About this book

Climate change has had a significant impact globally, predominantly for those vulnerable to its influence. The first book of its kind, The Climate Resilient Organization assesses the issues that have mounted for decision-makers in the field, whilst providing strategies to tackle them.

With a particular focus on building climate-resilient pathways for private sector organisations, the expert authors offer practical tools and decision-making criteria for evaluating adaptation needs, costs and benefits. Split into two parts The Climate Resilient Organization begins with an analysis of the subject on a global scale; it continues by translating the science surrounding it whilst presenting it in a manner suited to local decision-makers.

Sustainability and climate adaptation scholars as well as managers will equally find The Climate Resilient Organization to be an insightful read. Government officers and risk management professionals will also find the topics discussed beneficial to their work.

"Drawing together understandings from science and business around the increasingly important concept of resilience, this book provides managers, academics and practitioners with important ideas that will help business prepare for the future. It provides much needed detail on the challenges that climate change poses for organisations and make essential reading for anyone interested in sustainable business."
