The world at large is well aware of the noxious effects of climate change and it is the due season that the industries themselves step in to fuel the fight against this maleficent development, which was unwittingly triggered by their proliferation.

A lot has already been done and a lot more is in talks, however, we at the London School of Business believe that there is still a tad scope of further research into the problem. Therefore, we have concluded that in order to tackle the challenges of climate change, our society needs to change the way it produces and consumes. Although, there is still a considerable gap in studies investigating the relationship between society and climate change, however, the efforts, in particular, will only add value to the greater course.

Small-scale changes involving experimental forms of producing, consuming and economizing differently will have a positive impact on climate change. The following measure can help in docking the dominant form of high carbon capitalist economy:

Free Stores

Development of stores where the excess or waste of supermarkets is given away for free. This cannot be counted into the CSR initiatives of those supermarkets. One such store is already operating in the UK under the name ‘The real junk project’, which prepares tasty meals from supermarket waste.

The world needs more of these stores in order to curb two major things i.e. climate change and hunger deaths.

There are numerous other measures such as barter exchange of services, repair cafes and many more. Although, the scale of these initiatives is relatively small, however, are a necessary first step to try out alternative models ahead of a larger-scale transformation. It is high time that alongside sales and revenue targets, industries chase climate targets as well. Ecological sustainability needs to be put above profit margins.
