    The publication features a range of articles that encourage the sharing of best practice and the development of new technologies and initiatives and illustrates the opportunities for business and governments to reduce costs and increase profits while tackling climate change. This edition is focused on three themes: mitigation and adaptation, technology, and finance. It also describes positive actions organizations can take to reduce their carbon footprint and thereby their costs. Some of these actions require little investment in time or money, while others require substantial time and capital. But what they all require is a commitment to succeed.--Publisher"s description.
