I believe that to achieve a win-win situation for both business and ecosystems. Corporations must follow a sustainable path that takes society, environment as their responsibilities.
Thus, I envision businesses could take real contributions to vulnerabilities in society, cherish limited natural resources, etc., and value those actions even prior to profits, status, and power.
Due to the reality that businesses almost always choose to stand by interest when encountering environmental problems, laws and punishments are the most effective way to monitor their behaviors. In addition, government should take more frequent and detailed investigations of businesses, especially on accounting fraud and fake philanthropy. On the other hand, public acts such as boycotts will also have big aid in the systematic change of corporations.
I agree, we must hold businesses that thrive off of the explotation of natural resources accountable for their actions in a meaningful way. Even if corportations are discovered to violate enviornmental laws and such, the fines they recieve are minimal and hardly do anything.
I agree with you that we need to protect our environment more than ever in the current global warming situation. Companies should focus more on protecting the environment and maintaining sustainable development. We need to make reasonable use of our limited resources. Not only for our own sake but also to give the next generation better-living conditions.
Hi Bellie, I totally agree with you to promote the implementation of environmental policies and punishments. Carbon tax is a good example of environmental policy. I hope in the future, environmental policies can be implemented to different environmental issues, such as livestock methane pollution, water pollution, etc.
Business definitely would naturally gravitate towards the most profitable option, so I agree that laws and enforcements are necessary if we want businesses to focus more on a sustainable future. I think your point on how the government can do more frequent checks on the corporations is great!
Nowadays, businesses always like to do NOTHING under the banner of being sustainable for the environment. Your approach can be very effective in changing this reality. In addition to that, we need to prevent collusion between government and business and make all information transparent.
Hi Billie I really like your idea - I also agree that we need to strengthen environmental laws to actively and effectively monitor the companies' behaviours.
I share your envisions as well. I think one of the way we can really get through to the big companies is to properly track where finances are going. We also have a lot of power as citizens with being able to boycott companies and we should utilize this power more often.
I think that you have a great vision for the future! I would also love to see corporations moving towards honest, sustainable practices. Law making and policy regarding this kind of systematic change definitely seems like the way to go!
