Editorial Reviews

Review

...explores a critical management challenge and offers authoritative counsel and practical insight... Excellent read for anyone who wants to understand the basics of climate change and how to manage the challenge from the ground up. --Green Business

Short enough to read on your next transcontinental or international flight...read it, have your management team read it, and then decide what your company needs to do to stay ahead in the game. --The Green Skeptic

In the 97-page book the authors smartly project that regulations that raise the cost of emissions are beginning to affect how businesses operate. --Environmental Leader

...an excellent read...tailored for time-starved executives...tackles climate change as the business issue that it has fast become. --Green Business, May 2008<br /><br />Chief executives can no longer brush off concerns about climate change but need to start figuring out how global warming -- and regulations intended to curtail it -- will affect their businesses. --Reuters, April 24, 2008<br /><br />Andrew Hoffman and John Woody's new business book...tells corporations and businesses to get out from under the desk. It's time to start counting carbon. --CBCnews.ca, May 21, 2008

Format: Hardcover
Don't waste time debating the science of global warming argue Andrew J. Hoffman and John G. Woody in this slim volume, part of the Memo to the CEO series. Instead, think about how climate change can harm your company or give you a business edge. The authors build a compelling case that addressing climate change is the right thing to do - from a fiduciary perspective. They look at the impact of global warming and describe concrete actions corporate leaders should consider. Their guide covers the regulatory and scientific basics of climate change and offers real-world examples of companies responding to this threat. Hoffman and Woody talk directly to executives and managers about this daunting challenge.

Had to report for a class. Has become irrelevant in 2012+, while it provides a guide directed at CEO/Business leaders, its recommendations are so basic, any CEO/ C level, or any level of senior management should have a comprehension of what this book is recommending. Intro to GHG based sustainability. Academic purposes only.
