Summary
For years, the corporate world resisted policies designed to protect the environment and, in some cases, even worked to stifle the debate over climate change. Now, facing pressure from governments, green groups, and investors alike, big business is promising to reshape its approach to ecological issues. In doing so it has helped to transform the politics of environmental stewardship. This episode of Frontline travels the globe to find out what powerful companies are really doing to solve what is widely viewed as one of the most urgent issues of our time
