MANAGING CLIMATE CHANGE BUSINESS RISKS AND CONSEQUENCES: LEADERSHIP FOR GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY
JAMES A.F. STONER, Fordham University, and CHARLES WANKEL,
St. John’s University, Editors
Chapter proposals are invited for the next volume in the Stoner/Wankel Palgrave Macmillan Series on Global Sustainability through Business. This volume focuses on risk-management and climate change. It addresses the role businesses and their support environment – government, not-for-profits, the media, etc. – are currently playing and can consider playing in the future to deal with the impacts of climate change.
The basic themes of this volume are that:
(1) climate change is already having major impacts on business, business is having major impacts on climate change, and these impacts continue to grow;
(2) risk management is a valuable way of framing climate change issues and for grappling with the consequences of climate change;
(3) the key players involved in managing the risks associated with climate change have learned valuable ways to protect themselves and others that all businesses can learn from, and
(4) 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 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 – that 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.
