Abstract [en]

The CEO letters included in annual reports express strategic issues and the leadership vision. This study applies a content analysis approach to review 2400 CEO letters from European and US-based publicly‐traded companies published in years 2000 through 2009. The aim is to analyze the development of the interest in adapting climate change issues on the corporate strategic agenda versus other issues of possible concern. The analysis show that the interest in climate issues on one hand has developed in a similar pattern in both regions. Between the years 2000 until 2004 the interest was very limited in both regions, the big growth of interest happened year 2005, since year 2007 the interest have decreased. In summary the findings on the other hand indicate that US industry is lagging behind Europe when it comes to adapting climate change on the corporate strategic agenda.
