ADDRESSING CLIMATE CHANGE: POTENTIAL COSTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

10:15-11:30 Congress Centre, Conference Hall B2
The success of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris has made addressing climate change a top-priority issue, with clear targets to moderate further global temperature increases. But limiting greenhouse gases will have costs for many legacy industries – estimated by some to top USD 100 billion – while new investments in science and technology will spur new business opportunities and expand markets. How are businesses adjusting their strategies in the light of these changes and will the potential benefits of creating green industries and mitigating climate change risks outweigh the costs of restructuring certain industrial sectors and building the required infrastructure?
