In its 2019 Global Risk Report, the World Economic Forum identifies the top 30 risks that could damage the global economy in the next 10 years. It notes that environment-related risks account for the top three risks by likelihood and four of the top seven risks by impact. Furthermore, climate-related risks have the greatest likelihood and impact on the global economy. They are not only independent threats to businesses, but they most often act to enhance existing issues – also known as threat multipliers.
 
What does this mean for Boards? What is the relevance to your organizations and to your roles and responsibilities as a Director?
 
This one-hour webinar, delivered in partnership with CPA Canada and Natural Resources Canada, will provide an overview of the impacts of climate change and the leadership opportunities for Directors to help their organizations adapt and prepare for the future.

  • The scientific context and global response to climate change
  • Climate-related risks and opportunities and the implications for different types of organizations
  • The relevance of climate change to Directors’ roles and responsibilities
  • Helpful resources for Directors in overseeing climate change issues
