About the event
In the past 50 years, climate change has resulted in over 11,000 weather-related disasters, such as droughts or flooding, costing trillions of dollars and disproportionately impacting low-income countries. With the increasing frequency of these disasters, it is evident that climate change is further affecting societies, environments, and businesses, necessitating urgent adaptation measures.
This webinar examines some of the key risks for businesses that do not take action to enhance climate resilience. Additionally, it explores methods for identifying, measuring, and monitoring risks to inform business decision-making, along with an examination of the tools and resources available to support companies in effectively managing and disclosing risks.
