Generation green

Why green consumerism and the brands that facilitate it, are so important for the health of both the economy and our environment.

For years, our capitalist society has seen economic growth and development as being insoluble with the ideas of conservation and environmental protection. Indeed, the established consensus amongst businesses for generations, has been that if you want to increase productivity and make more money, you must use more natural resources and energy. This outmoded paradigm so often means increasing the negative impact businesses have on the environment in order for them to expand.

The issue with this traditional model, is that eventually, businesses will run out of the natural resources they require to make their products, and they will inevitably collapse. If all businesses continue to work like this, you not only end up with an economy in pieces but a heavily compromised natural environment.  This both cripples people financially and leaves them at greater risk of environmental catastrophes.

This is where the solution of green growth comes in. Green growth is the idea that you can foster economic growth and development, while simultaneously ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which businesses and our well-being relies. This means working to create a symbiosis between environment and economy, which results in both being protected for the future.

An example of an investment in green growth, would be a company adapting their packaging so that it is made from sustainable materials. This not only helps the environment by preventing further ravaging effects on finite resources but ensures that the business has a packaging strategy which is economically and environmentally viable for years to come.

MainstreamCorporation Practice

Sadly, the majority of large corporations don’t see green growth as a viable option, electing instead to employ a more short-sighted ‘cross that bridge when we come to it’ mentality. The problem with this is that these corporations have an unbelievably significant role in how the global environment is treated. This includes how waterways are used, how emissions are controlled and what materials are stripped from the natural world. Their power extends also to the actual percentage of our world which is given over to manufacturing and industrialisation.

To give you some perspective on the influence of global corporations on our environment, a study from 2017 found that just 100 energy companies have been responsible for 71% of all industrial emissions since human-driven climate change was officially recognized. Another example to indicate the scale of their impact, comes from a study from the NRDC, which revealed that Procter andGamble, an American paper company, produce 17.8 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year, converting forests into paper products.

Perhaps even more insidious, is that corporations know that appearing environmental damaging is bad for business. But instead of rethinking the way they produce their products, they spend millions on PR campaigns which try and persuade people that they are friendly to the environment, even though they have either done nothing to change their behaviour, or achieved the bare minimum to back up their claims. This is a phenomenon known as ‘Green Washing’, where companies try and spin their practices as eco-friendly so that customers will continue to buy their products despite negative press.
