The Global Carbon Crisis scoops book award

We are pleased to announce that Greenleaf authors Timo Busch and Paul Shrivastava have scooped the second prize in the Academy of Management’s Organizations and the Natural Environment (ONE) Book Award.

Their highly informative book The Global Carbon Crisis: Emerging Carbon Constraints and Strategic Management Options has been praised for making a “significant contribution to the increased understanding within the corporate world of the choices that lie ahead”.

Timo and Paul brought together their combined academic and business experience to produce this unique insight into the global carbon crisis. It is a must-read for all businesses grappling with carbon-related issues – succinctly presenting scientific information to the business reader, enabling them to make better sustainability choices in their work. We are delighted that its potential to get the carbon crisis message across to a business audience has been recognised by the Academy of Management.

The prizes were announced at the Organization and the Natural Environment Division Business Meeting during the annual Academy of Management Conference in August. The academy judged entries for the award on four criteria: originality of substance and approach; significance for scholarly policy debate in the field; rigour in approach and analysis; and readability.
