By November 13, 2019 No Comments

Perspectives on Mogul News are a curated selection of stories from the world’s leading publishers, giving you more than one side of the story on important issues that face us, and society as a whole.

In this week’s Perspective, we look at what role businesses play in combating climate change. Here’s a quick note from our editor to give you an overview.

The world is burning. The Amazon experienced one of its worst wildfire seasons this year. Australia is battling raging bush fires. California burned just last month. Climate change is not just increasing the risk of fires but catastrophic weather events of all kinds.

Governments are trying to tackle the issue. The Paris Agreement has highlighted the need to keep global warming beneath 2C. It does not look like nation-states can fulfil their commitments.

Industries around the world pump massive amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. But private companies may also be able to solve the climate crisis.

Can carbon markets make it worthwhile for firms to invest in cleaner technology? Or can clean-tech startups help save the world? Investigate the climate crisis, where it came from and where it might lead before delving into whether or not private industry is part of the problem or necessary to solve it.
