Global Climate Change: How the Business will Change

05 Jun , 12:00–13:15
Business Priority Programme
Pavilion H, Business Priority Zone

Over the past 40 years, the area of ice in the Arctic Ocean has become less than half, the Arctic is melting. It is obvious that the conditions of life on the planet are changing. As a result, the state and business are forced to rethink approaches, look for answers to current challenges and learn to work with new types of risks in the field of ecology and sustainable development (ESG).

CEOs, board members, and experts will discuss three key issues:
- the direct and indirect impact of the climate agenda on business;
- capital response: managing the risks of current investments or creating new "green finance" tools;
— how can managers form an understanding of climate change, risks and opportunities?
