Climate Turbulence: What Businesses and Investors Can’t Afford to Ignore
Part 1: How is the financial services industry responding to climate risk?


Details

Business Environment Council, The American Chamber of Commerce’s Environment & Sustainability Committee and The British Chamber of Commerce's Energy and Environment Committee jointly bring you “Climate Turbulence: What Businesses and Investors Can’t Afford to Ignore? Part 1: How is the financial services industry responding to climate risk?

Recent catastrophic weather events around the world have been in the headlines and are top of mind for business leaders. Storms have already destroyed billions of dollars of value, and curtailed income streams going forward. This does not bode well for a future with more climate-induced weather in the forecast. With climate change disrupting business operations, supply chains, customers, and overall business continuity, how do investors, asset managers, insurers and other financial players assess and manage risk? How should companies respond? This event is aimed at financial services institutions who want to learn more about this emerging risk category, as well as companies who would like to plan for climate-related inquiries from investors and others.

First 15-20 minutes is for networking
Sandwiches and beverages included
