Clyde & Co Resilience Conference: Squaring up
On any measure, climate change is now a C-suite issue.
- Simon Konsta, Senior Partner, Clyde & Co
July 2019 In a video opening Clyde & Co’s recent Climate Change Liability Risk conference, leading climate scientist Dr Emily Shuckburgh of Cambridge University made this powerful statement: “The impacts on businesses from climate change are often thought to be far in the future, but they’re actually already here today.” Marking the end of London Climate Action Week, 280 delegates packed the auditorium to hear experts from the law, insurance, finance, academia, regulation, advisory and risk analysis speak about the critical climate change-related issues facing businesses and their directors and officers.
Clyde & Co Senior Partner Simon Konsta introduced the event by explaining its premise: that businesses need an appreciation of the present and future risks posed by climate change in their various forms; an awareness of what developments might drive policy going forward; and a toolkit to help them navigate the years ahead. It is, he pointed out, a highly complex and fast-changing issue that needs to be addressed at the highest level in businesses across every sector.
