The purpose of this paper is to describe an initial seed of anti‐climate change management (ACCM) in business practices and theory generation.


An approach of ACCM is coined and a framework is outlined.


Two interconnected levels of ACCM may be distinguished.

Research limitations/implications

A recent UN‐report indicates the timing is ripe to link the global and business levels together on the agendas of practitioners and scholars.

Practical implications

ACCM suggests a major twist in business practices and theory generation from being only business‐oriented, and in part environment‐oriented, to being planet‐oriented as well.


ACCM assists in repositioning and expanding the boundaries of current chain management approaches considered in business practices and theory generation. It also contributes to linking business and non‐business research disciplines together. Furthermore, it stresses the requirement of “bottom‐up” and “top‐down” approaches so as to highlight the connection between local practices and global sustainability.
