The disclosure report indicates that Loblaw’s uses a specific climate change risk management approach where a boards of directors meet every six months or more to discus concerns.

The main focus to address pollution and global warming are reducing electricity usage, fuel consumption, refrigeration leaks and reduce waste (Michaud, 2015). Now, Walmart and Metro are also involved with the carbon disclosure project.

Globalization is defined as the development of an increasingly integrated global economy marked especially by free trade, free flow of capital, and the tapping of cheaper foreign labor markets (Merriam-Webster). It also can be looked at as how organizations have an impact internationally. When money is involved, so are politics. Due to the implementation of globalization around the world, developing economies saw a great increase in exporting cheaper goods, because they were opened to new markets (Collins). While these foreign nations benefited, much of the American population was at a disadvantage.
If they are not able to take care of the smaller community around them, how could they lead the world successfully? It might seem okay at first, but soon developments will slow down, stopping. A plan of making a better world backfires and eventually leaves the world crumbling apart slowly. In relation to this is how poverty causes environmental issues. Another huge problem of the world are environment issues like global warming and pollution.

Fresh water is valuable and reducing the amount of water in the Lakes wouldn’t help keep our basin remain water rich. In the article, Mideast Facing Chocie Between Crops and Water by Andrew Martin, He says “For decades nations in this region have drained aquifers, sucked the salt from seawater and diverted the mighty Nile to make the deserts bloom. But those projects were so costly and used so much water that it remained far more practical to import food than to produce it. Today, some countries import 90 percent or more of their staples.” The nations that Martin is talking about is the Middle East and North Africa where the people there are suffering between growing more crops or preserving water of what they have
One of the main reasons for the cause of climate changes is greenhouse gas emission. “Current emissions are several times higher than the sustainable level, and increasing.”(Randers, 2008) The climate has been having drastic changes due to the amount of burning fossil fuels and deforestation that deteriorates the ozone layer and changes the global temperature. The reduction of greenhouses is possible, but even if we stop man-made emissions tomorrow it would still take about a hundred years until the emissions levels ware able to arrive to the pre-industrial levels because of the inertia in the global system. (Randers,
The fast improvement of mankind renders an awful impact on Earth. One of these impacts is environmental change. It is not a mystery that several many years prior, the atmosphere on Earth was colder than now. Numerous researchers caution about what is called a dangerous global warming, or a procedure of a steady increase of the yearly temperature over the entire planet (dictionary.com). Amusingly, its flow was recorded in the last quarter of the 20th century, and since that time the normal temperature had expanded by 0.7° (Freanz 237).
He cares about how the amount of greenhouse gases has began to increase over the past couple of years. The largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in the United States is from burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation. We are depleting the Earth of its natural resources and no one except for the few eager environmentalists is ready to take charge in it because the government says global warming and climate change doesn’t seem exist in their eyes. There is a old saying that Friedman probably didn’t think of, “Beware of the quiet ones”, The quiet ones can be the most deadly and the most forward. They can make or break you.
