Although there is broad empirical understanding on the need for action to avoid global warming and potential ecological calamity, it would undoubtedly prove more intricate than it expected to be to establish and enforce global warming policies. Emerging economies face as much as 10 per cent losses in working hours because of deteriorating thermal conditions in the workplace due to climate change, according to a new report. The reasons are the complexity of the danger and the extreme conflict between the danger and the types of issue which democratic governments usually face. The greenhouse effect in particular presents significant challenges for the mechanisms for creating a community and for having developed industrial economies able to compromise. This article explores facets of global warming policy at international level and discusses some of the main environmental, political, and social dimensions of industrial democracies' reaction to the challenge of global warming to date. Overall, I try to make it clear with this article and make it clear that climate change leads to heat stress in the world of work must be tackled, above all, by promoting occupational safety and health, social dialogue, and structural transformation in agriculture, and by encouraging the development of responsible and sustainable, or “green”, businesses. An integrated approach was also taken in 2019 by the Global Commission on the Future of Work, which highlighted the need for a universal labor guarantee that includes health and safety standards in all places of work.
