Join the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES, formerly the Pew Center on Global Climate Change) and a panel of corporate leaders to discuss the lessons learned from the C2ES report, "Weathering the Storm: Building Business Resilience to Climate Change." The report provides a detailed snapshot and case studies of resilience planning across global corporations, and outlines steps businesses can take to better assess and manage their growing corporate climate risks. The research finds that ninety percent of S&P Global 100 Index companies identify extreme weather and climate change as current or future business risks, while almost two-thirds say they are experiencing climate change impacts now, or expect to in the coming decade. However, most companies are managing these risks through existing business continuity and emergency management plans, and only a few have used climate-specific tools to comprehensively assess risks. Many companies (75 percent) also see new opportunities from a changing climate, including drought-resistant crops, storm-resistant building materials, and weather-related insurance products. Panelists will discuss both the risks and some potential solutions, such as: creating a clearinghouse for reliable, up-to-date data and analytical tools; investing in public infrastructure resilience; considering resilience needs in regulation; and developing voluntary, public-private partnerships.
