Climate Turbulence: What Businesses and Investors Can’t Afford to Ignore
Part 2: Brace, Brace! How companies are responding to the climate turbulence ahead


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 2: Brace, Brace! How companies are responding to the climate turbulence ahead”

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.

In Part 1, we learned that leading financial institutions are starting to assess and actively hedge their exposure to corporate climate risk. In Part 2, we will hear how companies are taking steps to evaluate their exposure and institute resilience strategies – protecting people, assets and business continuity.
