greenwashing: Businesses Responding to the Climate Crisis
While there is a scientific consensus on human-caused climate change, there is still no social consensus on how to respond. What is the role of business in responding to the climate crisis beyond “do less harm”? The social changes needed for climate adaptation have focused on individual behaviour, such as reducing international flights and switching to a plant-based diet, an approach which has not worked so far. Will individual action ever trickle up and change our unsustainable systems? What are the collective social changes that constitute ‘climate adaptation’? Watch this webinar to hear about innovative responses to these issues, and how social entrepreneurs are pushing the boundaries of what is possible.
