Vision: I envision a world in which businesses embody social and environmental responsibility in a way that would help benefit the health of the planet.
Value: I value the health of our planet, and the production of goods in a way that is not detrimental to the environment.
Stated Intervention: It's really difficult from what we discussed in class to push for businesses that would prioritize our environment and health of our planet first. I have considered governments implementing laws and regulations to check and limit businesses in their ecological footprints, but as discussed in class, ecological issues are quite complex. Like in the VW scandal, they got away with working around the emission standards during testing stages but actually emitting even more NO2 than the standard allowed in real life driving conditions. Its hard to keep track of the companies that are actually abiding by the rules and even setting up ways to monitor environmental performance is another difficult issue to tackle.
But perhaps if we continue pushing for strong environmental laws and direct action (boycotts) for system change we could gradually see change occur. We could maybe even push for more specific laws that involve companies being transparent with their production - obviously there may be ways for businesses to get around/lie about their production but I think having people come in and check/investigate the production would be helpful to some extent.
I think there should also be some education in schools on how most of the things we consume are manufactured to give people some insight to which are harmful for the environment and which companies to stop purchasing from and supporting.
Hopefully with some of these interventions, in the future we could start to see more businesses embodying social and environmental responsibility to help the environment.
