Making Business More Competitive in a Changing Climate

08 May 2014

On 8 May, the London Climate Change Partnership (LCCP) initiated a programme of discussion and awareness events focussed on business growth, sustainability and security in the face of increasing occurrences of extreme weather. This initial event was hosted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and was organised in partnership with the City of London. Businesses of all sizes came to discuss their needs in a changing world and what actions can they take to make them more resilient.

Topics of discussion included:

  • Findings from the latest IPCC report: headlines for local business
  • Risks to supply chains in London and the UK from international climate impacts
  • How big business can support SMEs in increasing their resilience
  • Potential impacts on London’s competitiveness as a place to do business
  • How the insurance industry is adapting.
