Climate change is one of the most important challenges mankind will face in the coming decades. A wide variety of leaders in business and government are increasingly acknowledging the urgency of climate change and warning of its dire consequences for our economic, political and social systems. As a result, calls for a significant transition of our energy systems and economies toward a low-carbon future are becoming salient. As Howard-Grenville et al. (2014)’s article on society’s grand challenges, as well as the president of the AOM’s address in 2017 highlighted, there is a need to increase research efforts on climate change in the management and strategy fields. However, research on this important topic still is a nascent area within management and strategy, especially in light of the magnitude of climate change as an economic and business challenge. Pursuing high- quality research in management and strategy that is focused on climate change and the coming energy transition is therefore ever more important, particularly given the significant role firms play in producing greenhouse gases and potentially finding innovative solutions for a low-carbon future. Building on the AOM 2017 PDW on “Climate change and Strategy”, this year’s PDW will focus on supporting scholars to develop high-quality papers related to these important issues. Starting with a panel of top journal editors and followed by interactive small group sessions where registered participants will receive feedback from accomplished scholars on their paper drafts, the paper development workshop will be of benefit for a wide variety of different AOM stakeholders.
