L0700-SS-BUSINESS-ORGANIZATIONS
Business organizations have been one of the most important drivers of socio-economic progress over the last 200 years. They have responded to profit motivation but not so much to the issue of the associated environmental degradation. Business organizations more than any other segment of the socio-enviro-economic system must change to make the world a better place.

L0700-SS-CLIMATE
The risks associated with climate change are being ignored by too many important decision makers in part because they are not being accounted for in an effective way.
Open L0700-SS-CLIMATE
L0700-SS-CLIMATE-CHANGE-GHG
Though there is more understanding now than in, say 2010, of the vital importance of GHG in the atmosphere in relation to climate instability, the scale of the risk is still not fully appreciated.

L0700-SS-CONSTRAINTS
Good ideas are often stopped by constraints. Remove constraints and amazing results can be achieved. Quite small constraints can mean failure of otherwise good projects.

PROCESSES THAT HAVE ENABLED PRUDUCTIVITY SO THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT CONSTAINED BY THE AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS

ALL THE PROCESSES
THE IMPACT OF ACTIVITIES / STREAMS / SECTORS

These are responsible for the amazing improvement in quality of life and standard of living over the past 200 years, and also responsible for the degradation of the environment. The efficiency of these are the key to a better world.
The efficiency of a process is a key determinant of the efficacy of a product. Too many products are being made using processes that are low in financial cost, but high in social and environmental cost.
