Climate-Proofing Your Business: Strategy Planning for Adaptation
With extreme weather events such as droughts, floods, storms and wildfires showing that climate change is no longer a distant threat — adaptation can no longer be the neglected half of the climate equation. The private sector must step up by addressing their climate risks and prioritizing adaptation — not only to protect their workers and the communities they operate in but also to ensure the success of their businesses now and in the future.
We invite you to join us on Wednesday, November 8th at 9:30 AM EST for a live session on Climate-Proofing Your Business: Strategy Planning for Adaptation, hosted by the UN Global Compact Academy in collaboration with the World Economic Forum and Assessing Low Carbon Transition (ACT).
What to Expect
- Expert Insights: Gain valuable insights from expert speakers from the UN Global Compact, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the World Economic Forum, the World Benchmarking Alliance and leaders from the private sector.
- Actionable Steps: Equip your organization with innovative approaches and frameworks to initiate climate adaptation effectively, including hands-on guidance for risk assessment and adaptation planning.
- Real-life examples: Gain valuable insights from your peers who have implemented adaptation plans and delivered essential services to communities. Delve into concrete examples that showcase practical adaptation measures and their positive impact on both businesses and society.
This live session is just an early glimpse into our new Academy learning journey on climate action designed to upskill your workforce and prepare them to take impactful climate action.
