Virtual Event 30 Nov - 4 Dec 2020: Climate Risk Asia Week
COVID-19 has provided a crash course in resilience for businesses the world over. Has it prepared organisations for the disruptive challenges that must be managed if the world is to avoid a foreseeable catastrophe in the form of climate change?
If we are to reach the target set out in the Paris Climate Agreement to limit the rise in global temperature to below 2°C, the world will need to see a global energy transition that will have huge effects on all organisations. Couple this with the disruption to businesses from the physical impacts of climate change such as rising sea levels and extreme weather events, and it becomes clear why markets are demanding greater transparency on the climate risks that firms face and the strategic approaches they are putting in place to build resilience.
Climate change will continue to reshape every aspect of the global economy, from politics to migration, financing, and supply chains. This week of online discussions, keynote interviews, and interactive roundtables will bring together policymakers, business leaders, investors, insurers, and scientists to discuss how organisations are preparing to adjust, and what more they should be doing.
Over the five days, participants will discuss how to respond to the challenges they face around physical and transition risk. They will be able to network with their peers across a range of industries and will learn how to identify and assess the impact of climate change on their business.
Panels of experts will evaluate the most effective ways to use climate scenario analysis and assess evolving regulatory frameworks across the Asia-Pacific region. The week’s programme will feature a debate about the standardisation of disclosure practices and will provide insights into the risk of litigation and how to manage the message with internal and external stakeholders.
