Abstract

Growing stakeholder concern over the environment and climate change and the global nature of related challenges and opportunities have implications for directors and raise a variety of issues that boards should address, including the adequacy of governance arrangements and contribution to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. In regard to climate resilient smart cities, sustainable energy supply choices, pollution prevention, waste and water management, green growth and market solutions, there is scope for creative strategies, innovation and collective as well as corporate action. Collaborative responses also raise issues that any organisations involved need to address. This Theme paper is designed to raise questions for directors and boards and encourage thinking ahead of the 21st World Congress on Environment Management and Climate Change. The exercise of environmental leadership may simultaneously achieve multiple objectives, including rebuilding reputation, trust and inter-generational rapport and ensuring a better and healthier future.
