Many companies internalize the current stalemate over global climate policy into a perception that climate risk is no longer a critical issue. Business climate risks, however, include:

  • operational and supply chain (physical) risk
  • brand risk
  • market-driven structural risk
  • liability risk

This DōShort will help business executives to:

  • Rethink their perceptions of climate risk
  • Evaluate whether their company is effectively positioned, and
  • Make informed and prudent business decisions about climate change risk in an environment rife with policy uncertainty.
