#Climate Change


To develop ambitious climate strategies, companies must be able to translate climate science into business-relevant terms.

BSR's Climate Science Initiative helps companies understand the latest climate science, what it means for their business, and how they can respond by reducing risk and increasing resilience.

Please join us for a special meeting of BSR’s new collaborative initiative, which is open to all BSR members as a Sustainability Matters Webinar. 

In a one-hour "Climate Science 101" session, we will summarize the fundamental concepts of climate mitigation and adaptation, including pathways for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and setting science-based climate targets, as well as climate risks for business. We will show examples and provide recommendations on integrating climate science into sustainability strategies.

This is also an opportunity to explore our new collaborative initiative and evaluate whether it would help your team strengthen its climate programs.

Speakers

  • David Herring, Director of Communications and Education, Climate Program Office, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
  • James Hurrell, Director, National Center for Atmospheric Research
  • Edward Cameron, , BSR
