Aug 17, 2017

In August 2017, CPA Canada released two articles on climate change, which discusses how one of the biggest risks facing businesses, economies and societies around the world is climate change and the impact climate change can have on business models and strategy.

The article It’s time to make climate change a business issue notes that the business cost of climate change is real and growing, but that not everyone is aware of the issues.

The article Planning for climate change and a carbon-reduced economy discusses the impact of climate change on business models and strategy. While some traditional business plans include instruments to deal with extreme weather events, many rely on historical data. They do not account for climate change, which heightens the unpredictability of intense environmental conditions. That’s why a long-term approach that addresses the implications of global warming is so critical. It can increase your organization’s resilience, protect profits and make risk management strategies more effective.
