Public panning a single-edged sword: On the one hand, in the struggle for more climate protection, sharp, on the other stump Fridays for the Future, now have to think about it, to wield it against the corporate world, because the policy is too lame. The Siemens case seems to be in the movement as a success, but he is not: He shows that the General Public can also fizzle out.

Each of the companies deal with reputational risk, so that your brand loses its luster, and thus value, because it is associated with smut. This may not be fatal, but The sales figures of VW are great, although the group has cheated on mass clients. In any case, climate protection in times of continual protests for more climate protection, shortage of on the list of reputational risk at the top.

When angry students demonstrate in front of the gate, if the employees will have to justify themselves at the dinner to their children, in what for a shit load of work, if the top management of the group itself plagues the Conscience – all of which brings what. Especially when the Protest only already existing Knowledge on climate smut gives a stage. Know that NGOs decades of painstaking work, have researched.

The list of those who deserve it, is long, very long – in the end, Fridays for Future can hold, at most, show processes.

In the game the Fridays are a factor that accelerates the change, in the laws harder to change companies, and in turn, tougher laws are required. But, they will work against a globally active company, not a miracle.
