AT THE CROSSROADS – leadership in the age of climate change

by Jouni Keronen and Mari Pantsar

“If we fail to mitigate the climate change on time, billions of people will suffer, having devastating effects on our economies and social peace. The book opens up the reasons for the climate change and  the way we can mitigate it. The urgency and the massive volume of needed actions – especially in ramping up investment, will challenge our governance models. There are ways for effective mitigation, but are we able to take them into use?

Dr. Jouni Keronen is the CEO of Climate Leadership Coalition, Europe’s largest climate business network. Dr. Mari Pantsar is the Director of Sustainability solutions at the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra.
