Summary
Climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity; a definitive manifestation of the well-worn links between progress and devastation. This book explores the complex relationship that the corporate world has with climate change, and examines the central role of corporations in shaping political and social responses to the climate crisis. The book's principal message is that despite the need for dramatic economic and political change, corporate capitalism continues to rely upon the maintenance of 'business as usual'. The authors explore the different processes through which corporations engage with climate change. Key discussion points include climate change as business risk; corporate climate politics; the role of justification and compromise; and managerial identity and emotional reactions to climate change. Written for researchers and graduate students, this book moves beyond descriptive and normative approaches to provide a sociologically and critically informed theory of corporate responses to climate change.--
