Download the recording

We hosted a two-part webinar where we discuss key and emerging issues from our Environmental Risk Outlook 2020. Our experts examine why sea level rise is a problem to be faced today as much as the future, outline what companies have to do to avoid falling foul of investors and regulators over climate risk disclosures and highlight why deforestation is moving up legislative and corporate agendas.

Our team of analysts also touch on the dangers of populist leaders rolling back environmental laws and how this contributes to the growing wave of protests and court cases facing businesses.
