Brands…and Climate Change

A really interesting piece from Fast Company regarding ‘companies who’ve created the most climate change.” It also includes a ‘Usual Suspects’ style line-up shot. I first spoke about this key issues years ago when lecturing on an MBA course in London, and it’s extraordinary how, as FastCo puts it “just 90 companies produced two-thirds of the fossil fuels burned in the industrial era.”

The piece goes on to point out how we need to reframe our thinking about climate responsibility, and instead of governments, we should point a finger at the major corporations. “You can look at this as coming from seven billion people or two hundred countries – or you can look at it as coming from these institutions, the heads of which could all fit on a bus together.” Powerful stuff. Anyway, you can read the whole piece here:
