In Australia, there are only a small number of companies using L&D initiatives and energy efficient policies to address climate change, according to Christopher Wright, Professor of Organisational Studies at the University of Sydney Business School, and author of the book Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations: Processes of Creative Self-destruction.

Indeed, these companies are generally focused on climate change as a risk and as an opportunity, he told L&D Professional.

This is in terms of issues such as regulatory risk, carbon pricing and market risk in terms of disruptive technology (move to renewables), reputational risk (changing public perceptions of climate change and the impact for their investments or products), not to mention employee attitudes, he said.
