The authors provide key pointers to business in a comprehensive overview of factors to consider when formulating appropriate and effective responses to climate change. Appropriate corporate climate change responses are vital.To this end, the authors provide an overview of South African media publications which highlights not only the imperative for a corporate response to climate change, but also the change in paradigm faced by business. Here, the reader is drawn into the most current corporate climate change debate through printed media excerpts and accompanying corresponding graphics and photos. The book continues with an intriguing report on an empirical study conducted on the web database of the newspaper Business Day. Findings point to the most important climate change topics of discussion in specifically the corporate environment over the last 11 years. The local Business Day frequency search is also positioned in an international context with similar searches conducted in the Wall Street Journal, the London Financial Times and the Australian Financial Review.In conclusion, the book offers a method of corporate climate change response benchmarking, reporting and accounting via a corporate climate change response ""checklist"" and a description of its use by various corporate stakeholders.
