Abstract The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the factors that motivate companies to partner with NGOs on the issue of climate change. In investigating these factors several appear to motivate companies to take action: cost savings, brand image, and altruistic motivations. Climate change has the ability to change the way we live and the global landscape. It is important to understand the factors that cause business to take action on climate change so that we can help to slow or reduce the intensity of climate change. I investigate six companies, three who are actively partnering with NGOs (Lafarge, Nike, and Starbucks) and three who are not (Boeing, Costco, and Weyerhaeuser) to determine what factors motivate these companies to either take action or not.
