Standardizing and Scaling Up: Climate Resilience Across Value Chains

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring
Wednesday November 13, 3:15 pm-4:15 pm
Location: Gold

Climate change impacts—including more frequent and intense extreme weather events, warming temperatures, and drought—already affect businesses and communities along company value chains. As more companies recognize the urgency to reduce climate risk to maintain productivity, they face a significant challenge in developing resilience strategies: the absence of universal metrics and standards to quantify the benefits. Explore the opportunities and options in setting adaptation targets, defining a framework for results, and maximizing the benefits of resilience for communities along company value chains.
