Agribusiness and Carbon Management
About the Book
Carbon emission is no doubt becoming a hot issue to government, academicians, NGOs and corporates. Pressures come not only from government, but also from all other stockholders. Sound carbon performance companies will be beneficial on operational cost reduction. These will eventually lead corporates to start thinking on development of carbon reduction strategy and initiatives. Linking culture to the minimum use of energy, and socio economic pathways of carbon mitigation and competitive advantage of agribusiness firms are strongly correlated with climatic parameters. Climatic change such as rainfall pattern, temperature, floods and draughts heavily affects agriculture and the population depending on it. The climate change affects the business that provides inputs to agriculture as well as the business which depends on agro products.
The main aim of the book ‘Agribusiness and Carbon Management’ is to develop the conceptual and practical understanding of the anthropogenic forcing causing the climate change, the global framework and mechanism to deal with it, challenges to responses of business community, Socio economic impact on carbon mitigation and the dynamics underlying carbon management in reference to agribusiness.
We are of firm belief that the book will be helpful to researchers, scholars, Government officers, Corporate executives, NGOs and other activist and students from various disciplines in creating awareness about the socioeconomic pathways of carbon mitigation and save the world from global warming.
