A good example to show the watchdog role played by the NGO Greenpeace in exposing and bringing to task the wrongdoings of MNCs like Wilmar which are engaging in business practices that are harmful to Mother Nature.....Exposing such deeds, esp in the media, applies pressure on these errant MNCs to clean up their deeds and toe the line by threatening them with the punitive measures of the law, or more importantly, via tarnishing their image and inciting consumer boycotts that will hurt their profit margins....

Note that environmental responsibility is split among four major players: the govt, the business sector, the consumers, and the NGOs.

Qns: 
1. Assess the view that attempts to control climate change can never be truly effective. (Cam. 2017)
2. 'The sole objective of doing business is profit maximization.' Discuss.
