Survival of the most adaptable- how the recession can lead to a change for the better- Spring 2009 Q
Survival of the most adaptable- how the recession can lead to a change for the better: As the global recession sinks into becomming a global depression, and new financial measures such as 'quantitative easing' are brought in to try and stabilise markets, Judge Business School's podcast series has been talking to its academics to find out how business can best cope with the changing financial climate it now finds itself in. Boni Sones reports on this positive advice from the experts.
Climate leadership and business sustainability
We are creating a massive ecological debt by borrowing from the future at a rate that is completely incompatible and unsustainable. We need a new form of capitalism, one where we value the environment, business as usual is therefore not an option. Just what is climate leadership, how can it be implemented and what lessons can we learn from the financial dimension of sustainablity? Dr Stephen Peake explains.
Business, NGOs and the challenge of sustainability
Today's consumer driven culture is ecologically unsustainable; this fact poses a clear challenge to governments who must agree responses to climate change and other issues. But what role can business play? Jim Leape, Director General and Chief Executive of WWF International, explains how companies can help drive a shift to sustainability in their sectors and more broadly, the roles that NGOs can play in catalysing such a shift.
Laurie Newton talks about the need for local authorities to adapt to climate change and some of the resources which are available to help Local Authorities understand adaptation
