18 September 2018

Are you prepared for the specific ways in which climate change will impact your business?

If you’re not sure or the answer is no, learn how to use scenario modelling to quantify your business risks and opportunities.

This type of scenario modelling is encouraged by the Financial Stability Board’s industry-led Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), both for understanding the resilience of an organizations business strategy to climate-related risks and opportunities, and for providing investors, lenders, and insurance underwriters the information needed to assess and price climate-related risks and opportunities.
