The Business of Climate Change

Globally we are at a crucial point when it comes to climate change, but there are still multiple opportunities for business to help create a more sustainable future for all

Fires, floods and record-breaking temperatures have revealed its devastating environmental impact, but what’s the cost of climate inaction at a business level? Research by Deloitte says over 80 per cent of executives worldwide are concerned about climate change and how it affects their industries, yet many might not be aware of the amount of action required in the next 5-10 years in order to address it.

In this episode, The Business of Climate Change, we explore how climate change is impacting business, industry and global markets.

Professor Nick Wailes, Senior Deputy Dean and Director at AGSM is joined by Penny Joseph, Head of Resilience and Climate Change Adaptation at Sydney Water. Penny shares her insights on how we all can rise to the challenge of addressing climate change and create a brighter future.  

We also hear about the major investment benefits that come from commitment to sustainability from Kingsley Fong, an Associate Professor at the School of Banking and Finance at UNSW Business School.
