Event description

Description


This business roundtable event explores London's physical and transition climate risks and what this means for businesses in London. Exploring current knowledge about risks and opportunities we will revisit the business case for ensuring climate-resilient investment, in buildings and infrastructure. Companies and sectoral organizations will share their experiences and explain what challenges exist. The discussion will help to inform the Business and Industry chapter of the Third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA3). Through a series of brief talks and interactive sessions, we aim to:

  • Showcase adaptation efforts by businesses in London
  • Identify what works, where the challenges are
  • Discuss how better to create linkages in particular with sustainable finance, infrastructure investment, business continuity and puplic planning
  • Generate awareness of and input to the third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment
