I am not sure why I was surprised, but I noted with interest the cover of the April edition of the Harvard Business Review, which features an article titled, The Resilient Company; How to Thrive in a Warmer World. An excerpt follows:
Though companies today face many global-scale challenges—from destabilizing demographic shifts to the threat of financial system collapse—extreme weather caused by climate change and increasing limits on resources are both having an unprecedented impact, threatening corporate profits and global prosperity. These “megachallenges” will require companies to fundamentally rethink their strategies and tactics.
To manage them, all parts of society—government and public institutions, the private sector, and citizens—must act in concert. But business, with its financial and material resources and unique innovativeness and talent, must lead the way.
As you would expect, the article provides a sophisticated discussion and analysis aimed at business leaders. I recommend it.
I just started reading a new book called Windfall that shows how companies are profiting from climate change. Highly recommended…
Thanks for the recommendation. I usually pay attention primarily to public sector documents. It would be good to know more about what the private is and plans to do.
