Summary

How Business Can Fight Climate Change captures the perspectives, insights, and ideas of 35 of the world's greatest thought and action leaders, addressing the increasingly alarming global challenges of a world where carbon emissions are out of control. It provides an easy-to-understand guide for every business leader and company on how they can play a more proactive role in addressing this serious threat to the global system—the very system they depend on and thrive in.

Through no-holds-barred conversations, influential figures, experts, and activists candidly share their aspirations and inspire the private sector to take up the fight over these next few critical years and decades. They provide suggestions and share best practices, demonstrating how forward-thinking, globally minded entrepreneurs, executives, and innovators are leading the way on this front and working in parallel to and in collaboration with governments, philanthropic institutions, and other stakeholders.

How Business Can Fight Climate Change underscores the role, power, and responsibility of the private sector to lend a hand and contribute to global welfare—not just from an altruistic perspective but from a self-preservation and sustainability perspective as well. It argues that if the private sector doesn't come to the table, the world will fail to overcome the crisis it is currently facing; public policy and government funding alone cannot replace the private sector playing its part. A failure to act in the corporate world will put our industries and economies, and ultimately our livelihoods and lives, at risk.

Amid the bad news, How Business Can Fight Climate Change offers a glimpse of hope: There is, in fact, light at the end of the tunnel. It highlights countless examples of companies and individuals doing their share to slow down and even reverse the damage of climate change. It also showcases many exciting innovations that usher in a new generation of conscientious and impactful practices that make winning this fight no longer a pipe dream but a real possibility. From new solutions that offset carbon emissions to viable funding resources for clean energy, there are many reasons to be optimistic.

Still, the disastrous impact of climate change is perhaps the greatest challenge of our lifetime, significantly greater than COVID, both in terms of complexity and what's at stake. Ultimately, it is a problem that requires no less than an all-hands-on-deck, collaborative approach that includes companies, governments, institutions, and individuals.

How Business Can Fight Climate Change is a timely call to action and a practical blueprint for how the world can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to avoid a climate catastrophe. It sends an overdue and urgent message to every businessperson and company that inhabits and plans to continue inhabiting planet Earth.
