Climate change poses a serious threat to the continuity and prosperity of organizations: serious disruption in business activities and a permanent cut in output. This important book explains how organizations can: reduce their exposure to direct threats; improve their efficiency; and learn how to gain from shifts in the way their markets operate. In a clear, informative style it explores: techniques for identifying climate risks and systems for managing them; how to prepare for contingencies caused by extreme weather changes; options for controlling emissions and improving resource efficiency; how to find alternative sources of energy and minimize waste; smarter working practices, flexible travel plans and greener buildings; and how an innovative response can strengthen the brand.These greener cars include the Toyota Prius, Honda Civic Hybrid, Ford Fusion and Renault Megane. Recent research found that a fleet of 50 green cars would cost more upfront but would reap dramatic cost savings in the long-term.
