Are you sure your transatlantic business is resilient for the risks of climate change?
The effects of the Covid restrictions on the supply chain can’t be missed and will hopefully be temporary. The consequences of climate change are presumed to be broader and more lasting.
More than 50% of the top 10 risks listed in The Global Risk Report of the World Economic Forum are climate related. This program will focus on the foreseeable and unforeseeable climate-related challenges for transatlantic economies and their businesses. Hence, business leaders have a responsibility to integrate the impact of climate change in their company’s risk assessment and strategy.
Therefore, the program will be streamlined along the following questions:
- What do we see happening?
- What is it impacting?
- How to prepare/prevent and which measures do other companies already undertake?
For whom is this webinar?
This program is organized for Supervisory and (Non-)Executive Board Members of international companies active in transatlantic business and invited professionals of the EACC network.
Date: October 11, 2021
This webinar will be organized in Zoom Meeting.
Since, the overall objective is to learn from the experts and to learn from each other, you are welcome to actively participate in the discussion or to only listen.
If possible, it would be nice to have your camera on (and remain on mute when listening).
Finally, kindly note that we will not record this session and will not publish anything out of the conversations.
