Is your company prepared for the climate transition already underway?

Can you respond effectively to changing expectations from investors, regulators and customers? How do you support your board in discharging their fiduciary duties related to climate risk?

Investors, regulators and customers increasingly acknowledge climate change as one of the defining challenges of our generation. Companies are now expected to demonstrate a competent response to this challenge. Already affecting organisational operations, reshaping markets and the structure of the economy, our changing climate is no longer just a corporate responsibility issue: it is a financial and strategic issue. Yet most businesses have not yet integrated climate into their core strategies.

Climate Change and Business Risk is available as an open and customised program. We draw on leading research and experience in Australia and abroad and you will hear from experts from across academia and industry.

On completion you'll be able to

  • Apply the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) framework to become climate resilient.

  • Develop a strategic approach for successfully integrating climate into strategy.

  • Work with and move past short-term pressures, policy uncertainty, and the difficulty of organisational and systems change.

Thank you for a well-planned and considered program.”
