Sustainability or greenwash: What role can business play in effective climate change response?
Speaker: Professor Christopher Wright

The University of Sydney Business School would like to offer you an opportunity to join Christopher Wright, Professor of Organisational Studies and leader of the Balanced Enterprise Research Network (BERN), to explore organizational and societal responses to climate change.

Climate change is the greatest challenge facing humanity this century and business corporations are central to this issue. As the engines of the modern global economy, corporations are key contributors to the production of greenhouse gas emissions. However, they are also central to the technological innovation necessary to decarbonize our energy and transportation systems and developing ways of adapting to climate changes already in train. We thus urgently need business leaders who understand the climate crisis and can lead the transformation towards a low-carbon future.

Professor Christopher Wright would outline his research into business responses to climate change and the entrenched model of a ‘fossil fuels forever’ imaginary. He will explore how we have come to our current political impasse on climate change and also explore future options, specifically the need for a reimagined role for business as leaders of a more sustainable model of social and economic development.
