1.5°C The Hot Topic: Part 1

Episode 1,   Sep 26, 2019, 12:00 AM

Are businesses ill-prepared for climate change? Let’s just say the report card for the five million UK businesses would read “can do better”. But there is so much opportunity available and tools to help – that’s what Maersk’s John Kornerup Bang and ICAEW CEO Michael Izza discuss with Mardi McBrien from the Climate Disclosure Standards Board and Amelia Womack from the Green Party.
Find out what energy providers, the finance sector and policymakers can do to help businesses, how climate change can be embedded in risk management and reporting, and how Maersk isn’t worried about changing weather patterns – they can deal with that – it’s the bigger picture that they’re working on.
Business journalist Louise Cooper is in the chair, asking the difficult questions we all want answers to, in the new podcast series More Than a Number from ICAEW.
