Case Studies / Facing the Elements: Building Business Resilience in a Changing Climate

Ratings: (0)|Views: 34|Likes:
National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (2012 Report)

A business-friendly primer emphasizing why adapting to climate change is important to stay competitive. See what the business case for action is, and what practical steps and approaches business executives and managers can use to get in front and succeed in the face of this growing challenge.

Climate change means business. And businesses are already on the frontline of climate change. The effects of more volatile weather and gradual changes in climate conditions will touch all facets of Canadian business in the decades to come. Despite growing awareness of the risks and opportunities that changing climate presents, few firms are adjusting business strategies and practices to adapt to this inevitable reality. Canada’s future economic prosperity relies on the continued resilience of Canadian business in a changing climate. The National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRT) has spent more than a year considering how we can act and adapt – business and government together – to prosper through climate change.


The result is Facing the Elements: Building Business Resilience in a Changing Climate, a three report series advising business and governments on coping with climate change from a business perspective.
