Sustainable Consumption (Current Controversies) (Paperback)
With the threat of climate change looming over the present, many consumers and companies have prioritized minimizing their environmental impact through making more sustainable choices. This volume examines the role that individual consumption plays in climate change, and how companies have attempted to become more sustainable and the effectiveness of these practices. Readers will evaluate whether countries and local municipalities should regulate consumption, and if it is even possible to change consumption practices enough to meaningfully impact climate change. Through reading opposing perspectives on these questions, readers will become better equipped to form their own intelligent opinions on these important issues.
