Abstract:
Awareness of critical role of enterprises in climate change response, the paper demonstrates on examining of the climate change integration of business. Number of 101 out of 120 questionnaires was collected from companies. All six aspects of climate change integration received a low rate of "YES" response. About 76.2% does not mention on process improvement. Up to 81.1% does not have any targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or include this goal in the company's strategy and action plan. The majorities of businesses are not interested in product development and/or estimated their emissions. Up to 83.2% of enterprises do not intend to implement greenhouse gas emission reduction of suppliers. Many enterprises do not mention new product or market combination as well as pay their attention on possibility of partnership and or entrance of new markets but not give any details. An about 37.6% companies does not care about the market mechanism for emissions and/or not participating. About 62.4% does not apply the market mechanism and are not noticeable on this issue.
Due to the low climate change participation of business, it is of important to apply seven-step process to promote the climate change integration into development strategies of business, especially for those in energy-intensive industries.
