Arctic Corporate Social Responsibility - New Frontiers of Business, Management and Enterprise

New book highlights impacts of climate change on ecosystems and Arctic people and how they are part of the solution, by Professors Gisele M. Arruda and Lara Johannsdottir.

This book is the fruit of the authors’ passion about the Arctic, the ecological, social, and economic changes that are taking place in the Arctic, the impact that the changes have on the Arctic people and ecosystems and the role and responsibility of businesses in ensuring the sustainable development of the region.

The book clearly sets the role of business in climate change adaption and the importance of engaging stakeholders in social responsibility, socio-environmental standards, and sustainability according to frameworks line the UN Sustainable Development Goals, according to a new strategy in the Arctic based on Arctic Citizenship Model (Arruda, 2019), circular economy, blue economy, smart specialization, knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship, and new parameters of education.

This book examines the ways in which the changing climate and natural resources provide unique opportunities and challenges for business and societies.  Professor Gisele M. Arruda and Professor Lara Johannsdottir, in their book “Corporate Social Responsibility in the Arctic - The New Frontiers of Business, Management, and Enterprise” show the impact of climate change on the Arctic people and ecosystems and how to be part of the solution.

This is a guide that provides both case studies and business practices that can help companies focus on a highest-level of social responsibility and ensure the sustainable development of the region by reducing carbon emissions, making a climate action plan, and supporting climate policies.  Companies can also offset their carbon footprint through carbon removal.

This book launched in September, at the University of Iceland and was live streamed globally.
