Carbon Governance, Climate Change and Business Transformation, Hardback Book

Carbon Governance, Climate Change and Business Transformation Hardback

Edited by Adam Bumpus, Blas Luis Perez Henriquez, Chukwumerije Okereke, James Tansey


Transformation to a low carbon economy is a central tenet to any discussion on the solutions to the complex challenges of climate change and energy security.

Despite advances in policy, carbon management and continuing development of clean technology, fundamental business transformation has not occurred because of multiple political, economic, social and organisational issues.

Carbon Governance, Climate Change and Business Transformation is based on leading academic and industry input, and three international workshops focused on low carbon transformation in leading climate policy jurisdictions (Canada, USA and the UK) under the international Carbon Governance Project (CGP) banner.

The book pulls insights from this innovative collaborative network to identify the policy combinations needed to create transformative change.

It explores fundamental questions about how governments and the private sector conceptualize the problem of climate change, the conditions under which business transformation can genuinely take place and key policy and business innovations needed.

Broadly, the book is based on emerging theories of multi-levelled, multi-actor carbon governance, and applies these ideas to the real world implications for tackling climate change through business transformation.

Conceptually and empirically, this book stimulates both academic discussion and practical business models for low carbon transformation.
