What Personally Motivates CEOs To Act On Climate Change?

A desire to protect the interests of future generations is seen as a critical or even overriding factor that motivates CEOs to drive business action on climate change, according to PwC’s CEO pulse on climate change survey.

However, three out of five surveyed (63%) said they were personally motivated by creating a reputational advantage. Just over half (53%) identified improving shareholder value as a motivator.  Other factors on the list include “building trust” with 52%, “consumer demand” with 50%, “resilience” 44%, and “talent” 40%. Only 5% of CEOs said no action was being taken.
