Climate change is one of the defining issues of our generation.
It goes to the core of organisational strategy and holds potential to influence the flow of capital. Increasing scrutiny around corporate governance and disclosure expectations relating to the management of climate risks, together with individuals who believe their rights have been directly impacted by climate-induced physical phenomena, puts climate change high on the radar.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to navigating the risks and opportunities climate change presents as the country continues on the pathway scientists agree is needed: net zero by 2050.
Organisations will need to uniquely establish robust governance frameworks, provide accurate and relevant information to the market, and be open to change as the landscape evolves.
