Abstract

How will climate change, and personal, corporate, community, public sector and Governmental responses to it impact upon economic growth? Would more emphasis upon sustainability increase or depress economic growth? Much will depend upon creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, the scale and timing of adjustment, and the economic implications of substitutes and lifestyle and other changes. This article looks particularly at corporate responses, the role of boards and the relationship between boards, owners and other stakeholders, regulators and Governments. It suggests a variety of questions that directors could usefully consider.
