Climate Change: How to manage and mitigate your business risks

22 Nov 2023
Theatre 7

Climate Change affects your business and the climate crisis is changing the way we live and the way we work.
Climate Change is currently considered one of the main causes of Sustainability risks for businesses.
Due to the long-term nature of the impacts, traditional Risk Management methodologies often fail to address the risks resulting from Climate Change.
These methodologies are not able to accommodate extended future periods, such as the year 2050 which by definition is
out of reach for most business planning tools. 

In this seminar, we will discuss the Risks and Opportunities of Climate Change for businesses and
the ways of identifying, assessing, managing and reporting them. Key points which will be addressed:

  • What is the international framework on Climate Change?

  • What are the Climate Change issues for businesses? Refers to economic, regulatory and other physical and transitional impacts of Climate Change. 

  • How are risks/opportunities evaluated and quantified across the supply/value chain?

  • How can external databases and Big Data contribute to scenario analysis, risk modelling and forecasts over long-term time horizons?

  • What are the main steps to mitigate the impact on Climate Change?
