Tackling Climate Change Globally: An Analysis of United Kingdom and Pakistan

Today, the most challenging and serious environmental issue facing by the human being is climate change. The report by the Stern Journal reviews the economy effected by the changing climate that how this will seriously affect the life of people globally.

As the population is growing rapidly, researchers with respect to the potential effects of environmental change, enterprises are under expanding pressure from financial specialists, governments and natural associations to lessen their greenhouse gas emanations from their procedures, items and administrations. Despite, this brings pressure for changes starting with one nation then onto the next and crosswise over industrial segments.


The greenhouse gas emissions per capita in Pakistan is the 1/7th of the emission per capita in UK. Whereas, in UK the GDP per capita is many times more than per capita in Pakistan.

The article by the Business strategies and the Environment explains the strategies multinational companies adopting to tackle the changing climate at various divisions in Pakistan and UK. An analysis depends on the current wr iting by Environmentalists to investigate and depict the genuine instances of corporate exercises identified with environmental change. This system is utilized to explore the environmental change techniques crosswise over maj or modern parts in the two countries, utilizing the exact information from the study of 180 organizations. While, analyzing 9 important vitality concentrated and greenhouse gas producing parts, it also explains the impact s of guideline and size on business reaction to such environmental change problems.

In 2005, there were global efforts by the Kyoto Protocol to limit the green house gas emissions through the 3 flexible methods, namely Kyoto mechanics, which incorporates; Joint execution, Emissions Trading and the Clean Development Mechanisms. These techniques furnish developed countries with ease o f use and structure for pursuing and supporting the developing nations for meeting their commitments for reduction of greenhouse gases.

There`s a big difference in the economic development of both analyzed countries, Pakistan and UK, so there`s difference in their greenhouse gas emission and climate change policies as well. The greenhouse gas emissions per capita in Pakistan is the 1/7th of the emission per capita in UK. Whereas, in UK the GDP per capita is multiple times more than per capita in Pakistan. Till the 1994, there were no active policies made for the climate change related activities in Pakistan, whereas in compared to UK, they were the leading player in the formation of international policies on the issue.

In the analysis, about 180 organizations in which 108 from UK and 72 from Pakistan were analyzed in the research, with the response rate of 12.7%. The above average organizations were from the sectors including Chemical, Auto motive, and Cement. While, below average sectors includes paper industry, textile and food and drink sectors. The analysis for the said companies was based on the Managerial activities and Operational activities for the evaluations. In the research process, the operational activities were grouped in to two different activities; internal and external activities.

Some internal activities, are the process modifications, comprise of better housekeeping, substitutions for high energy expending machine with energy productivity machines. While, the external exercises incorporate shaping innovation and research partnerships with different organizations, agreements with different organizations, contracts with administrative bodies and support in deli berate activities. The alpha value of 0.747 for internal activities and 0.5 84 for the external activities.

In the same way, management activities were also grouped into two groups, which includes Climate & Energy management and Greenhouse Gas management. The Climate and Energy related exercises incorporates by having climate changing policies, improvement of EMS, ISO14001 affirmation, and bench-marking with different associations to set energy productivity targets. Greenhouse gas managing exercises involve getting ready Greenhouse Gas stock, detailing Greenhouse Gas emanations openly, taking an interest for setting focuses to decrease greenhouse gas outflows, assigning duty regarding overseeing environmental change issues and assessing new ventures based on greenhouse gas discharges.

This research has demonstrated that MNCs reaction for environmental change can be depicted for Pakistan and the UK on a consistent measure in 4 classes: Indifferent, Beginners, Emerges, and Activists.
