Webinar | Will The Climate Crisis Reshape Business And Finance?

About this event

Following the 2020 Shared Value Summit Asia Pacific, the monthly Climate for Change Webinar Series will continue to explore how business can address the challenges we face in 2020.

The climate is changing in ways we’ve never seen before. With bushfires ravishing the land, historic hurricanes and devastating floods, the implications of climate change are far reaching. 

For many businesses, climate risk is a new concept but with the threat of climate change only growing in severity, it’s a concept that is now essential to a company’s long-term success. According to BlackRock Chair Larry Fink, this new awareness of climate risk is pushing us towards a fundamental reshaping of finance. What does this mean for business and investors?

Join us on Thursday 8 October with moderator SVP CEO Helen Steel, BlackRock Director, Client Sustainability Specialist Steve Monnier and QBE Group Head of Sustainability Janette O’Neill  to unpack:

  • How business and investors are rethinking climate risk through a shared value lens
  • What the future of investment looks like in the face of climate change
  • Best practice approach to integrating a climate risk strategy

When: 1.00pm, Thursday 8 October
 Online via Zoom
RSVP: Register before COB Friday 2 October
