Climate change poses serious and novel risks to businesses of all types and sizes–from supply and chain disruptions, to changes in national and international regulation, to shifting expectations of employees and customers. Moderated by Dr. Ann Goodman, author of Adapting to Change: The Business of Climate Resilience, this webinar will explore the implications of climate risk for business. Experts from among the companies most advanced in resilience thinking will share their views of how climate risk has changed their firms’ products, services, and ways of doing business—and how to weigh the costs of acting on climate against the risks of not preparing.
Join us for the webinar on January 11th at 1:15pm EST. Check back for registration details.
October 21-22, 2016 Dr. Goodman participated in the 1st Annual International Technical Workshop on Climate Risk Conference in Wells, Maine.
