According to their website, Carbon Nation s a documentary movie about climate change solutions. Even if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don’t buy it at all, this is still a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how solutions to climate change also address other social, economic and national security issues. There are a host of entertaining and endearing characters along the way as well.
Carbon Nation is an optimistic, solutions-based, non-preachy, non-partisan, big tent film that shows tackling climate change boosts the economy, increases national & energy security and promotes health & a clean environment. Public opinion is sliding the wrong way – far fewer people are concerned about climate change than even a year ago. They’ve made Carbon Nation to give a majority of people an entertaining, informed and pragmatic primer about why it’s incredibly smart to be a part of the new, low-carbon economy: it’s good business. Carbon Nation’s optimism and pragmatism are appealing across the political spectrum. While other good films have been about problems, blame and guilt, Carbon Nation is a film that celebrates solutions, inspiration, and action.
The main reason why I am so enthusiastic about this film is because sustainability is not just solely about climate change, greenhouse gases, and global warming. As stated before there are many other social, economic and national security issues that are of focus. When relating to business and economics, companies can be more focused on efficiency, social good, and productivity, which would be of more value to their customers and ethic principles. Being an environmental aware company that focuses on these issues will only reduce costs and drive up profits, potentially boosting the economy. When organizations question being sustainable or going green, my thought is why wouldn’t you?! For more thoughts read “Corporate Sustainability – Redefining the Future of Business.”
