Board & Corporate Advisory
The understanding of climate risk is fundamental to 21st century business
Our changing climate is driving the swiftly shifting responsibilities of Boards and the requirement to bridge the climate competence gap. The key question is no longer What is our business doing to the environment? Boards need to be asking What is the environment doing to our business?
And where are our responsibilities to shareholders, investors, and wider society? Will this affect our licence to operate?
The context in which global companies operate is changing rapidly, with environmental, societal and economic pressure mounting.
