Stepping to the Plate on Climate Change: Business Leadership on Climate Reduction
Assessing and managing risk is how the private sector and government are able to remain productive and successful in an increasingly complex and unpredictable global economy. This panel will take a prospective look at how businesses assess the risks of climate change and why it is necessary to begin planning today. This will allow for a discussion about the risks posed by climate change to business models and infrastructure, which may stretch businesses’ financial resources in unexpected ways. The panel will also consider how public-private partnerships in clean energy are growing the economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
