As firms acknowledge the increasing pressure to cope with climate change, managerial attention is likely to become an even scarcer resource. This paper examines how several instruments of human resource management systems - incentive compensation, monitoring, outsourcing, centralization, and training - should collectively adjust to this. We find that outsourcing the provision of environmental goods and services, or investing in general climate change management training, can adversely alter managerial attention.
