    Abstract

    While there is a recognized need to adapt to changing climatic conditions, there is an emerging discourse of determinants to such adaptation. The article discusses selected, social factors conditioning corporate adaptation to climate change. In particular, the paper focuses on values, organizational culture, and employee awareness. The results showed that environmental values are important determinants of willingness to accept climate change adaptation measures, whereas insufficient knowledge and inappropriate organizational culture significantly hinder the process.
