How Climate-Resilient are London’s Businesses?

03 July 2019, 09:30
City Hall, London

This business roundtable event explored London’s physical and transition climate risks and what this means for businesses in London. Exploring current knowledge about risks and opportunities, we revisited the business case for ensuring climate-resilient investment in buildings and infrastructure. Companies and sectoral organizations shared their experiences and explained what challenges exist. The discussion was intended to inform the Business and Industry chapter of the Third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA3). Through a series of brief talks and interactive sessions, we aim to:

  • Showcase adaptation efforts by businesses in London
  • Identify what works, where the challenges are
  • Discuss how better to create linkages in particular with sustainable finance, infrastructure investment, business continuity and puplic planning
  • Generate awareness of and input to the third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment
  • Support the LCCP’s efforts on adaptation in London and identify new areas for action
