AOM Scholars on...Leading the Sustainable Way Forward
A warming planet creates a wide range of risks for businesses, from disrupted supply chains to labor challenges to increasing investor demands, worker alienation and other operational impacts. Plus, the United Nations announced in 2021 that 80 million jobs would be at risk if rising temperature predictions materialize, with productivity impacted by unlivable working environments.
Couple these challenges with the fact that global governments have been historically slow to enact regulations and policies to help improve the growing climate challenge, non-government organizations (NGOs), sustainability experts and workers at large are increasingly calling on firms to step up and help provide sustainable solutions.
With this reality, just how can firms lead sustainably and be part of the solution to climate change?
To answer this question, join AOM Scholars as they share their expertise and research-based insights for a discussion on how firms can “lead the sustainable way forward.” AOM’s SME panelists will provide insights on ways in which firms can foster effective, profit-driven organizations while simultaneously practicing corporate accountability and leading sustainable growth.
The panel will also feature discussion regarding:
- Growing and maintaining sustainable cultures and organizational buy-in
- Employee well-being and creating sustainable work cultures
- Encouraging sustainable practices among employees
- Employee and leader activism
- Attracting and maintaining talent with climate goals
- Profits versus ethical behavior
- Measuring CSR in firms
- Achieving corporate sustainability goals
- Social enterprise
- The corporation’s role in CSR amid government stagnation on climate initiatives
- Global sustainable supply chains
This panel is AOM’s 6th Subject Matter Expert Panel in the “AOM Scholars On…” series.
