Weathering the Storm:

Building Business Resilience to Climate Change

Ninety percent of S&P Global 100 companies see extreme weather and other climate change impacts as current or near-term business risks. Their top concerns: closed factories, loss of power or water, disruption of supply and distribution chains, and rising commodity and insurance costs.

Senior executives from leading firms join the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) to examine how companies are beginning to assess and address their growing climate risks. This high-level roundtable builds on a new C2ES report, Weathering the Storm: Building Business Resilience to Climate Change, which looks in-depth at the state of resilience planning among a cross-section of global companies.

Date: Monday, Sept. 23, 2013, 2-4 p.m.
