Abstrakt Abstract:

Climate change is happening, presenting threats and opportunities for
society as a whole and business in particular. The transition to a low carbon
economy as a result of climate change offers opportunities for business; it
also represents an opportunity to create a more sustainable society. This
paper considers how a business response to the climate change challenge
can be used as a leverage to move towards sustainability. The focus is on
adaptation strategies adopted to address the threats and opportunities
presented by climate change. The tool for strategically planning for
adaptation, developed herein, seeks to ensure that measures taken by
business to adapt to climate change are also contributions towards a
sustainable future.
