Climate Change & Climate Risk Oversight for Corporate Directors
This is our 4-part video series on Climate Risk and Climate Oversight for Corporate Directors. It helps corporate directors and leaders to understand the risks of climate change and their role and fiduciary responsibilities to oversee these risks.
Climate change is a planetary emergency that poses severe risks to businesses, society, and the global economy. The science is clear — human activities such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation are causing accelerated global warming. Climate change is already having material impacts worldwide, with disproportionate effects on vulnerable and marginalised communities. Business leaders have both a responsibility and a key role to play in preventing the worst impacts of climate change and driving a rapid transition to a just and low-carbon future.
Part One: Climate Change for Corporate Directors
