Climate change is affecting all sectors of the economy and the depth of its impacts will continue to grow. Boards must proactively integrate of climate considerations into oversight of enterprise risk and strategy to position their organizations for long-term success and avoid being at a disadvantage.
However, advancing this imperative is a complex undertaking and directors are grappling with where to begin, how to move forward and when to seek guidance. Important considerations such as how to proactively integrate climate change into the board agenda, ensuring the board has access to the necessary expertise and understanding why non-high-emitting sectors must take a proactive approach are top of mind.
