River Talk: Beyond Politics: The Private Governance Response to Climate Change

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, NOON - 12:50 PM
LOCATION: THE BRIDGE BUILDING EVENT: FREE; LUNCH: $10 OR BRING YOUR OWN

Private sector action provides one of the most promising opportunities to reduce the risks of climate change, buying time while governments move slowly or even oppose climate mitigation. Starting with the insight that much of the resistance to climate mitigation is grounded in concern about the role of government, in their new book, Beyond Politics, Vandenbergh and Gilligan draw on law, policy, social science and climate science to demonstrate how private initiatives are already bypassing government inaction in the United States and around the globe. The book makes a persuasive case that private governance can reduce global carbon emissions by a billion tons per year over the next decade. Combining an examination of the growth of private climate initiatives over the last decade, a theory of why private actors are motivated to reduce emissions, and a review of viable next steps, this book speaks to scholars, business and advocacy group managers, philanthropists, policymakers and anyone interested in climate change.
