Location: 
Santiago, Chile

Pictures of Beijing’s skyline under “Red Alert” levels of pollution flooded the internet in late 2015. The government, in response, shut down hundreds of factories and canceled hundreds of flights – an action not at all surprising to western business leaders who regularly deal with environment-related disruptions.
