Descripción:

BRAND NEW, The Long Hedge: Preserving Organisational Value through Climate Change Adaptation, Jason West, Part of the Greenleaf Publishing Responsible Investment Series Mitigating and adapting to risks and changing circumstances is a natural part of doing business. But methods of mitigating and adapting can be quite different in terms of time, cost and observed impacts. The impacts of mitigation activities are more immediate while the benefits of adaptation activities may take many years to take effect. Nowhere is this difference more apparent than in the case of the corporate response to climate change. In the context of climate change, adaptation is the process of changing behaviour in response to actual or expected climate change impacts. Climate change adaptation is now emerging as a critical partner to mitigation, and indeed may even become the primary protection mechanism for future generations. In this unique book, Jason West provides a comprehensive assessment of the management of climate change adaptation in the corporate sector. The book provides a formal overview of the range of approaches available along with a series of practical case studies and examples that can be used by companies and other organisations to identify, assess and manage climate change adaptation. A major focus is on the financial and investment implications of climate change adaptation. West examines how firms can evaluate the investment decisions associated with long-term climate change adaptation measures, including how such investments can be valued and funded, the appropriate accounting treatment of such measures and appropriate risk management and governance practices in relation to such measures. The book also considers the needs and interests of investors and other stakeholders, and considers how they can assess the adequacy and appropriateness of corporate action on climate change. 'The Long Hedge' will be essential reading and a key text for risk-practitioners, investors, financiers, scholars and policy makers in the field of climate change. N° de ref. de la librería

Críticas: For several years now I've felt that climate change is one of the main long-term risks facing business. At one point I even considered writing a book that would help companies prepare - involving the growing field of "climate resilience." Now I'm glad I didn't, as Jason West, an associate professor of finance at Griffith Business School in Brisbane, Australia, has - and it's a better book than I would have written. The Long Hedge: Preserving Organizational Value through Climate Change Adaptation (Greenleaf Publishing) is a thorough, detailed look at the organizational risks climate change and extreme weather pose (e.g. to supply chains, infrastructure, agricultural operations, etc.) and the steps companies can take to evaluate risks and prepare. "It is generally accepted that businesses and governments will need to adapt their behavior and develop plans to respond to the challenges of climate change," West writes in the Introduction. "While global-level adaptation techniques are varied and complex, this book focuses specifically on climate change adaptation mechanisms for companies and other entities, whose focus on adaptation has increased with the aim of protecting their business operations from climate change risk. In particular, our discussion will cover climate change adaptation governance, risk assessment and financial disclosure." As West is a finance professor, the book does have a certain density to it, but that density also provides substance. I'd view it less as an easy evening's read than a valuable long-term reference. There are chapters, for example, on "Business response to climate change," "Adaptation activities," "The costs of adaptation: assessment options," "Adaptation: investor disclosure," "Evaluating corporate sustainability," "How to deploy these techniques: A user's guide," and more. Of particular interest is West's focus on the implications of companies' climate-change-related actions (or lack thereof) for the investment community. Most of what I've previously read about corporate "climate resilience" addresses operational readiness, but not the potential concerns of investors. "One of the aspects of climate change critical to investors and other stakeholders (particularly governmental regulators)," notes West, "is the ability of firms to clearly communicate their adaptation actions and plans. It is not unusual for firms to be uncertain of relevant disclosure requirements in the current corporate environment, let alone what additional disclosures are required when developing a major adaptation plan." In short, for executives involved in corporate risk mitigation activities, the book is a multi-course meal to dig into. For over a decade while I was in the corporate world I served on teams that helped our company prepare for unexpected events. The teams went by a variety of names - Disaster Recovery, Business Recovery, etc. The experience was a little like the description I've heard of the role of an anesthesiologist: 23 hours and 59 minutes of boredom punctuated by one minute of terror. For the most part the preparatory work on these teams was fairly dull... but then when a disaster occurred, suddenly the work became the most important activity in the company. By far. Were I still on one of those teams, The Long Hedge would unquestionably be within easy reach in my library. -- Victor Lipman, Forbes
