A Shifting Focus on Climate Change

Read the full story at Waste360.

I recently attended an ESG conference for investors.  What an eye-opener! Most of the attendees were from the U.S, with a few from Canada and Europe.  During the first session of the morning, someone asked, perhaps rhetorically, why many Americans do not seem to be interested in climate change. It was a provocative start to the day; and the questioner had a valid point. Based on questions asked throughout the remainder of the conference, attendees seemed more interested in financial projections and performance than in the implications of climate change.

This is not the case everywhere. In fact, there are valid reasons why European countries, in particular, are more intently focused on climate change than we are in the U.S. Importantly, it is also clear that awareness and attention on climate action in the U.S. is increasing.  So – let’s explore the differences – and why attitudes are shifting related to climate change in the U.S.
