Climate Change Planning & Mitigation
Climate change is having an undeniable impact on our world and on the way in which businesses operate. And corporation’s activities are under more scrutiny than ever before with stakeholders expecting disclosures on issues ranging from business conduct through to carbon emissions. Stakeholders also expect a business to have a clear strategy to adapt to climate risks and capitalise on the opportunities it presents.
But none of us have a crystal ball. Impacts can be hard to predict. Yet it is vital that businesses can quickly adapt. We have a deep and technical understanding of climate change and wider environment and energy issues. We are renowned for our pragmatic and commercial approach. We are experienced in forecasting and modelling the potential impacts of climate change. And we plan for those changes and we develop mitigation measures.
Areas of focus might include looking at alternative products and materials to eliminate resources significantly affected by climate change. Or re-thinking strategies to develop environmentally friendly products or even developing a completely new business model to take advantage of the opportunities identified. It might include responses to physical risks to premises from increasing flooding or interruptions to your business operations through loss of energy supplies. Or implementing programmes to improve energy efficiency or account for exposures to climate change legislation.
But there’s no simple formula. The impacts of climate change are different for each and every business and the solutions to mitigate them need to be equally as unique. No matter what type of business you are in we can help you to develop a clear picture, devise appropriate responses and communicate those to your stakeholders.
