Demographic change is one of the most crucial issues of our time. Owing to its importance for companies, this topic has made it onto decision-makers' agendas in recent years. This chapter-which serves as the introductory chapter-sets out to first establish a common understanding of the term demographic change. The motivation is that one must first understand the specific developments of demographic change if one is to effectively consider its various implications. Secondly, by taking the company stakeholder perspective, this chapter introduces an integrated framework for examining demographic change's implications for companies. Thirdly, on the basis of the suggested framework, this chapter integrates and organises the individual book contributions.
