Free online workshop about climate change risks

Jan 31, 2021

 

How will more extreme weather create disruptions to operations or supply chains? How will greater scrutiny from banks on climate risk affect business’s ability to borrow money?

To answer these and other questions facing Irish businesses, SustainabilityWorks, cofounded by Laura Heuston, FCA, is running a series of free online workshops about climate change risks and opportunities for the Irish private sector:

  • Learn about the climate change impacts that are predicted for Ireland
  • Understand climate risks and opportunities for the private sector, supported by real world case studies
  • Hear from guest speaker Professor Andreas Hoepner on what’s happening at EU level with investors and policymakers, and what this means for business
  • Get practical advice on assessing climate change impacts for business

Further information

Getting to grips with climate change can feel overwhelming, especially when clear, sector-specific information is scarce, in-house resources are limited, and the focus – especially now – is on survival. SustainabilityWorks wants to help Irish businesses – both SMEs and large corporates – cut through the complexity and understand how climate change will impact them on a practical level. How will more extreme weather create disruptions to operations or supply chains? How will greater scrutiny from banks on climate risk affect business’s ability to borrow money?

Climate R|O - our research project funded by the Environmental Protection Agency - has identified the biggest climate risks and opportunities for four sectors of the Irish economy. SustainabilityWorks reviewed the latest science, spoke with companies and trade bodies, and gathered insights from the finance and energy sectors – both of which will be key to enabling business to transition to a low carbon future.

At these workshops they will share their findings and discuss practical ways that businesses can become more climate resilient. They will also gather your views to help inform their final results and their recommendations to policymakers.

The event is open to all, so please feel free to share this invite with colleagues, suppliers/partners, or others in your network who you think would be interested in coming along.
