THE RIGHT WORKSHOP AT THE RIGHT TIME:
The financial world has recognized that sustainability is not only a question of goodwill, but also exposes material risk to the financial performance of investments and business overall.
Now in 2023, the global climate conference COP 28 will take place at Dubai, bringing world’s attention for sustainable finance, ESG and climate to the gulf region.Climate change is much more than an environmental issue. It is a societal, an investment issue. From changing coastal lines that impact real estate, to supply chain issues that impact manufacturing, companies’ bottom lines are affected by our changing climate.Through climate risk disclosure, investors do have a better picture of what they are buying. And while no company can completely mitigate climate change risks, those that are properly planning for impacts and taking steps to lower risk in the future tend to generate stronger returns over the long-term.
