This case offers two opposite perspectives – the glass half full that through global collaboration and belief in scientific evidence of the ozone layer, that societies, governments and businesses collaborated globally to take action to reduce it.
The glass half empty view is that despite evidence little is being done to stop climate change and global collaboration seems far away as evidenced by the lack of action to keep to Paris Agreement aims.
This case is part of a mini-series focused on business and society that challenges participants to consider the lessons of various events and examples and how they can apply the learning to their own context. In this case the learning objectives are:
- Is it possible collaborate on climate change to avert it?
- What needs to happen to encourage global collaboration?
