Abstract

Climate change is perceived to be one of the biggest threats to the future of an organization, yet, it has also been acknowledged there is an upside to such risk. An organization can gain a competitive advantage through the use of business continuity management (BCM) to help safeguard against future adverse incidents. This paper explores the relationship between the application of BCM within an organization and increased environmental risk. Specifically, it focuses on whether an increase in environmental incidents caused by climate change has seen an increase in the use of BCM by organizations to offset such threats.
