Today, businesses worldwide struggle to adapt their policies and operations to the reality of a changing climate. More than ever, it is critical for organizations to make informed decision-making on the best actions to take to ensure their long-term viability and success.

We will start off with a review of current (as well as foreseeable future) mandatory governmental policies and legislation, before moving on to action planning strategies for business organizations. We will look at some of the important benefits of climate action planning (innovation, opportunity, risk reduction, cost savings, efficiency). We will review the important concept of "carbon footprint": how to calculate it, and the how-to's of carbon reporting using major international protocols (such as CDP, GRESB, etc.). We will take a quick look at various mitigation and adaption measures that organizations may undertake, before closing out the session with some tips for success.
