The Slovenian Kyoto obligation Measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions

The Slovenian Kyoto obligation Measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – the paper finds that climate change and greenhouse gas emissions mitigation policies are environmental issues of significant importance. The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that helps to regulate the temperature of our planet, however, through our interference with the carbon cycle (burning fossil fuels), we artificially move carbon from solid storage to its gaseous state, thereby increasing atmospheric concentrations and consequently intensifying the greenhouse effect, which warms our planet. Practical implications – The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Strategic Direction Emerald Publishing

The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that helps to regulate the temperature of our planet, however, through our interference with the carbon cycle (burning fossil fuels), we artificially move carbon from solid storage to its gaseous state, thereby increasing atmospheric concentrations and consequently intensifying the greenhouse effect, which warms our planet. Practical implications – The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.
