Risk Management for Climate Change
Climate change generates significant environmental, economic and social losses globally and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. In fact, even if greenhouse gas emissions suddenly stopped tomorrow, Earth’s surface temperatures would still require thousands of years to return to the levels of the pre-industrial era. This means that some climate threats will continue to progress despite our efforts to reduce global warming and, as a result, businesses across the world will be exposed to climate risks in the decades to come.
Thus, understanding and effectively managing climate risks will need to become common practice for businesses if they are to remain competitive and thrive. Businesses will need to increase their capacity to identify climate risks, not just in their own activities and operations, but throughout their value chains. They will also have to find practical ways to reduce their exposure and sensitivity to climate impacts and adjust their strategy to build climate resilience in their value chain operations.
