I listened to Episode 79 (January 31, 2008 ) of the HBR Ideacast™ this morning, and the second half of the podcast was an interview with the Editor of the Harvard Business Review, Thomas Stewart. He was discussing an online discussion that HBR has launched entitled HBR Green. The conversation is six bi-weekly commentaries from green strategy experts. Stewart claimed that HBR has decided to launch this discussion for two reasons:
- The magnitude of the issue, and HBR’s opinion that climate issues—just like globalization—are forces that will reshape the general business climate for years to come.
- Climate issues present opportunities for those companies that want to help solve the problems.
