ABSTRACT
The article presents a business-related admonition in Great Britain. Such admonition involves the impact of climate change on business operations. Ignorance to low carbon economy is observed in several business organizations, which caused them to wait longer before they act against climate change. Companies, regardless of size, are admonished to achieve reduction of at least 60% of carbon dioxide by 2050. However, a more dramatic decarbonization is expected if there is no immediate action.
