Adapting to Change

Book Description

Get an inside look at how companies with cutting-edge sustainability programs are innovating in the face of extreme conditions related to climate change. Adapting to Change profiles the current efforts of Citi, Sprint, ConAgra, Stonyfield Farm, The Hartford, and IBM to improve climate resilience, with a focus on five themes: responding to weather; learning from disaster; doing more with less; taking a risk—and managing it; and communicating change, collaborating on climate. In these pages, readers will discover strategies that encourage resilience and mitigate risk across vastly different sectors, both internally—with managers and employees—and externally—through supply chains, in communities, among investors—with valuable insight for business professionals in all categories. Adapting to Change stresses pragmatic answers to real problems that companies encounter every day. It focuses on the challenges climate presents to the firms profiled and how each company—with the help of employees and other stakeholders—faces them head on. One in a collection of books curated by world-renowned business ethics expert Mary Gentile, this book illustrates how today’s sustainability leaders are using business acumen to find solutions—while cutting costs and creating new business opportunities—in a rapidly changing environment.
