Green Capitalism or Environmental Justice? A Critique of the Sustainability Discourse
The sustainability discourse has been appropriated by neo-liberal
capitalism. It is driving a key feature of capital’s response to the ecological
crisis: the commodification of nature. This involves the transformation
of nature and all social relations into economic relations, subordinated
to the logic of the market and the imperatives of profit.The immediate
outcome is the deepening of both social and environmental injustice.
