Management Scholars Ignore Capitalism Fueling Climate Change
 

Management researchers have long been in denial about climate change, and that capitalism itself is a key driver of global warming. “We are pushing climate change out of our field and trying not to deal with it," a researcher says.

 

"Bake sustainability into the brand, making it so much a part of what you do that anybody buying the company and trying to change it would hurt the bottom line, the value of the acquisition,” a researcher recommends.

 

Developing sustainable cities is the key to solving many of the United Nations’ 2030 goals about climate change, poverty, and inequality.

 

The primary goal of corporations—maximizing profits—is just one factor that prevents companies from leading the fight against climate change.

 

Researchers reveal how a logging company, an international forestry certifying agency, and a South American government enabled socially irresponsible practices that included allegations of gang rape, illegal mining, and pollution.
