Exploring the Reciprocal Relationship of Business and Climate Change?

Typically evaluated in business theory as part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) the reciprocal impacts of business and climate change are becoming significantly expanded; predicated by new generations of consumers and the greater awareness they bring of the effects consumption has on the environment and climate change, and ultimately “their future”.

The developed world for the last 50 years has seen the age of the corporate, organisations designed to maximise profit for their investors with few checks and balances on their behaviour and the consequences of their actions. However, climate change and related ecological challenges present new and fundamental challenges to business: local, national and global. But how can climate change be tackled when business communities typically focus on securing their survival and prosperity, at the expense of others? And what is the relevance of ‘ethical business ideologies’ in addressing the cutting edge challenges of climate change?

An introductory session that supports Level 3 Business specification content such as Business Management and Leadership, Choosing Strategic Direction, Operations and Marketing Decision Making. This Webinar sets a baseline for the innovative Business and Climate Change (BSc) Degree being delivered by Aberystwyth University from September 2020.

In this session, Andrew, Ian and Tim introduce perspectives that outline the opportunities and the challenges of this new normal!
