Topics

#Climate Change, #Sustainable Futures Lab


The operating environment for business is undergoing rapid disruption by emerging technologies, geopolitical volatility, changing social attitudes, nascent climate disruption, and heightened expectations from stakeholders, among other complex changes. To thrive amidst this turbulence, companies need to develop—and investors increasingly expect—more resilient business strategies.

Future scenarios are a powerful tool for enhancing resilience through the rigorous exploration of different possible futures. This highly interactive, hands-on workshop will introduce participants to scenarios and show how they can be used to improve strategic resilience, future-proof materiality assessments, and report on climate risks in line with the TCFD recommendations.
