Andrew Hoffman, Ph.D., Holcim Professor, Sustainable Enterprise, University of Michigan. An Oppenheim Lecture

The Business of Climate Change

Thursday, February 19, 2009
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Los Angeles, CA 90095

According to scientists, climate change is one of the most pressing environmental issues of our day.  But for business, it represents something altogether different; it represents a market shift.  In this talk, Professor Hoffman will discuss the market implications of climate change for business; why companies should be paying to the issue and what they can do about it; not as a call to corporate social responsibility, but as a concern of strategic importance to the future of the firm.
