Ignoring the climate crisis is (soon to be considered) bad for business.
Why ignoring climate change is becoming a risky business
More detailed information
We are all aware that exceptional businesses and true value can only be developed over time. A CEO's biggest issue is juggling the need to achieve long-term objectives with the necessity to maintain the organization's strength in the present.
Companies and industries that are not moving towards zero-carbon emissions will be punished by investors and go bankrupt. Ignoring climate change is becoming a risky business.
It is acknowledged that climate change will have an enormous impact on society and affect a number of different industries. As a result, it will become a growing challenge to business continuity and resilience.
Physical climate disruption, resource depletion, direct harm from extreme weather, and increasing sea levels are some of these hazards. Commodity price volatility, increased capital expenses, financial losses, and significant reputational harm are some of the knock-on impacts that ensue.
It should come as no surprise that these concerns are forcing corporate executives to reconsider their business strategies.
