The need for governance
Despite recent issues with unreliable research, climate change is a major challenge for modern society. Government, business and the wider society are all affected and have the responsibility for tackling the problem.
While there is a trickle down of ‘environmental consciousness’ in the business community (thank Al Gore), the Boardroom has, in general, been more focussed on cost as a consequence of energy usage rather than the wider climate issues. Even then the full impact of future energy shortages and legislation is not well understood or given the focus it needs.
