For several years now I’ve felt that climate change is one of the main long-term risks facing business. At one point I even considered writing a book that would help companies prepare – involving the growing field of “climate resilience.” Now I’m glad I didn’t, as Jason West, an associate professor of finance at Griffith Business School in Brisbane, Australia, has – and it’s a better book than I would have written.
The Long Hedge: Preserving Organizational Value through Climate Change Adaptation (Greenleaf Publishing) is a thorough, detailed look at the organizational risks climate change and extreme weather pose (e.g. to supply chains, infrastructure, agricultural operations, etc.) and the steps companies can take to evaluate risks and prepare.
