21 Feb Climate Change, Call For Action
Climate change can be described as a change in climate variables, in particular, things like temperature and rainfall. The changes occur progressively over a long period of time (50 to one hundred years), though recently it seems that we, human, have accelerated the latest change by abusing carbon emissions. Those emissions are largely due to fossil fuel consumption but not only. Climate change could also be powered by natural factors, like added aerosols from volcanic eruptions. Based on what we know, those natural fluctuations are not material in what we see in the form of climate change, known as global warming.
The role of human activity that leads to a rise in temperature is a complex mechanism but well understood. The results are however very concerning: Global warming leads to food supply issues, migration issues, health issues and many other social disasters.
Hence it is everyone’s responsibility to contain climate change, starting with businesses. Indeed businesses are typically the ones either creating the products that drive to creating carbon emissions and related issues. For example, car manufacturers are ultimately influencing consumers by the design of their cards. When cars are powered by fossil fuels then consumers do not really have a choice but to use the offered cars. One could argue that consumers have buying power and could influence product manufacturers. While this is often true it is better to tackle the problem at the root and prevent a sometimes unaware public on what best to do. As such, we, at Carbon-And-More call for action.
Also, businesses are consumers of other businesses’ products but can use their buying power influence to pressure the producer to abide by sustainability rules. Climate change is at stake, and much more.
As such, we, at Carbon-And-More call for action:
- Keep track of your carbon footprint.
- Reduce carbon emissions.
- Offset the remaining carbon emissions and get to carbon neutrality.
- Ask the same of your suppliers.
- Simply said: Do Your Bit.
