Climate Adaptation for Business

The physical impacts of climate changes are already affecting businesses around the world through increased frequency, intensity and duration of storms; flooding; drought; fires and extreme temperatures. Every aspect of business can be affected by climate changes, including day-to-day operations and continuity, process safety, labor force, supply chain vulnerability, market access, capital expenditure, and even merger and acquisition activity. While some companies have made major strides in efforts to slow climate change, business progress on climate adaptation lags behind.
