About this book

Climate change can have major impacts on business (and business can have major impacts on climate change). Risk management is a valuable way of framing climate change issues and for grappling with the possible consequences of climate change. The key players involved in managing the risks associated with climate change have learned a lot about how to protect themselves and others that all businesses can learn from, and those same key players are taking and can take ever-more valuable steps in the future not only to protect themselves and others from the negative consequences of climate change, but also to reduce and reverse the impact of the driving forces that are creating climate change.

Although the title of this volume, Managing Climate Change Business Risks and Consequences, and its major focus will be on one major aspect of global sustainability – climate change – this volume continues with the overall framing of the series: global sustainability is a multi-faceted, global, multi-generational, economic, social, environmental, and cultural phenomenon and challenge to our species – a challenge we must meet on behalf of all generations and all species.
