The headlines will not be new to most people— climate change is happening, it’s caused by humans and it’s serious.

This rise in temperature will come with increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events, causing devastating impacts to people and ecosystems as well as business continuity.

While business efforts to date have focused on mitigation – and rightly so – corporate adaptation and resilience strategies will become increasingly commonplace and increasingly vital.

How current business models can respond with robust adaptation strategies to score a competitive advantage?
Why companies’ adaptation and resilience strategy should go beyond business operations and consider the broader impacts on society?

David will talk about the scientific evidence on climate change, the extend of the problem and the urgency for action.

Sarah will be talking about the impacts of climate change in the Construction industry and how new designs and retrofits are including climate change adaptation strategies along with financial impacts.
