Crane and Matten identify two very different models of informal ethics management. Is the following statement true or false? In the culture change approach, the leader's role is one of participation and empowerment in order to foster moral imagination and autonomy on the part of employees. On the other hand, in the cultural learning approach, the leader's role is to articulate and personify the values and standards to which the organization aspires, and to then inspire and motivate employees to follow their lead. 1992 = World Business Council on Sustainable Development lobbies against any concrete measures at global level on climate change. 1996-1998 = Shell and BP leave the Global Climate Coalition in the face of European Union commitment to Kyoto and stakeholder pressure in the EU. 2005 = The European Union launches its Emissions Trading Scheme.
This is a market mechanism designed to achieve greenhouse gas reductions. 2006-2008 = A growing number of firms conclude that measures to tackle climate change are inevitable and it is therefore prudent to be part of the process.
