ITS EDUCATION ASIA ARTICLE


Driving change with career choice

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


An interesting and long overdue message from UN SG António Guterres which shows how we need ever more complex thinking about how to deal with the climate crisis.

In an address to graduates at a university in the US, Guterres appealed to them (watch here) not to work for companies whose work encourages the continued exploitation of fossil fuels. He did not limit this to the obvious – oil companies and so on – but also to those who facilitate them, particularly in the banking, financial and consulting sectors.

Corporations in these sectors are often the most aggressive at courting the best and brightest new graduate talent, so by critically analyzing the impact those corporations have on climate and then voting with your feet, you can begin to drive better climate oriented corporate work by starving bad actors of talent.
