The world’s corporations are bigger than ever, and their influence in today’s world is unprecedented. In an era where humans can transform nature but are also extremely vulnerable to natural changes, and where anthropogenic climate change is now incontrovertible, intensified human activity is driving us towards ecological disaster. Do we move to rein in corporate power and its environmental impact? Or should we empower corporations to find innovative solutions in our race against time?
