Nature and Context

As developed countries have turned to weightless services as the core of their economies, they may appear to have become greener. Yet many of the climate impacts of the goods that people consume are being generated in China, Vietnam, Brazil and Thailand. Tracking how these companies are green in reality, or rather not green in reality, can help keep them accountable, as well as provide consumers with information so they can make conscious decisions.
