A fascinating and compelling conversation with Professor Christopher Wright on how corporations and capitalism effect climate change. We also talk about practical solutions on how to shift the population from denial to inspired action.
Christopher Wright is Professor of Organisational Studies at the University of Sydney Business School where he teaches and researches organisational change, sustainability and critical understandings of capitalism. His current research explores organizational and societal responses to climate change, with a focus on how managers and business organizations interpret and respond to the climate crisis. He has published on this topic in relation to issues of corporate environmentalism, corporate citizenship and fossil fuel hegemony.
His research on climate change and business is internationally recognised and he has developed research collaborations with leading international climate scientists and global environmental organisations. He is a key researcher at the Sydney Environment Institute, where he heads up a group examining corporate climate transition.
His research has appeared in a broad range of leading journals including: The Academy of Management Journal, Organization Studies, Journal of Management Studies, Research Policy, Human Relations, and the British Journal of Sociology. As well as chapters in edited collections, he is the author of several books including The Management of Labour (Oxford University Press, 1995), Management as Consultancy (Cambridge University Press, 2015), Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations (Cambridge University Press, 2015), and most recently Organising Responses to Climate Change: The Politics of Mitigation, Adaptation and Suffering (Cambridge University Press, 2022).
