CATCH-UP: Evolution Not Revolution

Teaching business strategy in the era of climate change

Catch up with this De Gruyter online event, moderated by Richard Freeman.

A lively discussion between Dr Patricia Prado, Garry Carr, and Dr Andrew Grantham discussing topics such as:

  • How can students – our future entrepreneurs, innovators, business leaders – be effectively equipped in their understanding of climate change, and the consequences for business and society?
  • Which tools can be used in teaching strategy within the context of climate change?
  • How can case studies be used, and what else can educators do to reframe the conversations we have around climate change?

Business leaders are increasingly beginning to realise they must expand their focus beyond merely shareholder value and build a business that creates a sustainable shared value to all stakeholders, the communities they serve, and society at large.

How can businesses implement strategies that enable competitive growth and create shared value in a way that is truly sustainable during this era of climate change? What tools can analysts and strategists use to ensure sustainability is at the very core of business strategy?
