How do you build resilience against climate change in the food supply chain?

Wednesday 23rd November 2022

Theatre :  Sustainability and Net Zero 


COVID / Ukraine War / Heatwave / Flood have reminded us how fragile our supply chains are.

We are waking up to the impact and dependencies of climate change on society, the global economy and businesses.
Committing to net zero emissions is a critical step forward but it may not be enough to secure the company’s successful future in a net zero world.

Most companies are focusing on long term mitigation targets has they race towards net zero.

However, managing the impacts of climate change on their business right now is equally important.

As well as averting potentially huge losses this course of action also offers a sizeable business opportunity.
