This series will support companies to enhance business resilience, and in turn broader societal and environmental resilience to climate change. Each webinar will feature guest presentations and case studies from a diverse range of business and climate leaders. Participants in this series will:

  • Develop a greater understanding of climate risks and learn how to effectively manage risks to minimize business disruptions, deploy resources more efficiently, and prioritize climate resilience interventions that contribute to other positive development outcomes.
  • Discover how to take action to enhance climate resilience through strengthening one or more of the six capital assets (i.e., human, political, physical, financial, social, and natural).
  • Gain insight into the tools and resources available to support implementation of climate resilience within core business strategies.

London Climate Action Week – Business Transition to a Net Zero and Resilient World
1 July 2021, 10:30-12:00 BST

In June 2020, the COP26 High Level Climate Champions launched the ‘Race to Zero’, followed months later by the launch of its sibling campaign, the ‘Race to Resilience’. These two global campaigns are mobilising businesses, investors, cities, and civil society to take immediate action to achieve net zero emissions no later than 2050 (Race to Zero) and strengthen the resilience of 4 billion people in vulnerable communities by 2030 (Race to Resilience). This event during London Climate Action Week explored the climate mitigation and resilience agendas and the interlinkages between them. Government representatives, experts, and business leaders discussed their vision of a net zero, climate resilient world, and the actions they are taking to get there.

Understanding Risks to Build Climate-Resilience
8 July 2021 10:30 - 11:45 BST

This session focussed on the ‘Businesses and Economies’ dimension of resilience. The session examined some of the key risks for businesses in not taking action to enhance resilience; how to identify, measure, and monitor risks to inform business decision making; and the tools and resources available to support companies to manage and disclose risks.
