Abstract

Organizational scholars have so far remained relatively passive around the debate on climate change. We argue that organizational scholars could and should get more involved and show how this could be done through the lenses of institutional, stakeholder, and complexity theories.

Keywords: Climate Change, Institutional Theory, Stakeholder Theory, Complexity Theory
