A pandemic-inspired focus on corporate resilience is giving way to a new long-term agenda as companies begin truly to face up the disruptive implications and impacts of climate change. 

Our 2021 Risk Summit will explore how companies are responding to the real and present threats of the climate crisis. How are they beginning to finance themselves differently as they seek to show that their activities are more environmentally sustainable? Big investors wield huge clout and are making ever more demands for investable companies to show ‘green’ credentials, commitment and credibility. Can financial innovation play a role?

But it’s about more than just money. Supply chains have been exposed as vulnerable to systemic shocks, whether from pandemics, freak blockages of key trade routes, or geo-politics as US-China tensions mount. As climate change inexorably emerges as an ever-more important risk factor, how can companies reconfigure their operations to meet a more demanding future? What steps are required and how confident can we be that companies can not only respond to the climate crisis, but also thrive and create the future wealth required to sustain human ingenuity and prosperity?

The conference will be held virtually using Zoom.

We will explore these topics with a range of specialists and business managers, including senior executives, corporate advisors, financial and other experts.
