Climate change and environmental issues have become recurring topics in current debates, leading to a heightened awareness of the need to preserve the planet and its species. To address these challenges, governments, businesses, social movements, and NGOs are actively engaging in a transition towards sustainable and nature-friendly lifestyles. In this critical context, academic research plays a crucial role by proposing concrete and applicable solutions to help managers confront these issues. The Covid-19 pandemic has further emphasized systemic dysfunctions, the interdependence of value chain actors, and resource scarcity. As a result, this special edition gives voice to researchers in organizational behavior to explore their potential contribution in the fight against climate change and environmental crises. Three research themes are prioritized. Firstly, they delve into the initiative of defining change, introducing transformations, and evaluating their impacts at various levels of analysis (individuals, groups, organizations, institutions). Scientific and cultural approaches are studied to better understand events related to this transformative period, especially in sectors like agriculture where sustainability is crucial. Secondly, the organized action in response to climate change and the environment is examined through public policies, corporate self-regulations, and choices regarding sustainable development. Ensuring alignment between discourse and actions becomes essential for decision-makers, raising questions about the radicality or reformist approach to policies. Lastly, the third theme explores the mentalities and behaviors of actors facing environmental transformations. In-depth research is conducted on representations and emotions related to climate change, which can generate resilient or traumatic behaviors. Reactions such as denial and organizational hypocrisy are also studied, as well as the engagement of active groups in reflection and knowledge creation. This special edition will welcome articles using different research methods and approaches to foster a better understanding of the challenges linked to climate change and the environment, aiming to promote effective and sustainable actions for a future that respects our planet.
