Smart firms will use the challenge of
global climate change to stimulate innovation and improve business practices that help reconcile environmental and business performance goals. Once people step beyond the boundaries of incremental, zero- sum thinking they can create a culture supportive of creativity and learning. Such a learning organization will empower its people to effect innovative change as part of the everyday working culture.
