Abstract: Climate change is an immense challenge for businesses. Lately, the results of the burgeoning nexus between organisational culture and corporate climate change performance and the latter's links with business performance have remained elusive especially in developing countries such as Malaysia due to the lack of empirical research. Therefore, this study investigates the antecedents and outcomes of corporate climate change performance among Malaysian businesses. Results reveal the presence of a positive relationship between organisational culture and corporate climate change performance as well as the latter's links with business performance. With that said, to reap the superior benefits of corporate climate change practices, this study emphasises the urgency for Malaysian organisations to comprehend their role on climate change performance before even embracing and adopting these practices to elevate the Malaysian economy and gain competitive advantages over other ASEAN countries.

Keywords: climate change performance; organisational culture; customer loyalty; employee commitment; business performance.
