Against a backdrop of rising global concern about the environment and climate change, a McKinsey Quarterly survey finds that executives view climate change issues as important for their companies, seeing both opportunity and risk. The survey,1 which included respondents from a range of industries (some 40 percent of whom are evenly split between finance and manufacturing, with another 8 percent in energy, transport, or mining), finds that fully 60 percent of global executives view climate change as important to consider within their companies’ overall strategy. Further, nearly 70 percent see it as an important consideration for managing corporate reputation and brands, and over half say it’s important to account for climate change in such varied areas as product development, investment planning, and purchasing and supply management. About one-third of respondents say their companies places more emphasis on climate change than on most other global trends.
