Video - Business Needs to do More to Reduce Emissions - Godot Paralysis


In this Oct 18, 2013 video, Christiana Figueres, the executive secretary of the UN framework convention said that Businesses are not doing enough to reduce their emissions and they cannot wait for policy perfection (Godot Paralysis). We have no other option but to move forward, we need to show courage. We need to invest in green technologies which could provide growth and jobs. We need moral courage, it is not just about governments taking the lead. We must stand up and assume our responsibilities. The consequences of continuing to burn fossil fuels are known, everyone who does not address this is abdicating their responsibilities to a much more stable productive future.
