In the first report of its kind, KPMG and Eversheds Sutherland surveyed the opinions of business leaders from more than 500 global companies about the risks and opportunities that climate change poses to their organisations. The survey found that corporate leaders are well aware of the risks associated with climate change and that climate risks equate to financial risks. At the same time, most leaders felt they weren’t yet equipped to deal with the challenges of creating a net zero-carbon business. Nevertheless, facing internal and external pressures, a majority indicated that they will need to take more aggressive steps toward decarbonisation, recognising that such a strategy is not only good for the environment but also good for business.
Corporate leaders need to address the risks associated with climate change and move toward decarbonisation.
