Decision Making and Climate Security for Business

webinar description

Independent of government planning and preparedness for resiliency, business has decisions to make in terms of infrastructure and supply chain dependability. The first is a local issue, but the second is a global one, especially for international companies. Concerns are likely different depending on location and the inputs to development of goods and services. The focus of this webinar is how business can incorporate climate risks assessments and resiliency into its planning and investments in its supply chain, workforce and infrastructure.

Please join SSF and Arizona State University’s Global Security Initiative for the fourth webinar in the five-part series on Global Climate Security. This webinar examines how business is valuing climate impacts.
