018: Enron Environmentalism
I coined the term Enron Environmentalism to explain the gap between what people say they value about the environment and what they do.
If you’re an American, you probably practice Enron Environmentalism. Sadly, it’s the opposite of self-awareness and integrity, as this episode of the podcast shows.
Learning the opposite will improve your leadership, your life, and as a side effect, your environmental impact.
Here are the articles I mention:
- My Inc. article: Are You an Enron Environmentalist?
- From Energy Policy Journal: Does pro-environmental behaviour affect carbon emissions?
- From Environment and Behavior Journal: Good Intents, but Low Impacts: Diverging Importance of Motivational and Socioeconomic Determinants Explaining Pro-Environmental Behavior, Energy Use, and Carbon Footprint
Enjoy the episode.
