Risky Business: Assessing Business Risks of Climate Change Globally with Secretary Henry Paulson and Greg Page

January 23, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Risky Business report, the first-ever analysis of its kind, summarizes the findings of an independent risk assessment of the potential costs of climate change on coastal infrastructure, energy services, labor productivity, agriculture, and public health, combining existing data on the current and potential impacts of climate change with original research that quantifies potential future costs across the United States. The analysis behind Risky Business expands upon the extensive research of other major climate reports and adds significantly more detailed local results, down to state-level impacts. While the costs results vary tremendously by location, the report shows that climate change has the potential to seriously affect businesses’ bottom lines if we continue on a business-as-usual path. America’s businesses are fully capable of rising to the challenges of climate change. Understanding the risks of climate change will enable let business leaders to capitalize on the opportunities that addressing climate change creates.
