With the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) placing pressure on investors and corporates to have a greater understanding of climate risks, our climate change webinar will examine the link between increasing temperature extremes and business disruption risks.
Listen to our webinar recording to find out how you can:
- Identify which regions and countries are most exposed to increasing temperature extremes over the next 30 years
- Understand which regions are expected to face the most significant economic impacts as intensifying levels of heat stress reduce worker productivity and hit export revenues
- Recognise the implications for power supply security as heatwaves become more frequent and energy demand for cooling soars
- Assess and mitigate physical climate risks

In this webinar, we identify the regions and countries expected to bear the economic brunt of rising temperatures, and discuss how rising rates of heat stress could limit worker productivity in key export sectors and how increased cooling demand could hit power supply continuity. Utilising our data, we demonstrate how you can not only comply with TCFD recommendations on disclosure but also make informed decisions to mitigate physical climate risks.
