In many places, what might seem like relatively small changes to the climate are already approaching "breaking points" with outsized economic ramifications, sending ripples through economic and social systems. A better understanding of these breaking points — and the value at risk — can advance the debate over how much businesses and governments should invest to mitigate consequences and reduce the risk of future occurrences. This panel will discuss how business leaders can develop risk management frameworks across their portfolios, the role of financial intermediation (including banking, insurance, and investment), and how leaders can take action now to address short- and long-term effects of climate change.
