About the Event
The World Meteorological Organization is reporting the hottest decade on record. The World Bank is warning of the plethora of dangers that a 4∘C warming will deliver.  How will climate change impact Hong Kong businesses, and their value chains?  And what steps should businesses be taking to prepare?

This event will introduce both the latest World Bank research on climate impacts in Southeast Asia, and the New Normal: A Hong Kong Business Primer on Climate Change Adaptation, which is produced by BEC's initiative Climate Change Business Forum. It will also preview a new enterprise risk management tool, to be introduced later this autumn, which will help companies in the region map their specific vulnerability to climate risk and start to prepare response actions.

Join us to learn about emergent climate risk and the steps you can take to safeguard your business – today!
