I envision a future where corporations are regulated by governments to engage in sustainable practices. The VW story reveals just how common it is for corporations to attempt to cheat around the regulations instead of following them, and even when they are exposed there are relatively little consequences for these corporations. Therefore it is important for the government to step in and enforce the regulations properly, restrict the loopholes that large corporations use to maneuver their way out of, and regularly inspect the corporations to avoid exploitations. Despite the current issues that plague many NGOs, I believe they would still be the key to propel the government into action. Just like a spark is needed to light a fire, so are actions/campaigns promoted by NGOs needed to increase societal awareness that eventually pressures governmental action.
