Este artigo tem como objetivo examinar o processo de mudanças climáticas globais como um fator exógeno que modifica o grau e a direção do comportamento de busca tecnológica das firmas. A análise organiza a literatura principal em três níveis principais, da firma, dado o esgotamento tecnológico e a expansão para além de mercados nacionais, do mercado, diante de condições específicas da sua evolução que afetam o seu funcionamento e a distribuição de incentivos, e do sistema, que reflete os estímulos para realização de atividades inovativas a partir de diferentes condições de oportunidade tecnológica. Procura-se demonstrar, a partir da literatura subjacente, que as transformações no ambiente tecnológico promovidas pelas mudanças climáticas constituem um importante fator exógeno capaz de alterar a forma como as firmas conduzem sua atividade de busca tecnológica. Nesse sentido, a contribuição do artigo consiste em relacionar essas transformações em três níveis principais
