With the increase in damages from climate-related extreme events, the world is witnessing how changes in climate (and associated regulatory and market responses) in one location can send ripples through businesses globally. The World Economic Forum recently highlighted failure to address climate change adaptation as one of the top ten risks to the global economy.

In Australia there is a limited understanding about what climate change means for the business sector or how the sector is likely to respond. In response, NCCARF has commissioned a range of research projects that explore these issues.

Research presented at this forum explores issues surrounding climate change impacts and responses associated with insurance, boardroom engagement, strata title and climate legal risk.
