Smaller environmental footprint will lead to greater profit in the long run is Mr. Duke's main point in this excerpt of ana interview Environmental sustainability is a narrow focus of the term ignoring the social - people - and prosperity elements, both of which Walmart plays a big role with a considerable impact on citizens. Walmart and Sam's Club employs roughly 2.2 million people worldwide and is the largest private employer in the United States.
In April, top CEOs and investors, pioneering entrepreneurs, environmental experts and policy makers convene at ECO:nomics, The Wall Street Journal’s conference in Santa Barbara, to discuss and debate the most critical issues facing leaders who are driving change at the intersection of business and the environment.
We will have large corporations with infrastructures that have a smaller ecological footoprint and institutional self-promotional statements and conferences such as ECO:nomics, but our future will remain unsustainable as the mind-set of what Dr. Chet Bowers refers to as "deep cultural assumptions that support the individualistic/industrial/consumer-dependent culture that is ecologically unsustainable" remains the driving force in our Society and at Walmart.

Using public monies to reduce carbon footprint, practice energy conservation, and raise the environmental awareness among citizens in Ireland. €9 billion is spent by the public sector on goods and services annually in Ireland! Dublin fireman Neil McCabe showed how with a little ingenuity, this money could result in environmentally friendly buildings and huge cost savings to the public sector but will local authorities and the government take notice.
Thats €100bn in spending in the next 10 years, shouldnt that money be spend on local, environmentally sound, clean products and services? Moving to a green economy is a low carbon economy.
It would save money and create jobs, so whats stopping us.

Hosted by Duncan Stewart, 'Take, make, Dispose' is how our current linear economic model is described. Take raw materials from the ground, make a product then dispose of it back into the ground. However, with the rapid rise of consumerism in the 20th century, we are now running out of raw materials and places to dispose of waste and thats not even mentioning the environmental damage caused in between.
The Circular Economy is more progressive, environmentally friendly and efficient economic model, one that mimics nature and where there is no such thing as waste.
The final programme of Eco Eye series 12 looks at the Circular Economy and meets Irish companies that are already preparing for this new economic model and we also speak to experts on the challenges and opportunities this new reality presents.
