The Economist’s Climate Risk Virtual Week convenes thought leaders, investors, regulators, policy makers, sustainability professionals and scientists to delve deep into conversations about the impact that climate-related risks will have on businesses and how management can respond. 


We will assess the best ways of measuring the exposure to physical and transition risk and how to improve disclosure and how to mitigate the threats from climate change litigation. We will put scenario analysis in practice so you can understand the implications of climate change for your business. The flip side of risk is opportunity –  identifying opportunities to enhance and develop new products and services based on a better understanding of climate risk will play a big part.


Over three days, we discuss the case for speedy action on climate risk.

On Day 1 we look at climate change risk management within the financial services, Day 2 tackles the impact of climate change on high-impact sectors and Day 3 puts scenario analysis in practice, as well as highlighting some of the climate change market opportunities you can tap into.
