Speaker Tom Stewart discusses eco-friendly business opportunities in this sustainability talk. He talks about climate change and reducing the carbon footprint from big businesses. Stewart talks about a study that was done back in 2003 that examined auto companies to see which would suffer in a carbon-constrained world. The results showed that many of these companies would be facing huge losses if faced with carbon constraint.
Stewart talks about dealing with climate change, and states that the same rules apply to businesses. He says that there can be mitigation to try and prevent it, adaptation and suffering. He claims that the more businesses try to mitigate and adapt to a carbon-constrained world, the less they will suffer.
Business sustainability now depends on companies looking at ways to reduce their contributions to global warming, and mitigate their carbon footprints.
