Extreme climate change has brought tremendous sufferings to the worldwide. People gradually realized that industrialization not only bring rich material but also bring the enormous impact on natural environment. Global warming leads to ice melting, sea level rising, more frequent storms, plants and animals extinction etc, which has brought complicated potential impact to earth and humanity.
As the main participants of industry, multinational companies produce one third of global products and participate in 90\% international trades. The multinational companies undertake unshakable responsibility in international carbon emission reduction. With the development of the political consensus on low-carbon transition and the global carbon market, more international and domestic carbon reduction laws, regulations, and policies evolve. Following this, innovation of low-carbon standards and customers’ expectation towards supplier’s carbon emission reduction have increasingly grown. With the changing of the external environment of production and business, multinational companies are increasingly participating in carbon management.
Under the above circumstances, it is natural to consider are there driving forces promoting multinational companies ‘participate in’ carbon management? What is the driving mechanism of multinational companies’ participation in carbon management? Are there differences of the driving forces for companies from different industry or different countries? How can multinational companies manage their carbon emissions in a proper way? These issues are of great importance to investors, governments, corporate decision makers and the pubic, which has attracted growing concern and has become the valuable hot issue in carbon management.
Research on Multinational Companies Carbon Management Driving Mechanism aims to investigate the theory and driving mechanism of multinational companies’ carbon management. The research is jointly carried out by RCCEF, Australian Center for Sustainable Business and Development, School of Economics and Management of City University of Macau, China University of Petroleum (East China) and is led by RCCEF members and associate professor Hubiao He. The survey continues for about 4 weeks. The research participants can fill in the questionnaire on the website:
