(HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO CHANGE? ARE YOU PROACTIVE?)
eg 1.Richard Branson-CO2 reduction to be compliant with the regulations,
eg 2.UNILEVER

3. Wait and See (do nothing, but potentially might be too catastrophic, we might take too many risks and loose the licence to operate, if we do nothing)
4. Show and Tell
5. Pay for Principle (certain values that you are prepared to pay for)


Level of compliance:

Resource efficiency
Water pollution

Strategic options:
“The Law is a Floor”- meaning we are doing the minimum to avoid breaking the law.

But with climate change, we are proactive, we are doing more than “the floor”. Think ahead of the Law. Because certain regulations are moving towards a certain direction.
